Oh man would this cable transform these headphones for me untill i can upgrade to the 650s, i hate the cable on the 518s its a stupid selling point for a medium class open back headphone, it might be decent if these were good for DJing but there not.
Just found a nice cable on Ebay, they have this cable in 1.2m, 1.5 and 1.8, i got the 1.8 so i still had some room to move away from my laptop or phone if needed and it only costed $24 to ship to Australia which is awesome, normally around $50 shipping for other things like headphones.
