No I heard no difference I could be certain of. But I do think it has better build quality than the stock cable. For some the inline remote had problems or could have potential problems in the future that could cause distortion. I also prefered a longer 3m cable.

Thank you! I will buy this cable, just in case.

I will comment how it works when I have all the gear and I burn-in them some hundreds of hours :)

I have those cables also. They are not designed to fit the CAL2 . They are for the connectors with the locking design on Sennheisers, for example the HD558 or Momentums. The link I posted above is the same cable but with the right connector.

Despite the cable is not designed to fit CAL!2 I think it will fit and work well, right? There are people who use this one

Hello! I received the CAL!2 yesterday. I have used them for almost 20 hours now. I find there are lack of bass, it's not powerful. Is it normal?

It depends on what you're used to. I don't find them to lack bass, quite the opposite for me. Try eq a bit and see

try running a few of the tests on this page:

 

TESTS http://www.audiocheck.net/soundtests_headphones.php

 

Super low stuff like 20-30hz may be lower in volume but higher tones 100-200 will be easily heard and loud on a working CAL2.

 

I just tested and all low tones were easily heard with the 10-200hz test.

Thank you both for your replies. I don't know if I received a bad pair of hearphones.I never used headphones with exaggerated bass, so I can't tell if they really lack bass. I saw videos on YouTube where people put a paper between the headphones and the paper starts to vibrate, a lot

Like this, but I know this is a "basshead" headphones, so it's so exaggerated: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGzJ6wq4CfI

Can you tell me, please, if CAL!2 vibrate? I put my hands on them and I can barely feel nothing. Just a very very little, but I don't call it a vibration. With that information I will be able to know if they are a bad pair...

You can hear with your own ears if they have enough bass for you or not. I can't tell you if its enough bass for you, it's a personal thing. Do the cans sound totally off, like there's hardly any bass? If that's the case then something is wrong. 

 

I'm not sure if the CAL2s vibrate but my HE500s which although aren't basshead, present bass very well, they don't vibrate (much) at my normal listening levels. I don't believe the CAL2 has less bass quanity than the HE500s

I won't even comment on how stupid I think that video is,  oopps, I guess I just did.

 

As spurxii said, use your ears

post #476 of 478

Well guys, I didn't say anything about the video, so you don't need to comment anything about it.

I just wanted to know if I received a bad pairs or not. My CAL!2 doesn't vibrate and I can't use my ears because these are my first "good" headphones and I don't know how them should sound. I repeat, all I want to know if they vibrate or not.

Just to humour myself, I wacked a paper on the CAL2 just like they did on that video. I played a bassy tune and turned the amp up to 80/100. The CAL2 vibrate woohoo. But I also did the same thing on my HD800s and lol and behold, it too vibrated the same as the video. Mind you the HD800s is not known as a bass can. Quite the opposite actually

Also just becuase it vibrates paper doesnt mean the bass doesnt sound like muddy crap! Ive seen people do the same paper test with subwoofers, its silly. A better test is to actually listen to a bassy instrument such as a bass or a timpani, or bass guitar played at thier lower ranges. And see if you can get your desired bass repsonse while the instruments still keep it's original sound characteristics. For example you should still hear the distinct "pluck" of a bass string followed by its vibration rather than a dull unidentifiable "thump".
