Works for some tracks better then others.

Akcent - Jokero sounded "off" and wrong imo.

But T-Pain - 5 o clock in the morning sounded better with it on.

I'll keep it around, thanks.

From what I've heard and read, coax and s/pdif are better suited to tranfer audio data than 2.0 USB. USB can has a higher propensity to lose quality if data sychronization is restricted. That's why a lot of good DACs allow asychronous transfer so the data inflow isn't limited to a certain speed. Coax and s/pdif carry audio-only information, thus having better isolation from PC noise.

I might give it a try later then. FiiO has a very nice looking L12 cable for that purpose.

 

On an unrelated note, the HiFiMAN velour pads are a dust magnet, unlike my Sennheiser ones.

Thanks for the feedback. What parts sounded wrong, the vocals or the overall sound?

 

It's definitely still a work in progress. I was planning on doing some more testing with it tonight.

Gonna have to contact Head-Direct. It seems the drivers are mismatched in the frequencies. Definitely getting more bass on the right driver. No matter how I slice it, it's obvious. Whether I flip (right driver on the left ear), swap cables... right driver is always more impactful. Sigh.... damn it, I don't wanna be without them for weeks on end.

Thanks!  BTW, what cable did you end up using for this?  And does the Paracord expand to accept different diameter cables in your experience?

Hey there, he and I have exchanged several PMs about this. We're thinking this would actually fit the cable better and I think we're both going to try it. This seller has other sizes as well like 4mm for the two leads to the earcups. Keep in mind we're not really sure how this product will feel/look yet. He used Mogami 2893 cable.

The 6mm might fit the Mogami 2534 better since that cable overall diameter is .236", whereas the Mogami 2893 is .189", in which the 4mm would be a great fit.  Did he use different size Mogami cable for the earcup leads vs the TRS connector lead (main cable)?

 

Have you taken a look or had any experience with this:  http://www.techflex.com/prod_pet.asp

 

This comes in several colors and a good number of sizes.

I just ordered the Canare L-4E5AT and the 6mm sleeve (and 4 mm sleeve). I'm not even really sure how well it will fit. I figure this stuff is fairly trial and error. I mostly concerned this sleeving will be too "plastic-y."

 

I believe he used the same cable all the way up but he used 3mm paracord (the 'denim' color) on the leads.

If anyone is interested in an HD600 headband cushion to use with their HE-400's, i have one unopened that i will send to someone for free. I've decided that i'm going to be sending back my 400's so i'll have no use for this, first person to send me their info can have it.
