Eric, thanks for all the great work answering everybody's replies. Eventhough I haven't asked you a question in over 6 months, I still appreciate you responding to us. Anyway, I have a question for you. Back when the HE-500's came out, it was shipped with a black Canare cable. I would like to purchase it. This is the correct cable on your site, yes? http://head-direct.com/Products/?act=detail&id=140 I know it says HE-400, but just wanted to make sure I can use this on my HE-500 (I'm pretty sure it can). I heard the silver cable that came out later on is a bit dryer than the Canare, so I would like to try it out for myself. Again thank you for your help.
