Dre Beats Studio DIY teardown and modify question... - Page 2

post #16 of 20

Here's the 3.5mm and power cord

The cable does not detach from the headphones

 

 

Underneath the rings on either side is, well, nothing.

If you look on the right side in this picture, that side should have the USB charger.  That was the side I unscrewed and split open (you can kind of see the inside).  That side had a square spot that looked like it could house a battery, but nothing was there.  I didn't take it far enough apart where I could hold it open and take a picture at the same time.  The left side had no screws and I was afraid I would break little plastic tabs that were holding it together.

Ok, I was too curious.  I took them apart again and took more pictures:

How about those pads sitting in the upper left?  Might be a good spot for a battery cable...

Oh, I thought we were still talking about the Studio 1.0, not the 2.0! Is this the left earcup?

It looks like it can hold a square Li-ion like this one.

On this set, it is the right earcup.  The left side has the cord.

Ok, so it looks like they didn't populate anything for the charge circuit.  For some reason I thought what I was looking at were solder points for components on the other side, but they are simply non-populated surface mount components.  I reassembled the headphones now and plugged them in and will most likely remain confined to an outlet for the foreseeable future.  That's ok, I have a desk job :-)

 

Thanks for your help!
