So back 10 years or so ago when I was in college, I had a pair of Sony headphones that I enjoyed a lot. They were what I would say are the Eggo model. Sadly I pulled the mini plug out and just threw them away. Now knowing that I could have reterminated them, it saddens me that I still do not have them anymore.

Anyway, to my point. Does anyone know the original model number or where I can find the information? Thanks.

There are several models of the Sony Eggos that came with the detacheable cable with the mini plug. The models I'm familiar with that came with the detacheable cable are D55, D66, and D77. The D66 is the only one of the three that I've mentioned that are still available (Audicubes carries them). The D55 and D77 have long been discontiued.

Released around 1993 (discontinued models)

I'm not sure if this is the exact right order, but I think>

1st Generation MDR-D11 and MDR-D77

2nd Generation MDR-D33 and MDR-D55

3rd (current) Genneration MDR-D22 and MDR-D66sl

Hopefully someone can confirm or correct this.

The D66 does not have detachable cables.

yes it does

the current D66 (available from our sponser Audiocubes) has a short cord, approx .5 meters for use with devices using remote controls or devices located in a breast pocket. these headphones also come with an extension (1.5 meter as stated)

EDIT: I am sorry about that, I misunderstood your post

If that was what the original poster meant, then yes, the D66 has a short cable with a removable extension.

Some of the older Eggos had removealble headphone cables that you could unplug from at the earpiece, like some of the higher end headphones have, like the CD3000 or the HD600. The D66 is not designed in that way.
