At the end of day it doesn’t matter what you think. what matters is that I do, and lucky for me there are a whole bunch people who do too. And some of these people (bless their souls) will dedicate a considerable amount of time, effort, and resource into improving cables, and other related gear for our better sound experience.

 

Go play with cows instead of trolling around hi-fi forums with annoying nonsense.douche

I'm not a particular fan of the name calling, but Lenni's reaction isn't at all surprising.  It's very difficult for some to see other perspectives from their's.

my experiences with recabling:

 

i replaced my HD580 cable with a HD650 cable the difference? i got sound in the right channel (the original cable broke and the 650 cable was actually cheaper)

 

do i believe that cables affect sound? nowhere near the level of some people here who might have breathed some good old magic smoke while building their DIY components

 

there are SOME things a cable CAN affect that COULD affect the sound... but and this is a big but most cables don't affect these things enough to make the difference that some people around here preach

 

now back to the OP will recabling your HD600s make a difference? well you mention crackling so yes it will probably get rid of that since your cable is obviously having issues but beyond fixing problems no noticable difference... if your amp has a 1/4" jack you'll get a more reliable connection using a cable with a 1/4" plug than you do with the standard cable+adapter

I was rereading some of this thread when I can across your comment Mike.

 

I haven't read any impressions that said the 880s sound even remotely like 650s. 

 

What's up?

You are the second person I know experienced the exact same thing. I know one more person who told me this from his experience. When I read this I couldn't believe it was someone else.

well I am now using some hd650 cable with my hd600. It was a gift from appleheadmay from this forum. They are better at build and looks, but sound wise I couldn't spot differences, but I am not a experimented listener, so it is normal... I guess

I’ve asked myself the same question. meh, I should’ve known better than getting myself involved in some useless cable debate with some freaking ignorant cretin. I don’t know what’s got into me (live & learn I guess). never again. don't worry about it. nothing worth mentioning.

You really need to get banned. If you still haven't realised, your behaviour is completely unacceptable, and further, no-one actually agrees with you. 'Ignorant cretin' is a sadly ironic insult in your case.

I actually understand and take his position as a reasonable, just not the insulting and name calling.  I'd personally never condone that, though in this case, I can understand why it happened.

I found changing the stock cable to the Cardas Smurf Blue to give a warmer more detailed sound.

I use Cardas cable to dry my laundry. It only takes 15 minutes for it to dry while with the rope I use normally it takes up to an hour. Placebo? I think not!

Buy the cable, listen, sell it if you don't like it and don't forget to report back. The difference is so small its not worth 200$, the only thing what is good about it its shorter and purty. But you can make that by yourself.

Mmmmm,

 

So your phones are SR80's yet you want to spend $200 on a cable?

 

What do you think will give you more improvement for your buck, a $200 cable or a Headphone upgrade?

 

Anyone who advises you to go for the cable is a 

charlatan
