DIY Custom One Pro's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a really thick 3.5mm audio in cable really great quality thats never going to break. The problem is the ends are two big to fit into the audio in hole. Don't want to use an adapter and compromise sound quality. What I was thinking of doing is modify the size of the hole by cutting off a part of the plastic. Would cutting the headphones up affect sound quality in anyway. I'm assuming it wouldn't be a problem as long as I don't cut into the drivers inside. The whole is right on the outside of the phones. Thanks!

Depends if you cut into cup and open a hole. 

 

Though, bud, I don't understand why you want to mutilate your headphones to stuff a plug in them. Thicker cables don't exactly mean better sound, and you could solder on a smaller connector that'll fit in the hole that's there.

Right, might as well mutilate with the wire over the headphones. I might still try it though. If I don't make a hole it, it would be good. Seeing its just on the outer edge I would just chisel away at it and not try to puncture it. Only problem is not sure how deep I can go before I puncture something. I do have a thinner audio in cable that would fit but really like this one and don't want to hack it up. The wire is from 1994 and I really feel this gives superior sound over your 5 dollar audio in cables at Walmart. I can tell the difference between hifi and lowfi cables. Some people call that baloney but I hear a cleaner sounding signal.
