[DIY] Takstar Pro 80 - Removable cable mod. - Page 2

post #16 of 21

Hi thanks again for the very interesting thread

And i sorry but i missed a point ... have you done any internal rewiring in the headphones ?

As i have a very heavy hand with the soldering iron i am sincerely worried about damaging the drivers with

the heat produced by the iron tip and transmitted to the membrane of the drivers through the wirings.

A very delicate operation i guess.

Thanks a lot,  gino

I soldered the existing wires straight to the female jack.

Hi thanks a lot.

I am always worried to damage the drivers with the heat.

 

It's me again.  I have cut the stock cable and i am sincerely shocked by the poor quality of wires.

It is a miracle that they work.   I have to buy some cat5 wire to make the short cable close to the headphone with a xlr at the hand.

What a **** of cable. And what a mess of work.  The idea is to build a cable like this to connect the driver and the flying xlr.

 

 

then i have already received the mic cable for the extension 

 

i hope not to burn the drivers.  It will be very tricky.

What a **** of cable really. 

Thanks again,  gino

I'm driving to a radio and television technician tomorrow. Asking him to do a detachable cable mod for my Takstar 2050's. I can't take the risk to do It myself. I waited over one month for them to arrive.

 

Hopefully it won't be too expensive. ;)

I want to use my Takstar headphones with my v-moda boom pro so this is the only way.

So I finally found a chassi that is black instead of silver.

 

The problem is I don't know If I can use it because It's 3 pins. Do I need a 4 pins chassi or will this work too?

Yes it will work. There are only three wires going into the cable; the ground is shared between the 2 channels.
