Ah so it's more for smaller devices as opposed to big amp/dacs that typicalluy use 4 pin XLRs?

Sorry for noobie questions (yes I've been around here forever, and yet just started thinking about balanced stuff).
4.4mm was designed to address the weakness of 2.5mm..... but it seems 4.4 also less bulky on desktop devices so on the new ifi NEO iDSD there're only 4.4 and 6.35 outputs which looks way better.

$119... hmm I'll never get the pricing of "quality" cables. Don't mean to be a dick but people that can't justify paying half the price of the headphone for a cable should know that there are 15 bucks options on aliexpress, that are pretty decent and get the job done.
My stock cable from Massdrop (now called, Drop... for my HD6XX) shorted-out within a few months. I received a credit from DROP and picked up an authentic Sennheisser stock cable. Meh... for 119 bucks, I'm looking for something fancy. And if it feels good, do it! {a cheesy reference to an awful 1970s movie} :ksc75smile:

Review of the Cablez is coming In a little later than I expected. I take photos last when I review stuff. I’ve had the Cablez for a long time now so my 6xx hasn’t been home for a bit. I leave my 6xx with its stock cable plugged into my headphone tube amp inside my cube. Someone stole my 6xx from my cube while I was out of the office. They left the tube amp which was worth way way more so yay! Tried to grab another 6xx so I could take pics with the Cablez attached. Then found out the 6xx isn’t shipping till the end of the month. Review will be up tonight or tomorrow for those interested.

I really wish they had a 4 pin xlr option. I know there are 4.4mm to xlr adapters, but, eh. That and 1.2m is too restrictive in length.

I hate 4 pin XLR.
Cumbersome and heavy.
I have converted all my balanced cables to 2.5mm and I have bought the Drop XLR adapter.
4.4 seems to be the golden standard not only for portable devices as it is a stable and secure connection with a slim plug.

I still have some xlr cables but mostly everything is 4.4mm. I have a few different 4.4mm to xlr adapters for my desktop amps which still only have xlr balanced output.

there're so many xlr cable options but not 4.4... my Cardas Clear Light XLR just arrived and I'm trying to find how i can convert it to 4.4mm....
