Today I decided to do the detachable cable mod to my m50s but I have a problem. After wiring it up my right channel became very soft and lacked any vocal or bass. I decided to disconnect the black wires and listen to the right on its own and it sounds normal. I think there may be a problem with the headphone jack I purchased, do you think my assumption is right?
Every time I've had that problem, it was backed up by lower-than-expected voltage going through the connection, as verified by a multi-meter. Aka, bad joint, which requires re-soldering. I'd replace the jack anyway, though, if only to give you better loops to work with on the second attempt.
