Is It Really Worth 'Upgrading' Sennheiser HD 580/600/650 Cables? - Page 14

Sort of like how a clean car drives better.  I know it isn't true but it really really seems true when I'm driving.

I totally agree about the car. And the better your headphones look (ie: nice cable in slick sleeves) the better you'll think it sounds. Cable companies count on that...

But they look so much nicer.  Would that not count for something?

I agreed, I just purchased the cardas cable for my 650, honestly I cannot tell the different between the cardas and the stock cable. But it does look much better.

FYI. I just returned the Cardas cable becuase it generates static when the plug is moved while plugged in. I don't have issue like this with the stocked cable. Beside I cannot really tell any difference with the Cardas cable, rather spend that $220 on something else.

This must be your ears. The Cardas opens up the 650's, improving soundstage and removing the veil...

^ this.

The equinox cable is a bigger improvement.

 

But, if you can't hear the difference, please don't say that others can't.

Or his ears are fine and he just did a proper, less biased comparison?

If you haven't been abducted by aliens, please don't say that others haven't. Do you see the fallacy?

 

In other words if you and others spread anecdotes about hearing differences then please don't expect others to take them as anything other than anecdotes.

Keeping in mind that this is the sound science forum it is not unreasonable to require some kind of scientific evidence whose requirements clearly are not met by anecdotes.

Fairy tales are ok and even stimulated on other forums only.

May be a result of either poor solder joint in the cable or even loosening of the connector springs in the headphone driver assembly - or even more low-tech maybe the plug isn't inserted all the way?  Static should not be happening irregardless!

Impossible. Cardas cable is best cable

Dunno if you were sarcastic the last time, but now you definitely are, right?

Since this is the sound science forum, why is it the best cable?

Because it opens up the 650's, improving soundstage and removing the veil.

The stock cable work fine no static and I have a shorter Cardas before this one which doesn't have the same problem. So I think it is a problem the connector.

 

But, if you can't hear the difference, please don't say that others can't.

 

I did not said others can't but to my untrained ears, there is no difference.
