The mod I did it myself, cost me $4 for the jack panel.
The cable $15, got it from china on ebay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/181179385700
aww man... i widh i have your talent :(
I wish! Maybe one day, I'll have the time, proper place to take such requests. It would be an awesome job though, to work customizing headphones only, one day
I wanted some closed back headphones a few years ago and fell in love with DT770s in the HiFi store, just had to have that bass sound!
A while back I gave them to my daughter and immediately started missing them (only used them occasionally, but sometimes it's just the right sound, and great on trains). So I bought another pair last year and found they are not quite as good, still great fun though.
Let's be honest, the bass is really OTT on these, however a lovely sound; as others have said here, great for movies and I find for older recordings. For example they sounded really great when watching a DVD of The Doors in concert from the late 1960s.
I was pleased to see they have an appreciation thread on this forum, if I was only allowed one pair of headphones it wouldn't be these, but I won't be parted from them again!
So my modified Beyers will be terminated with a Switchcraft 3.5mm plug (nickel plated).
As I am no longer able to use the factory (original) screw-on 6.3mm adapter plug, I am going to need a snap-on 6.3mm (1/4 inch) adapter when using my home amplifier.
Are there any that are better than others? I would prefer a silver plated or a gold plated one - looks really doesn't matter, but if it looks good, then i'd consider it a bonus.
If you guys were to buy one, where would you get it? Any special places? links would be much appreciated...
Thanks in advance.
