I just realized that I ordered the wrong length, can I get my order adjusted?

I believe you will need to contact Massdrop directly in order to modify your order.
One more question: I am sorry if this has been addressed before, but what are the important differences between this Cardas Premium Clear Light cables, the Cardas Clear Light cables referenced here:

https://www.moon-audio.com/cardas-clear-light-headphone-cable.html

And the standard Cardas Audio Clear cables made for Audeze and Sennheiser Headphones, eg :

https://www.amazon.com/CARDAS-Audiophile-Headphone-AUDEZE-LCD-XC/dp/B00SA5WZFK/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1533864586&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=cardas+audio+clear&psc=1

or here:

The Moon audio page describes the clear light as Cardas's "least expensive Matched Propagation technology cable," which offers "much of the performance advances of a Clear Headphone cable in a more price sensitive package," however, their cable is not called "Premium Clear Light." Is there a difference between "Clear Light and Premium Clear Light"?

I'm a bit confused myself. Is the "premium" label a massdrop thing? I assume these are Clear Light Cables as per the Cardas website.

Correct, we have only manufactured one "Clear Light Headphone Cable"
I wonder which of the following would have the best synergy with this cable (as compared to stock cables):
Sennheiser HD800, HD6XX, Hifiman He 1000, He 400i, Audeze LCD-X...

I already have alternative boutique cables for all these cans. I am interested in the Cardas, because of the length (4.5m), which will enable me connect one of these headphones to my main 2 channel listening rig from my favorite
listening position which is 14.5 feet away.

Headphone amp is a Violectric V281
DAC is a Schiit Yggdrasil
Source : Ultrarendu serving as a Roon endpoint.

Any thoughts
Why don't they have some cables for the HD700 as well? I'd order them immediately.

this drop includes terminations for HD700:
Available Headphone Connectors
  • 2.5mm mono plug for HD 700
The mini XLR cables will work with ZMF headphones as well, correct? Atticus/Eikon/Auteur, specifically.

I would highly recommend getting your ears on a pair, they are excellent :) ZMF uses only pins 1 and 3 in four-pin mini XLR connectors, pins 2 and 4 are left unused. If I remember correctly, pin 1 is the signal and pin 3 is ground. Please let me know if it is the same pinout for your mini-XLR connectors, I will join the drop if so, thanks!
mcknig.k
We terminate the Audeze for pins 1 and 4 positive, pins 2 and 3 are negative.
Would the single 3pin mini XLR work for the Beyerdynamic DT1770 Pro?

Could it be terminated in a 4 pin XLR?
ohsigmachi
If the Beyerdynamic uses a 3 pin mini XLR and has the same pin assignment as AKG it should work. Yes, the source end can be terminated with 4 pin XLR.

Hmm, I have no idea what the pin out is or if it the same as the AKG... probably won't chance it.
I think this is the best value you could get for an HD800 cable. Really excited for this.
Can I request Mr.speakers connector?

Thank you.
OK!
Thanks for your reply.
First, Cardas is a reputable company.
Second, it is 2018 now, everyone claimed himself or herself an audiophile should know cable can make difference, especially in hi-end system.
Third, $135 is definitely can be considered as "Cheap" among the current Hi-end cable market.
I personally owned an Aux 8 wire from OC studio($500) and will purchase an 1960s 4wires cable from PW audio($1200) for my 64 U12t.

I get you, that is pretty funny.

No offense, but cut the BS; things like this is going to be death of the "audiophile" community.
