Seriously, why do people buy these ??
It's a nice cable from a reputable company.
Also cheaper than an official replacement cable with this drop.
Cardas Audio actually started manufacturing aftermarket cables for overear headphones in the late ‘90’s when I was a DJ on the Radio. I was going through stock cables for my Sennheiser HD 650’s every 6 weeks or so, so I asked my dad to make me some so I didn’t have to pay for new ones (plus shipping!) every month or so. All of our cables have a lifetime warranty (lifetime of the cable, not the purchaser), and can be reterminated should you change headphones or sources. The entire cable (including the copper) is made is the USA. We are a 31 year old company run by myself and my husband. We stand behind every product that leaves our door. Feel free to email me if you have any other questions or concerns Angela@cardas.com
The official cable's price is a joke, still I'd rather hear the 58x than buy an after market cable...
I like your idea to make a product that lasts more than others (that's the only reason you'd buy such expensive cables)
I've just never broke cables that fast and I can buy 6 low-priced after market cable before arriving at the price of this one.
I am pretty sure 6 cables would last me a lifetime, then again, if you hunt tigers cowboy style with your cables, you might need a more solid one indeed
Also they look and feel nice. Ive never noticed any sq differences, but the appearance and feeling of everything your headphones has is very important to the overall enjoyment of them in my opinion. I personally would rather make one or two headphones amazing than have a bunch of headphones. So I guess its just what you value in your audio experience.
Yes, it's your money and I am no one to tell you how to use it so do what pleases you!
I could not buy a factory HD800 cable replacement for this price, and I've broken two of those. Cardas has a long reputation of quality in an industry that is legitimately filled with fly-by-night cable manufacturers of low build quality. Cardas makes mechanically and electrically sound cables with good terminations, and stands behind them with a generous warranty you know you'll be able to honor. Unlike most other companies, they should still be here in 10 years.
For me, I buy it to solve a problem. My cables are getting between me and my enjoyment in listening to music. $200 is a fair price to solve that problem, and with Cardas you know it's done right without comparison shopping or fretting.
There is so little confusing about cardas, its not like they just buy wires and twist them up for you, they make the copper wire themselves as far as I know and even that became highly sought after for other cable makers and yet theyve always just had a "high" price while almost every other high end cable maker has astronomical prices especially on a short run item like a headphone cable, and it's well terminated??!? But for sure, if you are on a budget and dont need a great cable yes of course there are cheaper cables with decent reliability, the point is if you want something better, with a lifetime warranty, these are really affordable HIGH QUALITY cables, not budget cables, to compare them with a 30 dollar hit or miss cable is stupid. These compare well against OTHER several hundred to thousand dollar cables, if thats not anywhere near your budget no one is suggesting you NEED these. Man, just ranting because people seem to love to abuse any company that brings quality to a lower price bracket, scare them away and then all you WILL have is snake oil cables between fifty and five hundred dollars... gr8.
