How to Open Wire splitter thing on Grado SR-60i

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

The little area where the one wire splits to go into each headphone cup. One of the wires coming out of this box is falling out, and I lost audio on my right side again. I figured if I open it and cover it with electrical tape, I could fix it for a few more weeks. So, I was wondering how do i go about opening it and if anyone has any guide on recabling it, which I may eventually do.

 

Thanks,

Trevor

Its injection molded around the cables. Sorry.

I managed to remove the plastic around the wires, encased each of them with electrical tape which managed to fix it for a few hours. However, they are dead again. So, now I figured I would just go ahead and replace the wires. So, anybody have any reccomendations on wires, would prefer to keep them cheap, under $20 if possible. I have experience soldering and all the tools to do it.

 

Thanks

this is a silly question, but do you know how to braid?

 

If you're into the DIY thing - -

look into buying two lengths of different colored 20-28ga wire, braid em together, then solder a Neutrik jack on the source end of the cable.

 

Viola. fancy custom cable.

 

(and under $20)
