Are the DT250 cables fully replaceable with DT150/100 cables, as the images seem the same but have a different name on the beyer website. I say this because I'd love the 1.5m straight cables on ebay for the DT150's on the 250's, and was wondering if anyone was knowledgeable on the situation, as I've had no help googling the matter.

I'm sorry... but it does NOT fit.
DT 250's plug has more pins.
Seriously Beyer, what the...?
Besides that, DT 250 is a completely under-rated headphone.
It is so neutral but also so musical. Easily one of my absolute favourite HP.
I saw a television report last week on a Deutsche Grammophon recording in Vienna (with french pianist P.-L. Aimard).
The two sound engineers were using the DT 250...

There is a k190 series cable for DT200 series, including DT250 and DT290.
I get one 1.5m cable from amazon for 34 dollars but it is not terminated(terminated ones are for broadcasting use with XLR connectors), so i terminated it with a 3.5mm jack myself. One thing you need to know is that the cable and 7 pin connector is bulky and stiff because the cable also includes three more wires that are for microphone on dt290.
If you are good at soldering, you can also buy the 7 pin plug only and solder your own cable (cardas ,magomi or other upgrade cables.)
Actually, only four pins are used no matter it is DT150 or DT250. I am also wondering if we can just cut off the additional pins and make the connector interchangable for DT150 and DT250, since they don't have microphone.
