Sorry if it has been posted before (I'm sure it has....:o) but

-does this specific model require an adapter/connector for a "normal" dap (ie ipod 5th gen video)

-what about the need for a connector when paired with iphone?

 

Thanks!!

needs connector with iphone, not with ipod. Basically any product that supports microphone head sets (eg a phone) needs an adapter.

 

cheapest adapter for 1$ here, I bought one, haven't received yet, will report back:

Holy poop batman!  I was NOT expecting this much quality from these things.  Granted I've listened for about 1 minute.  But still, they are much less bassy than I expected (mh1 model).

 

Unfortunately, they do not work plugged directly into any of my 3.5mm devices.  I need to use a 1/4" adapter into my sound interface to hear the sound properly.  I'm thinking a small extension type 3.5 cable might fix the other devices?  I assume it's not a matter of pin layout, since the sound interface works?  But rather the contacting?

 

UPDATE:  I have a feeling this might be the best $20 I've ever spent on audio gear.

Also, this doesn't work with the C5 JDS amp...  don't see why?

 

UPDATE:

 

I tried them with this:

 

and they work fine.  I'll have to grab a single extender.

how can some of you guys put up with this horrendous cable? I tried wearing them over the ear and it was still screwing with the sound big time. The sound itself is decent, though.

post #2527 of 3318

I find the best way to wear them is the left short wire earpiece straight down, and the longer wired right earpeice over the ear.

post #2528 of 3318
The "correct" way to wear them, as designed, is with the longer section behind your neck. That way nothing is hanging and you can take them out and let them hang down your chest while they're out.

Simply bridge the mic and gnd contacts on the minijack

 

I scratched away the black insulation between the 2 and filled with solder then buffed with very fine emery paper...works like a charm in all my devices now

Here is a standard 3 pin and a 4 pin connector - the difference is the extra band (see red arrow). 

 

 

All you need to do is scratch out the black ring and fill the gap with solder to connect the two sections, then smooth it down so it doesn't stick out.

I'm a DIY kinda guy, but I would hate to ruin these since I got them for $20 and would have to spend more to get them again. :-P  Sounds easy though.

post #2534 of 3318

very easy to do...

 

otherwise recable some..[not as easy]
