I don't know the resistance of this cable. How do I check?


so how is midrange compared to senn?

I find the HD600's to be very neutral and realistic sounding. The X1's are on par but are just shy of HD600 mid range clarity. The X1's seem to be ever so slightly dryer/recessed compared to the HD600. HD558's are overly forward for my taste and don't produce that raw tonality from vocals like the HD600's. HD598's sound like they have christmas stockings stuffed inside the ear cups.

I tested the 3ft flat Griffin cable which came out to 0.1-0.2 ohms. While the stock cable came out to 1.6-1.8 ohms. I wasn't expecting the Griffin to get so low considering I randomly just bought it... At Walmart. Amazon has the 6ft one for $10 IIRC. I wonder if it has the same impedance.

Really? Are You sure You measured correctly or Your multimeter battery isn`t empty or something? That is very low impedance.

Sorry, my multimeter is a POS. I moved the cables around and it showed up more this time :\ It's showing 0.4 now. I'll post some pictures later.

All readings were showing up lower before I took pictures. I don't know why they did that. Also, I was getting 1.6-1.8 ohm on the original cable the first time around. Pictures show 2.1 ohms :\. The cable is supposed to be around 1.8 like others stated. So if that's the case, and it's showing more in my pictures but rather 1.8 like others mentioned before pictures, then maybe the Griffin cable is also lower then 0.4 ohms that's showing? The Griffin cable was also reading lower before pictures were taken.
