Can I use a 4 pin mini XLR for this mod or is it too big?
post #604 of 610

Like I said in the DIY questions thread, it's probably going to be too big if you dont want to affect the sound in that cup. You could probably modify an in-line mini xlr connector and mount it to the headphones so it looks like the M50x design, that wouldn't take up any of the inner cup volume. It could look pretty sweet to if you can pull off the mod.

Use this chassis and jacks... no need to cut the internal case and very minimal in size.
With locking features , which it good to have

I wouldn't call that minimal at all, but it does look like a nice jack. If you don't mind having the 3.5mm jack sticking out like that, that would be the best connector to use. I personally like the lower profile outer look.

It does sticking out abit for the locking mechanism...on the internal side this chassis doesn't take away much space.

I saw this mod before I bought my chassis, but its to expencive and bulky... So at the end I have gone with my chassis and it was cheap, and the cutting was easy because I've used the soldering iron for that and it came out nice and tight, and didn't changed the sound...
So im happy.

Nicely done, I did a similar mod using a modified inline locking jack.   Like  yours it moves the bulk of the jack outside of the driver casing to minimize the need to remove a bunch of the material inside.

 

The part I used was http://www.markertek.com/Connectors-Adapters/Audio-Adapters/3-5mm-Adapters/Calrad-Electronics/30-297.xhtml

 

As I mentioned, I modified the jack by cutting the threaded barrel portion off to create lock ring.

It hard to explain but when I get my comment count up enough for upload privileges, I will post pictures.
