Should the HD 800 factory cable be replaced? - Page 3

post #31 of 40

I cannot recommend enough using a balanced cable with the HD800.  I've opted for the Sennheiser CH800.  The difference was dramatic and astounding. :beyersmile:

What amps? Balanced shouldn't make a difference.

I am using the Auralic taurus Balanced amp MK2

Using the SE output and balanced are almost always going to yield different results, if the amp is meant for balanced output, it'll sound better through balanced. That's a design point of your amp, nothing to do with just getting a balanced cable :).

I switched to black dragon and found it took the edge off of the bright treble and filled the bass out somewhat.
It's pure copper rather than the hybrid stock

It would be nice if we could objectively measure the difference. Sometimes the placebo effect is quite evident given the advertising hype. In the end, of course, what matters most is how satisfied we are with the sound we are getting!

Does anyone offer a right angle on the 1/4" end for an HD800 cable?

There are lots of 6.3mm adapters, the Hosa GPP-273 Right Angle for instance.

Radio Shack carries the adaptor. Or you can go to Amazon and search for 1/4 adaptors.
