2.5mm jacks are B- to work with, without helping hands..
that red cable is the spare one i had when i had hd700, I ordered a black cable to match w5000's color.
Another stuff i found; putting a foam onto w5000's earpad seems to make treble peaks go away and make bass punch harder.
I think that's the foam that i pulled out from, because i got the earpad along with my he-560.
Did you make it with Shure's headphone MMCX connector or you just hard solder into it?
Could you take a pics of your inner driver (I mean by taking off pad only) Mine seems to have been vented. I don't find it sibilant myself as it sound really heavenly with that spike, (for me at least)
