I totally agree. It was a thought experiment. It would, however, be amusing.

So how's this project going? Any progress?

I just need a cord that'll fit (and preferably lock) in the jack, but other than that it went well. Though a chip of my exacto that I was using to remove the glue got stuck on the diaphragm side of the driver. I got it off with plastic tweezers.

I hate it when that happens. The magnet in the driver always attracts something, like screws and stuff. I almost punctured the diaphragm with a screwdriver once.

Does it still need to be a Y cable?

If the operation is successful, then it should look like an unmodified Beats Pro!

I labeled the drivers with sharpie before I swapped them. RB is beats(right) and LS is Shure(left). They are in the picture I posted

The Beats drivers have six points of contact whereas the Shure drivers have two. Daisy chaining wouldn't work even if I could get the screws out, sadly

Did you pay attention to the wiring of the Beats drivers? They actually have two points per each of the three contacts; two for the driver's positive terminal, two for the negative and two points just act as a bridge from the headphone jack to the other channel's positive terminal.

This is only if you've repaired the came going through the headband already.

How did the repair work out
