Headphone Repair

Sorry, this service is no longer available; we left this page up for reference only.

Corpse Cable cut its baby teeth doing general headphone repair work, re-cables and re-terminations for a major online headphone company and we still gladly offer many of these services at our own facility.

Our team here at Corpse Cable can happily re-terminate the cable on your quality headphones to a different plug type or we can completely re-cable your audiophile headphones top to bottom as you wish. We are also pretty good at fixing the loose solder connections often found at the earcup housings or at the driver wiring junctions.

Please email us so we can troubleshoot the job needed for your particular headphones and determine what can be done. Keep in mind that as with most things in life, there are always a few caveats.

First off, not every broken headphone can actually be fixed – and some just don’t deserve to be. If you have a fairly inexpensive headphone under $100-$200, sometimes you’ll be better off buying a new one with a fresh manufacturer’s warranty given the not-significant repair expense. And if you unfortunately happen to have a blown driver in your headphones, you’re out of luck regardless of make or model. We also can’t do any new plastic-based repairs as those kind of parts are typically unsourceable for us.  And finally, we don’t repair any Beats By Dre or other Monster headphones.

Headphone Re-cables

Upgrade your headphones with Cardas GR∀EDIGGER or Mogami cable.  Available in balanced XLR (4-pin or dual 3-pin), 2.5mm TRRS, 3.5mm TRRS, 4.4mm TRRRS, dual 1/8", dual 1/4", 4-pin mini XLR, Single-Ended 1/4″ or 1/8″ terminations.


What Type of Headphone Cable Does Corpse Cable Use? Corpse Cable uses only reference Cardas and Mogami cabling proven to stand the test of time with excellent braid durability designed to deliver many years of dependable performance. We use only top-quality connectors. And we do it all with a painstaking build quality at an extremely fair price.

Some headphones can be recabled for balanced operation using the stock factory cable. We currently offer the Stock Sennheiser HD 650 Cable with balanced (4-Pin, 2.5mm TRRS, 4.4mm TRRRS or Dual 3-Pin) re-termination.

How Long Does it Take for Corpse Cable to Recable My Headphones?  While most headphone re-cable jobs are performed in under 5 business days, it could take up to 2 weeks to receive your upgraded recabled headphones back on your doorstep depending solely on the type of headphone, the actual headphone cabling re-work required at Corpse Cable and the availability of cabling and/or needed parts. We’ll provide you with an accurate lead time upon placing your order.

Once I have my headphones recabled to balanced drive, can I still listen to them in single-ended mode? Yes. For those headphones that have a custom recable hard-wired into place, you will need a balanced-to-single-ended adapter for this specific purpose. We manufacture Balanced to Single-Ended adapters, so any balanced headphones can be converted back to single-ended use upon demand.

What Models Are Available For Re-Cable?

AKG K701 / K550, Denon AH-2000 / AH-5000 / AH-7000, Beyerdynamic DT770 / DT880 / DT990, Fostex TH-600 / TH-900, Sony MDR-7506 and Audio-Technica M50 are available for ‘custom’ headphone re-cabling performed here at our Corpse Cable facility. The stock factory headphone cable is completely removed and an upgraded Cardas or Mogami cable is permanently attached to your headphones.

Warranty. The upgraded Cardas GraveDigger cable features a Lifetime Warranty on the cable as well as our installation work.  Any Corpse Cable warranty issues or questions should be directed to our Repair Technicians.
