Hey guys. I made a build log (sorta) of the removable cable mod. Have a gander if you like.
Thanks mate! It's so much better now. I can't stand that heavy coiled cable. Also, it could be just my imagination, but the sound seems to be noticeably warmer now.
I'm not 100% sure that a cable changes the sound. Sometimes I hear it sometimes I don't. I have noticed that changing the cables changes the volume noticeably on some mods, but I'm not certain the sound signature actually changes
Was thinking of selling my HI2050's because they are just a tad too small for my large dome and I also just got the EVO 681 which I really like (they are totally different BTW). Last night I listened to a disc by Sara Swenson and after listening to the entire disc without interruption I decided I can't sell these...they are musical have great detail and did a great job on female vocals. Cost vs sound quality are crazy on these
Sometimes... Mostly I use dx1000 or sa5000, pro80 with hm5 pads at night when isolation is required. Ha-s400, hd228 or mh438 with my phone when I listen to music in bed. Mh463, hd681, Digitechs, rp-htf600e-s and hi2050 get occasional headtime. I like to refresh my memory on how those sounded and I do a little comparative listening every now and then with those. It's worth noting that all those are cheap headphones except for dx1000 and sa5000. Some not worth more than 15$.
I like budget headphones and I don't really see much point reselling 20 buck headphones (allthough I have done that also). Shipping fees are a deal killer with cheap stuff... So I rather keep them most of the time. When someone is wondering if he should get hd681 or hi2050 it is nice to be able to help. I have no limit on how many headphones I should own but I don't want expensive headphones gathering dust. Besides dx1000 and sa5000 I can see myself getting only one more expensive headphone at some point. I miss some of the more expensive headphones I've sold, especially hd600 and w1000x but those were just too expensive considering the little headtime those got in the end.
