It's tough to tell from the picture, what kind of sleeve is on the cable? It looks like tech-flex, but it's tough to make out for sure.

Scroll down the page - the Senn replacement cable is the last item on the page.
Thanks. I looked there but apparently the old web page was stuck in my internet cache which was why the cable wasn't showing up.

$55 is extremely cheap! I can't wait to read the reviews...

Broke how? You mean it fell apart, or....?

No sound from one of the channel, probably a bad connection/join.

Hallo Headphonecrazy,

All cables that leave my house are checked and should work properly. Of course a cable may break, but by experience most problems that appear with the HD600 are due to the rather lousy connection inside the earcups of the phone. The two small pins of the cable make just contact to a very small and vulnerable spring. Contact area is truly minimal.

Also, be aware that the connectors should be put in the first time with some force. When many problems arose with the first series of HD600s Sennheiser changed the opening in the marble-like "strap" through which the connector passes. There now is a very tight fit that should prevent small movements of the connector. If the connector isn't brought in deep enough contact will not be made.

Tip, exchange the left and right connectors of the cable. If the problem also changes channels, than the cable indeed is defective. Of course defective cables will be immediately replaced.

Do you have a multimeter and are you able to measure resistances?

Cheers,

Jan

I received Jan Meier's cable today and have been enjoying it. I like the sound of it so far.

Could you please give an honest opinion as compared to the other Senn cables you've heard, how big of an upgrade is it? I want to know that it's more than a symbolic upgrade before I take the plunge.

Iron,

Hello there. I'm going to let the cable burn in (or, if you don't believe in cable burn in, think of it as letting music play through it) for a few days. After that I'll give my impression. All I'll say now is that I like it.

Hmm, well considering that you make a competing cable, I might take your comment to be all I need

:O maybe this will be my next upgrade :O are the cables alot stiffer than the stock ones? i have seen some of those other cables, they look like they are rock hard...

I believe in being honest. If it sounds good I'll say so.


TheMuffinMan_01,

It's as flexible as the stock HD650 cable.
