Best Aftermarket Cable for the Sennheiser HD 650 - Page 2

post #16 of 24

 I do not hear a lot about the Zu Mobius Mk.II but I really like it. It has a low noise sheathing, aluminum connector body's, with press-sinter Elkonite copper pins, solder-free coldforged pin termination's. It is lighter than the first version, tougher, flexible, less microphonic. Blaa Blaa.. More detail's on the web site.


 The bass on my 650's went from wooly to tight and way better definition. I was wondering if the 650's could do better than one note bass..They can, and overall the timbre and texture now sound more natural, with greater resolution over the stock cable. The bass is fast when called for and the high's extend out nicely. I just upgraded my equipment and I hear even more details with this cable. For me, it just sound's like the right cable for the HD650's and I'm satisfied. If I were not then Zu has a 60 day return policy. Oh yeah, it's American made at that.   Web site at Zu Audio for more detail's.


I recently had this silver over copper cable terminated for my Audeze LCD-3's. I loved it from the beginning and It is my most detailed cable. It has all the benefits of both metals and sounds very balanced. I think the guy's at Zu have the formula just right. Most notable are the extended high's and punchy well defined bass. Also, the resolution of this cable is very good. I'm a bit of a cable freak and still like to try other cables. But I can not find any fault in this one. I have not spent $600 + yet; but I can say I really think the Mobius is worth it's cost.

As long as your cables are copper, the only thing you may hear is more/less transparency.  Stay away from silver or a mix.

For the HD650's it has to be silver, copper would just be more of the same because the stock cable is copper.


When I have my HD650's a few years ago I tried the copper equinox cable and the Moon Audio Silver Dragon Mkii.

The Equinox made very little difference but the Silver Dragon was a significant improvement.


Toxic cables are excellent in all areas, build quality, sound quality etc and would be my recommendation ( I have 3 myself ) but have a very long wait time of about 20 weeks!!

Toxic do not have a return policy, unless faulty, but due to the wait times you would esily sell it at near new price.

I took a gamble on a set of cyro treated 14gauge copper braided cables with a Furutech TRS plug from ALO Audio.  Very happy with these.  It's a more subtle upgrade than upgrading your DAC or amp but it is noticeably better than stock.
