HEADPHONE CABLES

One of the most popular modifications Head-Fi'ers make to their high-end headphones is to replace their stock cables. Headphones with removable cables--like the HD 800, HD 6XX, LCD-2/3, HE-series planars, and many others--are just begging Head-Fi'ers to go for that easy upgrade.

The Head-Fi'ers' desire to recable--combined with the fact that many Head-Fi'ers also own several different kinds of amps--led companies like ALO Audio (www.aloaudio.com) and Moon Audio (www.moon-audio.com) to come up with universal headphone cables that have detachable adapter ends that allow the headphone to be used with just about any amp made without having to swap out the main cable.

Mini plugs, 1/4" plugs, dual 3-pin XLR, the proprietary plug required for use with the SR-71B / Rx Mk3--I use all of these. Every replacement headphone cable I order from now on will be the universal adapter-end type.
