Replacement cable for V-MODA M100

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I'm not a real fan of the V-MODA's standard cables.  I prefer something a bit more flexible, with a bit of a rubbery feel.

 

Anyway, I'm looking for a replacement, something along the lines around 1m (3 feet) long, male to male 3.5mm cable.  I would make up my own, but in order for the cable to fit the headphones, the jack casing can be no wider than 6mm, which makes putting together custom ones quite difficult.

 

Does anyone know of any over-the-counter cables that might do what I'm after?

 

Cheers.

 

PS: Not really fussed about having a mic, or controls on the cable itself, as I usually run the audio through an AMP.

C´mon, bump! Don´t bury all those juicy cable choices in the main m-100 thread, it´s 800-pages long.

 

These are recommended by the company itself: http://www.moon-audio.com/moon-audio-blue-dragon-headphone-cable.html

 

Price is laughable, really, and the blue colour is garish, but the sound description looks like it brings what the m-100s are missing. The vocals forward. Without bass reduction they tend to swallow some luster from the vocal timber.

Here's a list of working cables that I've personally tested:

 

Radio Shack Auvio cables

Beats cables (all versions)

B&O H6 Cable (Buttons and mic iOS compatible)

 

I also found some no name cables at a clothing store in my neighborhood in Brooklyn that fit. If you have your M-100 while you're out, just check and see if any random cables you come across have a plug housing that's as thin or thinner than your V-MODA cable.

That's awesome...I'm glad they show different lengths available.  I commonly use a bluetooth device as the actual source of my music, so for my 598's I had a guy make me up a very short cable.  He kept asking me if I was sure I wanted one as short as I asked, but he made it and it was perfect.

 

Maybe that seller could make me up the length I'd want (if I remember correctly, it was something like 9 inches...since I wear that device on my shirt collar.  I might be picking up the m100's this week, if I do I'll be sure to send that seller a message!

Besides the Moon-audio options which I am reluctant to pay more than my headphones had costed for a non-detachable cord to be implemented in to my cans, but want to be able to have a cord run to both earcups. I reached V-Moda support who would not provide a cord able to purchase, but advised having a wire run to each cup will lower resistance on the speakers, which will provide slightly better quality.

 

Anyone have any ideas I looked at the Denon AH-D600/700 replacements you can find on amazon/ebay that will fit, but they are 1 pole, does anyone know if they would work on these as everything with the V-moda's is usually a 3 pole tap.
