Beyer DT770 Pro/ 80 Detachable cable MOD - Page 6
Gear mentioned in this thread:
What wires do you use to wire the driver to the jack? Can you use the wires already soldered on the stock headphones? Would any insulated wires work? Also, does the type of solder matter?
Sorry, new to all this.

I used some wire I bought off eBay from a user named navships, I wouldn't use it again though, it's very rigid. If you want to use something cheap use some Mogami w2893 wires. You have to strip it out of the rubber sheathing, but it works nicely for this. I wouldn't try using the wires that are already used inside the headphone, they're enameled and will be hard to solder. Just use some different wire and save yourself the headache.
If anyone is interest this scheme works great http://cdn.head-fi.org/a/ac/acfc54c7_vbattach5125.jpg
and thanks Mr Eleventy
Let the modding begin.
If I remember correctly, the signal is the one on the far right, and the ground it on the far left. The center is nothing, just a place for you to solder the other driver's signal to. It's this way unless you have the OLD DT770. It had a pcb mounted on the inside of the cup (I liked modding one like that SO MUCH better)
You should wire the right driver's wires right to the 3.5mm chassis, and not to the left cup's driver. It's easier that way and it reduces the rick of messing something up.
