Recabling AKG HD 242

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello !

The cable of my AKG HD 242 is in very bad shape, I got it since 2 years and I love the sound from it. The problem is I don't know if it is easily possible to recable my headphones ? I searched on google but did not found anything or anyone who tried and succeded to recable it.


So, here I am : Anyone got it recabled ? What do I need to make it work ?

Thank you very much !

Try getting it repaired or something. I don't think the cord on that headphone is removable.

Here is service manual for 242 HD , so you can get a bigger picture what has to be done to get to the cables (wiring diagram is also included). If that is too complicated for you then send it to AKG service or just extend cable from the "healthy" part, not the most elegant solution but it will save you some trouble for sure.

My warranty is expired since 15 days frown.gif

Thank you for your link, I think I will try to do it myself . Speaking of cables, which should I choose ?

K601/701 cable is good and cheap.

 

Good luck

Buying an adaptator for 6,3mm to 3,5mm won't cause any problem for 3.5mm inputs ?

Thank you again

No problem, 

 

I think there is 3.5 mm stereo jack under 6.3 mm one (or the other way around ) so you can use them both, at least that's how things were with my k601. If it's not included, adapter will not make any problems.
