Cable that brings out the best in the SUPERLUX HD668B budget earphones ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Can anyone suggest a cable with the small plug that brings out the best in the SUPERLUX HD668B ?

My friend is looking to pair it with JDS Labs altoid box to get a good sound out of it, but I'm sure at that price the existing headphone cable (1m or 3M) will be the weak link.

I know the velour tissue stuffed earpads is a good upgrade also.

 

Would a cable going into the one-side port be enough or would it have to go all the way to each earphone ?

 

If you know of a cable, do you have a link to buy it please (ebay or forum etc) ?

To give you an analogy, it would be like using racing tires on a compact car. Save your money and time

Doesn't need an amplifier.

 

Doesn't benefit from a cable.

 

Does benefit from velour pads.

 

With your now saved money, buy music instead to actually listen to.

 

Very best,

Well said. The next best thing after pads is eq to tame the highs.

I can suggest a cable I just bought from Dyson Audio which really cleared things up top to bottom. Very nice price as well.
