We all wish that the cable cost less but what can we do ? lol.

 

 

Sell your current Sennheiser headphone and buy something else? Food for thought.

Nah, I love HD800 more than any headphones that I tried so far (Except SR009 and LCD3), HD800 is a keeper. smily_headphones1.gif

True, was going to sell mine, but with right amp ( HPA-21 or CMA800R) those are excellent. And they're oh so comfy.

Very soon we will soon be seeing just headphones in a box. Need to plug them in?

Oh wait that will be an extra $500 for your $2k headphones just like DLC in video games. Why give the full product when you can give half and still charge full price and the suckers lap it up.

Whatever the market will bear, I suppose. But then I wouldn't spend $1500 on headphones, either. Or even half that.

I love mine too, but I wouldn't say I'm married to the Sennheiser brand either. I'd swap them out for something better in a heartbeat.

 

Shame HD800 is so damn comfortable compared to the planar headphones, the achilles heel of the Audeze headphones is their fit. Even the Hifimans aren't close in straight up comfort, although much better than LCD's.

I really wonder if insanely priced after-market cable worth to buy, 

 

For example, HD800 with Double Helix (DHC "Spore" Ultimate Headphone Cable) which starts at $2500 before the length upgrade.

That will put around $4000-$5000 range for the HD800 + DH cable.  That`s the same price as Stax SR009 !!!

 

Oh wait, I forget, DHC "Spore M" Modular, MSRP of $15,000. yes $15,000.

 

So let`s stay on the positive side guys, with respect to DH cable prices, I think Sennheiser Factory cables are worth it IMNSSO. lol.

I get the sarcastic humor, but these prices are simply insane.:veryevil:

^ you win the thread

Some unboxed pics.  Build quality is very high, like the stock cables.  Can't wait to spend some time with them on the HDVD 800 and Oppo HA1 (also has balanced XLR).

I smiled with confusion when I read "Build quality is very high, like the stock cables". :bigsmile_face:

But I trust you that it is HQ

Good grief.  The connectors look nice, but the pricing is a joke.  I had assumed Sennheiser was finally going to bulk manufacturer good quality, reasonably affordable 4 pin xlr hd800 cables.  Instead, this is $50 more than a 10ft. balanced cable from DHC!
