post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I just ordered 2 HD600 Grills from SennUSA, and they are in stock, so if anyone was wanting any, you might want to order now. They were $7.something each with a 3dollar first class shipping. The lady I talked to was very friendly! Gotta love good service!

I SEE YOU HAVE 580'S , ARE YOU PLANNING TO USE THEM ON THE 580'S AND WHAT BENEFIT DO YOU EXPECT FROM THAT MOD

anyways, i guess i should be very grateful that senn canada sells them for 4.60$ + 11$ shipping (in canadian dollars). Two pairs of grilles came out to about 20$ shipped!

I don't think they ship to the US do they?

They don't ship to the UK and we can't get them over here without paying a bloody fortune for the grill, anyone willing to order an extra grill and post it to the UK via USPS Global Priority mail?

I didn't ask when i called. It took awhile to actually get a hold of someone in the parts dept of senn canada.

The representative did refer me to some official senn dealers in my city, but i insisted to order through them. So if you try calling Senn USA they may be able to refer you to dealers that also sell parts or you can ask senn canada if they ship to the states.

Sennheiser will not ship outside of specific countries, when I originally ordered my HD600 grills they where about $7 US while I was forced to buy from Senn Canada at $12.63 each plus shipping at a total cost of about $37.
Which was okay then, as the phones where still retailing in Canada at $449.00 two years ago but, now can be had for as low as $129.00 US.

grandenigma1,

The following is true for Sennheiser USA as of 12/28/06 (I don't know about Canada).

I'm thinking that the quote you've had (approx $40) is for the Senn 600 ear cushion (not what you want unless you need new ear cushions). The 600 grills (outer metal mesh) that is part of the "standard" Senn 580 upgrade mentioned here on Head-fi is Part # 092815 (Description) "Perf Sheet for Cap Ring HD600 Ear Cap" is approx $7.93 each (you need 2). These grills must be ordered by calling the Senn. replacement parts dept as they are not listed on the web site--at least in the USA.

If you want to complete the 580 to 600 mod, then also order the 650 (not 600) cable Part # 092885 "cable, 3m w. 6.35mm stereo plu" $11.62. Be sure to order the 650 adapter #092595, $4.86 if you need an 1/8" (iPod) jack as the 650 cable terminates with a 1/4" jack.

You might want to check out this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/showth...t=Senn+600+mod.

Also you could do a search in this forum for "600 mods."

The HD580 (approx $125, check Amazon .com) and HD600 (approx $300) have the same driver element. I have gathered that one significant difference between them are the grills (plastic mesh on the 580s and metal mesh on the 600s). There may also be some difference in the cables, but the 650 cable fits the 580 and is generally considered an upgrade over the 580/600 cable.
Many seem to feel that the modded 580 (grills & cable) have superior sound quality to the stock HD600 (think HD580, $125 + $38, vs HD600 - $300).

I did the mod. I only did a brief A/B (I have 2 HD 580s) between the stock 580 and the modded 580. The cable change seemed to give me slightly better base response. Various descriptions of this cable mod have reported better highs and more open mids, but with possible detrimental effects on soundstage and imaging.

The grill upgrade made a greater difference in SQ to me. The sound opened up and became more "airy" with a somewhat larger "soundstage."
For my money it was well worth the upgrade cost of about $38 (including $5 shipping. Be sure to get the 1/4" to 1/8" cable adapter if you need an 1/8" jack for a MP3 player or portable amp. (The 580 & 600 terminate in an 1/8" jack, but the 650 cable terminates in a 1/4" jack.)

Right I've just been quoted £22-ish for just ONE HD600 grill (that's around £45 for the pair + P&P) from the UK Sennheiser dealers, Senn UK don't sell them directly!

Anyone in the US willing to order 2 extra HD600 grills for around $16 ($20 including shipping?) and ship it to me via USPS Global Priority mail which would cost around $10-$15 USD, I can pay $45 via Paypal...

Well, I just called in
HD600 Grills = Stock #092815
HD650 Cable= Stock #092885

US: has them back ordered until Feb 19
Canada: Haven't been able to get a hold of them keeps bringing me to messsage which idk why maybe they are on a lunch break?

I will keep you guys updated I'll be calling Canada later once in awile till I get a hold of them.

edit: well I decided to order them from US I had not luck speaking to anyone in Canada all I got was the message machine which is kinda weired because they should be open unless it's a Canadian holiday.

Ordered mine on December 27th and they shipped out Tuesday of this week. Of course I got a copy of the invoice from Sennheiser before the actual grills . Hopefully they'll come in tomorrow. Supposedly when I ordered the grills were back ordered until the 9th of February too.

Could someone make a one big order of those HD600 grills/HD650 cables? They are pretty expensive in Europe and I guess many of us (Europeans) would want a pair. Of course PayPal payment in advance would be required but i guess it would not be a problem...

Of course a money reward for that kind head-fi'er would be included

Anyone?

Im in for HD650 cable and one pair of HD600 grills...
