Earbuds with long cord

more_vert
I am 6'6" tall and find that most ear buds do not have a long enough cord. Are there any out there that come with a standard extra long cable? I use buds that have an inline mic, and right now I am using the inexpensive first harmonic IEB6 and the cord is about 6" to short. Any suggestions?

Sennheiser Momentum In-Ears have a pretty long cord. 1.3 meters or ~4.2 ft. Haven't bought them myself though. I've got the Beyerdynamic DX160IE which has a removable cord and comes with multiple lengths options out of the box.

I'm 6'2, and find that the stock cable on my Shures is plenty long enough, there's usually a short loop of extra cable coming out of the bottom of my jacket, in fact.
Failing that- just choose some IEMs that you like, which have removable cables that are popular enough to also be made by third parties. You can get some nice blingy cables hand-made at any length you like, so you're guaranteed to get a length that suits you.
In Europe, someone like Forza Audioworks would be a great choice. Given that you use inches and are called "Thad", I'm guessing you're in the USA, though (detective skills!) - so you'll have to look around for yourself, if you want someone similar.
Hope that helps.
Edit: Some people say good things about these guys:

I haven't used them personally, so can't vouch, but might be worth investigating.

Just get the JayBird X2's!
The only in-ears I have with an extra long cord are my Sony MDR-7550's but those aren't really "out and about" IEM's as they have pretty decent sized vents on them. I second the others opinions on an extension cable, my Triple-Fi 10's came with one that is about 6-8". If you are using the Mic function make sure you get an extension that is labeled TRRS, not just TRS.

Could always try an extension cable. In fact many of the splitters I've seen are roughly 6" Monoprice doesn't have a whole lot of options, but defintely inexpensive enough to give it a try: http://www.monoprice.com/category?c_id=102&cp_id=10218

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
