It would be great if they have length 3m option.
Anyone know if these are microphonic? Looks like paracord so it could really go either way...
Would this fit a Sennheiser HD-250 linear II?

With their top quality cables you will be able to hear how awful your equipment really is :D
Can anyone recommend a good 9-10 ft long cable for these headphones?

Yeah, but that cable is so.. generic... I want something prettier :D
iatsbohdan
So right. I just needed something longer to reach my dac/amp. Should have added that I am old and my ears probably lost the upper frequency sensitivity to appreciate the pretty sound of the fanmusic. I do like the 6XX and hope you get the right cable. Would be interested if you find something better.
I vaguely remember that Massdrop has their own replacement cables for the 6xx, that are supposed to be better? Anyone know about them?
Also, what do balanced cables do for you? These do not appear to be balanced.

Any specific ones worth recommending?
Don't have a balanced amp or dap yet

Idk, I'm just using Schiit Valhalla 2 to drive my 6xx, and it works just fine.
Will these work with Sennheiser HD25’s?
Question, I know the 6XXs have the same connectors as the 660S, sooooo these would totally work fine with those right? Probably a dumb question I just don’t wanna drop $60 on something before I know for sure
N.Gil
They're the same. You'll be fine.
What we fucking need is... a 1.5m cable with a 2.5mm plug! And with it a 4.4mm adapter. We use high-end DAPs - anybody at Massdrop fucking listening?😩 Our DAPs have powerful amps and balanced outputs with a 2.5mm/4.4mm plug, do you fucking capiche? I don't need a high-end desktop system, my DAP blows them all away soundwise & specwise! I can move about in the house with my DAP, or I can walk outside (yes I'm more than happy to walk down the street with an openback Sennheiser headphone). And while I'm here, silver-lined copper cables sound better than copper-only cables☔

Short and to the point!
$60 cables. Lol. Reminds me of that month I worked at Guitar Center back in college...
Any chance to get a 3.5 mm balanced termination?
I found these (and ordered them) on Amazon. They are half the price of the cables being sold on Massdrop (nothing personal). So much discussion and arguing on this issue, I thought I would try to put an end to it (fat chance). I will give my (unbiased) review whence I receive said cables (possibly a few weeks for some reason, but that's okay). Cheers!

They sound good.

I ordered 2m version for HE 4xx I got today,but it's holidays in China now so nothing's going out till 8th.
6ft. If i am going with an upgraded cable I want to be able to smack my Amp and EQ down next to my TV and run it across the living room or bedroom for TV watching. Would need one about 20 feet.

I'm thinking you need bluetooth instead... :)
Does it fit a Fostex and can they reverse polarity for the Fostex?
No 3.5mm end option?
Drizzt321
3.5mm balanced would be ideal!
If the cable my headphones came with isn't good enough, I want a refund on my headphones.

I would say those sonic differences are people giving in to the snake oil(assuming you were talking about cables not pads), and not understanding what the placebo effect is. I even remember someone making the claim that it couldn't be placebo because they owned the original cables for years...I really don't think they even understood what the placebo effect was. Edit: Also only really referring to people talking about magic cables that are silver or whatever else.

Well, in medicine, the take is that if one thinks it works, it works. That seems true enough to apply generally- if I believe something is better or more this or more that, then my experience is that it is more whatever I perceive it to be.
On the other hand, I don't care how much better a cable makes my headphones sound (or makes me believe my headphones sound), I have better things on which to waste my money.
God damn this cable is at least 3 times the quality of the van dammed cable, that van damme cable was obviously fraudulent garbage that proved to me that massdrop doesnt understand quality control issues. Not this fan music cable tho, only buying fannusic or venture from now on. Van damme cable garbage that broke after a month, nobody likes them, yet still get posted to try a take your money when this fan music cable is the type of quality product they should be selling.
Why would you spend so much on a cable ?

It's like when you choose to stay in a higher end hotel while on vacation. Electrons apparently enjoy being pampered too... LOL
Actually, you can buy an official sennheiser cable which fits the 58x, 6xx etc. for $20. It's 3m long and has a 6.35mm (1/4") plug.
I got mine from amazon and is great.
It is not a balanced cable like this drop, but my DAC isn't balanced so no need for me to upgrade cables or DAC's yet.
Is 4 pin balanced?

the headphone.com guide is pretty in depth and if you follow it you should see that even when dual 3 pin xlr's are used to drive headphones directly there are 2 completely unused pins, as it is only R+ and R- and L+ and L-
Just want a nice high quality cable instead of the stock Senn one. How does this compare to one I can built using Canare wire and connectors?
Buckbrick
It's a cable. Canare wire and connectors are likely better than this one, as Canare is shielded better
How to these compare to the Venture Electronics Cables >https://www.massdrop.com/buy/venture-electronics-headphone-cables#description.
Note, this cable is 6.5 foot = 2m length. The -$15 on the venture electronics cables is misleading (only for 1.2m length) as it will cost +$10 extra for 1.8m so the price is actually about on par for both cables.
From what I gather. Fanmusic C6 Cables: - claim to have used high-end professional Sommer cable from Germany, made of tightly braided oxygen-free copper that’s covered in fabric below the Y split - Neutrik connectors - 2m standard length. No option and no bullshit 1.2m.
Venture Electronics Cables: - No details on the actual quality of the cable or whats been used. Only that it is braided, MD themed colour. - Yongsheng connectors (Supposedly "Chinese" division of Ningbo Neutrik Electronics Co., Ltd) - quality is not on par (read: lesser than) compared to Neutrik, according to thread/community comments i.e. they don't fit as perfectly and require some messaging into the connector when new. - 1.2m length. Optional: +$10 for 1.8m. +$50 for 3m.
My question is if anyone has both cables and can provide a comparison. Any thoughts???
No balanced 4.4mm pentaconn cables, no buy.
Thanks to the comments here I find nice alternative cables for my HD660's and my others cans :) http://ursine.audio/ & https://periaptcables.com/

Too bad that ursineaudio don't ship to EU.
macken
email him, he'll give you shipping details
I wish there was an option for a longer cable.
I'd love to review these but the HD6xx drop takes 4 months to ship ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

it is not 4 months dude come on
its only 3 months and 29 days...
mnmnoz
Hindsite I should've put a penny into a retirement account instead of ordering the HD6xx.
Atleast by the time they actually ship that penny would cover the difference in price I'm saving.
is it really better than stock one?
Paulng
Depends on what you mean by better.
Paulng
Stock cable is just great and it is also color marked. I consider it laziness or neglect to color mark channels, it does not cost much but helps a lot. I wanted longer cable and ordered stock, sounds the same but looks better and definitely cheaper: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000KPSLZG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Isn't there any option to choose longer cable? I need a balanced cable at least 2.5m long. :-(
kimwook
You can always head over to Periapt and grab their Senn cables.

I agree silverbot......... bought 1 for HD600's and just ordered type 2 and type 7. Can't beat the price and the quality is good to very good. Also like the fact you can pick the fabric color for the wrap. Much better than YZ cables.
Instead of using 65 dollers on a worse looking cable than the original which also doesn't change the sound, donate those money to doctors without borders

Did you measure output voltage or sound pressure to make sure that volume is actually the same? Its impossible to do it properly by ear.
sergeyu
@Cokeman I think the final determination comes down to this: we know what we like when we hear it, regardless of how we hear it. If we like it better after throwing a few more dollars at it, so be it.
No need to convince anyone how much we like what we like, the way we like it ;- )

I’m one of those who’s tried up-grade cables and decided there’s nothing there (just another dent in your wallet). Don’t mean to spoil the fun, just say‘n...

For me $50-$75 is the price where you aren't getting cheap Chinese cables and you aren't spending hundreds of dollars on BS silver cables or anything like that.
Cokeman
I could go that high--but I'd only use them on formal occasions.
Look at Corpse cable on eBay too. They cut down a Senn cable to 4 ft and put a 3.5 end on it for $59. I have two of them. Very high quality. Amusing to see people who bought $200 sense here not realize what good cables cost.
darwin
Good cables cost $11.
That's the official HD650 cable from Sennheiser.
But it's fine to pay more if you think you can tell a sonic difference, or want a nice looking cable.

Hang on, I just realised what the post above mine was saying.

They take an $11 stock Senn cable, chop it down, add a $3 Amphenol plug and charge you $59 dollars for it? Not a bad business model. I had no idea that the stuff that I do for kicks in my spare time with a soldering iron could be worth so much!
