Using a different sennheiser cable with HD 280 pros

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hopefully I'm posting this in the right spot.

 

Anyway, I have a pair of Sennheiser HD 280 pros which I am very pleased with. Unfortunately I ran over the headphone jack with my wheely chair and now need a replacement. I have always found the absurdly long HD 280 cord to be a nuisance and was wondering if other shorter sennheiser cord are compatible with the HD 280's because a shorter cord would be much easier to deal with.

Any 3-conductor or 4-conductor cable will do.  HD280's stock cable is 4-conductor, but you can always join the grounds inside of the left cup where they connect to the cable if you choose a 3-conductor cable.

 

Soldering required in any event.
