post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Would anyone tell me or guide me on how to mod a headphone with non-detachable cable to detachable cable .
Like this guys > http://www.head-fi.org/t/553483/ath-m50-removable-cable-mod

It would really be much more easy and increases its portability !

(I'm 15 and I dont really understand on how to mod a headphone) so please kindly help me biggrin.gif

what headphones? or better yet, just buy a headphone with a detacheable cable. not all female jacks (like neutrik) would fit inside a headphone without touching the driver.

You could also do what superlux did with some of their phones, and terminate the cable with a jack one inch from the driver, and use an extension cable.

It was actually really easy. I'm not even the best at soldering and I had no problems at all. There's plenty of room to solder the new wires on after cutting the old ones off the driver. Really, the part that took the longest was making the hole on the bottom wide enough to put the jack through. It only took a couple minutes of filing and went right in!
