Yeah but does NAD electronics even sell cables? I don't see how they benefit from telling you not to use cables from other brands...but I just looked in my Viso HP50 package/box and couldn't find anything about that. Maybe I just made it up :P

 

Anyways, these look really short, which is my big gripe with the original HP50 cable: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?campid=5337413452&toolid=10001&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F271103101785%3FssPageName%3DSTRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT%26_trksid%3Dp3984.m1439.l2649

 

What I'd like is a nice 6ft cable with a little headphone jack (3.5mm i think) to big headphone jack (a 1/4 jack?). That way I could just plug it right into my amp and skip the headphone adapter.

This one is quite good, but does require an adapter for 1/4" use.

Hope you're right about those Cables.... I ordered a pair last night!

There's no problem with replacement cables for these, they are just standard jack connections. Use whatever you want!

If you're referring to my post, the information is correct.

I use the same cable with my X1's.

Have owned this headphone for about 3 months now. Felt like posting here now just to say that i'm continously struck by how coherent-sounding these headphones are. Very masterfully designed sound in these headphones here..

I asked the same thing in the Focal Spirit Professional thread, but can anybody who owns the HP50 provide a picture of the earpad opening with a quarter inside it, taken at a straight-on angle?  I'm trying to compare ear-pad opening sizes to see if it would be a right fit for me.  The quarter allows me to have a point of reference that allows me to resize accordingly in photoshop.  Good lighting or flash is preferable so I can see the earpad vs the opening clearly.

thanks, might get it. I guess 3.5mm to 1/4 cables are pretty hard to find these days.

Definitely more so than 3.5 to 3.5, and adapters are very inexpensive.

Btw, has anyone found a nice heaphone hardcase that matches these headphones well?
I would prefer something with a little better protection than the softcase provided.

Thanks

Here you go. The flash on my Note 2 washes everything out, but I *think* there is enough natural light this time of day to suffice.

Are those pads fraying?
