Good thing the OEM HD650 replacement-cable is cheap/awesome.

It's actually not the cable itself, I found. When I moved the two-pin plug where it goes into the earcup, the sound in the left channel crackled and cut in and out. So I unplugged it and plugged it back in - now it's back to normal! Weird.

That's good news.  Free fixes are the best!

That's probably a sign that there's wear on the solder of the contacts to the driver. Do you pull the cable out often?

I listen to the HD600 through an Arcam irDAC, Graham Slee Solo Ultra Linear Diamond Edition and Cardas cable. Every day it puts a grin on my face or goosebumps on my arms. Truly exceptional headphone.

U are using the Cardas upgrade cable for the HD600...if so, me too...

Hence my asking if he pulls the cable out often. :regular_smile :

I had a listen to The Beatles - Abbey Road album for the first time on the marantz cd player and HD600... then I moved to something 'new' in Daft Punk - RAM... jolly goodness me. What an experience. HD600 you are absolutely my king.

 

I mentioned I didn't really recall a difference between the stock HD600 cable and the replacement HD650 I had to replace it with, but I'm really curious now if it actually improves the sound. I still have the HD600 cable (which has one side working) would it make a valid test to plug one side with HD650 cable and the other with HD600 with output from the same device?

I didn't even think about these things before. It's the head-fi effect. I promise. :)

It's a killer. The only cure is when you realise that the 600's are so nice that you don't need to worry about the minuscule difference things like cables may or may not make. IMHO of course.

I feel like I stirred some angst regarding cables a few posts back so let me state a few things for the record:

 

1. I sometimes flame posts regarding cables.

 

2. Don't take it personally.

 

3. I seriously urge you to listen to an hd600(or any other headphone) with original cable and any re-cabled version to see if you really hear a difference BEFORE you re-cable.Especially if your not a tweaking kind of guy and simply think it will sound better because someone said so.

 

4. There's nothing wrong with being a "tweaking kind of guy".

 

5.. I myself have a very nice custom custom cable for my hd600.It's a Mogami W2534 cable with cardas connectors and a gold Neutrik jack. It looks real nice, it's clearly more durable and it doesn't tangle as easy as the original.It's also a more suitable length for my setup.I (no matter what I try to convince myself) can't hear any difference between it and the original.

 

6. Enjoy your headphones.

I've only pulled out the cable 2-3 times since I've had them. I got them used so I'm not sure about the previous owner.

It worked perfectly for almost a year plugged in the same way...
