ATH-M50 Removable Cable Mod - Page 27

post #391 of 610
Could do a 5 inch cable like that with dual lock and secure it to the side of the cup.

Hey everyone, I'm having some issues doing this mod.. tried the female jack and tested it and no sound... wired back up the original wire and still no sound. No idea what went wrong here... if I had wired the female jack wrong the headphones should have at least worked when I wired the original cable back. Help is very much appreciated. thanks.

I also used the original wires that are inside the can, (black, red, green) I'm assuming black is ground and red/green are left and right. 

 

Tried wiring the jack and tested with a vmoda talk easy wire and no sound. Tried the original wire and just wired back the black to black, red to red, green to green and still no sound.

I just read in another thread that the original wires for the M50s are coated in enamel could this be the cause?

You need to use new wire to solder from the new jack and the drivers. The enamel is definitely the cause of the issue.

I want to mod my M50's but iv'e never soldered anything before and don't know how lol. I'm a complete noob. Has anyone sent their M50's to soundprofessionals to get the mod done? Im thinking about doing this since I would have no idea what im doing if i tried to mod it myself.

If you don't mind the cost, then go for it.

You could also find a competent member on here that might do it for you for cheaper.

To tin the wires in order to make a proper connection, you must burn off the enamel coating with a lighter.  You should end up with shiny copper.  Overdoing it with the lighter action can leave the copper black with oxidation, and thus useless; then you'll have to snip off the oxidized part and try again.  You only need to tin a few millimeters of each wire.  With my adjustable Hakko 936 soldering station, I just crank up the heat then burn away the enamel and tin the wires in one go quickly.

You can easily find youtube videos on soldering to help you get the hang of it.  There might even be a video or two on working with enamel-coated wires specifically.
