Very good job man.
Did you need to drill holes while you doing the mod?
Yeah you have to widen the hole that's currently there and create a hole in the other side. That wasn't fun at all.

Haha I just use a dremel and go nuts :blink:.  I think its kinda fun.  Then again I do it with cheep headphones not $1000 ones.

The plastic on the beyer cups is very thick and soft, you can make the hole by turning a twist drill in your hand.

DT880 cups anyway, not sure about the higher end models.

How's the fit? I want to put a Lemo connector in my T70's but I don't think there is enough room to make it fit comfortably. Does anyone have a model number for a XLR that fits the Beyers so I can compare dimensions to my Lemo?

Cable noob here needing help on recabling.
Searching for the right cable in this 800 pages thread is a daunting task. So i could hope for a straightforward answer (and maybe be updated in the front page too, for easier future reference)
I need recommendation on recabling my T50RP. I'm planning to do dual sided mini xlr configuration and terminated with a 3.5mm connector.

Here are my questions :
1. Where to get a threaded 3.5mm connector? I found one at Qables website, but they are from the UK and I just don't have the time to wait for them to ship. Plus they only sell the jack and not the jacket.
2. Which cables to use? The choices are strictly from Redco though as I don't have the luxury to pay for shipping fees from other online store.
3. I'm going to use Techflex Flexo PET as the sleeve. Are the measurements given the maximum diameter before elongating the sleeve? How much elongation is when the diameter is minimum, after elongating the sleeve?
4. What are the points on choosing the right shrink tubes?

Do note that I'm only buying from Redco due to time and money constraint. Except for the threaded 3.5mm jack

Thanks for your advice!

I did not knew that thread existed since everytime I read a cable recommendation thread, they always point it to this thread. Thanks for pointing that out.

It's not that pretty, it's not that special, but it cost me £1.62 to make and took 15 mins.

I made this from am AKG Q-701 cable that had some shorts in it in another part of the cable. RSA Mustang is tied down to Fiio E10 via bicycle tube cut crosswise. Somehow, I don't think the bicycle tube tie-down and AKG cable are the bottlenecks in the system, and the $ I saved can go to buying el-84s for my stereo amplifier for my speaker rig.

You are lucky that all connectors are either made in Japan or Europe.

 

1.62 GDP is normally the cost of a single connector for me.

Yeah, the connectors were 85p each (I forgot the exact amount, so it cost me £1.70 not £1.62 :P )
