I have been lurking on these forums for a while and have always been keen to read about mods and new headphone tech. While pondering to buy Hifiman or Audeze as my next 'big' investment when the wallet allows it, there is a project I am keen on doing first.
My DT770 has been laying arround in a cupboard with just one side functioning. When i opened the can with the cable entry I must have pulled the last bit of cheap factory wire to bits.
So I have been reading all of the threads here on re cabling a 770 (seems like a common thing). I have soldered a piezo disk once, and shortened the cable of a DT 133. Thats all the experience I got :P
What I am gonna do is go to a hifi store and buy:
- A stereo jack plug (http://www.bax-shop.nl/jack/neutrik-np3x-b-jack-63mm-stereo/product-details.html)
- TRS cable
- Jack Chasis (http://www.bax-shop.nl/jack/neutrik-nys229-jack-chassisdeel-6.35mm-mono/product-details.html)
I have a soldering iron, a little helping arm/claw thingy and solder, obviously.
The iron is a all purpose tip, should I buy a smaller tip that does not get as hot for electronic parts?
For the cable I was reading about using copper - This is not TRS?
Elsewhere I read about XLR cables... Can I use stereo instrument cables too? Trying to find out more on the subject but I keep ending up on picture galleries and fetish talk :D
Maybe someone knows a good fit for the DT 770 in terms of the jack chasis?
Well I hope my rambling makes enough sense for someone to help me make more sense of all this.
Edit: Located in The Netherlands btw!
