I may be mistaken but my guess is that when the 600's were originally designed, portability wasn't a consideration. Wearing full sized cans on the go wasn't done back than.

Kind of apples and oranges if you're bringing that up in a 600 thread.

I wear my TH600s as my portable home from work on the train nearly every day. They're not really portable and I get weird looks but who cares

Errr...that's like complaining that you can't use the LCD-3 outside. 

 

They were not meant to be used outside.

I'm using my HD600 at home and my Etymotic ER4PT or Phonak PFE232/PFE022 (grey filters) outdoors. There are better CIEMs out there (eg. Noble Audio, JH Audio etc.) that's why I'm saving up for a good pair that will be able to at least equal the HD600 experience. So far the nearest I've heard is the JH13 Pro but that's more than 3 times the price of the HD600. Honestly I still haven't come across anything that equals the HD600 experience at the same price.

Newsflash: open headphones were designed to minimize backwaves bouncing back and around inside the chamber, not for wearing outside. That's why people on this thread have IEMs and recommendations for similar, complimentary IEMs have been asked here before. That you can use them with many mainstream sources is just a bonus for when the power's out and you don't have such IEMs yet (works fine, but not spectacular, out of my iPad2; useless with my old Creative DAPs as full volume isn't even near 3/4 on the iPad2 and they're already distorting badly).

It was kind of baffling; it was one factor that was never really a concern in this thread apart from "what IEM sounds like it."

Does the spring basically straighten out which is what causes the intermittent connection with the cable pin? By re-bend, I take it you mean to try to put it to back to its original spring shape?

Two very thin voice coil wires extend out from the driver.

Yes, you need to bend the spring coils back to its OEM shape
