AT A900's just broke, seeking cheap (-$100USD) replacements

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So my Audio Technica ATH-A900's just broke, the sound on the right speaker had been going for a while, wiggling it fixed the sound for a bit , but not anymore, I just opened it up and the wire was damaged, like it had been pulled too much and the outer bit had split, I guess I could fix it, but I don't know how, and I'm in the market for new headphones anyways.


I'm after a cheapish (-$100 or less) replacement, It has to have bass, be good for gaming, movies, and especially music.

It will be powered by my Essence STX, and only be used at home (nothing portable).

Any recommendations? Audio Technica was a great buy last time, so I'm down for them again this time.


Also, due to my location, I can only buy from eBay.

Thanks!

Soldering it back up is generally a 30 second fix once you know where the wire is disconnected. You just need a soldering iron and some solder, really.

Before you start, I have no idea why they were so dirty, was like that when I opened.

Also, can I just put some solder onto the patch? or is it more indepth that that? I don't want to burn through the cable and break something else.

Cheers.
