Im in the market for some new cans I can use, but as a diyer, im bound to tweak the heck out of it.

I was looking at the senn 580s, but I also like the look of the beyers,

880 and 990

I was wondering if anyone could tell me how difficult it would be to open up one so I can get rid of the stock cable.

the 580 is attractive because its in my realm of affordability, but the beyers look nice too.

is it difficult to open up a beyer? is there a diy site anywhere with pics?
the first thing Im want to do is take out the stock cable :p im not brave enough to be the guinea pig and take apart cans this expensive without learning about it first.

I have a pair of akgs but the cable is soldered directly to the drivers, and the house looks like itll fall apart if I tried to open it up. so Im looking for some other cans I can have some fun with


need to move on to better pastures, my grado sr-80s are good, but I need something with higher fidelity to listen to music with.

Hey RnB, I can highly recommend the DT 880. They are lively, warm, detailed and textured with good dimension and resonance/decay of music notes. Bass notes are also very rounded and full sounding. They are very well constructed and comfortable. I love how the velour earpads caress the side of the face and the thick pad on the headband helps support the weight.

Also since Headroom and Headphile do recables of these cans, they seem to be readily modifiable...we all know how much you love to build cables. I would be very interested in the cable experimentation you would undoubtedly perform on them.

The beyer 770/880/990 are all very easy to open up and recable.

I'd like to recable my DT770s soon to bring out the mid range more.

What kind of cable would be good for that, starquad, cardas?

Exactly how do you open Beyer cans?

I have 580s and I've never looked back since I bought them. Even easier to re-cable seeing as the cables are removable. Very warm and detailed sound, and extreemly dark which will make my jazz listening experiences very pleasurable, yet they remain punchy and fast enough for rock.

I acutally found some 580s really cheap

$160 shipped. So I think I may just go with the senns.

thanks for the pics though!
