    I tripped over an snapped the jack in my AD700s. Has anyone ever rewired a stereo jack before and how to do it?

    Very easy to re-wire a stereo jack.

    Assuming the wire in the cable itself isn't damaged from the entry of the headphone itself, all you need to do is cut the existing jack (if physically broken or injection molded as these are one off's), strip the wires and solder them to a new stereo jack either 3.5 or 6.3mm, pick your poison.

    Cheers

    I've had to repair and replace the cable on my ATH-AD700 twice now (young children and respite).

    That's what I did on the repair, then just heat shrink over it :thumbup:

    I've also grabbed a replacement cable with a 6.3mm end (can obviously use 3.5mm too) already fitted and re attached it to the headphones.

    got pics of the damage?

    but as above, shouldn't be hard to fix
