Allright, so after a lot of thinking I've decided to try to make my AKG K518's into a one sided cable headphone.
I want to do a recable and by having it on one side I don't have to solder that critical Y-joint.
So I have no experience what so ever when it comes to making headphone cables and have no soldering-experience.
I have only made speaker-cables and some powercables in the walls before.
So here is my question: I have got kind of an idea what cables goes where on the headphones themselves, but have no clue about the jack. So where do i put the cables on the jack. Would love to see a picture.
I also wonder if my list of things i need is complete as well?
This is what I've come up with so far:
Mogami W2893 cable approx. 120cm
Switchcraft 35HDBAU with .290" cable max.
3/16" Nylon multifilament for sleeving.
2mm heatshrink polyolefin (hear this is the best most flexible kind?)
6mm heatshrink polyolefin
I already have soldering iron, heat gun and dremel (for making holes)
For the cable going for the one side to the other I'm thinking of just splitting the original cable and use that. (Not good enough perhaps?)
I made this image to kind of show what I'm thinking when it comes to the wiring. Would be super happy if anyone could help me out here!!
