the chain is the same. i used the norn with the jvc dx-1000 and with the he-500.

same problem: too much noise. probably is a strange incompatibility of this cable with my rig

Normally a cable should be noiseless when no sound goes through... Maybe u have bad (1/4 or 1/8) connector or bad/loosened soldering in ur phones to the cable??? Do uhear the noise on both channels?? Try the phone on a amp with balance control..or dual volume control to check that..

Pity u cant try other cables with ur he500 now to find out if it really is ur cable or ur he500.(it could be ur he500 has a faulty part since recently). But Thats the risk of having ur he500 hardwired!! redface.gif

i tried my he-500 with hifiman balanced cable: no noise.

when i had the norn in the dx-1000, i resolved the problema with 4 100 ohm resistors.

the problema is the cable in my rig.

in september arrives another he-6 for experiences

of course this situation is annoying. i spent some Money but experimentation is part of the game.

i will sell the he-500 to buy anotherdeadhorse.gif

can you explain better, please?

Peter cut it to 6 ft added some dampening material and covered it with nylon I used same connectors, but you also can upgrade those
I am very happy with the results

I've seen a case or two of the HE-500 cable failing (one I am working on sleeving and reterminating one for a friend - he had a wire break inside the TRS plug strain relief and it caused noise and cutting out) so that could be the problem.

I think you guys are mixing things up(or maybe it's me). He said he's experiencing noise issues with his Norseaudio balanced cable, not the HE-500 stock cable.

I understand that just telling all who are interested in improving their cable a easy way

My mistake, I think you are right...but I suspect it is a similar issue of it just needing repaired/re-terminated.

Funny Story:

 I ordered my pair of hifiman HE 500 about 20 days ago from ebay. Today it arrived and look what I found in the box:

 

 

 

This is some kind of led lamp with a speaker, and there is 4 of them.

I alredy send a message to head-director, and I m pretty shure this came all along from china, because inside the box there is the invoice and it says Hifiman HE 500.

Now I m waiting for Head Director s answer. mad.gif

Wow, that's a big screw up.  I hope you will get the problem fixed.

Whew! I was worried you had purchased from someone else and they had shipped that to you (with the possibility it might be a scam). You'll have no issues with head-direct fixing it.
