ATH-M50 Removable Cable Mod - Page 16

post #226 of 682

I used the Lumberg KLB 4. Thanks to everyone who's posted about their attempts. I'll try to remember to open mine up again and get some pics of the inside.

I suggest reading through the posts again if you're still not sure what to do for this mod, especially determinedd's post. If it still seems daunting I'd probably consider not attempting it.

I went with a quick disconnect incase I get the wire caught on an edge. I don't want to rip out the plug or cup on accident lol

Here is a shot of new solder joints I made to the speaker. Much stronger/secure and slightly thicker wire. Trying to tin the factory wires resulted in a tapestry of obscenities

I hope this helps others.

anybody got any reviews on the mod from soundprofessionals? It might just be easier with my schedule to get it done like that.

I got mine done by them, took about a week.  Looks really slick and works with no problems, really makes the headphone more versatile.  My only issue is that the cable they sent was bad, the connector wasn't soldered properly and kept coming off, they made it right though, they gave me a shipping label to ship back the bad cable and they sent me a new one after determining it was their fault the cable was bad.  So in total, took about two weeks to get everything done.

Sometimes if you want something done right you gotta do it yourself
post #234 of 682

I just finished my mod, used 24ga speaker wire to substitute for the internal wiring instead of dealing with the coated wires.  I'd post pics, but I keep getting a "problem submitting this to the server" error when clicking on the insert image button...

Alright, before I do this mod I want to check that I'm getting this right:

PH-666J-B.jpg

so the tall silver metal is the one I attach with the black wire, the gold metal is the one I attach with a red wire, and the shorter silver metal is the one I attach with green wire?

also, do I need to apply flux to the metals that I'll be soldering or is it okay? Thanks.

Remove pads. Remove screws. Open cups.

if i get the ones already modded by sound professionals does anyone know if it comes with short cable

 

or what kind of cable do i buy ive never had to get my own headphone cable and i want to make sure i get the right thing i need like 4 foot one

Any cable shoudl be fine.  Depends on if you care about the "quality" of the cable.  I usually use monoprice, and they have a perfect length 3' one that I'm using.  I terminated the end of the OEM cable that I have so I got a long coiled one in case I needed it.  I usually use monoprice for all my cabling needs, since the price is spot on.

 

If you're looking for some pricier premium cables, then you can probably find them by searching this forum.
