got local seller on carousell makes custom cables for these, quite cheap
https://carousell.com/p/custom-sennh...able-86347010/
Hey, the price stated is quite reasonable for custom jobs, tried another guy elsewhere and kena quote 150'ish SGD. The guy in your link, is there a phone or email with which I can contact him? Or, kena join Carousell first to deal with him? Looking to get a pair of 4pin Balanced XLR cable for my HD6XX.....and see if does other cans as well.

What's the tonal signature of the cables? The 650 is very warm sounding.

I've ordered a set of custom 4pin XLR Balanced cable for my HD6XX from the Carousell seller, should be getting it in a few days' time, will post a pic or two of the cable when I get it.

Edit - I don't believe cables really affect sound for headphones, I ordered the above-mentioned cable because I want to go Balanced. But, when it comes to IEM's, I do believe different (not necessarily 'better') cables do affect the sound. When I tried my Fitear Parterre with stock and ALO SXC 24 cable, I was pleasantly surprised by what I'd heard.

Just got the 4pin Balanced XLR cable from the carousell seller, pretty good workmanship, solidly built and I have no complaint whatsoever about the cable. Pretty damn affordable too, was actually surprised at how much it'd cost me.

Bought my HD6XX on 29th June.
Shipped out by Massdrop on 7th Nov 17.
Took so long to reach EZbuy warehouse on 16th Nov 17.

Finally in Singapore today. 20th Nov 17. Later go collect! Excited.

But I hope my S.M.S.L AD-18 can drive the Headphone.. Or else I'll have to de_dust my Fiio E09K Amp to drive these...

Finally my pair is here!
Had to use Fiio E09K to drive because S.M.S.L AD-18 was maxing out and feels muddled.


Can retire my HD 598s, they did so well while waiting for these cans to arrive.


Edit: Sounds beyond my expectations. However, a bit sibilant at the higher end.

Nice, you are using iFi BL (from your photo), do you also use iPurifier2?

Nope, never found a need for such gadgets to be honest.
