A few pages back in this thread I posted a close-up photo of this plug inserted into the Mad Dog ear cup.
It may have been your thread that I read about the cable / cup mod. A minor scraping here and there is pretty easy to accomplish. Which cable did you use for the mod? I've used the Neutrik 90 degree 1/8th plugs before and it's pretty neat how they go together. However, I've found that one can't really use a cable like the Mogami Gold Neglex,as it tends to have a diameter that is a bit overwhelming for that connector.
Edit: I found your thread. I realize that you used the original V-Moda cable with the Neutrik connector. I hate wires that are enamel coated and thin as you've described. Some of the Sennheiser headphones (HD-428, 429, etc.) series has some real thin conductor cable that happen to be treated also. But, Sennheiser has stuffed the three cables into one outer sleeve and I believe they've used enough enamel on the cables that they didn't use any plastic insulation on them. A real PITA to work with and solder.
Which pads do you have on your Mad Dogs? Are those the Dog Padz?
