Why don't more headphones have replaceable cables? - Page 3

post #31 of 37

I've yet to have a headphone with a detatchable cable, but definitely would love one for drumming... My hd280s always get caught on my kit, not necessarily harful but annoying, a shorter cable would be so nice.

The Beyerdynamic DT100 have a detachable cable, ive heard of people using these for drumming in the past.

For portable headphones I definitely prefer having detachable cables. I love the AiAiAi TMA-1's design. It's a simple, very common 3.5mm to 3.5mm non locking cable, so you don't have to buy a fancy expensive replacement cable when pretty much anything will do. It's also very useful for use with speakers in a pinch. I had to connect my laptop and TV and used the TMA-1 cable for sound as I didn't have anything else. I really wish other headphone manufacturers would do the same.

 

For desktop headphones, I don't mind as much if the cable isn't detachable because I don't really beat up my desktop phones, which is why I didn't mind the AD900 not having a detachable cable. Plus, if they do break I wouldn't mind opening them up and soldering a new cable on anyways.

Yup, I love the cable setup on the TMA-1's. Its just one more reason that this is a great headphone. Surely an awesome headphone well worth $160.

But that's me.

 

Put them up higher or in a drawer away. My entire house was cleared out when my dog was a puppy.

 

 

HD518 btw

 

Keep in mind that my dog is very large (when she stands she is a normal person's height) even as a puppy and can open drawers (and does).  Since then she has successfully killed my DT-770s, my Sennheiser 238s, and the px100s.  Since then I've been exclusively using IEMs since for whatever reason she doesn't seem to like them but even with this my new push has been to stick to IEMs with removable cables.

 

At any rate, I don't really blame her and basically knew what I was in for when I adopted a puppy.

I have a pair of T1's and I am considering having them re terminated with connectors to use detachable cables. What are the downsides of doing this?
