So I like music.
I like music with depth and tonal separation.
I like music to be clear, to be defined, to be something I can listen to at low levels and still get the subtle nuances that it conveys.
I also like to listen to music whenever I’m not home, like on public transport.
This of course means I need a dedicated set of headphones for this exact purpose.
So last year I decided to shell out for a set of Kicker HP541 DJ-style Foldable Headphones.
I liked the feel of them, the sound quality, the fact that they had a detachable cable.
Up until this year they’ve served me pretty faithfully.
However there’s one flaw to the design which caught me off-guard, the internal wiring.
Let’s just say I now have the fun task of replacing the internal wiring, and then soldering it.
The first part will be easy, it’s the second that will prove my downfall since I haven’t soldered anything in ten years.
The lesson to me is to check the easily accessible solder points for breaks before I start disassembling the entire thing.
Now to decide if I should use the parts to install the drivers in to something else, like say my Cyberman voice changer helmet.
I always planned to redo it’s wiring to install speakers for a chest plate to amplify the pissy little voice modulator.
