Thanks for the replies. I think my used pair actually came with d5000 cables. I can see some cotton/paper showing through the outter nylon braid in a few spots.

So...differances in the D5k and D7k cable? My D2k has quote a "D7k stock cable" ... my cable was... well I dunno it didn't feel really thick or anything but it wasn't really all that tangle prone... still I've asked my repair man to check for me since all in all he's reterminating it and he should be able to confirm that my cable is NOT a stock D2k without any trouble at all

I had Martin shorten mine to 4'.  Well worth it if you don't want a very unwieldy, long, thick, tangle-prone cable.....................

 

What I want on my D7000 I have on my TH900 - the Q silk braided.................it is so light and flexible I get spoiled by it.

You COULD have it on both, if they were both detachable cable modded ;)

 

It's cost efficient, and makes the phones more versatile.

Chances are I'll have that down by Brian at BTG when I can afford it, I want all 3 of my headphones rewired for deTachable Mini XLRs. I may do my W1000x that way to start. Although I'd want the entire headphone rewired, including waht ever crappy stock wires may be in side the driver unit it self

meaning I may have a hard re wire on each of my cans first, then MINI Xlr them one at a time later down the road. I'm not sure when I want to shoot into T90 and HE 500 territority or jump right into T1 and LDC XC.... I might wait and jump into the $1500 cans, and tinker with what I have now for the time being. BUT I might not, seeing as I WANT a W5000k... i hear so many mixed reviews about it... need to hear it for my self!

Sadly Right on Cap detachables are hard to come by, now one wants to work out the space in the wood or metal housings... you'll have to live with earings :3

I'm contemplating buying some molding supplies for making resin molds at tax time, along with a pair of DT880's. I am thinking about trying to see what kinds of sounds I can get out of the 250 ohm drivers they have, and then maybe making a mold of their cups and forming it into something totally different, and including a detachable cable input similar to the Alphas.. I'm still contemplating it though. When I'm at work, I let my mind wander and think of things like this. I'd like to come up with something like that to make some side money someday, that would be pretty sweet, and fun!

So is there a trick to keep the D2000 cable from getting all twisted and kinked? While we are at it, is there a way to fix the cable after it gets twisted and kinked?
post #3253 of 4946

I see people saying their D2K cable is always twisted and whatever, but I have never had a problem with mine, ever. What do you guys do with your headphones that causes this to happen?

 i have a pair of d-5000 since the cable is so long i just rolled it up and put a tye rap on cable but next step is to cut it to 4-5 feet long like i had done to my Senns HD800 cable im always at my desk so 4-5 feet is perfect for me .
