Just did a dual-entry, dual detachable 3.5mm mic mod on a pair of DT990's for Folex. I used Mogami w2893 (8wires) and sheathed it in black paracord. Turned out perfect :)

Is that all 550 paracord that you used?

I don't have the package it came in anymore, but I believe so.

I'm struggling to understand this mod. What is the purpose of dual 3.5mm TRS jacks in the cans and dual 3.5mm TRS plugs on split cable ends?

It's a gaming HEADSET now, for PC. 3.5mm for audio, 3.5mm for Mic input. There are 2 3.5mm jacks so he can choose which side he wants his mic on.

That makes sense.

Does anyone have some experiences with Viablue's silver solder? How is this compared to the WBT silver solder?

A panavise and helping hands makes any soldering job easy.

 

He's not kidding, have 3 extra hands and a vise is wonderful. 

 

 

If you do any soldering work on a regular basis, GRS third hands are worth the price. I have the full size double with base, and a full size single on a base.

Great thread and I'm in awe of the work some of you guys produce. Before I probably order something on line, I wondered if anybody made custom lods for Sony walkmans?

Cheers

Picture of my AKG K240 Studio headphones and the 3.5mm plug on my DIY recable. I would show you the whole cable, but it isn't complete yet :) Not cool enough (yet?) to post a picture, hopefully the link will work here though. I fat fingered the mini-xlr plug & broke a pin. Had to order a new one, or 2. Should be here Friday so I can finish up.

 

Products Used:

 - Canare L-4E6S starquad cable

 - Switchcraft TA3FX 3-pin female mini-XLR connector

 - Switchcraft 35HDRANN right-angle nickle-plated 3.5mm stereo plug

 - 550 Paracord Desert Camo (the Made in the USA stuff you can get at Michael's, Joann Fabric and Meijer in the USA)

I don't really have any tips for you, I didn't have a problem with them. I have a set of helping hands so that makes soldering a bit easier. I wasn't aware of these connectors coming with different sized barrel openings, so I can't tell you if they're the big or small ones. 

 

I use this exact set. It's super cheap and it makes things much easier.
