FAQ about Headphone Upgraded Cable Connectors and Plugs
1. Are connector pins and plugs universal?
When purchasing headphone upgraded cables, we often encounter a problem, which is whether the plug and terminal connector are universal. In short, the answer is not necessarily. Generally, the plug and terminal of headphone upgraded cables will vary depending on the headphone brand, model, and player brand. Therefore, before purchasing a headphone upgraded cable, we need to confirm whether the plug and terminal are compatible with the headphones. If unsure, it is best to contact OC Studio first to avoid buying the wrong one.
2. Will the quality of the pin and plug affect the sound?
Yes, the quality and materials will not only affect the sound but also the price. The next article will share with you in detail how the material and produce process of pin and plug affect the sound.
3. Are connector pins and plugs connectors consumables?
Strictly speaking, they are consumables, but their lifespan is usually long, and if they are only oxidized or dirty, they can be cleaned by themselves.
4. Can plugs and terminal connectors be modified or upgraded?
Yes,OC Studio provides modification and upgrade services for both the brand's HiFi upgraded headphone cables and other brands' cables. In most cases, they can be modified without any problems, but some special situations may not allow modification, such as wires that are too thick or other reasons. Please feel free to consult us for any specific situation.
5. Can all cables be modified or use balanced connectors?
The answer is no. This question is often asked when modifying or upgrading the plug and terminal connectors. Generally, a good upgraded cable will not have this problem, as a good upgraded cable usually uses a number of signal wires that are multiples of four, making it compatible with four-pole balanced plugs. This problem exists in some cables that use only three signal wires in the main line to save costs or due to process problems, which corresponds to the aforementioned non-balanced three-pole, making it impossible to modify it into a balanced connector.
6.Can the non-replaceable wired earphones have their connectors replaced?
Yes, it's possible. Many users of non-replaceable wired earphones will send their earphones to us to change the connectors, in order to improve the sound quality. Based on previous modification cases, some earphones can achieve significant improvements in sound quality through connector modification.
