Every sub 50 dollar headphone I buy always break. I enjoy the sound some of these make as well as the small form factor such as the ksc75 but the jack eventually wears out. I have found no simple solution other than to recable the KOSS KSC75.

I have little experience recabling but I am going to try it out on my KOSS KSC75.

My goal with this recable is to never have to worry about the headphone jack breaking ever again.

I'd like to find the bang for buck cable for my KSC75 that will make it so that I don't ever have to worry about the jack breaking (I need a good sturdy cable).

Here is basically the only three questions I have.

1.) What is the best cable I can buy for my KSC75 and where do I buy it from?

2.) Is there a recabling guide specifically for the KSC75 somewhere? It seems simple enough but I've never recabled before. Is it just soldering the new cable onto the KOSS Drivers? Is that the only step?

 

3.) I've made a list of the stuff to buy for this project. Can you guys just confirm that I'll be able to get my project done by just buying these items?

Will I be able to make my ultimate unbreakable wire?

Thanks. I appreciate all recommendations.
