I want to re-direct the taps cables at back to front or similar idea for a mobile amp mod.

 

You can buy from

Of course! I disassembled one of the ear cups to get to the driver to figure out the proper L/R ground wires.

Ah Ok, I am really bad at this, my first attempt I thought it didn't matter because I thought that the ground is ground but after reading how the balance amp works, so I had to redo. smily_headphones1.gif

Never used multimeter, this was my first time smily_headphones1.gif still lot to learn.

Thanks !

there are a lot of online tutorials about how to use a multimeter. for cable work, just learning to use the ohm-meter is very advantageous. 

 

but yes, getting the proper L/R ground is important...it's certainly easier when working with headphones where you can easily access the drivers (like the d7000). for some of the grados it's a bit harder b/c the cups are attached with glue/adhesive, but a little heat and they come right off as well. the akg, from what i can remember, were pretty easy to disassemble as well (the k501 was pretty easy).

A digital out cable for an X3 :

Using Rean mono 3.5 and Rean rca jack, sleeved in some para cord

 

Made a 4pin XLR to 3pin XLR split cable for a Friend :


 

using Neutrik plugs and Mogami cable,  Sleeved in texflex (its a short cable) Not so happy with the quality of the red heatshrink...

Hi!

 

Is it safe to use a female mini to balance interconnects to produce a balance line out? 

IPOD > mini to mini > DUET > balance to female mini > Headphone

 

THANKS!

Better to ask in the cable comments and questions thread.

no worries, you will get more answers and discussion there since this is more for just showing built cables.

My first recable! Bought a pair of SR60i's to mod. I used 26 AWG silver wire from navships on ebay, 1/4 Neutrik plug, navy 550 paracord and I 3D printed the Y split cover to match my 3D printed cups.
