Extension Cable Help

more_vert
Hi. I just joined Drop and purchased the Sennheiser 6XX. I will be using it in my home connected to my Denon receiver. I need to add length to the included cable. Are there any specific requirements or features that I should look for in an extension cable? Any recommendations?

Pangea makes an inexpensive cable. I looked at it and the Grado and picked this for the build quality. You can get it at Audio Advisor. Absolutely doesn't change the sound in any way that I can detect, including when moving the cable around. https://www.pangeaaudio.com/headphones/headphone-cables

Thank you cledry. I was unaware of this brand, so I will check it out.
I don't own their extension cable but I have several Pangea cables (USB, RCA interconnects, one power cable) and can also attest to their quality. They did not have an extension available when I bought my Grado years ago. Based on their other cables my gut tells me the Grado will be a bit more flexible (not more versatile, physical characterstic).
Grado 15ft extension, well made, reasonable price... been using mine for years.

Thank you ElectronicVices. I will do some research on that model.
I bought it for the exact same purpose as yourself, well for an HD650 technically (same can longer cable and different color). The Sennheiser stock HD650 cable is like 3m so adding the Grado netted me roughly 8m/25ft

That's what I thought too, it's a cable for 30 Euro. But no, it's a cable that I have claimed sounded better, thus I am the enemy, and should not be allowed near power tools :)

Here be dragons. In the Audiophile community there are opposing factions. Some claim that better cable is better sound. Others claim that better cable is snake oil. So you will likely get very few responses because of the "pile on" effect. Don't pay more than $30 for it.

Thank you praxis22 for your help. My intention is not to start a battle. I just am not sure how to tell what will work with the Sennheisers. If there is an advantage in doing so, I would be willing to consider a longer replacement for the cable that came with the cans. Otherwise, I am just looking for an extension. I don't believe I have the necessary connections for a balanced cable and I am unwilling to spend anything close to the cost of the headphones for the cable.

Let me go on the record... player for the first time
Hi, I'm looking at getting into the record player game. Thank you for your time in advance, I know this is a long read. Anyways... I have some Massdrop x AKG M220 Blues and a Little Dot Mk 3 220v tube amp from the Mega Mystery Box from way back when, and I've really only used the AKGs a few times, but enough that I can tell they're WAY beyond the quality of music I can push to them. I need some recommendations on some speakers, a record player, and maybe an amp if what I'm working with is totally inappropriate. I'm really new to the audiophile game, so if there's another piece of kit I'd need to get the most out of a setup, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm giving rough budgets, but if you know of something that's a little outside the range but is a much larger leap in performance and features than the leap in budget, I'm game. If anyone knows of a good place to get new and old records for good prices, I'd like to know that too! The intent is to have a nice place to sit...

Amazon Listing Suppression? How Do I Fix It?
What is a Suppressed Amazon listing? So what is an Amazon suppressed listing? When a listing doesn’t live up to Amazon’s rigorous standards, they will suppress it. These listings won’t be visible to your customers – hence the name, and listing suppression. Since the dawn of the COVID era, suppressed Amazon listings are one of the most common problems that a seller can face. Simply put – a suppressed listing is when Amazon hides your product from the search and browse areas because it doesn’t meet their listing standards. Here is a great example where the buy-box is suppressed. Look familiar? Amazon does this to improve the shopping experience for their users by effectively deactivating low-quality product listings through suppression. They want to maximize their customer’s ability to find, evaluate and quickly purchase products, and every decision behind suppressing a listing comes from a research-first approach to Amazon’s sales management. When inside Seller Central...
