Hi guys,

 

i am new to this so please don't rip on me but i have a question, is it possible? to add a audio to audio i/o on the sennheiser HD 380 pro? why am i asking this? well i don't really like that its does not have a inter changeable audio able but i am fine that it CAN be replaced. also I'm not a fan of coiled cables so i would like to know if there were any cables that are straight and compatible with the HD 380 pro. i have searched the web and i couldn't fine any that grantee that it was compatible.

 

so i would like your input on this, please and thank you.

Err.. I am really not sure what you're asking?

Audio I/O == DA AD converter? and you want that in your HD 380? what?

Sure, all headphones could be modified to have an input jack where you can plug in a cable to.

 

Something like this? http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/119314/post-your-grado-mods#post_1399475

yeah like that but can you mod it for my hd 380 pro, also does this lower the quality of sound/music at all?

No, that's like asking does a headphone plug lower sound quality? Does it?

Uhm... add input jacks to your headphones, and take photos; then you "mod it for" your hd380.  It's absolutely the same principle. ;)

I won't get into sound quality, just do it.

not sure if I understand but you want to make a regular headphone into a detachable cord headphone, right?

 

i did it with the Sony V6

it had a very long and coiled cord that i didnt liked.

 

you need to open up the headphone, cut the cord and solder a 3.5 stereo jack, then you will be able to use any 3.5 mm stereo cable estension

I buy the DYI stuff in Markertek, never had a problem and they have quite a large inventory, as for the jack something like this would work, I have had experiences with this one, but if the cups are thick it wont be abble to stick out enough as to conect the plug in it. they have more tho, you should look around first.

I really like Redco.com for wire and connectors in small quantity.
