Just received my Walnut cups. (Via GD-Audio: 2 weeks delivery time)

Time I used to make my own silver cable mod for the FA-003 and finish mod on my amp.

 

Not only looks much nicer. Sound even better :-) Very happy.

Which 1/8" plugs did you use to attach your cable to the earcups?
post #2677 of 3013

Hi,

 

I used the Oyaide 3.5mm 1/8".

You need to open the headphone and remove the two plastic pieces which hold the original cable (Red and Blue)

They are glued, but you can easily remove them.

Unscrew the headphones, unscrew the little PCBA plate holding the female 1/8.

You can then easily take out the plastic parts.

Screw back the little pcba's with the female mini jack.

You can now use any 1/8 plug up to 9 mm diameter at the housing.

Oyaide is 8 mm. Mini Neutrik is 9 (certain type)

 

In total 10 min work. Lot of improvement.

Let me know if you need more info.

Marcel

Does that mean the mini Neutrik will also fit?
post #2679 of 3013

Neutrik REAN NYS231G 3.5mm Mini Jack

This one has a max body diameter of 9 mm. It should just fit.

(if you meassure the opening on your headphones you will see it is 9 mm.Or the diameter of the plugs on your current cable)

I went for the Oyaide as it has a body of 8 mm and the plug looks a bit nicer.

 

PS: even if you take the two plastic parts out, you will still be able to fit the old cable.

 

It looks so much better with a customised cable and you will have a slight improvement in sound detail/stage.

 

You can't go wrong.

i tried this neutrik rean sometimes ago and it won't fit the hole but only just a little bit large, maybe the oyaide that you told earlier would be fit.

Okay thanks for that.

 

I made my cable with Oyaide mini jack, which housing is only 8mm diameter. Fits perfectly.

If anyone no longer needs their old cable due to making a new one I will gladly pay the shipping for the old one.

Thanks,

Steve

Got mine about a week ago! Very pleased with it so far!

Few questions:

One pad's thicker than the other, is that normal?

Should the line on the outside of the pad be on the bottom or the top?

I'm using a Hippo Box+ right now, anything that would improve the sound more around USD100?

Thanks biggrin.gif

The seem on the pad can be where ever you like. I have mine at the bottom lining up with the cable exit. And all my pads are the same thicknes

To anyone who has heard both the FA003 and DT48E, how do they compare? 

 

I'm looking to spend <$400 on a closed-back headphone, and want something accurate to the recording. I already own the FA003, which are very accurate, but they have a very peculiar presentation. I could be misinterpreting the sound, but I have noticed an echo? Which really bugs me!
