I was just about to start a thread on this same topic & saw this!!! I have an original pair of HD 25's the I just recently refurbished. New velour ear pads & a 1.2M cable with in-line remote for portable listening via phone. It makes for a truly durable, high quality audio option when on the go. The fact that all components are user replaceable is a bonus. I would rather a short, straight cable as opposed to a coiled one but other than that, it's a great idea for a drop! Don't need it to be the Plus version either.
