You can buy RS extensions already made for very cheap, but I think a $39 Grado extension will sound a little better if you have revealing system.......are you sure you hear no difference?
Yes I am shocked
Don't know when I'll ever see this cable
I won't waste money on the Grado. Since their headphones can't produce reasonable bass at a reasonable price, they would not have extentions to reveal bass.
The cables I use are 18 gage copper. Most extentions use smaller diameter wire, although more exotic materials.
SInce the headphone cable sounded good I tried a long interconnect made the same way. That stunk.
I think If I had really good headphones that showed bass in a realistic manner (the HD600's don't), the 18 gage might show up as not so hot. But I doubt it.
My thoughts lately are not to the exotic pricy pretty premade ones, but to some Straightwire Quartet speaker wire, made of the same exotic materials as headphone extentions, but of 14 gage wire (!), and only $40 for 10 feet.
Oh yeah, my cables kink like crazy.
And they are not pretty or status symbols
Hmmmm. You may have misread my first post. I have the Radio Shack extentions, but don't use them, they STINK. I use my DIY ones.
