I'm sorry for your Dead T50rp . No chance on creating a new solder "Dot" or scratching the varnish on the trace?
--- After trying some various cable replacements, it appears that my solder "dot" on one my drivers has vanished. I'm careful with the iron - properly tin the tip, 15V iron, etc. - yada, yada, yada. Now, my beloved Fostex only have the right channel working. Last evening, I felt as though there had been a death in my family - I actually loved them that much. The updates to them - oh, how the sound changed and morphed into something that one could really appreciate when they would listen to them. Now ... it's gone in just a flash. [insert crying emoticon here]
However, I think I'm going to bite the bullet. They have stock at Amazon where Amazon is fulfilling the orders for one of the vendors. The price is $105.00 for a new pair. However, I can get "next day" shipping and receive them tomorrow- Saturday for just $19.00 more. I'm going to take that option. The vendor that I purchased the original pair from on eBay - SonicFiber, was only charging $83.00 a few weeks back with free shipping. Now, they've jacked their price to $119.00, with free shipping. All the demand for these things is making the price spike a bit.
They are just a "fun" pair of headphones. Even at $125.00 for a complete pair of headphones, I feel a bit less guilty about doing something stupid to them - unlike a $140.00 pair of Magnum drivers.
