Thanks man! Cheers :beerchug: 

 

"either of those 2 pins" you mean those two pins at the sides, am I correct?

Yes , those 2 pins on either side of the center pin.......you can also check for urself using a multimeter's continuity test and it beeps if shorted.

Did you take a picture of the 3.5mm end prior de-soldering or cutting those 4 wires?......if not can you trace these wires againt the 3.5mm jack's end where you cut?as to blue with blue etc for ex:

Any good wire / connector suppliers in Europe?

 

I can do the braiding and soldering myself, but somehow I cannot find any cable supplier in Germany :-( .

HI guys, 

So this is my second post, as others told me to post in here.  I am looking to recable my Beyerdynamic T50P headphones, as my OEM cable snapped.  I am going to buy the Mogami W2534 cable (probably a length of 6 feet or so).  I am unsure how to connect the split wire (after the y) to the ear cups. I took a picture of the opened up headphones, but I am wondering if I should just solder each of the 4 cables in the quad directly to the 2 points that are in each ear cup?  I'm not sure how I should explain this, but I guess I am just looking for some direction on how to transform the quad cable into the "normal" headphone cable.  

 

I can't post pictures, so here is a link to the picture of the headphone ear cup opened up.  I am curious about the black part of the cable that is going through the ear cup, and then if I should just directly solder the Mogami cable to the attach points on the speaker.

Im making an adaptor for my er4 with 75ohm resistors in but ive not been able to find a female 3.5mm jack, only ones to attach to a pcb.

Ive used switchcraft jacks everywhere else so was hoping to find something from them but they dont seem to do what im looking for.

Can anyone help?

Many thanks!

The Reans are good quality, they are a spinoff from Neutrik and I have used them for years. Very durable connectors. They make the males with a couple different sizes of cable openings but I am not so sure they provide that for the females. If the opening does not match up well with the cable size, there are rubber grommets out there that will do the trick.

Ive ordered a couple of the switchcraft and rean ones
