Looks good. you should rewire the connecting wire with something less brittle/flimsy looking while you're at it. smily_headphones1.gif

Is this mod any dangerous to the driver itself? Could you potentially damage the drivers if you overheated the contacts?

If you don't know how to solder properly, yes.

done :o but something is wrong with my Internet. I'll post a pic as soon as can. It was pretty easy. I've done it only with paracord, no heatshrinks or anything, just tied a knot on both ends.

Hi,

 

With reference to the Jack shot - Please can you provide more details on how you connected /soldered the red cables to the left driver terminals and does this method provide feed for the right driver terminals.

More photos or diagram of the wiring?

remove the thin black padding to reveal the driver :D

the driver SHOULD just pull up and out pretty easily. Mine came out with very little effort. (Sh*t, I just realized I'm taking apart the wrong can! Failololol)

400

Ok, this is the correct can now, all opened up.

400

The plastic ring and foam pop off. There isn't anything holding them on that you have to undo, just pull.

400

Close up of my solders.

more....

jack shot....

400

and my case :) I got it at http://www.slappa.com/HardBody-PRO-Full-Size-Headphone-case?whence=

400

My headphones, cord, Fiio E6 amp fit in there with plenty of room to spare. (but not too much)

400

and all my work stuff...haha Badge, gum, USB charging cable for the E6.

 

400

All zipped up without smashing or forcing anything to stay in!

You don't have to use the middle tab on the driver to solder the right driver's signal. You can connect the ground for it and the left's ground to the ground on the 3.5mm chassis, then the right's signal straight to the 3.5mm chassis' right signal.

Hi,

 

I want to use mini XLR sockets 3 pin but I don't know which mini XLR socket's 3 pin  to connect to the left driver terminals ( positive, negative & shield )  on DT770 pro

Any idea?

I did this the other day using a 3-pin mini xlr.

I used the pin on the opposite side of the locking mechanism as the ground, and then the one to the left of it for the left signal and one to the right for the right signal.

Cool, Am going to try that and use silver cable detached wire.

 

Thanks

Here they are sleeved.

Hey I like that. Did you end up widening the hole to fit it through?

post #104 of 131
Thanks. Not at all. There was a little rubber thingy holding the original cable, so I just removed it. I'm not sure about DT770. That hole might be tighter. Will you check that please?

Hey man, just a couple of quick questions about your mods - does the new nut fit the Lumberg (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1502-02-Lumberg-Socket-3-5mm-Jack-4-Way-/141311184027?pt=AU_Pro_Audio&hash=item20e6cd8c9b&_uhb=1)  2.5mm jack you were using? For closed cans, would this be enough to close the gap or do you still need the foam?

 

Can you give the size of the nut so we can source?

 

Do you find the new female jack is secure after inserting/removing the cable constantly? I'm a little worried the jack socket may come loose from the headphone body after a while.

 

I wasnt sure which Beyers to get, so bought the DT990 250s, DT770 250s and the DT770 Premium 32s, I will be doing your mods on the ones I keep! They look so mint....

 

Any up to date suggestions/tips on stuff you would do differently after becoming a seasoned pro at this?? :)

 

EDIT - also, whats a good site for getting quality braided headphone cables from? I've done a google and found a couple but didnt really have what you guys have managed to find...

 

Thanks mate
