Hm, i see other people are having problems with the cable as well. My L connector is dropping too, but only in certain positions. I'm thinking of either just buying a new cable or trying to send mine in, though i don't know how long the warranty is when you get it from headamp. 

post #14687 of 18056

Headamp warranty should be the same as Hifiman. And Hifiman extended the warranty to three years, IIRC.

Who makes a reasonably priced quality replacement cable for the HE400?

From my brief listening I've found that their clarity CAN work really well for certain music. Even without EQ. Anyhoo, in search of brightness tackle I've ordered a set of Sennheiser foams. They're about 7.5cm and should about cover the driver leaving enough room to still attach the rings. In theory.. :)

Don't know their quality but there are a few on Ebay that are made and shipped from USA.

How long have you had it? Usually within 30 days = seller, longer = manufacturer

Now i just don't know

Definitely contact hifiman. After 30 days 99% of retailers are not who you contact for warranty.

Are you sure HifiMan has a three year warranty? I just looked on www.head-direct.com and it says one year warranty.

People started getting cards that said three years from Hifiman. It would be pretty disingenuous of them to start including those for some but not all.

Bought mine from Moon Audio, I'll send them an email tomorrow asking about warranty.

I changed my cable for a "Forza Audio Works" cable (the cheapest version) about 1 Meter long. It was rather expensive and actually the 3.5 mm jack is a bit too fat, and has damaged my Fiio E17 headphone jack to a certain extent.

This cable costed me 257 PLN (around 85 dollars), while a guy at a shop made me a great RCA to 3.5 mm Jack cable for 90 PLN (30 dollars).

 

Im quite sure, as long as you get the hifiman screw ins, you can get a rather cheap and good cable.

For me the canare cable was simply something i did not want to handle, not to mention i like to take the HE-400 on my way to work.

Long stif cables must be almost constantly monitored so you dont damage them, and while i "could" keep that in mind for some time, id eventually forget (and im sure when i Live with someone they would forget even sooner).

So i just got a 3 meter 5 dollar 3.5 mm extender, and no, I notice no difference from those cables.

 

On the silver vs copper, Im assuming you will find many advocates of both sides :D.
