ATH-M50 Removable Cable Mod - Page 29

post #421 of 708

Depends on how the female jack in the cup is wired.  It could be that the cable is wired backwards instead.  Some handiwork on your own part would be simple desolder/resolder just to switch left and right around.

...Seriously?

 

If yes, tell the people you bought it from. I'm sure they would be more than happy to sort you out.

Yea seriously. I did talk to sound professional customer service a long time ago but I can't recall of I had to pay for the shipping cost. However the whole shipping process and waiting was too much of a hassle for me so I didn't do it. I'll try it again just because I guess I have time now.

All you have to do is swich the red and green wire that is connected to the jack then it should be fine:)

It doesn't really matter how you do it but for the sake of explaining this, do it the way I wrote in the picture. I'm assuming you don't have a multimeter to determine which is left and right, so your left and right may get switched.

Nice clean job, by the way.

I have a question for all of you guys, since the right thing to do is use new wire (one that can be easily soldered), what do you guys do with the old cable? the one that you unsoldered from the headphone? re-use it or throw it away?

Bcuz my friend told me it is extremely hard to solder this enameled wires making it so hard that doesn't worth the time spent, better off buying a new one, but my point is that i would like to use the coiled cable, which is quite expensive if bought separately.

So i guess my question is, do you solder a plug on the cable that you have previously unsoldered from the headphone, even if it is a hard task, or do you just use a new one? Btw, by you, i mean all you guys in general..

You can solder a 3.5mm jack on the end of it, it's just more of a pain to do it on enameled wire. I did it on a pair of M50s for a user in this thread and it turned out fine, but it will be more difficult for a soldering noon. You really have to get to the bare wire. If you don't think you can do that, just use the solders that were used on the driver on the jack. Those will make a good connection.

Anyone know how to get the stock 3.5mm plug open so I can snip the wire shorter and re-solder it back on?

It isn't meant to be opened up, so it's probably glued together. Just order a 3.5mm jack and use it. They're pretty cheap. Rean (Neutrik) are simple to use, you can get them pretty cheap off eBay. Radio Shack sells them too if you dont want to wait for shipping.

Alright thanks man. Any chance you could post a link to one? I can't tell the difference between a bad one and a decent quality one.

Great connectors. Easy to use. Good solder points. Nice, subtle look, and a brand name to back it up.
