Why not just use it and if it breaks (probably only if you're extra rough with it), get a replacement then? Instead of spending money on something you don't know will happen.

Well, if it's a preventable issue, then I would rather spend the money to prevent it from happening. But it sounds like everyone is pretty confident in the fact that the stock cable is well-built, so, a moot concern now.

Ditto

 

If you're using a 1/4 jack there is no additional adapter in the way.

I don't understand what you're considering to be the 'preventable issue' here. It should be having to buy another cable. Which can only be avoided by not and keeping the original. If the preventable issue to you is the cable breaking, that makes no sense. 

But yes, I think it's a great sturdy cable. So moot

Okay, well, thanks for your useless argument :confused_face:

I've had more than one mishap and there was no physical damage or change in performance. I stepped on the wire and a connector even popped out of the earcup with no ill effect.

You clearly dont have very good hearing (or your gear is not high quality). Dont you know that if you step on your cable, even once, the crystaline structure of the metal molecules are thrown wildly out of flux and this ads distortion (not measurable but very audible if you know what to listen for)!

even though was wondering for the sound, and not the speed.

Several bands of black metal or post-metal that I listen to have reduced speed of execution, slowly, doomy, ambient and atmospheric passages.

 

Ah Ok, if you like sludge, doom, post metal, and other slower metal genres like stoner I don't see why the HD600 won't be any good, its main focus is the mid range which is a main focus of that type of music. I'm listening to Cult of Luna Vicarious Redemption right now on my HD600 and previously Candlemass and I thought it sounds very full and spacious.

Agreed. In fact, I just listened to Kylesa - Ultraviolet last night and it sounded phenomenal.

If you think advise that's trying to help save you from buying something you don't need is useless then I guess it was.

Sorry for getting off topic.

My hearing and gear are just fine, perhaps better than your manners. The crystaline structure of the metal in my cables are also fine, I am familiar with stress analysis (Hooke's Law). It so happens to be that I used to design digital weighing equipment and know a thing or to about elastic deformation vs.plastic deformation. Were you referring to HD, IMD or TIMD? Oh by the way, we can measure distortion far below the human ability to perceive, You can look into research done on human Just Detectable Distortion  (JDD) and be surprised.

post #5160 of 8682
Hmm, I am not familiar with TIMD - is it a temporal phenomenon of some sort? Phase related or is it more of an H.G. Wellsian effect? Of course, HD and IMD usually go hand in hand, although IMD is more objectionable being non-harmonic.

Anyways, Im glad your cable survived the ordeal with no ill effects. It's reassuring to know that Sennheiser provides a quality cable that can maintain its Golden Ratio under such duress, thus keeping unwanted resonances at bay throughout the life of the cable. biggrin.gif
