Cable looks great, it might be worth trying a hair drier on the wrap to see if it has any more shrink in it.

 

Have your wife's headphones been burned-in? I'm sorely tempted to spend £45 as I'm not that keen in the stock cables anyway. Will be interesting to see how they compare at themeet regardless.

Yes they're burned in - about a month of use. I'll need to try it with the other stock cable from my headphones and see if it might be a cable issue. However regardless of that, I like this cable and the shorter length.

Btw, Amperiors are being withdrawn from sale soon, so anyone looking to get a pair, best do so soon...

Why?
post #155 of 795
Sales haven't been as good as they expected I imagine.
post #156 of 795

They're no longer available at the apple store (online).

Yep, it's why I bought a second pair.
post #158 of 795
Really?! Does anyone have any details regarding when they'll be phased out? Worth buying now as an investment?
post #159 of 795

Not sure on dates, but definitely happening...I'd hope that they incorporate the aluminium cups into the HD25 II's. I'm also expecting that there will be some special edition models before they go.

No! No more Amperiors? Damn you, mass market consumers for not buying Sennheiser! 

Sub'd anyway :D

post #161 of 795

Maybe the Amperior is the send off for the HD-25?  Either way.  If I had the chance to buy them I certainly would.  They have generally proved to be an excellent pair of cans so far, and I expect to use them until I wear away the anodized finish on the ear cups... and then some.  Just need to secure a replacement extender cable due to the stock one breaking.

I was offered a limited edition day night box set which includes the hd25 and amperiors. He was asking £500. Worth it?

why both of them just get what you exactly need? amperior or hd25? anyway if you think it is what you need, seems to me a not a bad deal if you are interested in limited editions.

Hi mate
I suppose they are quite iconic and would have been a nice collectors piece particularly now that the amperior will be discontinued. Seems like these day night editions are quite rare as well?
post #165 of 795

Appearantly yes. Honestly, I wouldn't pay extra for limited edition or other funcy things as long as they don't improve SQ. But some people like it and I do understand it, if you like it too, go for it really both are wonderful cans. My only point is, they are more or less the same stuff, you can always get an aftermarket cable for these world known most seller headphones. Construction is pretty much same except the cups and people say amperior has a big advantage cuz of the cups. I would only get 1 of them actually. Nevertheless if you like it and also thinking about collections too, go for them I would say. If I had money to spare I would like to have them both too smily_headphones1.gif
