I cannot seem to unplug the cable from the headphones. Is there something particular I need to do?

 

Be careful not to pull the actual cable.  You want to grab the connector.

If the above mentioned website (previous post) doesn't cut it try this.  Follow this link,  fill out appropriate info, click continue, fill out more info then scroll down and tick the box requesting a frequency graph.  Takes approx. 3 - 5 days by email to receive   http://en-de.sennheiser.com/service-support-services-register-your-product

The vertical resolution scale is so wide that the frequency graph is useless IMO.

I'd agree with this too. It's more of a personal certificate for your serial number. I would recommend anyone just taking a look at the Headroom graph for any kind of frequency reference.

Hi all,

Is it worth spending the money for a Cardas cable?
post #10447 of 24301

I've tried a Cardas cable and personally could not tell the difference. Others might give a different answer.

I don't have the 800s, but the Cardas cable made a small yet noticeable difference for my 650s. This is coming from a guy that doesn't put that much stock in cable swapping.
post #10449 of 24301

I tried, ALO coppers, and no differences. I even tried the Balanced ALO cables, no differences.

That was like a year ago, I started to think this whole after market cabling is a scam or another way to promote their products.

 

But this is just me, your opinion/(YMMV) may vary, try if you can pass the blind test between the stock cable and after market cables.

I have to add this,

 

but after market cables look nicer :)

The cardas cable is very good, certainly one of the best, but I personally don't think it's quite worth the price.

 

If you are able to build something yourself with either a mogami or canare you will get the same sound quality but at a much lower price.

 

But if building something yourself is out of the question you can also scan the second hand market and ebay for good deals.

 

In my opinion the biggest difference comes from getting rid of the copper/silver cable that is the stock cable, and replacing it with something that is pure copper. The brand of the pure copper cable is not so significant.

 

DHC, toxic cables, ALOaudio, moon, stefan aa.... they all make good cables.

 

It's not a major change and depending on your rig and music style you may or may not think it was worth it. But I was very happy with my change, it was the last 1-2% I was looking for.

Some audio buys are pride of ownership. In this they perform fantastic hahaha. I think going from copper to silver does make a difference and some more than others.
It is not something that will wow you as soon as you put them on but over time it changes . Now this could be power of your purchase suggestion. But in the end maybe not worth what some spend , but is to others . Now in speakers rigs it matters more. And in digital cables it is a absolute needed item to experiment with .

Digital cables do not need experimenting with. They either work or they don't. Also why does it matter in speaker rigs ?
post #10454 of 24301
I know I sound like all the jerks I hated till I heard what they did. My first experience was with a AES cable . What I difference when I found a good one. Another is a spidif coax. If you think it's not worth is try a good . Not a 500 one either , but one from empirical audio . The same for HDMI or USB. I know it's digital and just bites. The thing is audio timing is every thing as well any noise . So yes all the bites do get the but with noise or very small delays that we hear .
Now speakers is different here the sounds all seem the same but with changing the wires it effects the tone . Some make it Brite some make it thin. I know I am ass ,,,, but it is true. It is not dramatic but it does become apparent inc a short time .
