Replacement cord for Panasonic RP-HJE900

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I bought a pair of Pana RP-HJE900 in-ears about six months ago.  I really like these headphones, and would like to get a good replacement cord.  I already tried the sleek audio SA headphone cord, but I can DEFINITELY hear a difference in the sound quality.  I think it's most likely because I'm an idiot and ordered the wrong cord-- the metal parts on the plugs that go into the ear pieces are significantly shorter than the plugs on the original cord.

 

Is there a Sleek Audio cord that is more appropriate for these headphones?  Or, does anyone have a link to buy the original cord that is still available in Japan?  I've been looking for it but I haven't had any luck finding a place to buy it.

 

Thanks,

T

I've read somewhere (although I can't find it now) that the HJE900s use the exact same connector as Sleek Audio uses for their headphones. You can order the SA1 cable from Sleek's webstorem which has straight connectors.

I bought the SA1 cord.  The connectors do look like the original Pana connectors, but they are significantly shorter-- probably about a millimeter.  I think it results in an incomplete connection, and the sound quality of the headphones is greatly reduced. :(  I don't know what to do about it because I have no idea where to buy the original cord.

Ah, sorry - I must have misread your first post.

You might want to try calling Panasonic and asking if you can buy a replacement cord. They'll probably sell one to you - after all, why else would they make the cords replaceable?

I am using the SA6 cable for a while now. While the connectors are shorter, I found no SQ difference from the stock cable.

Actually I have to agree with the OP on this one. I just tested the SA6 cable with the HJE900s. They sounded distinctly more muffled

Bump, I bought the SA6 cable, and even tough the cable is longer and the connectors are angled I do prefer the original cable, thing is that the right connector of the original stop working. Any Ideas where I can buy an original pannie cable?

I found this link on another thread on hje900 replacement cables. These are the japanese replacement cables, which doesnt have the silver finish.

I am one of the few who actually thinks the HJE-900 sounds better with the Sleek cable.
