I accidently cut my ATHM50 cable

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

It didnt cut in half but put a gash in it and they dont work now, can I fix this?

Sure.  You can either re-wire the existing cable or (potentially easier) replace it with one of your own.

Do you have a tutorial for me rewiring it?  Also where is the cheapest place to get a replacement cable?

Depends on the wire you want to use, I suppose.  Guitar Center has some Mogami 4-core that would be good (I've used it).  Mogami W2893 (from Redco) is better as it's more flexible.  It can be sleeved with Type 1 paracord really easily.  Either one you would probably want to remove the outer sheathing and braid the 4 cores.

 

For a tutorial, I've never opened ATH-M50s; but there are some other posts that should detail it.
