Oh wow, I've never seen it any other way. I retract my previous statement then! 

 

But really, how stupid are the companies that first started wiring them differently? That just restricts the convenience of swapping out a cable for their devices.

... Apple.

 

That is all.

Ha right.

Talking about 4 pole plugs and mics, where would be the appropriate forum for microphones?

Hope this helps :beerchug:

Not Oyaide, those are out of China and made to look like Oyaide, i have some here.

The rounded corners, the plating on the barrel and the overall finish of the product. I am also not aware of Oyaide making a TRRS plug, but that i could be wrong about as i have not had to time to keep up to date with them.

Interesting.  I didn't even notice but it looks like the barrel finish is supposed to be matte, and the edges more sharp. Pictures above to compare.  I did think that a TRRS connector was strange because I have never found one by them as well but didn't really give it a second thought.

Are these then not genuine?

I don't think so.  Especially at those prices.  I don't think you will find a connector from Oyaide for less than $20 either.

Hello guys !

 

What size should I use heat shrink in cable hd 600?

 

*I am using a Mogami cable w2893

I'm just guessing, but I would think 3/8" for the connector part. It has to go over the top of the connector so the solder points aren't exposed.

Thanks Casper :)

What kind of wire is that that goes up through the headband? I know it's for the right side speaker, so it has 2 separate (wires? strands? idk)

 

I have to replace this because I opened the Senns all the way up, and saw that a part of the wire was exposed (probably friction in the folding joint)

 

Also, would I be able to remove that PCB to save space?

 

Also, microphones, where to talk about these?
