i need cable recommendations for my shure 425's

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

so im definitly new to audiophile stuff.  i could use some help in defining the kind of sound i enjoy and maybe some cables or upgrades i can  do to enhance sound.

 

i dont even know what it could cost, but to me, the shure 425 headphones are high end.

 

i like to listen to some contemporary christian... anything from worship to stellar kart and relient k.  i also enjoy DMB and mumford and sons.... 

 

i dont care for too much bass, but i want to be able to hear it all.  idk what to ask myself to figure out what kind of sound i like....

 

 

---- now to cables, should i just keep my cables, go with some replacement ue900 cables, or invest in some decent $100 cables or go all out and buy the piccalo or whatever cables people talk about... jk i wont do that yet

 

 

and finally, what are some other things i can do to enhance sound... i have a galaxy s4 and apple products for music. i like to be portable.

You can start converting all your music to lossless (flac or alac), which on the phone you will need different software to play the files.  If you're looking for a good quality cable that is fairly inexpensive, I might try the silver-plated copper from the headphone lounge.  I think that would pair with the SE425's well, and I believe it is less than $100.  Just my 0.02 ;)

You can,  but you won't gain anything. You have to rip the cd in flac, or download from somewhere that sells lossless
