Sennheiser HD 598 2.5 mm locking plug?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Anyone know if this locking 2.5 mm plug is available for purchase? Is it a proprietary type lock, or can I find the plugs at suppliers?

I have cables & 3.5mm connector & want to recable my 598's.

 

Thanks,

kev

I know you can buy cables for the 598 for a good price on ebay. A headfier posted a few pictures and it looked really nice.

Pre-made cable (1.2m to 1.8m) with the 3.5mm plug, for the HD5XX series headphones.

Thanks guys. I saw that posting about the cables. That's what made me wonder if the plugs are available by themselves. I did go ahead & order the one from China, but still want to make my own with some very good wire that I am not using. 

 

Thanks,

When you get the one from China, just cut off the 2.5mm plug and attach it to your custom cable.

I may do that if I am able to open the connector. I prefer not do a splice job, so it depends on the connector. BTW I had a brief email communication with the seller & he is very responsive & sincerely wants to provide good service. That is very refreshing when ordering from China. The communication was in regards to changing my order & I did not inquire about the connectors. If I like the connector/cable that I receive, I may check back with the seller.

Cheers,

hi all

 

I've ordered this one (the very first, called "black") this morning for my Momentum. Just have to wait a couple of weeks now.

The seller is really nice. I've asked for 5 pièces: 13$; shipping costs included!

 

I re-enter the direct link (dunno where it went...)

Sorry, have not seen it's a so old thread ... :ksc75smile:
