NEED TO REPLACE 3.5 MINI PLUG ON BEYERDYNAMIC HEADPHONES
« on: May 13, 2013, 04:22:40 PM »
Can anyone on the page replace a badly bent 3.5mm mini plug on my Beyerdynamic Headphones?   My daughter knocked the laptop of of the kitchen table and my wife caught it by the headphone cable....  I wasn't sure if this was something easily accomplished by one of our cable gurus on the the board.


Thank you.

Very easy to do. If you have a soldering iron it's about as easy as you can get. You'd need a new mini plug.

Something like this should work:

You probably could do it yourself.

I have repaired a cew sets of headphones and actually some of them are very tricky how they are wired, not the connector itself but the way the wire is constructed, i could give it a go if u want

Darktrain did this for me once. It worked perfectly, he did it quickly, it looked better than the original, and it was inexpensive.

Cables: 2x nbob KCY, 1 pair nbob actives, GAKables 10' & 20' 6-channel snakes, Darktrain 2 & 4 channel KCY and mini xlr extensions:

I reapaied a set of Beyers for someone on here and the cable was really strange and hard to solder, like Robb said.  I ended up replacing the whole cable and not just soldering on a new connector.

So we could more or less upgrade to a nice silver cable and a phat nuetrik right angle 3.5mm fairly easy?
