What temperature setting is used to solder the Cardas Sennheiser plugs?  Safe for a newbie..........

post #11209 of 14056

Has anyone that have replaced the plug on their Sennheiser HD600 noticed of the wire they use is copper, or silver plated copper?

Not that it makes any difference, but it is copper.

I have to be honest here, there is nothing safe for a newbie about soldering those Cardas Sennheiser plugs. You will want to practice soldering before you go at those plugs, they are small, can melt and aren't as easily accessible as most other soldering jobs you'll do. I would keep temps around 550-600F and use a good rosin core solder a 63/37 Eutectic blend is the way to go.

And add some flux and tin the connector before trying to connect the wires.

Just ordering some toxic cables copper cable for my next cable, as the SPC is not quite right for my monitors, takes a way a little of the natural sound. I usually like SPC but not with these.

 

Meanwhile i have mastered LOD's :)

Salvaged the denon Y-split and stuck it on and check out my dads twists at the top which go the opposite way, i think these are no pretty sexy considering they are also lawton modded inside ;)

Very Nice Swimsony,

 

The Y-Splitter could use a little more support.

Keep up the good work!

thanks for the kind words! What do you mean by the splitter support! It is pretty well positioned!

I just had this funny idea to make a belt out of locking XLR connectors... blink.gif

Where to purchase wooden Y splitter for full size Headphone cable?  Mogami etc.  Does anyone have a source?  Large wooden bead like picture?
