Phase one complete – time to spray it with a mid coat so I can have a certain amount of “undo” when I put in some more detail

Modifying the AKG K702 to take a balanced connection

Posted by JFunk on 26/06/2016 in Dismanteling and re building headphones |

We spend a lot of our time modifying headphones to take a balanced connection from and am or DAP – it think this is the first pair a AKG K702 we can done. We were lucky enough to have a 4pin socket just the right size to fit in the original hole. Here is a handy video of the operation which may help if you fancy doing a bit of DIY or if you would like us to perform a similar operation on your headphones just let us know

Re-Cabling the Grado GS1000 for balanced connection

Posted by JFunk on 11/05/2016 in Special projects |

We re-cable a lot of headphones and convert a lot to balanced so when someone asked if we could do a pair of GS1000 I confidently said yes – no problem. Having done quite a few pairs of entry level grados I thought it would be easy enough… I was wrong 😉
Like with all the other grados they are glued together with hot glue but the ear cup is a single piece so very tricky to get to the back of the driver. In the end I had to use a modified scalpel which I heated with a blow torch to safely remove the glue without heating the delicate driver or earcup. It took four or five hours of heating and picking before they finally popped out. Once the driver was out it was plain sailing and while I was in there I changed the grille to a more open mesh. The time taken was worth it though because they are a thing of beauty.

HD 25 headphone connection Mod

Posted by JFunk on 21/03/2016 in Uncategorized |

The Sennhesier HD 25 Headphones are legendary, having been around for over 25 years, they have been the headphone of choice for DJ’s and and recording professionals all round the world, and in all areas of the industry, this universal adoption has been down to there mix of fantastic audio quality/sound isolation, and there rugged reliability.

However this is not to say they we at custom cans do not see them back for repair from time to time, and as such we are always looking at mods and adjustment’s to improve the reliability of these fantastic headphones.

One of the most common issues we are being asked to fix is a loose or poor connection to the drivers, this tends to show as loosing audio in one ear, that can sometimes be fixed by wiggle of the cable, and is often caused by a bit of corrosion or dirt, between the connector and the spring in the socket that it connects to.

we have in the past produced a video on our you tube page showing how to cleanup and adjust these springs to try and improve these issues, but we have come up with a better solution.

As of today we have Replacement Gold Springs available to replace the stock ones that sennheiser supply as standard, the replacements will not corrode the same as the original ones, and as a side effect should also offer a better connection to the driver itself.

They will also fit the the HD600 and HD650 and all Sennheiser series of headphones that use the two pin spade connector.
