Audio Mods

Just another side hobby.

While I do like good audio I tend to stay in the Chi-fi and budget audio line of things.

Monoprice Retro Detachable

The Retros are budget bass cannons. For ~$25 these are a fun cheap pair of cans to use whenever I feel particularly bass heavy. The main issue with them is that the cable is 3m! Much too long for my needs. Modding a 3.5mm female jack allows me to easily swap the cable and makes it easier to store.

Sony MH755 mmcx mod

The MH755 are the current pinnacle of budget IEMs. I purchased these for only $8 coming late to the hype train of these. I also purchased the MMCX female connector for ~$2 and the cable for ~$4. The stock cable is a horrendous low quality asymmetrical cable. You can read more about them here.
