I'm joking, of course.  So now you've got me curious as to why I shouldn't be sticking my sticky feet to other, different, sticky feet.  Not that I'm changing my setup.  I like it when those tiny vibrations whisper in my ear.

You could always suspend it on a Sky Hook.

And another thing..my wife is deadly...u will never ever pass her to enter the living room.... biggrin.gif

It's going to take a lot more than some puny at home woofer to make me deaf, I beat you to that long ago when I had a Marshall Stack and played clubs. Seems like it was only yesterday.

Sometimes newer isn't better, The Sennheiser HD650 was supposed to replace the HD600's. We all know that didn't happen.

So (Changing topics) when you made your HE-500 cable...above the split what did you do with the extra conductors in the W2799 cable?

Topic?  What topic?  We don't need no steenkeen topic here, man!  ;)

 

On the TRS end I used Red for Right (well... duh! ;-), Blue for Left, and twisted Clear and Black together for Ground.  Above the split (I use amp as Bottom, cans as Top in my descriptions) I have Red and Black going Right, Blue and Clear going Left.  So, no extra conductors above the split, just positive and negative, signal and ground, whatever the proper terms are.  Red and Blue get fed through the center of the SMC connectors to the pins, and the grounds from the TRS (Clear and Black) get soldered to the knurled posts on the SMCs.

 

Here are some pix to help illustrate:
