Sennsheiser HD-598 headphone cable locking connector questions....

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I got my HD-598 the other day after reading all the rave reviews here and I am very happy that I did.

 

The only thing I would want to change about the HD-598 is the cable.

 

The stock cable is nice but it's way too long for my application and I am looking for options to change it out.

 

I want to build a new cable that will plug into the headphone without doing a complete re-cabling described in the re-cable threads here in Headfi.

 

My question is that is there any place where I can buy a blank (solder-on) connector that is the same as the stock connector that locks into the left side headphone?

 

I like to keep things stock so this will be the cleanest way to get a new cable on my HD-598.

 

I am also open to cutting a spare original cable and make my own cable using the stock locking plug.

 

So, question #2 is if the stock cable is available for sale as a spare part?

 

Thanks in advance for any info on this!

Just got off the phone with Sennheiser and found out that the original cable for the HD-598 is available for $10 so that's my plan B.

 

I still want to make a clean new cable with a new solder on connector but now at the very least I know I can make one with some soldering and shrink tube.
