Normally, I would agree with you on the cable buuut... they're meant to be portable. I can't see myself wearing a pair of HPs with the T1 cables attached to it no matter how short. biggrin.gif With that said.... have you looked up how much it costs to replace the pads on a pair of T5ps....? O_o

That is totally crazy... :eek:

For every pad change... you could be buying a pair of DT880s. So not worth it.

I just think it could be a little thicker, if you snagged that cable on a corner of a counter or something I bet it could rip right out of one ear, it's so thin!

 

The T1 cable is way too thick for portable, I agree with that, a happy medium would be nice for the price you pay for the headphones.

 

And damn that price is high! They aren't even comfortable tbh, I demoed the pair I recabled (obviously) and actually thought to myself that I would have to replace the pads if I ever owned a pair. But the headphone diameter is 4" and there are a TON of pads that will fit that size, including Alpha Pads. That's what I'd be getting.
