let's start from me...

Re-cable Yuin PK2

This was a project i always wanted to do, but i couldn't find any supporting information in the internet (i.. couldn't find any guide). I thought of starting this thread such that people could take this guide as a reference when re-cabling their precious headphone/earphone Smiley

why re-cable? dilemma, nothing much to say about it. LOL

Step:

1. Prepare the desired cable. The cable used here is MOGAMI 2893 MiniQuad w/ outer jacket stripped to reduce weight; terminated with Neutrik Tiny Plug.




2. Find ways to open/dismantle the driver housing. I were using pen knife to slice open the housing.


Ok, i know, it's very urgly. like dog bite. LOL


3. Replace stock cable with the cable prepared earlier on. Apply good soldering skill! do not overheat the driver, the ultra thin magnet wire could just break off!






4. Glue the housing back to the body. Note that do not apply too much glue, extra glue might spill in the driver and damage the driver!


5. Done
