Beyer DT770 Pro/ 80 Detachable cable MOD - Page 13

Ah, I found the dremel to be a great tool as well. I though I would be able to use the nut on the inside of the can, but there were too much of the filaments, so I just used hot glue.

Yeah I've seen it done with hot glue as well. As long as everything works :D. Did you recable the left driver to the right?

Ah, no I kept the original cable between the drivers. I was a little uncertain of how to wire it all so kept it. Probably going to change it later, but for now it works.

Someone just send in some "well loved" DT990 with some locking 3.5mm jacks for us to fit - these look like an interesting option as well if you are worried about pulling the jack out but the socket also fits standard jacks as well

Pretty sweet. I wonder why in the world they kept the stock cable though, it's a POS.

These will fit a standard jack? Where can I get some adapters?

Yes you can fit standard jacks into these locking sockets. Here are links to where he got them from

But I can't use my current jack with the lock socket, correct?

you can use a standard 3.5mm jack in that socket as well as the locking ones - that hole in the middle is a normal 3.5mm jack (TRS) then it has a thread on the outside to use with the locking ones so any standard stereo 3.5mm jack will plug into that hole

Yeah but I'd have to go and replace my current jack and that would be a PITA because it is glued and sht.

Are there any locking 3.5mm cables that don't require a special jack?
