What experiences can anyone report on using a copper cable with the Amperior e.g. HD600/650/250/25sp cable. I use HD250 cable on my HD25-1s (prefer sound to HD650 cable or stock steel).

 

Best

Haven't seen any for sale yet in the UK...I asked Toxic Cables if they have plans to do anything for them, but nothing at the moment.

The akg 551 look good and I like that they have in line controls. Which would be better the 551's or the momentums? And do the 551's have a carrying case?

Question about the Momentum Carrying case: 

 

When you put the Momentum back in the case, do you have to readjust the headband every time or can you put them away and will they stay adjusted to your head size? Do they fit adjusted? 

 

Can anyone post a pick of the case next to an ipad, or some other well known object? I'm trying to get a sense of size and dimensions for the case if I toss it into my backpack. 

 

Thanks!

The case is fairly large but not excessively so in my opinion. 

About the headphones, you do need to adjust them in order to fit them in the case, yes.

Thanks a ton! The case is small than I feared, but that seems bad news to have to readjust every time. Does it seem like that adjusting mechanism will wear out over time? They just slide right? It's not a screw/tightening knob, is it?

Actually I do feel that I don't want to keep readjusting them too forcefully in case of wearing out the slider (yes, they slide). But that may just be the "new-toy" syndrome ;)

I've looked more into the akg 551 that have some bad reviews. I'm changing my mind a little bit. I'm looking for headphone are portable (similar to beats by Dre studios), have good sound quality and preferably have in line controls. The price range should be around 300$ and the headphones are mostly for use in the car. BTW I would like good nose isolation

I've heard the headphones with inline controls have lowered sound quality so the controls arent needed but preferred

Razor-accurate percussion instigates head-bobbing. Soaring mids and trebles get you closer to the original studio mix. Full-bodied bass lines are effortlessly lifted out of the mud and placed deep within your conscious. This is what it was like to be there when the song was finished. This is what it is like to be Sennheiser.

The first thing you see when you open the box is the tag line: "Inspired by DJ's - Designed for the streets."  Makes their intentions pretty clear to me.

That's the same card foubd inside the Amperior box as well.

Only if the 4-contact-plug does not fit your jack correctly...
