Audio Technica ATH-AD700 cable getting very stiff at the top

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of Audio Technica ATH-AD700's that I have had for about 3 years. My wife has been using them and when I used her computer last I noticed that the wire that goes into the headphones is getting really stiff. Up towards the top it is almost rigid. I don't want to even try to bend it because I fear it would break the wire. It seems like it gets softer after getting about 6 inches down the wire. They wire doesn't feel completely normal until about a foot down though. Any ideas on what is causing this or how to fix it? I may have to re wire them but I have never done that before.

I would hold off on recabling them until the cable stops working. I've never heard of a cable getting more stiff, only softer and looser. Strange. Is it possible that it has been that way the whole time and you just didn't notice?
