I have browsed this forum for a very long time eating up advice as much as possible for audio for my new PC build. I purchased my DT880 pro's with my new build in March of 2013 so it is with extreme sadness I am writing this.
Long story short.....I was gone and my wonderful wife decided to allow the kids to use my DT880's. When I returned home my wife said, dont be mad, but.... the kids got in a fight over whos turn it was, ripped the entire cable out of my dt880's and left me soundless.
After I cooled off I began to dig through guides on how to rewire it, I am great with soldiering iron and began the attempt. To my horror I opened my 880's to find one of the "tabs" of my sound driver completely ripped out and dancing around inside the headphone piece. Now by tab I mean the soldier point the wire connects to on the DT880 driver. I found a picture on this site of someones and he had them labeled 1,2, and 3. My #1 point is ripped off. (sorry its not allowing me to link photos yet just made the account. if you follow the link its the photo under (the wiring)
I read another forum from someone who said to be EXTREMELY CAREFUL when opening them because those tabs are barely held in place.
I need to know if theres any hope now to rewire without having to purchase another sound driver. And if so where do I go from here?
ps. I apologize if my hi-fi lingo isnt the best.
