Ding ding ding. We have a winner. Yep, it's the 428 and it does fit my criteria (just) with its impossibly stringy ~4ft cable.

What? Amazon says it's cable is 10 feet long :(

The 428 has a 3 meter cable??

3 meters = 9.84251969 feet

Edit: Oops, didn't notice someone got it right already.

Congrats! I would have never guessed.

I looked at all sennheiser headphones on amazon and I always excluded the circumaural ones from my count...redface.gif

I so dearly hope I got it right... ljokerl said we'd be "a bit surprised... or peeved... not sure", and that would be in line with a headphone we mentioned but got ignored.

 

I noticed that the only mention of the HD428 is in a double-guess that joker shot down saying there is a one guess every 12-hour restriction.  And it is pretty much the only "normal" phone left, I think.  It has a short cord I think; my friend owned it.

 

So again, just in case my guess is 10/11 + Sennheiser HD428

or

 

Sony: ZX700, V6
Sennheiser: PX100-ii, HD428
Audio Technica: SQ5, FC700
Ultrasone: 15G, 650
Philips: The Stretch
Pioneer: SE-MJ5
AKG: Q460

what's the prize?

OMGWTFBBQ

he announced it as I typed my justification!

 

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Well, congratulations either way. Both Sennheiser's website and Amazon say the HD428 has a 3m/10foot cable. They must have updated it or something. BLAH! :( I noticed that we had skirted around it (418, 438, 448) but the 10 foot cable excluded it from the requirements. Or so I thought.

post #1540 of 4545

never went trough my head!

 

congrats to the lucky bastard winner!

Ah, I never checked the specifications but I'm wearing them right now and the cord is definitely shorter than the 5' one on my HD25 since I've ripped them off my head once or twice already. I guess you can all blame the Sennheiser/Amazon conspiracy for this one.

 

@Hayang: PM me your mailing address and I'll get something out to you on my next trip to the PO.

Same here :/ Multiple sources on youtube say it's 10 ft long as well..

But congrats to Hayang!

 

EDIT: Apparently the HD428S version that is sold more frequently on ebay has a 1.4m cable, which would explain it.

I think it's a bit early for that - there's still three full days left in the contest.



 

Ok, that makes sense, forgot about the deadline... Who's up for 3 solid days of "Guess that Sennheiser!"?
 

EDIT: Whoops, posted way late...

Congrats to the winner, kind of excluded the 4X8 series because of the long cable.
