Nice work and an interesting video. Looking forward to seeing your future improvements :)
Did you get this squared away? Double check with the stock cable, sometimes the little spring pins in the HD600/650 can get loose over the years and need a little tightening. If the stock cable works fine, the cable should be easy to repair, just have to replace the connector with a Cardas or Furutech, and might as well replace the other side to match.  
Homegrown in one of the most reliable sources I know for Teflon coated silver wire, so you can't go wrong with them. You can find solid core silver cheaper elsewhere if you are willing to sleeve it yourself. I wouldn't recommend sleeving anything longer than 3 feet or so though, as the friction gets to be too great. If you look elsewhere, dead-soft high purity silver is the most desirable for audio. 24 gauge is usually a good size to go with for ICs.   I don't recommend...
Ha! Is there a bleeder resistor in place? Accidentally discharging that cap would be very unpleasant.
Indeed, the Cardas cable is great. That enameled litz copper has a nice warmth to it. You can get the jacketed 4x24 cable, or save a few bucks and braid/sleeve the wire yourself.
 Excellent post and the linked article by Pass is a great read. The Crack w/Speedball and the ECP/Beezar Torpedo are the best value tube headphone amplifiers I've personally heard. I personally like my Crack better with higher impedance cans like my DT990 600ohm and modified Darth Beyers, but that's with copious tweaking and part changes. As stated, the Edcor output xformers make the Torpedo a better candidate for Grados, Denons, etc. Also don't forget about the S.E.X.,...
I purchased this messenger bag brand new, it's never been used. I need to sell a few things to make room to keep my sig other off my case ;) Retails for $289 new from Duluth Trading Co. I'm taking a hit and letting it go for $159 shipped. It should fit in a USPS Priority box, so you can get it pretty quickly. The leather is nice and thick, and overall the bag is awesomely built. It'll probably last a century or more if well taken care of. Also, check out the cool laptop...
This is a beautiful bag made by Passion Leather, and I hate to part with it but I'm consolidating to make room. It's 16 inches wide, so it can hold anything from a Apple Macbook to a heavy 15.6" gaming laptop, as well as an A/C adapter and your documents. Nice durable olive green canvas on the inside that looks like it will hold up for decades of use, and you'll be sure to get plenty of compliments using this bag. I bought it new several months ago and only used it...
Very exciting project, nice work L-Train! :) 
That's a tough one. I'm assuming this is out of warranty?    Do you have a multimeter? I personally would test the resistance from the headphone connection to the connector from each cup (depending on your meter accuracy, should be around an ohm or less). I would also test the resistance between the ground to the signal, should be however many ohms the impedance of the headphone is (ex. 32 ohms). If anything was off, that will determine the issue. If nothing is off, it...
