Sennheiser HD215 Straight wire?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I recently got the 215's but the coiled wire is driving me crazy as my computer is on the right but the wire is attached to the left. It sort of awkwardly crossed over and always brushes my leg (which is just really annoying)

I can sort of pull it around the front of the computer but then it feels like the wire is pulling on the headphones.

 

I can't seem to find any straight wires though, has anyone seen one? I can't seem to set it up conveniently otherwise.

I think the cable disconnects simply revealing a standard 3.5mm stereo plug.

This means a simple 3.5mm male to male stereo cable can be used as a replacement.

HOWEVER the actual entrance into the headphone socket is smaller than standard audio plugs, so you'd need to find a skinny one that fits.

Unfortunately it's not so.

The stereo plug at the headphone end is slimmer than the typical 3.5mm, so he needs a special extension cable from Sennheiser.

It's a (sh*ty) proprietary plug and it was employed in a few other headphones too.

As I recall some HD2xx or 4xx series headphones have a similar plug and they com with a straight (not coiled) cable, so it might be worth checking that out.

 

I believe this is the one (hd465/485):

Or this one:

You should contact Sennheiser to make sure, though.
