ATH-M50 Removable Cable Mod - Page 11

post #151 of 708

I never had problems with enamel when doing this. I used wire strippers to remove the black sheath and then the black, red and green sheath for each of the wires. Then I tinned each wire using silver electronics-grade solder (after my thicker generic solder wouldn't stick) and tested by touching the leads on the jack and got audio without a problem. Maybe the problem is the solder.

This thread took me from a non-working pair of ATH-M50s to a modded, detachable cable set.

 

Much obliged.

Did anyone send theirs to the Sound Professionals that the dude earlier was advertising for? Reviews?

Worth 40? I'm nervous as hell....

 

Oh, what are you guys using to secure the chassis inside of the cup? Hot Glue? Silicon?

 

Hows that looking.... cosmetically? Anyone got any closeups?

I plan on sending my M50s into SP. Will report back here once I get them back.

You have to buy a male plug and solder it on.

I'm looking to get rid of my modded Limited Edition M50's if anyone is interested. They're roughly a week old and look new, still have the original packaging.IMG_20120807_234104-1.jpg

I'm just gonna buy a pair from SP with the removable cable mod already done, (For about $150 shipped!)

My only question is coiled or straight cable?

post #160 of 708

What's it matter? You can replace the cable at that point. If you are interested, I am selling mine for $140 with a Mic'ed/Control cable, and a pair of Beyerdynamic DT250 Velour pads: http://www.head-fi.org/t/617290/modded-ath-m50s-use-with-iphone-velour-dt250-pads

The question is why is everyone selling their M50s - what did I miss ?

Only two people right?

what do you think of the jacks he mentioned??

 

 

 

thanks

The socket just looks so large ;D. And about the male plug - i prefer Neutrik stuff but since i don't know anything about vermouth I'd say give it a shot. It will work I guess ;)

 

@jadawgis - thanks for pointing that out - but I've seen a few people wanting to get rid of their m50s and I actually just wanna know what's their alternative.

Have fun!

 

 

Personally, I use this (except the Kobicon brand) and it works great. Never tried the barrel plugged ones, but dont' think I'd want to. Those just look too large to fit in the M50's.
