If memory serves, I believe the forum software enforces a minimum post count before a new member is permitted to start a thread. It's not huge.

Anyway, welcome to Head Fi

That's really cool. I think because you're a new user, you're not allowed to post threads yet. Why not just post your build in this thread instead?

Here's the album:

Sony MDR 7506 Bluetooth + Detachable Cable + Beyerdynamics Pads Mod

http://imgur.com/a/lORBc

 

Pictures in random order.

 

Time it took me alltogether: 4 hours.

Average soldering skills required, used a 3$ soldering iron from the Dollar store. Make sure to use flux, it makes everything easier!
Female aux from B&H Electronics in NYC for 3$

Beyerdynamics from same store for 23$. Turns out Amazon with shipping is often more expensive! Buy locally and support biz where you live!

All cables from old 3.5mm aux cable.

Drilled holes with drill nad drilling machine.

Used this bluetooth adaptor and took it apart: http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-5mm-USB-Bluetooth-Wireless-Receiver-Audio-Music-Adapter-Car-Home-AUX-Speaker-/201210654465?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ed916ef01

 

Listening time: Around 6 hours. Could take a larger battery as there is much more space but I don't really mind, I charge them every night when I go to bed.

 

Sound quality: I sealed any possible holes with glue. Blind test of right/left with a couple of my friends, nobody could tell the difference. Can't tell the difference myself, bass/treble sounds exactly the same to me.

 

Definitely worth it. Bluetooth headphones are so much more comfortable to wear, now I really loathe cables. And the beyerdynamics mod ... of course...

Granted, I'm not a very experienced audiophile, although I prefer my music in .ogg or .wav format. I also use these for DJing, so I left the detachable cable mod and soldered a male aux connector to the original coiled cable which I now use for DJing. The bluetooth module has a microphone built in and theoretically once could use it for phone calls etc. but the location of it isn't the best and the person you're talking to wouldn't be able to hear you clearly. Instead i bought this cable http://v-moda.com/1-button-speakeasy-cable/ which I connect to the headphones and thus use them as a headset. If you really want to go out of your way you could solder the small mic (seen in picture 4 on the left: round and golden, connects to underside of PCB) to a longer cable and run that cable to the outside of the headphones/closer to the wearer's mouth.

Also, the range of the bluetooth module is EXCELLENT. I forgot my phone in my room, walked to the kitchen with my headphones on (through a door, down a 30 feet hallway, around the corner and through another door) and only then did the sound cut/did I realize that I left my phone.

That's awesome! You're a freaking artist. I share your dual loves of velour pads and bluetooth receivers. I use this receiver:
http://www.amazon.com/Bluetooth-Mpow-Streambot-Streaming-Smartphones/dp/B00MJMV0GU/ref=pd_sim_107_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0K816EM8C12ZXDXY7YF9
daisy chained to a fiio e6, and double sided taped to the side of the cans. Oh, and they're m50's instead of v6's, but both cans' measurements are really close to each other. I'm really impressed with what you did there. How tight is the fit between the guts and the driver? it looks like you've got like 1 or 2 mm at best. Did you have to remove any internal padding or anything like that?

Also, would you mind drawing out a diagram of how you wired it all together? I'm curious to see how you integrated the bluetooth receiver with the female jack.

Yeah, cool! Wanted the bluetooth mod but didn't want to have big adapters/receivers/amps strapped to the side of my head. The bluetooth module is fairly thin, there should be around 2-3 mm bw the driver and the module. Bw the female jack and the driver there's around 1mm distance.

Volume is OK, not much quieter than with cord. I use them mainly with my phone and VLC media player and can adjust the EQ and cancel out a few of the MDR7506s imperfections. This bluetooth module is loud enough to be used without an amp.

 

Drawing skills aren't the best but this should help:

 

I could've soldered the wires directly from the BT receiver to the driver and thus used shorter cables but decided to solder them to the female jack. Trial and error and i connected the right ones to the right connections. from there i had cables soldered to the driver already.
