The Headphone Extension Cable Thread... - Page 6

post #76 of 80
I owned a rs-1, so i tried it with the grado extension cable in comparison to the dimarzio big red.

all i can say is:
get rid of the grado extension cable. it sounds very colored and dark. it colors the grado rs-1 even more.

the dimarzio big red opens up everything, without adding anything in it's path.

might try the huricane some time.maybe this one is a little better?!

I agree on the sonic deterioration of the Grado extension. This is what Grado says on this (from homepage):

"This cable is constructed from the same high quality wire as their headphone cable. For longer lengths the cable may be piggybacked up to 3 cables. Grado guarantees no degradation of sonic quality with Grado headphones while using their extension cable."

I wonder what reference system they used to find out this! A Walkman?

This thread has been dead for some time but I am in the market for a 1m to 2m extension.  Are there opinions which is the right choice in the under $100 dollar range.  I'm using hifiman he-400's.

1m to 2m, and for $100, you have a plenty of choices.

Buy some Superlux HD668B's, there's nice 2 meter extension cable in the package.
