My pleasure!  I wasn't familiar with the authorities Tyll referenced, but conceptually, the discussion struck me as being right on.  Is this the book by Toole that you were referencing?  http://www.amazon.com/Sound-Reproduction-Acoustics-Psychoacoustics-Loudspeakers/dp/0240520092

Please cite some concrete sources if you aren't intentionally trolling at this point.  You suggested that we "go ask the manufacturers," so I will refer you to the explanation by PJ at Bottlehead in post 9 of this thread: http://www.bottlehead.com/smf/index.php?topic=2362.0  You might also google and read the wiki articles on balanced lines, balanced audio and push pull amplifiers.

I was thinking of getting the Yulong but am afraid i might lust after the WA2 once i've gotten it. problem is the WA2 is slightly overpriced where i live. But if it can stop me from constant upgrading that could be a plus!

Guys, I've deleted three or so pages of posts from this thread. 

 

Please remember that: 

  • Posts not on topic are a waste of peoples' time. Replying to off-topic posts are even worse.
  • Posts with just question marks, smileys and meaningless nonsense are a waste of a post. People come here to read about the topic, not read pages and pages of rubbish.
  • Moderators that don't feel so generous in giving their (free and unpaid) time to clean up after people who don't follow the Posting Guidelines often just lock threads without warning. Consider this before making a post of the type I just mentioned above.
  • Replying to public moderator warnings about the rules (such as this one) with further discussion of them or making further off-topic posts is a good way to get locked out of a thread.

:smile:

Problem - Pulling out the calbe

 

Hello, i have a small problem with my HD 800's. I have heard that the cables should come really easy out just by pulling the metal thing straight out of the headphones. But it doesn't seem to come no matter what??? I have tried to pull a little hard (to the point i don't want actually, because of i'm scared of damaging the headphones) but it won't come out? 

Is there a special technique were you have to twist it or anything?? I really don't want to use much force, as don't wish to damage them in any way.

So is it normal that it is difficult to unplug the cables, or is there something wrong :confused:

Mine came out kinda hard the first time.  They were really in there.  After the first few time it loosened up a bit.

Was a little nerve racking.  Just make sure you are pulling on the connector straight.  I also find that if you giggle/twist it axially while pulling (like rolling it between you fingers), it helps to get it out.

Damn man.. It just won't happen. I guess i will have to wait to a hi-fi meet or something were i can get some assistance.

post #6254 of 17736
