Hello Head-Fi; I am looking to use my HD598 for snowboarding but the stock cable that comes with it is too long and has a chunky 6.3mm to 3.5mm adapter. In addition the cable has no volume control which is a must since I don't want to bother people with my music on the chair lifts. So I was looking to get a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter and plugging that into a inline potentiometer without degrading audio quality. Prior experiences with a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter led to mono output and less than desired audio quality. So help me Head-Fi to search for quality components and rep Senns on the mountain because there are too many people using Dre Beats and Skullcandies.
