Still no news on the proper cable, in the meantime will have to do with these baby ( 4 pairs of single crystal copper + silver plated) I picked up for 30 shipped to the door. Let's hope the replacement are any better than these or I will be very disappointed in Sennheiser, again.
Can you give a little more info regarding this cable, how it sound compare to the cable that came with the headphones and where you got them from. Thanks....
The mids (voice and guitars) are brightened up, and percussion (cymbals, snare drums, kicker etc) has more present/ energy to it, better separation of instrument/s.
I'm doing A-B on my htc one series phone o/p via fiio A5, with my custom 3.5mm to 3.5mm linker. Album i'm listening now is Fast'n'Furious 7 OST, another favorite I often use for testing is Gundam Unicorn OST 1. At home I'm use my BD player o/p DACMagic+ (or a MOON DAC or a custom dual mono DAC), through my hub, then nowadays usually a O2 or Asgard2 or whichever i hooked up from the day before (various tube or SS)
I just browse on evil-bay and come across this seller based in china, whom I have bought from before and after few email exchanged he recommend/ built one for me.
Hope that answer what you were after...
You mentioned Gundam Unicorn OST 1. Can I ask which tracks stands out for you? God I loved the hell out of that series and the music from Sawano is fantastic.
I have Full Frontal on repeat a lot just because it has so much going on it it.
Also might I ask where you got the cable? Might give them a go while I wait for the cables from MD to come.
If you need a longer cable, just purchase one from Sennheiser. The 10ft cable original from hd650 is sold 16.99$ CAD from Sennheiser Canada
Full frontal surely got alot of energy in it, I'm most impress with is U.C. 0096, it almost archive a ZEN state for me on few occasion, another treat is Mobile suit (track 5?), very engaging and brings you straight to the front row in a battle.
The seller is based in china, I found him on e-bay.
It wasn't about money/ value, it is about promising one thing and didn't deliver. In communication class, if someone lies (or call it a fraud if that's easier to understand), not on a single occasion but twice or more, you can only wonder what else is he lying/ hiding (an old saying: Not the first time, won't be the last). On the scale of a company brand, it's very bad advertisement and potentially brand damaging.
And for the record, I already have a 10ft 1/4in extension w/ locking in my disposal which I'm using right now.
Here in the State is showing $10.99 USD but Out Of Stock.
"Let's hope the replacement are any better than these or I will be very disappointed in Sennheiser, again. "
You should know the answer already — the replacement will be just like the first cable, just 2 ft longer.
Is it not most often the darkest hour before dawn? Therefore, we mustn't lose hope.
No seriously dude, you are setting yourself up for an unrealistic expectation and disappointment. You're going to get a standard cable as replacement. To compare it to your custom after-market silver tipped thing is a foregone conclusion. It won't be as good. I don't know why you would ever expect a new stock cable replacement to be better than a custom aftermarket one...
... and yet the fact remains that our "promised" cable STILL hasn't arrived, even alex himself having trouble getting updates
