    So I got my hands on some Beats By Dr. Dre (made by Monster) and I tore them apart and I thought I'd post some pictures.
    BTW they still work. :) and sound amazing
    Now time for some modding

    What all mods can you do to CircNurals like that? Increase power, add an amplifier?

    Those things have some killer bass, I tried out the lice-infested pair at Best Buy a few weeks back.

    There are some kind of adjustment screws on the circuit board tho I can't hear a difference when I screw with them.

    ouch.

    I love the sound of the beatz, but the plastic casing is kinda cheap, aready one of the screw on the left side has broken through its hole.

    The mod i would love to do, or at the very least seen done, it getting a cool looking vintage pair of head phones and putting the beatz guts into it. that would be BA :rockout::rockout:

    Does anyone know what type of screwdriver is required to take apart the outer plastic shell of the headphones (like the headband part and the part where the headphones fold together)

    Thanks!

    I don't get it, do you have two pairs? Looks like a complete one is sitting on the parts for another one.

    Yes I know that, but I recently got the studios and there's a little problem. It's where the hinge is for the left earphone, it's misaligned and so when I put on the headphones, the hinge kinda bends backwards, so I'm trying to take it apart to see what's wrong.

    If you guys could please help me out that'd be great! Thanks.

    Yes because if you look at the post above you, someone wasn't thinking and instead of making his/her own thread about their problem, they posted it here. lol

    Studios wire ripped

    I know that this thread was from a year ago but i was wondering, conti027 can you post closer, clearer pictures of the back of the big circuit board because the wires of my studios ripped off there and im not sure which way to solder the wires to the certain positions... thanks:toast:

    Dude you are my Hero!! I been trying to get a site that actually did this with these things i started having a problem with them about 2weeks ago when they kept skipping on the right side that has the mute button. You can imagine Jammin to Start It Up by Lloyd Banks n one side goes silent!!!! I almost took them off n threw them away. Now the same side sound like the speaker is blown it has that drrrrrrr sound when playing. Am goin crazy, I have managed to open em up n i can see the board n those screw like things you talking about for amplification but now the cable that is soldered on to the metal thing that comes out if yu wearing em n hav to adjust them if you hav a big head or dread locks[dono what to call it] is off do you think thats the problem cozing them to have that sound.. Am goin crazy man holla back. Nothing as stressing as one side good one side terrible

    hum fake

    Yo check the inside of real monster beats studio
    from the website of monster :

    http://www.monstercable.com/productdisplay.asp?pin=3808

    click on images and you'll see

    as you can see the grey circle part has way more
    than 8 holes. On your pictures we can see
    only 8 holes.
    Also the parts are different
    Mine are the same as your pictures but
    i bought it for 83 dollars on a china website
    so they might pretty probably be fake
    Where did you buy yours ?
    They are fake dude

    you just unplug the black stuff : what you put on your ears just by taking it off (you can force it dont worry), then you'll see the screws... unscrew them but be very carefull as there is a big magnet (which produces the bass) if one screw gets on it then you are screwed !!! By trying to take this screw out i broke my left earphone , now there is no more bass at all ! :((((

    Hi guys! my Beats are fake and I wanna use it's casing to house my old noise-cancelling headphones circuitry. Can anyone provide a good link or a short step-by-step procedure to disassembling this thing without damaging it?
