I think now I'm ready to make a review. First of all, I bought this cable to replace a broken cable for my HD600. Before my cable broke I was skeptical about cables making sound differences on headphones but I got one from ebay for 43 dollars from a brand called venus audio which made my headphone sound less detailed on both ends and more "mid centered", raising the volume of my amp "solved" the issue but I didn't like the quality of the connectors on the cable so when I saw this drop I joined immediately, for curiosity most. And I'm not disappointed this cable looks much better the connectors are much better too, this is also the length I was looking for and the sound.. Oh my.. the sound is just as excellent as the stock cables!! I know this is not what people is looking to read on reviews of this type of products but after hearing a worst than stock cable for me is such a relief as I blind bought this one. But! (and there is a big but haha) How the other cable sounded worse and why this doesn't sound better than the stock cable? Well a cable can make a difference in sound when it changes the total impedance of the headphones, the stock one is already to low, so lower impedance cable doesn't really make an audible difference for most of us but when the impedance is higher it's much more noticeable. On some headphones and IEMs cables can affect the sound in a good way (there are graphics that shows volume changes in specific frequencies without affecting the others) but for the HD600 I don't think it's needed, what this headphone really need is a short and reliable good quality cable. Maybe in the future if a get to try the stock cables again I may hear a very very small difference but for now I'm totally happy with what this cables are.. A robust well constructed nice looking cable. Keep enjoying music!
