HD 650 cable broken on one side? way to fix?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Ok so its a standard sennheiser hd 650 cable and i was gone for like 2 minutes and come back and it doesnt work on one side, i have concluded by testing the left cable in both cans that the fault is indeed in the right cable.

 

has anyone ever attempted fixing these or should i just buy a new one or an aftermarket cable?

i definately dont want the new cable to end up the same and if it did i would probably sell the headphones...

 

BTW i think the fault isnt in the jack plug its in the plugs from the headpone but since the standard cable has a moulded plastic frame i cant get to it without destroying it.

Take a few pictures of the plug. If there is a problem with the plug, you can send it to a cable fixer of Head-Fi, or buy a new cable.

Just buy some Mogami cable for $1 a foot and find the connectors you need to make your own (shouldn't be hard). Making cables is very easy, head down to the DIY section of the forums for some inspiration (it is way at the bottom of the main forum page).

You can ask if someone want to sell their original cables if they have their HD650 recabled, just try out ur luck in the forum

i just bought an aftermarket cable, its expensive but it should be worth it if the stock cables are this rubbish.

Mogami cable is a great budget choice, this one already sounds much better than the original one. hopes you enjoy!

I've always like the HD650 Zu cable, very nicely made cable

Did you ever get your cable from compicatx? How did you like it?

 

Thanks,

Sennheiser USA will sell you a new cable for $12 or so. Just order a new one.
