Sportapro Driver Removable Cable Mod

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Is there a way of modding the Sportapro drivers with a removable cable, complete with female connectors in the housing? I want to open the possibility of a simple cable change if I ever accidentally damage the cable. I'm also curious as to whether something like this can even be done.

 

I was also thinking that using something like this plus a 25ohm resistor will kill two birds with one stone and allow me to perform the 75 ohm mod as well. Are there any other connectors that might work? For example, the ones that Shure IEMs use? If it's the connector that I linked, I apologize. I'm pretty new to the DiY scene.

I doubt that there is room, but dont let that stop you from trying. 

 

I will be significantly less work to just solder a new cable to the drivers if you damage the one you have now. You cant do it on the fly, but what are the odds of you having a spare cable with you?

 

For the 25ohm resistors (or whatever resistors you want to add) just build them into a short (6-12") 1/8"male --> 1/8" female cable.

Alright, thanks for the information. It's just that I was wondering because I will soon purchase Sporta Pros and the Parts Express headphones and am looking for KSC75 clips and Yuin G1A/G2A covers. I want to try my hand at modding them because I've got nothing better to do while waiting for the Alpha Pads and Portaphile 627 Micro.
