repairing ultra thin internal driver cables on hd 25?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So, is it possible, has anybody had to do it before or something similiar or should I cut my losses?? there the amperior model so the drivers are hard to come by and I'd probably have to buy a pair which is about the same price as a new pair of headphones, stress. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have an image but for some reason it wont let me insert it!

You need a certain number of posts before you can upload photos to head-fi. You can upload them elsewhere (imageshack, FLickr, etc) and link or embed them here though. 

 

If the wire you are describing is a single strand which is slightly thicker than human hair, then yes, that is actually your voice coil wire, and your headphones are most likely wrecked. 

 

If it is the thicker cable that goes down to the plug, that is not too hard to replace. You can find all sorts of instructions around here.

Yeah it's definitely the voice coil cables. I've heard of people soldering them but it's meant to be a very tricky job! Looks like I'll have to replace the driver at this rate, bollox.

 

thanks for the reply.

It's hard to repair, especially if they broke and are too short to reach. When working on my T70 Beyers I snapped the two voice coil leads, I was ecstatic when I managed to get them to reach the solder pads.

 

Your best bet is to buy some really fine magnet wire or extract a single strand of stranded wire to extend the broken wire and solder it onto the appropriate spot then coat it with enamel.

Its aluminium wire. I heard that means I have to use aluminium solder with it too?

 

I have managed to find some guy selling a pair with a damaged driver for cheap enough anyway but 

it would be worth trying to fix up damaged ones. I can only learn from it.
