Shortening the sony mdr-v6 cable?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi was wondering if i spliced the super long coiled cable that's attached to the mdr-v6, shortened it, and re-soldered it back together (probably covering with head shrink tubing), if audio quality would suffer or anything.  I also think I read that there's some enamel stuff on the individual wires that can be removed with a lighter?  Thanks!

I did something similar with my V6s and I didn't hear much of a difference in audio quality.  

Yes there is a coating on the wires that has to be burned off. It just takes a second with a lighter to do that. 

Good luck!

ok thanks! Oh and is there any un-insulated copper ground wire I should be wary of when cutting and re soldering?

If your headphone works fine, don't risk ruining it.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think the copper had the coating on it as well. I only did this to my headphones because they were going dead, I recommend you stick with the stock setting unless you are handy with a soldering iron.
