Beyer DT770 Pro/ 80 Detachable cable MOD - Page 12

post #166 of 178
Thanks so much jfunk! Yeah I think I might go with a 3.5 mm, it seems too much work to do a balanced xlr (unless it's REALLY worth it haha) and mini xlr cables are hard to come by unless you make them yourself. Also like you said 3.5 mm is easier to fit.

I went ahead and got some Mogami W2893 since it seems that is what most people use. I think I'll get the jack on Amazon unless I decide to do both sides and make it balanced haha.

Hi all!

 

I modded my headphones successfully. This is what I used:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ML4A2Q/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Mogami W2893 (Purched off Performance Audio)

Rubber Washer

Loctite Plastic Bonding System

Soldering Iron

Fine Electric Solder 60/40

Dremmel (For those of you that don't have one I got this one and it worked great http://www.amazon.com/WEN-2307-Variable-100-Piece-Accessories/dp/B00A8DXKXS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1424713322&sr=8-2&keywords=dremmel)

 

Notes: I had to use a dremmel to make the whole a bit bigger to not only allow the chassis to fit but also so it could be snug and I could fit the rubber washer on.

There it is. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

What's the best cable to use to go from the right driver to the left?

I use wires out of Mogami w2799 for that, they're 26awg each.

I have leftover cable from Mogami W2893 that I'll probably use since I think it is the same cable used in the w2799. Did you just braid them and sheath? What did you use as a sheath/cover?

Yeah they share the same wires. I've done it a couple ways, 1/8" nylon multifilament and I've braided them individually with type 1 paracord.
post #173 of 178
Which do you like better?

Eh, I'm impartial. They both serve the same purpose. I guess the individually braided way would look a little more fancy to some people.

Do I have to use shrink wrap to hold down the nylon mtifillament?

You can just put it over both cables, tie a knot on the inside of the cup on one of the parts where the sleeve is, route it through the headband and into the other cup, and then tie a knot there as well in a place where the sleeve is. It won't move that way and you wont have to use heat shrink. Obviously, allow some slack of extra wire for the parts connecting to the drivers.

What do you mean tie a knot inside the cup? Can you take a picture of yours?

I don't have a pair like that anymore, my DT770-80 ohm is long sold. I have dual entry Beyers now. I don't know how to describe it any better in words.
