It's the cable that makes the difference, not the model of headphone. So a HP-1 with upgraded cable will sound better than an HP-2 with the old cable. A HP-2 w/ the upgrade cable will sound better than a HP-2 w/ the old cable. A HP-2 w/ the upgrade cable will sound better than a HP-1 w/ the old cable. A HP-1 w/ the upgrade cable will sound better than a HP-1 w/ the old cable.
I said :
|As far as I know, I don't think that any HP-1's were made with this cable (what does your cable say?).
So by reading that, you it should tell you that I wasn't 100% sure if any HP-1's were made with this cable or not.
|Well, as far as I know, HP-1's were made with this cable. I have the upgraded one and have actually heard the old cable as well.
How long ago was it that you heard the old cable?
As far as this cable being different than the cable that Grado uses now, I remember reading this somewhere on-line. Of course, John Grado says that his cable (for the top models) are even better, so you know.
One of the disscussions that we had at Headwize was about this was about one person who thought about changing the cable on his HP-1000's with the current high end Grado cable and if this would change the HP sound to the point where it would sound too different than the older upgraded cable. At the end, I belive that everyone decided that they would be better off staying with the default cable.
