There are lots of metal parts used to make these hp's. Do you happen to live near the beach? Do you have a salt water fish tank in your room?

Cheapest from Hifiman is $60

 

I've been shopping around but I can't really find a way to replace the cable without spending ~40 bucks. (DIY parts+labor).

 

I'd need a very good tutorial anyway because I've never done it. I figure you need 4 strands of 26 or 28 AWG wire (two for each cup), 2 SMC male, and a 1/8 stereo male plug to do it. But it looks like the 1/8 has to be soldered, and it is tight quarters.

 

I may just order the copper/silver cable. Then again, the cable still works, and I seriously don't feel like spending any more money on the setup.

Yeah I had already ordered an upgraded cable before I even noticed the stock one was splitting. It was clear to me from day 1 that it's shabby, and that sooner or later I'd be buying something else.. so I just pulled the trigger ASAP.
I'll be using Forza Audioworks cables, they should arrive soon wink.gif

Ask Modulor for a cable! He can DIY one for a very fair price unlike most people/companies, and he's very good at it by now.

You might want to get a case for your HE-400 if the moisture in the air is rusting it.

My he400 has a kink / split in one side of the cable as well, is it possible to fix this? Maybe by cutting off the broken bit and then re-terminating the cable? Do you have any tutorials of how to do this?

post #16317 of 17959
Any good recommendations on cables? Looking for the best, affordable cable for my 400s... I already own the stock and 500 cables.

+1 on tutorial. Or a picture of that weird Hifiman connector with where I have to solder the 4 wires... Would be awesome!

Hifiman cables are miles too long imo

Just received mine! They are really great and I'm shure they are the best choice for metal and rock. I'm in LOVE with these headphones!
