Interesting thoughts Plainsong...... thanks!

 Here`s my step by step cable replacement instruction guide for the Beyerdynamic T50p.



 




  1. First remove the earpad by gently pulling on the edge. The pads are glued with reusable glue. You will be able to put them back with the same glue.

  2. Second remove the driver using a sharp knife by wedging it gently between the driver and the cup. (See arrow on picture)

  3. Remove the cable with your iron and note that red dot on the driver identify the positive. Also I like to confirm the the driver is 30 mm in size.

  4. When reinstalling the driver in the cup make sure to allign the little key on the driver properly and press firmly on the driver to snap it back in place. Make sure it`s snapped all around to get a good seal.BeyerT50P_5.jpg


 



For sound impression with my previous cable (the Orange seen in first picture) the bass impact was better. Ì replaced it because it was to big for portable use. I was satisfy with the SQ of the original cable but for my use in my office it was to short. The cable you see in the final picture is from Westone 64 inch use for their Elite earphone. I report the SQ impression later

I just wanted to further derail the thread and clarify a bit about the TMA-1. I'd do it in the TMA-1 megathread, but it ain't too friendly in there. There was a comment about vocals being behind everything else. And to some extent, I agree. I've heard worse from a headphone. I think they're further back there on the t50ps, and way further back on other headphones. It is what it is. It seems like every closed headphone I generally like has this problem, but for my trusty dt250s.

 

So yeah, vocals on the TMA-1 are a tad bit behind other instruments, but the same can be said of the Beyers, so yeah. It's not so bad that they're drowned out on either one. Every company has their own idea of how to wrap up the sound and present it.

@Twinster - Thanks for the pics. Now I know what to do tonight.

I have an APS cable which is too stiff for my ETY's and I was thinking it would go well with the T50p.

nice Twinster, thanks for shooting that

I should have found something else to do tonight. I wanted to change the cable on the T50p now I can only get sound in one side. Since this was my first try in changing cables I did not succeed. I also left some ugly marks on the housing of the driver which does work :-( Well - I thought it was easy but I have to say that these headphones are clearly not designed to have their cables changed so unless you really know what you are doing do not do it.

Rasmushorn I'm sorry for your T50p.  I've to admit that the drivers are a bit hard to open (I left some mark too) but the posts on the drivers are very well design (seperate post from the main tiny wire to the magnet) so less chance to burn it.  Can you confirmed that you have wired the positive/negative of the left and right chanel properly?

 

The tip of phono plug = Left positive

The middle of the plug = Right positive

Third section of plug = Left & Right negative

Can you verified if the tiny lead to the magnet are still connected?

Yeah I measured that there is a connection using a Multimeter. So I have the connections soldered right. What have gone wrong is that the VERY thin wires from the tiny pcb to the driver itself might be damaged and they are so small I have problems connecting them again. I almost can't see them without a magnifying glass and then my soldering abilities are not good enough to fix that kind of small things. I am sure someone who is very good at it will bring it to life again. The driver itself has not been damaged as far as I can see.

Oh I hope some DIY King can bring them back to life for you! Yikes!

The first time I tried to recable a Beyer driver, I melted that very thin wire running from the driver to the wire terminal as well.  I was really bummed.  Had to order a new set of drivers.  If you are not very careful about not leaving the soldering iron on there for too long, this is very likely to happen.  I have not personally attempted to recable a Beyer driver since then.

That is exactly what I did. I am 100% sure that my hybris will result in me never trying to recable any Beyer again...

I think that it might still be rescued - just not by me that's for sure.

the real question is...how much do you want for the recabled ones heh:)

So anyone seen the new dt1350? The word in that thread is that the headband is smaller.

Haven't seen them yet. But what are they? An 80 Ohm version of the T50p? Or are there other differences?
