Dismantling the Beyerdynamic DT1350

Posted by JFunk on 13/07/2012 in Dismanteling and re building headphones, Special projects |

We have recently started stocking the beyerdynamic range of headphones. Most of their models are pretty straight forward to pull apart but our favourite model, the DT1350, had me scratching my head for quite a few days while trying to dismantle it without damaging any of the parts. I have now figured it out so soon I should have made my first custom pairs and it opend up quite a few mod options like damping, mass loading and re-cabling.

Here is a quick guide to how I dismantled them

Stage one – I removed the pads, they are held on with double sided tape so you just need to pull them firmly and carefully and they will come off

 

Stage 2 – Removing the drivers.

This is the bit that took a bit of bravery and head scratching to figure out 😉 Turns out they are just clipped into the housing a bit like the DT770 – there is a tiny gap which you can get a pry tool or screw driver in to leaver it up – it will eventually POP and then it comes out easily

 

Stage 3 – Unsoldering the cables.

If I have to explain this you probably should not be trying this LOL but inside you can see they went for a three core cable – there is a board they attach to with 4 tracks and 2 of them have a solder bridge to link the ground wires. When I re-wire them I will remove the solder bridge and make a 4 core braided cable and remove the solder bridge to give them separate ground wires down to the jack.

 

 

 

Stage 4 – Unclip the earcups from the yoke

This is pretty straight forward, The yoke has a bit of spring in it and with the drivers out the earcup flexes a bit and you just need to pull out the lugs to unclip it

 

 

Stage 5 – Removing the cable

These is a metal staple type thing inside the earcup – pull it out by inserting a screwdriver and levering it up and the cable will be released

 

Stage 6 – the fiddly bits 😉

Inside the earcup the wires connecting the left and right is held in place with a crimped brassy ring of metal – you need to open that out using a thin blade to release the cable and the rubber strain relief buts can be pulled out of the holes from the inside of the cup using some pliers.

 

 

Stage 7 – Removing the yoke from the headband.

These are held in by the plastic stoppers on the ends – I levered up the two plastic clips with a scalpel blade and then wiggled them off – than pull the yoke through

 

Finally I removed the rubber covers from the headband which have the cable running through. – The only bit I have not yet figured out is how to get the hinges apart – IF ANYONE HAS FIGURED THIS OUT LET ME KNOW

Latest Batch of Headphones

Posted by JFunk on 25/06/2012 in Uncategorized |

Here are some of the newer headphone’s we’ve been working on the last few weeks.

 

Adidas Originals HD-25 resprayed in white

 

Sony MDR-V700DJ for DJ Antrax

 

Our first pair of Numark Red Waves for DJ Saleen

 

Here is a pair of Pioneer HDJ-2000s with a gold headband ROTM design on the earcups.

 

We really like the Beyerdynamic DT1350, here we have added our ROTM design to the earcups

 

Sennheiser HD-25 with blue and turquoise colour-flip paint. 

 

 

A pair of HD-25s with a retro-gaming theme.  Remember when there was no game saves, you had to play a game for 6 hours in 1 sitting if you wanted to complete it.

 

 

A pair of Sony MDR-700s with Menacekeys’ 3D logo and glow in the dark cups.

 

House and religion, together at last.

 

 

Jay Shelton must have been feeling patriotic when he ordered this pair of Union Jack Sennheisers

 

Nice and simple white with red accents, really looks good.

 

These are very different from our normal style, they took aaaages but came out really well.

HULK inspired Custom Sennheiser HD25-1 mk ii – Feel the rage

Posted by JFunk on 09/06/2012 in Pro DJ Headphones |

These ones were really fun to do as it is always fun to do a little freehand work. The outline for the design was printed on to a set of white earcups then the shading and flames were filled in by hand – they look pretty awesome in my humble opinion and I hope to try this technique again in the future on some other designs.

Roy Lichtenstein inspired Sony MDR-V700DJ

Posted by JFunk on 01/06/2012 in Pro DJ Headphones, Special projects |

These were done as a special project for DJ Tim Lyall – He purchased one of our first pairs of custom headphones so we made sure we cam up with something very special for him

 

These were inspired by the paintings of Roy Lichtenstein – I had wanted to do a pop atr one for ages so this was an ideal opportunity.  To make them I mad a 4 layer mask and then used a pen to doo the line work – they came out really nicely – I love the block colours
