I moved my Sennheiser factory upgrade to a Cardas headphone Cable balanced also. My 800 phones were singing far better than with Sennheiser's own cable.
Focal Clear Headphone Cable Problem
My balanced (4 prong) cable that came with the headphones has a loose connection somewhere under the insulation. Anyone know where to either
a) Buy an upgraded bal. cable. or
b) Get the factory cable repaired.
If anyone has had a good upgrade experience, I'm all ears.
I'm constantly having to wiggle the cable to get my Right Channel back. I'm suppose to relax and enjoy the music!
I highly recommend taking a look at LavriCable as they make high quality cables at very reasonable prices and fly below the radar. I got an excellent 1.2m balanced cable with silver wire and top connector/plugs for only $253 for my Hifiman Arya Stealths and it’s a big improvement over the stock cable. Here’s a link to the cable and how I configured mine.
