post #496 of 810

How do you guys carry your Amperiors around? Awhile back I asked Sennheiser about a case and they had mentioned trying to find a camera bag. I use my Amperiors at work connected to a HiSoundAudio Studio V 3rd Anniversary and they just stay at my desk. Right now when taking them to work I have them enclosed in the bubble wrap bag(they were refurbs) that they can in, inside my backpack. My question is how do you guys transport them when not in use?

Hang em from the rear view mirror when I'm driving, and wear em around my neck the rest of the time.

Regarding recabling the Amperiors:

 

Does anyone know what the part # is for that little piece on the headband through which the cables run and that holds the earcup on? 

 

I want to flip the cups and try another cable (hanging down from both ears) so need that part to do so.  Having no idea what it would be called, I can't find it in the Sennheiser part catalog.  

 

Thanks.

Not sure about the part number but I think you are referring to this cable clamp.

Bingo!  That's exactly what I was looking for.  Thanks a million.

I have been wondering if "discontinued" also means no more spare parts? Not that I see it breaking anytime soon but you know.... The only thing I see that might go wrong eventually is where the cable meets that groove in the headband, like that corner. I find the headset cable quite useful.

 

The amperiors are always a suprise on clarity when coming back from any laid back set. I think the forward engaging sound is what you want on the go. I do fancy a pair of momentums though for more soundstage.

 

concerning a case I think the momentum on-ear version of the case would fit the amperiors, the hd25 aluminium also has that case I think.

I wouldn't worry about spare parts.  It seems like all the HD-25 stuff will work with it :biggrin:

Not sure if its been covered here but I just ordered the blue colored ones; is the aluminum anodized or painted? if they are anodized I might just throw them in a coffee can with some oven cleaner removing the blue color and bring them to silver & then polish and clear spray them. 

 

I emailed Sennheiser but I figured someone here might know as well.

No worries! Enjoy, I loved my Amperiors before selling them, they're probably the pair I'll miss the most haha.

post #509 of 810

Agreed. Looks way better and feels way better. I don't think a shortened stock cable can be bought through any shops. Had mine DIY-ed by member warrior05 but that was years ago. If you're a little handy with a soldering iron you can build one yourself. Had it been me I would start searching or asking around in the DIY forum or even the Cables, Speakers, Tweaks, Accessories forum.

Pretty much that. I do carry them in a thin nylon-like bag inside my backpack to prevent unnecessary crap like whatever food or drinks may spill. A small effort.
