    I don't think of mine as cheapies either, especially considering they are my most expensive pair of headphones. But relative to $3000 headphones, I guess they are cheapies lol

    Either way, they continue to bring my joy as well, which is all that really matters :)

    Thanks. This will help with search options.

    I make a mean cable myself. Message me if you're interested.

    I found my least expensive cables (which work fine for me) by searching for Sennheiser HD497. Being a less expensive headphone than the HD700 the search tends to return less expensive options. I have posted links from time to time but usually by the time someone wants them they have gone dead.

    So I ordered the iBasso pads based on advice in this thread. This has been the shipping tracking so far. What is going on? Is this real?

    LOL... actually I have seen tracking like that with some of my Aliexpress orders. Looks like it is getting close to leaving the country.

    Bizarre. All I know is when ordering from China via Amazon it takes weeks, but don't get any tracking info to follow. Hold tight.

    Here's a short comparison of 3 cables for Nighthawks. I bought Nighthawks second hand so not sure if it comes with these 2 cables.

    - Included long and thick cable: plenty of high quality bass, recessed mids and highs, no micro detail like echos.
    - Included short and thin cable: weak bass, more mids and highs in level and quality. Some micro detail.
    - ARCTIC CABLES EMU 4-Core UPOCC: a bit less bass than with original long one but more mids and highs. Better micro detail than others. Can hear some echos for the first time.

    So for regular use Arctic cables win. When in mood for extra bass, long original cable is best.

    Edit: I was suprised how big a difference there is between the cables.

    Nighthawk scales very well I think. Just moved form Chord Qutest and Arcam RHead to Chord TT2. 'Hawkes sounding better than ever, while low impedance they are definitely not shy for some more power behind them.

    I recently joined team Nighthawk with a pair of carbons and have been loving them; they pair beautifully with the JDS Labs Atom. Does anyone have any listening impressions with Shure 1540 pads fitted? I've only managed to find minimal information on this combination.
