It is just 1.5ft which is fairly shirt but It is enough length to hook up to your external sources.
The Sonys are very nice. I am loving how they sound. Sounds fantastic with the Ele dac too. I haven't tried the HA-S500 yet on the ELe, but I will soon and make a little post on the HA-S500 thread. Everyone gotta try out this DAC.. As shocking as this sounds. The sound from this little DAC is not too far removed from even my Fire Phoenix...Lol.
These MDR-1Rs are like a full sized version of my favorite iem. XBA-3. Nice stage for closed can. Great passive isolation..Nicely detailed highs mids and lows..It also has a full rich complete sound to it. Here is a bit of a surprise for you guys. So which headphone you guys think Jude prefers out of the recent batch of new headphone that has come out..From the M-100s, Sennheiser Momentums, UE6000 and the Sony MDR-1R.
He kinda dropped a little bomb shell in the MDR-1R thread that he prefers these MDR-1Rs. Now I see why.
Cool thanks, WoW that cable was $100 MSRP. LoL It seems like the same type of USB cables printers uses to hook up to the PC, will that also work??? LMAO
Yeah have been keeping track of most of the headphones threads you mentioned, the Sennheisers Momentums seems like the weakest of the punch for their price. From what i have read their sound is worth about $200-250 but they are asking for a crazy $350 for them. The M-100 is a bit overpriced for mostly bass oriented can as well. $200 to $250 would have been a great price for the M100s. So these sony 1Rs and UE6000s are really great deals for not just their cheaper price but great sound quality as well. Their sound punch wayyy higher than their retail price it seems. Also keep an eye out for the new AKG 167s, on man these seem to be another of those value kings for the crazy nice sound you get. But damn you AKG for not making the cable detachable for this $200 can, really, really? LoL That's what I hate about this brand sometimes, they never learn.
But my S500s sound so good right now, I am not even tempted to "upgrade" whatsoever. LoL But those AKG 167s might be my downfall eventually. haha
