Like I said mine don't have those 4 tabs.  As I was taking out the ear pads I saw the fabric extend and I had to use my finger to stretch it out so it can come off the headphones.  The bottom part was all smooth with no tabs.

Actually I just took it out again and there's nothing hard...no plastic ring behind it.  Just pure fabric and pleather.

That's because you left in the mounting ring on the cups by accident. The mounting ring is supposed to stay with the pads.

 

You don't take the pads off by yanking them off, but by disengaging the 4 tabs below the mounting ring so that the whole pad assembly comes off.

I knew that.  I was just testing you guys out to see if y'all could recognize the fake problem I created tongue_smile.gif  But seriously though, thanks bro!  I was wondering why the hell can't I get it on and I was about to go insane.

You don't need to thank us. Some velour impressions would be in place, though!

Does anyone here have the HE-6 balanced cable? I'm wondering if it's as stiff and prone to microphonics as the HE-500 stock cable...

when i had the he-6, i´ve always listened the he-500 with this cable.

the cable is flexible and no microphonic but really short.

another question: when i listened, with my beta, the he-500 with the balanced he-6 cable, totally silence without music.

now i have my he-500 haqrwired with the norseaudio norn and without music i listen some noises

if you want, we speak in português through pm

Yes I have the stock HE-6 cable - no microphonics issues. Very flexible.

Did you say you are hearing noise using the NorseAudio cable with no music turned on? Dirty USB signal or maybe break in solder points?

How were your audio chain with the HE-6 cable? How is your audio chain with the norse cable? Please explain in details, are there any differences in the chain?
