I have a stock beyerdynamic dt770 80 pro and would like to recable it just for the heck of it and also, try and give it some ohmmpp!! im not really looking for a huge leap on performance just a new look... i want a revamp and give it a bit of a kick!! remember im on a budget about $60-150, Im not an audiophile, Im just tired of how the way it looks, some guy said he can do it for about $60-100 using starquad with nylon flex, i love how it looks...it could tide me over before i decide to get serious about my audio equipment, for now med school comes first, 2 more years to go....oh if it matters i live in the US... also how hard it is to recable? I'm a computer enthusiast and i do alot of tinkering but not soldering no experience at all... unless somebody can do same thing for a cheap then count me in...

here is the guys work..

I personally do not believe in cables improving sound, but do love the look of custom cables. What i have thought of doing is simply cutting off the end adding some techflex or whatever material you like, then reterminating it. Cool look for cheap.

I'm not looking to start up a debate but I was just curious if this is strictly a "belief" (ed.) or have you done comparisons for yourself. If you haven't done any comparisons then you are missing out on some SQ goodness!

About $5 for super cheap and still quite a bit nicer than stock. $10 for quite nice recable.

And of course, the price can go pretty high for fancy/boutique cables.

what I don't get is why when people recable headphones they go for the standard Y instead of keeping the less hassle single cable.

You figure there has to be a way to replace that cable that goes up and over to the right with a better cable.
