I've recently went through the process of removing the attached cables on my Sony MDR-V6/7506 headphones and replacing them with female audio jack. Once I got the hang of what to solder, the process was fairly straight forward. I needed to use a Dremel tool to widen the hole for the audio jack. I got some minor scratching around the area but I think it came out looking pretty good.
In addition to being able to use any audio aux cable to attach the headphones, I found that a Bluetooth transceiver works just as well. Once synced up to my phone, the transceiver effectively makes the headphones wireless. The transceiver even has a microphone so I can answer calls on my phone.
I was wondering if anyone else out there has worked on a similar type project. I'd be curious to know what headphones you detached the cable from and how much effort was involved. I'd be interested in hearing both successes and failures alike.
The next pair of headphones I plan on attempting this...
Lets make this happen, a baby Orpheus for the modern audiophile world. We have the Sennheiser HE 1, but no other electrostatic from the company for the audiophile that's looking for the Sennheiser sound at an (way more) accesible price. The system should be based on the HE 60 project, an electrostatic with price-consciousness in mind, as the then HE 90 (Orpheus) was too expensive just as the HE 1 is actually. And just like the 600 series it should have a good build quality but using the famous plastic that Sennheiser is known for, which we still have from the 580 Precision and it is still rock solid. And most importantly, great sound quality paired with an energizer that can deliver (more than) enough power to drive the electrostatic driver. I would suggest the name to be HE 0X (Zero X), as it's a baby HE 1 and an 'X' has always trailed on Massdrop x Sennheiser collaborations. I had previously seen that Will from Collaborations said they had already pitched Sennheiser for the HE X0,...
I'm looking for a pair of fun (not flat sounding) closed back headphones between these prices: 100-150€/108-165$ aprox.
On the one hand, I've got this two options in mind: Denom AH-D1200 and Beyerdinamic 770 pro. Could someone tell me his/her impresiones about them? Because I cannot test them, and I'm not sure which one is better and if there are better options in that interval.
On the other hand, 80ohms beyer option could be worth? I mean, I've got a Focusrite Scarlet Solo 2gn, is that enough to move it?
Thanks for the info and comments! 😄
Grab HP Printer Support to Connect Printer To Wi-Fi Network
Because of connectivity over wireless network makes these printers user-centric. In order to take the benefit of sharing printing, you need to grab HP Support if you don’t know the procedure. As many people are not familiar that how they can connect their HP printer to a wireless network so, they need to make connection with well-experienced techies.
I bought the Varmilo Dragon Phoenix VA104M Mechanical Keyboard and initially it worked great. I'm on a Mac, so I got some mac modifier keys at maxkeyboard.com. The only problem with them is that the LED backlights shine brighter through these than the other keys. I may try to attenuate the keys somehow. Any suggestions?
Unfortunately I've run into a bigger problem: I used the traditional method of remapping the modifier keys to the mac layout (through the Keyboard panel in the system preferences) and all was fine for about 2 weeks. Then all of a sudden certain keys seemed to remap themselves. I reset the Keyboard mapping in the system preferences and this is what I'm left with (using Windows ID's):
Left Control is mapped to Caps Lock
Right Control is fine
Caps Lock is mapped to both Control keys
Both ALT keys are mapped to nothing, unresponsive
Both "Window" keys are mapped to the ALT keys
I installed Karabiner - Elements and was able to remap the Caps Lock and Control keys to...
