for the 6xx 3.5mm: Does anybody know if the bead is stationary or can you just untwist some of the cable and move it down? If not, does anybody know how long the cable is from the ear cup to the point where they are joined with the bead/the twist begins? My one gripe with the stock cable is that the L and R join less than 10 inches from where they attach at the ear cups. depending on how much that thing starts to twist best case it starts to hit me in the neck. worst case I am wearing it as a chin strap.

Alternatively, buy the official HD650 cable from Sennheiser for ~$11 + a soldering iron and whatever connector you want, and it would still be cheaper than this. Plus, you would learn a new skill in the process.
I was looking for things to learn in the spring of 2020 and soldering was at the top of my list. Certainly glad I learned and I am now quite good at it. I can pretty much desolder and solder the PCBs in an xbox controller, mistake free, in a few minutes. I've taken out stock cables and added detachable cables in about 5 pairs of headphones. That said, I dont think this is good advice. I wouldnt recommend learning how to solder just so you can save money on this particular cable. Learn because you want to learn how to solder. You likely lose a lot of money before you start saving. Even if you can make it work on your first, or first couple of tries, its probably not going to be a good job. Before you even start a job youre gonna need to buy a bad soldering iron for $12 bucks that plugs right into the wall, plus some solder and flux for like another 5 or 10 bucks. then youre gonna realize you didnt buy the right solder and you should have bought a better soldering iron. then youll buy a $60 kit with a knob for heat control and a solder sucker for $10 to clean up your mistakes. add in some clamps and a magnifier and im sure there are some wizards out there that can work wonders with that setup, but by then you'll probably have recognized that heat control is very important and certain jobs are best done with certain tips. Thats when you buy a station for over $150 with a screen that allows you to control temps down to the degree and a bunch of tips for different applications. if youre anything like me youll also probably have fried your fair share of components used for your projects. e.g. if you plan on making your own cable or making a DIY scuff controller, while learning on the fly, my best advice to you all is to buy enough hardware to make two or three of your desired end-product.

Spending $100 on a cable for a $220 headphone makes no sense?

The price for these cables is too high, but modding/aftermarket components for hifi gear can often be expensive and its not uncommon to spend nearly as much on supporting components as you do the hardware itself. Its not like this is the only option for replacement cables, and most people buying this are probably going for balanced which is a luxury.

I'd buy the Senn 2.5mm if it was offered in a really short length like 1.5", so I could use it with a BT receiver and connect it to an extension for desk use... I've had cables like that made for some of my other stuff but not my 6XX, heh.

Drop makes a 1.2m balanced 2.5mm cable for $50.

That's still way longer than I'm looking for, heh, but thanks... About 0.5m would be ideal for use with a clip on receiver when I'm not at my desk setup, probably have to go custom for that which is what I did for my IEM & ZMF.

Would this work with the Focal Elex?
