Also FiiO makes cables for the HD598 as well.
Speaking of cables for the HD598 anybody get weird noise in their right ear when using an amp with stock cable?
For some reason when I have it hooked to a Schiit Magni it makes a bit of noise in the right ear at different pot positions.
I think it may have something to do with the 2.5mm TRRS connector at the top.
I have used the 598's stock cable with a Benchmark DAC1, Sugden Headmaster, CEntrance HiFi-M8, and Resonessence Labs Herus without hearing any odd noises.
Maybe a noisy volume pot?
But speaking of that 2.5mm TRRS plug, I have no idea why they use that when the other end is a 3 pole TRS plug, meaning the 2 channels share a common ground/return/negative pole at that end.
Still more mysterious is that some of the replacement cables are TRS (3 pole) at both ends, for instance the Oyaide HPC-35/62HD598. You wouldn't think that would work.
