ATH-M50 Removable Cable Mod - Page 7

post #91 of 708

You can cut in outside the cup, the reason I cut it inside the cup is because the strain relief was hard for me to get out of the cup.  I didn't want to pull the strain relief and risk pulling the wires that are connected to the driver off the solder pads, so that's why I did that.

So im cutting the cable from the inside, not the outside of the headphone? Because i read somewhere earlier in the post it was the outside of the headphone. Just wanna double check. Thanks :)

I used a brand new tip and electronics-grade silver-bearing solder. It has a very small diameter. There were better suggestions from the more experienced folks in this thread.

Anyone who has already done it is not going to be able to do a video showing you how to do it. It's kind of a one time deal.

How hot was it?
post #101 of 708

How hot was what? If you mean how hard was it, the answer is: not very hard if you have small fingers.

I suggest you look at this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/559367

If that is not helpful enough, go through the thread from page 1 and you will find answers.

Has anyone found a good auxiliary cable for after the mod? I was going to buy the beats solo cable with controltalk but alot of them online are fake. Are there any cables that are about 3 feet long, have a L-shaped connector and maybe with control talk? I was looking at v moda crossfade lp cable but they're out of stock online.

Yes! I got the beats solo one too, but didn't like it. I ended up buying this one and it's PERRRRFECT! Has everything you just mentioned, except it's about 6 ft. There's also a button on the mic that, with the iPhone controls play/pause/next track/prev track on music, answer/hang up on calls, and holding gives you Siri.

I won't be posting with help anymore until you at least make the effort to do those two things.
