yep it's four wires:
He even used the cut off part and put the female on it for use as an adapter to 1/4" plug.
Becareful !, use the multimeter and make sure which wire goes where.
I just blew up my beyerdynamic T70 while experimenting with the voice coil. :(
That gives me an excuse to get either PS1000e or T5p soon :)
Lol, sounds like you are happy you blew up your T70...
I've heard some people say the SR-009 is 10-20% better but it's really hard to say how much better unless you have heard it yourself. I haven't personally, so I can't really help.
I think I have changed my mind about the Rabid Dawg mod (shelf liner version). It sort of occurred to me that my system had a reached a stage where it was no longer bright, brittle or edgy, and that it might be worth returning my HD800 to stock.
Now I tend to see the mod as more of a bandaid that a long term solution - in as much as it fixes the resonance at 6k or whatever, it holds the headphones back in other areas. I think part of the problem was he size of the felt ring - this caused an unnatural bloom in the mid-bass, and a general warming of the tonal balance - in fact I wouldn't be surprised if much of the difference is down to frequency response.
In any case - once your system is well behaved enough - any need for the mod is greatly reduced, in my case reduced to zero. But if your system is on the keen side, and maybe lacking in refinement or control in the treble, then the mod can be a lifesaver.
Funny thing is I was using exactly the same equipment when I found issue with the HD800 treble (my ears used to physically ache), pretty much only changing tweaks like equipment rack, cables, computer hardware/software - so either my brain has burned in over the past couple of years, or my system has actually changed substantially without swapping a single major component. Shame there is no real way to verify this without any common landmark, but anyway.
EDIT: overuse of punctuation.
