Sennheiser HD 25 II C and Shure Music Phone Accessory Cable Mod - Anyone done one?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi (Noob Alert!!)

 

I've had my HD25s for about four years, not a single issue with them, but I've got the curly cable and they're a little on the heavy side and dont have a mic for my iphone or Macbook.

 

I can't really justify spending 40 quid on one cable and then another 72 quid on the Sennheiser Amperior cable... call me tight, but I could get a whole new set of earphones for that sorta cash!

 

Anyway I was wonder about hacking the curly cable I have already got and adding a micro XLR to it. Allowing me to play out with curly cable if I want to (I DJ a little) as well as maybe marrying it up to this one for day to day office work!

Has anyone done this at all, if so how well did it go and would you recommend it?

 

I was deciding against just using a 3.5mm jack due the lack of durability on it. Apparently mini XLRs are the nuts!

 

I did do a search on the forum and via Google, so apologies if I've created a duplicate thread!

Maybe I should just add that all I am after is the best donor cable with remote, volume eand mic allowing me to use my HD 25's with my iphone - if you guys know of a better cable to butcher, let me know.

you need the cardas-sennheiser-diy-connectors to start with... solder whatever you want on them...
