Everyone's familiar with the HD800 so I don't need to give it an intro.
I want to upgrade from the K701's - I made a thread about it a fair while ago and it was an argument between the K1000 and the HD800. In the end I had a bad experience with the K1000 seller and kind of fizzled off the idea of buying anything for a while (No, didn't end up purchasing the K1000's after all the fuss, and it wasn't a seller here, it was a fleabay'er)
Anyway, I'm buying the HD800s and need some help with the following:
1. The cables to the earspeakers APPEAR to be detachable, but I can't find any info even on the Sennheiser website if they are or are not? Are they?
2. Do these need a re-cable? If so, copper or silver? Which is better, which is best?
I'm asking because I can buy the HD800's relatively cheap and I want to buy the cable seperate, but obviously I cant (or won't) if the cable needs to be soldered to the can's.. obviously I'll have to hand them over to a professional for that - I know when I'm out of my depth, particularly on such an expensive set of cans :p
