ATH-M50 Removable Cable Mod - Page 51

post #751 of 755

I ended up just spending the extra $10 to get the X version with removable cable. Even though they are still proprietary cables, the 4ft option is nice.

Not really.  Sennheiser's using the exact same 2.5mm locking connector with a number of their current headphones.

Hello Head-fi, long time lurker here. I did this mod to my beloved ath m50 and after a long battle with the wires on the driver I made the maybe stupid desicion of desoldering them completely. I then soldered on some old speaker wires and it worked, to my surprise. But the problem now is I've noticed a significant drop in quality and loudness in my headphones. Could this be on which aux cable I'm using? I've used a 2 m HAMA Aluline cable, a even the cable that came with my newly bought Sony mdr-1a (120 usd in Sweden, couldn't pass on that). This was also my first time soldering, so I don't know if I ******* up something in there. Do the headphones also need to be burned in again after this mod?

No, you messed something up while soldering man. There is good news though, Audio Technica sells those drivers for like $12 (USD).
