I have heard the 560's and was fairly impressed,
How long have you had these? Should you really have to "re-engineer" them? I have heard the 560's and was fairly impressed, but stories like this one (design and/or QC problems) seem to be common regarding Hifiman products. I'd contact the manufacturer before performing "surgery" on them even if they are no longer in warranty. Maybe you can get some satisfaction.
Check with norne audio.
Well they do have these:http://www.norneaudio.com/litzheim/norne-hyper-short-audeze-lcd-2-3-x-xc-hifiman-he-5-6-560-adapters?search=hifimanI guess that's one way to go....I took the grills off and there is not enough room to directly mount a miniXLR, it would need to be mounted in an external thing, kinda the way Audeze do it.
No, there is not enough room The amount of space on the ... big round thing... between the driver and the edge of it is not enough for a mini-XLR.If you hardwire, how do you fasten the cable to stop it moving? (To avoid stress on the leads to the drivers)
I did contact Hifiman and they want $230 to replace the sockets with the newer types.
My HE-6's are hardwired, and it's just simply glue and a couple layers of heat shrink that hold it in place.
If you're not comfortable physically modifying them, which is understandable, maybe make a short adapter - 2.5mm receptacle to male hifiman, one for each side. Then if you tug too hard on the cable, it'll just pull out the trs plug.
