Boom Mic for AD700

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a pair of AT-AD700 and Im thinking of modding a boom mic onto it. I know about the Labtecs and its something I should've bought when I first got the headphones since they were cheaper compared to now.

I found this and judging by the picture do you guys think this would be a viable option? Im basically going for the velcro/tape route.

I don't think anyone has used that before but it looks like it could be modded onto your AD700. It couldn't find the type of connector it used, but I assume its a 1/8 connector so I think you're good to go.

Wouldn't the modmic be a better alternative now?

Whats wrong with like a desktop condenser mic? They sound like 100x better and dont shove something in front of your face, not to mention hack up your headphones.
