As was mentioned earlier, the AIAIAI TMA-1

 

Out of curiosity, why is this an important factor?

cables

 

I want to find a cheap decent headphone with 3.5mm jacks on each cup for a cable experiment, that's all.

 

Anyone know what the cheapest Sony or Ultrasone with 3.5mm jacks is?

When on each cup, they would usually be mono jacks... stereo for one-sided entry. (And what you linked are rca... don't know if that was your intent, or those were just for illustration purposes). 

 

It would be easy enough to mod something with detachable jacks - do it with something like a grado SR60i, and at least in the end your experiment will be something worth using down the line. :)

A mono jack on each cup seems more versatile.

 

I'd rather not modify the headphone, I want the experiment to be open to others as well, I can make the cable, however - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Neotech-Wire-UPOCC-Solid-Core-7N-Silver-30AWG-Teflon-/320769010864

The problem with a mono jack is it can easily fall off. I'd never take it outside.

Put the jack on top, and route the wires down the side (a-la the Sennheiser 25-1 ii)

This one looks really good, 3.5mm jack on both ends of the cable, good looking headphone, cheap.

Carbon fibre, steel, etc.

 

Buy some silver wire and neutrik jacks on ebay, and you have yourself a cheap copper versus silver experiment. ;)

That looks to me like it's hardwired to the cup... and their use of the word "integrated" in the description makes me think it too.

I believe we can add KRK Systems KNS 6400 and 8400 to the list.

 

 

The KNS 6400 are quite cheap too, and supposed to have very high detail retrieval, intended for use as a true studio monitor headphone I think... not just a bassy headphone with "studio monitor" on the box. ;)

KRK 6400 is 2.5mm on the headphone side. 8400 is probably the same.
