hd6xx shielded cable

more_vert
Getting a bit of interference on my hd6xx headphones when my iphone is too close to the stock cable and a text or call comes in. Moving it away from the cable solves it. Not a huge deal but looking to see if anyone can recommend a good shielded replacement cable?

I think a balanced cable would resolve this? Check out Hart Audio Cables or Periapt. https://hartaudiocables.com/collections/headphone-cables
https://periaptcables.com/ I have same headphones w/ balanced cables from Hart. Love them. Good luck!

I bought these from Etsy and liked them so much I ordered another custom cable for a different headphone. The owner is really nice too. https://www.etsy.com/listing/786048179/headphone-cable-for-sennheiser-hd6xx

Well shielded, and you start paying for it;) https://www.ebay.com/itm/8-Foot-FURUTECH-Sennheiser-HD6XX-HD660S-HD600-HD650-Headphone-Cable/174313008046?hash=item2895dd6bae:g:SssAAOSwRLZaZjyB Uses mic studio stuff: “Mogami W2893 Miniature Quad Microphone Cable

Miniature Quad Mic Cable

Miniature Quad Superflexible Mic. Cable Originally designed for BANTAM patch-cords, this cable has become popular where a small diameter Quad mic cable is required. Mogami Neglex quad cable is perfect cable for home studios suffering from wiring and grounding problems. Mogami 2534 should also be used where intense RFI interference is a problem. Mogami 2534 provides an improvement in signal to noise of 10-20db over equivalent twisted pair cables. Double conductors quad cables are more effective in canceling noise that can get past even the best of shields and is critical in an environment of high RF and EM interference. Conductor insulation is XLPE ( Cross-Linked Polyethylene) which has excellent electrical characteristics and prevents shrink-back during soldering. Served (spiral) Bare Copper Shield is superior to foil or braided shields for sound quality and simplifies termination.”

@jaxtrauma Ha, I wish. After getting the Audiophile bug, I find myself looking at my account all too often as it is.

I have nabbed two nice used cables off the bay for ~$40-50, an Amplifier Surgery & Venus Audio, both shielded and well made Senn style. New they are both about the same price as that Mogami. I recently needed an extension, so got one made out of Mogami 2534, impressive, as in ‘not there’. Didn’t a/b test, sounded fine and with the newly adapted ‘home office’, needed an extension, so believer as HP cables, this Neglex level stuff should excel.

This one says its shielded: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0744FBS4V/?coliid=I3W56D2NWA149F&colid=2KN5YROQGJBGN&psc=1 Hope it helps, but at that price I'm curious about the 'shielding', it also says it has a balanced option, but there's no way to select that. Caveat emptor ;-) But at 20 bucks, heck send it back if you're not happy, know what I'm sayin'?

Thanks for the recommendation. Looking at the reviews in that link, i'm not even going to bother with trying those. Connectors seem to be a little over-sized for the 6xx, and that seems to be a trend on a lot of the reviews aftermarket cables for Sennheiser that claim to fit multiple different models. The 6xx, apparently, has just a slightly smaller connection than the others.
