DO NOT USE THESE, they make it VERY easy to break your 3.5mm jack.

Instead, use something like this that separates the 1/4" section from the smaller jack:


Alternatively, you can get this aftermarket cable:


u/jasonnug · 16 pointsr/buildapcsales

Yes, the cord that comes with it is crap imo. I got this cord recently for mine and it's fantastic.


u/Daemon_Ursus · 12 pointsr/buildapcsales

I also really like these, great headphones at a great price. However the stock cords suck pretty hard unless you like grippy rubber cables. I picked up these as a replacement, and fully recommend them for anyone else who doesn't like the stock cable:


u/Kryzm · 7 pointsr/headphones

Congrats! I love my 598Cs. They're going to be my go to headphones until Massdrop ships my K7XX :)

Now every I see the 598Cs I recommend getting this replacement cable.

It's worth every penny. Enormous upgrade over the stock cable.

u/notdeadyet01 · 6 pointsr/buildapcsales

Just a heads up, you'll want to purchase one of [these] (https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Audio-upgrade-Sennheiser-Headphones/dp/B00KAKBHKM) to go along with it. The wire that comes with it is 10 feet long and the 3.5mm adapter is huge and clunky.

u/atirad · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

This cable is a great replacement for the stock, preference for shorter high quality cable for your desk to amp/dac.


u/PsykoDemun · 5 pointsr/technology

2.5mm is simply a size for the plug. You can do TRS (or TRRS) on a 2.5mm jack for balanced stereo audio.

As an example Sennheiser uses a 2.5mm end on their headphone cables to plug into the headphones themselves. Here's a replacement cable for Sennheiser headphones that is a 3.5mm male to 2.5mm male.

u/DerJawsh · 5 pointsr/headphones

IIRC the HD598 uses a non-standard connector for the plug that goes into the headphones. It's actually not 3.5mm that plugs into the headphone but rather 2.5mm.

The HD 598SE (black version on Amazon) comes with a shorter cable that is 3.5mm without adapter if that interests you.

Otherwise, I believe there are unofficial "replacement cables" for the HD 598 that you can buy (I believe there are some official ones too but you have to scour the Sennheiser parts site) that are 2.5mm/3.5mm


u/Gallifrasian · 4 pointsr/GooglePixel

I use this. It works for both my Sennheisers and M50x. Although, you'll probably have the same issue as it's only very slightly smaller.

I would recommend an adapter like this. Just leave it on the end of your cable all the time and you won't notice it.

u/ilikeshoes23 · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

I got these a few weeks ago and the cable it comes with is pretty long...

Got these to replace the original cable, they work great.


u/rjwwrx · 4 pointsr/headphones

I'm really enjoying the new Metallica album. The mastering/production is quite good. Death Magnetic borders on unlistenable with my 598's so I appreciate that they didn't make that atrocious mistake again.

Happy to be able to enjoy another Metallica album. Now if I can just stop wanting another pair of headphones...

Edit to include a link to the replacement senn cable for those curious.

u/deexmikey · 4 pointsr/headphones

Give this cable a try.

u/Route66_LANparty · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

I bought these a few years back. Turned me into a huge Sennheiser fan boy. The comfort and durability alone are notable. Add-in that the sound quality brings you into the realm of audiophile-grade and you have a huge reason to buy whenever they go on sale.

I have the 558 in my laptop bag for gaming on the go, a pair of HD518 for use with the Vive, and the Massdrop HD6xx on my main PC setup.

I've been wanting to grab another set for work, was hoping to grab the 598 and "complete the set." But this is tempting.


I use the following replacement cables with mine:

u/abarrelofmankeys · 3 pointsr/PSVR


No problem, if for some reason you want to go with the senns considering I can give you a first hand review that they sound great, are pretty durable (I only say pretty because I take good care of stuff and am not hard on them, but I've had no problems) and are comfy, this is the cord I bought https://amzn.com/B00KAKBHKM

The long one has it's uses, it's nice for plugging into a pedal and playing guitar at night or plugging into a pc, but it's impractical for most day to day and portable use.

EDIT: http://cdn.arstechnica.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/psvr-4-980x654.jpg Apparently that's where headphones plug in half way down the cable (buds are above the move remotes), so it won't be as big of a problem as I thought, and a short one might actually be a problem. Ugh, so many things to consider.

u/afish_insea · 3 pointsr/headphones


Relatively inexpensive, good cable. Not silver or anything super fancy, but it's built well and is braided

u/OurEyesArentReal · 3 pointsr/Vive

> My assumption is that closed headphones adds more presence since it isolates you more from the real world.

This is true. But with closed headphones you get less sound stage and it feels more like you're wearing headphones than it feels like sounds are happening around you. Open headphones allow sounds to feel like there is some space between your ear and where the sounds is coming from. It's kind of a balancing act.

I'm going to be using my Sennheiser HD 558 for personal use. They're the most comfortable thing I put on everyday. I could probably wear them 24/7 and not notice them. They just kind of melt into your head and onto your ears... and they sounds great for the price.

I did buy a shorter cable and plan on ziptieing the Vive cables so I get a snugger fit without more cable flopping around. The cable that comes with Senn HD5XX headsets is at least 8 feet long. Great for at your desk, not great to be dragging around behind you in VR.

u/foodwrap · 3 pointsr/headphones

I got these a few weeks ago and it's been fantastic so far, really nice build quality and shipping was quite a bit faster than expected which was another plus.

u/ogre_pet_monkey · 3 pointsr/cableadvice

I have no idea how you did not find this, but here goes:

  1. google: sennheiser 558 cable
  2. first hit 'accessories' > http://en-us.sennheiser.com/audio-headphones-high-end-hd-558

    you can directly order from sennheiser us or look for part:
    542192 or the shorter cable without part-id on the website.

    second hit is amazon, with a 3rd party cable:

    .. and the list goes on

    edit: the smaler cable has article number: 505638
u/PlaidDragon · 3 pointsr/audiophile

Check this out. It's a great cable, I think it's worth the money.


u/fightinchunk · 3 pointsr/headphones

Most of the comments here are correct in regards to silver/copper with all else being equal. But these cables increased the max volume I was able to reach with my phone because of the lack of an inline mic, which adds enough resistance where I was able to notice a VOLUME difference(NOT SOUND QUALITY, that stayed the same once volume matched). The HD598cs cable comes with an inline mic that adds resistance and confirmed that the hd598cs cable added the most resistance out of the other 2.5mm - 3.5mm cable options I had at my disposal(hd598 cable, hd598cs cable, akg k545, 3 audio technica cables from m50x). The regular 598 cable, all 3 m50x cables, and the aftermarket cable akg k545 cable(all of which didn't have inline mics) all reached significantly louder volumes that the cables that had inline mics.

Keep in mind that this experiment was performed with a phone, which has a combined mic/headphone jack. When a TRRS jack with inline mic is inserted into the phone's headphone/mic combined port, this was the only time I noticed the differential in volume. When I tried performing the same experiment on my desktop's headphone jack, which has a separate mic jack, there was no noticable volume difference between the cables with inline mics and without them. Performing the same experiment with all my laptops(combined single mic/headphone port) produced the same results with my phone.

edit: I also remember reading a couple of posts here about the button being all fucked up, where some redditors were experiencing left/right issues after unknowingly damaging the multifunction button on the wire. If you feel like you're not getting the proper volume, get these cables if you didn't use the inline mic much.

u/kjack9 · 3 pointsr/Vive

I got this one for use with my HD558s. I'm then running a 30 ft long headphone extension (15ft from computer to link box, 15 ft for Vive cable) back to a Behringer headphone amp and then a DAC. I also have other 15 ft extensions (DisplayPort, USB, power) from the link box back to my PC.

The end result? 30 ft of Vive leash, headphone cable is cable-wrapped back to a proper headphone amp and DAC. No plugging/unplugging, and good sound quality to boot.

Granted, take everything I just said above with the understanding that I don't have a Vive yet, and it might work great...or not!

u/10GuyIsDrunk · 3 pointsr/Vive

You want this.

u/Damieok · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

Your welcome, unfortunately the only affordable replacement cables come from China, so the shipping time is long.

The only US replacement cables I've seen are overpriced and hyped up for audiophiles.

The seller is on Amazon as well and has some variants with phone mics built in.

Edit: Fixed Link.

u/hiscout · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

^ this is exactly the one I have.

Correction: I have the 4ft cable for $5 less But it's up to you what length you need. The other linked one is 8ft.

u/deskjockee · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

For anyone not liking the provided cable, I got This replacement cable, and it has been great.

u/kencater · 2 pointsr/assholedesign

Amazon has some pretty great generic replacement ones. A variety of lengths and finishes available. Mine are from here.

u/leppermessiah1 · 2 pointsr/Vive

The 558's and 518's have the same removable cable as the 598's (which I have and sound phenominal). The 598's come bundled with a shorter cable, but you can purchase one here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KAKBHKM/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Edit: It's only the 598 Special Edition that comes bundled with the shorter cable, but they are all replacable.

u/louderthanthis · 2 pointsr/Vive

I use my old 518's for the Vive. I bought one of these in a 1.2m length and they're stylish and just perfect https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KAKBHKM/

No coiling. Short enough that it can just be there.

u/Traegs_ · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I'll never not recommend Sennheiser, they are amazing. Even their budget headphones are really good and sound leagues better than similarly priced headphones from "premium" companies like Skullcandy and Turtle Beach.

Comfortable, sound great, replaceable cable, and easy to clean (those ear cushions pop right off, I hand wash them with Dawn dish soap about 2-3 times a year).

The default cable with the 6.33m plug and 3.5mm adapter is a little annoying, I replaced mine with one of these and it's been great.

u/dailyapple · 2 pointsr/headphones

I ended up getting this one and I'm pretty happy with it, has the locking mechanism, I like the look, and seems durable so far.


Edit: Closeup

u/rehpotsirhc123 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

You might want to swap cables if you pick those up because they come with a 10 foot cable that has a 1/4" connector, any 3.5mm to 3.5mm male cable will work, if the ends are skinny enough but they sell ones made for headphones. |


u/Kurumiz · 2 pointsr/headphones

own some hd598's, hope i can help

i don't have a nontwist cable to test, but im pretty sure you need a nontwist cable to put into your headphones. you need to twist to shove them in all the way(if they aren't in all the way, you will only get sound out of your left ear, or quiet sound, or other stuffs). essentially no, you cannot use the headset without locking the cable into place.

i step on my cables a lot, and imo this is actually perfect. it keeps the cable in the jack perfectly. if you keep pulling on it for some months it'll seem to come loose easier, but cables are dirt cheap to replace in stead of you usually needing to get new headphones when you inevitably break your cable (went through 5+ headphones before i got my sennheisers)

i recommend grabbing one of the replacement cables sold on amazon. they hold into your pc jacks better than the cable+2.5>3.5mm adapter that it comes with in the first place. i got the 3m and it's been great (i broke my old one due to twisting it really really hard inside the jack with my chair, completely my fault. other than that it's held up great.)

i really don't understand the need to not have the twist mechanism, it's pretty beneficial. is there any reason why you'd actually need to remove it?

u/morelikepotatos · 2 pointsr/hardwareswap

I have one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Audio-upgrade-Sennheiser-Headphones/dp/B00KAKBHKM/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1449982201&sr=8-1-fkmr1&keywords=hd+558+custom+cable

and also my hd 600's (and the 598's), come with one (although it's not braided). These cables are EXCELLENT, and that stock cable is freaking insane lol. It's pretty much impossible to use these headphones on the go without these. Oh an also because they are sleeved they don't tangle, and the spring at the end keeps the cable from wearing down overtime. It's pretty much good all around.

u/pntless · 2 pointsr/headphones

I've been using https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Audio-upgrade-Sennheiser-Headphones/dp/B00KAKBHKM for about a year and a half. It is decent and comes in different lengths.

u/Explore-- · 2 pointsr/audiophile

I have a pair of 598's that I have had for a year. I want to make them a little louder so I am looking into getting an AMP/DAC. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LP3AMC2)

Also, I want to upgrade the cable to one that is a little bit shorter. I just don't know what size of this (https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Audio-upgrade-Sennheiser-Headphones/dp/B00KAKBHKM/ref=pd_bxgy_23_img_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00KAKBHKM&pd_rd_r=SMADGB41HQ3CRAP4XV4C&pd_rd_w=QToiZ&pd_rd_wg=2mqQo&psc=1&refRID=SMADGB41HQ3CRAP4XV4C) to get.

Thanks for the help.

u/Brandonandon · 2 pointsr/headphones

Amazon has some nice replacements.

Sennheiser RCG M2 is a 1.4M replacement with inline controls. Or you can go for a replacement w/o inline controls.

u/MrEleventy · 2 pointsr/headphones

You can buy a 3.5mm cable for almost the same price. LINK

u/crimson_713 · 2 pointsr/Metal

Sennheiser makes an incredible set of open back audiophile headphones that are my go-to for music. Open back, removable cable, high quality audiophile sound, and comfortable as fuck. They fit my big ass head with plenty of room to adjust in both directions. They're fairly durable, so long as you're not tossing them around or banging them against something. Mine have survived two drops, although I don't recommend testing it, haha.

I will say that the cables that come with the headphones aren't that great, so you might want to consider a replacement. They're a bit pricey, but they've finally dropped under $150USD. They were $189.99 when I bought them, and now they're $139.99. Hell of a deal for the quality.

u/D4rk_N1nj4 · 2 pointsr/headphones

Looking for an adapter for my 598Cs's 6.3mm cable. Looks like the cable is 2.5mm TRRS to 6.3mm. I need an adapter that converts that 6.3mm to 3.5mm. I purchased this one a few weeks ago, but it didn't work at all.

Someone suggested yesterday that I might need one that converts to TRRS, but that seems near impossible to find, and the few I can find seem sketchy and expensive (here and here). I'm at a bit of a loss so any help to find this adapter or something that works would be great. If I can't find anything here, I'm gonna go into a BestBuy or Guitar Center and ask around if they might be able to help.

EDIT: Been thinking about it more and is my issue that the cable is TRRS and therefore converting that to be just sound is impossible? Should I get a new cable like this?

u/Kerry56 · 2 pointsr/headphones

I don't see any reason why you can't replace your cable as you wish. Just make sure the 2.5mm end has the same type of twist-lock as the original. Here is the first one that came up on a Google search. This one comes in four different lengths.

u/Archlicht · 2 pointsr/Vive

This is the reason I didn't buy a pair of Sennheisers. Shortest cable I could find to work with them is 4 ft. Although I suppose if you keep it coiled it won't be horrendous.


u/tusca99 · 2 pointsr/headphones

Why not just buy another cable? You won't get much better sound than your hd598s, buying an aftermarket cable like this (https://www.amazon.com/NewFantasia-Replacement-Upgrade-Sennheiser-Headphones/dp/B00KAKBHKM/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1523042550&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=hd599+cable&psc=1) would save you money that can be spent on something that you don't have

u/ThatGuyNicholas · 2 pointsr/sennheiser

Had this for my 598s and they come in some pretty decent length https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KAKBHKM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_vitwDbZ6HK4CE

u/ExEvolution · 1 pointr/lifehacks

Yeah, I have Sennheiser HD 518s, and I bought a replacement cable for them on Amazon with a tightly wound spring around the end.

I don't see this cable breaking for a long time.

u/MN_Se7en · 1 pointr/headphones

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00KAKBHKM/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1448995614&sr=8-1&pi=SX200_QL40&keywords=hd+598+replacement+cable&dpPl=1&dpID=51rijznZM4L&ref=plSrch is the cable i got. I got it solely for the fact that it is braided, and I think that braided cables are much more aesthetically pleasing than rubber cables.

u/theracetowin · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Since people are talking about cord length, I thought I'd chime in with a small recommendation. If anyone is interested, I purchased these awesome cables for my 598SEs. Just the right length and excellent and sturdy fit. Might be a good rec for those looking to replace the cables that come with these headphones.

u/aabeba · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I have a pair and they've got fantastic instrument separation. If you lie down in the dark and focus on the track, you can very clearly distinguish every note that every part plays (probably to the point where you'd be able to transcribe the music quite accurately). I would not quantify the bass as weak; it has punch, even if not earth-shaking.

However, they have a laid back feel - they might feel slow for someone listening to fast, dynamic, lively music. They're great for anything, but if you discriminate and need the phones to closely suit the genre, then these are probably best for classical, jazz and movies.

They're also larger than the ATH M-series phones, but are said to be more comfortable because of their lesser headband clamping force.

But with regard to what you said, though I got mine for $99, $156 is still half price, a fantastic value.

One final caveat - the HD 598 phones come with a detachable 3.5 mm-in 6.3 mm-out cable, which will not be connectible to a computer or portable music player, and you'll have to resort to the included adaptor, which may be impractical for some users. This cable would alleviate that problem ($16).

u/amisamiamiam · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I got the m50's for Christmas, the right ear pad was sewn smaller than the left making my ear get pinched. Sent em' back and upgraded to the M50x's. These are sweet headphones.

In my research I saw a post that said upgrading the speaker wires improves the soundstage. Sounds like stuffy audiophile stuff, so of course I was all in. I ordered these:

Waiting for both from Amazon. Can't wait. I wish it came with the protective case tho.

u/revel2k9 · 1 pointr/Vive

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KAKBHKM?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00 has removable cables so i ordered this one with it. just over 3 ft, really nice quality braided cable

u/6x9equals42 · 1 pointr/buildapc

It shouldn't be a problem unless you accidentally hit it or something, but it is pretty bulky if you were planning on using these with a portable device. I got this replacement cable and it works great.

u/beigemore · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I paid about $90 for these last year. They're not jaw dropping, but they sound "good". I did have to buy a longer cable, though. Ended up with this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KAKBHKM

u/wescotte · 1 pointr/Vive

I was looking for one too but had no luck. I just purchased this a few minutes ago and am going to modify it so it's shorter. It looks like I might get lucky and the 3.5mm end might unscrew and I can simply reuse the connector after I cut a few feet off the cable.

u/__redruM · 1 pointr/sennheiser

An adapter should have come with the cable, but if it did not, Amazon suggested this cable.

u/Jim_E_Hat · 1 pointr/headphones

Here's the one I got. Nice quality. Probably available cheaper on ebay.
EDIT: Yup, better price here, looks the same. Also, e-packet which is pretty quick (<2 weeks).

u/UserNotSpecified · 1 pointr/headphones

This cable seems to get recommended quite a lot around here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KAKBHKM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_oHHnybQG0DMJ1

I plan on buying one soon to use with my 598's.

u/Mutant_Justin · 1 pointr/headphones

My dog managed to break the audio plug on my HD598cs. I was wondering if this would be a good replacement for it.

u/StayFrosty7 · 1 pointr/headphones

This is what I use with my 598 when I'm not at my PC. However, these should hit all of your requirements.

u/JustDownloadMoreRAM · 1 pointr/headphones

What are you trying to accomplish? The terminal inside the headphone is 2.5mm, that adapter is backwards if you're wanting to plug a 3.5mm cord directly into the headphone.

I bought the shorter cord directly from Sennheiser a couple years ago, no issues other than the cord is very microphonic. It's not exactly what you want but it's an elegant solution. Something like this would also work, no experience with that brand though.

u/EvFire · 1 pointr/headphones

Not sure if you are looking for a custom cable with high quality copper or something but I have been using this cable for years now and it has been great, they offer a wide range of sizes too. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KAKBHKM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_0PJ0Db6ZMXKMX

u/chouetteonair · 1 pointr/headphones

1.2 m/4 ft would be your best bet.

u/ChumleeAdama · 1 pointr/headphones

Hmm, think this will be fine for 559s? I just don't want the adapter jutting out a bunch.

u/techie1980 · 1 pointr/sennheiser

I used this: https://www.amazon.com/NewFantasia-Replacement-Upgrade-Sennheiser-Headphones/dp/B00KAKBHKM. I am really happy with the quality, and the extra length.

u/nucular_realitor · 1 pointr/talesfromtechsupport

You can buy replacement cables for those, by the way. I had the same issue with my HD558s and got a replacement cable on Amazon for about $20. The cable is a reasonable length, too, unlike the one which came with the headphones that seems to be 20 feet long.

Here's one on Amazon for less than $20.

u/Jedi_Pacman · 1 pointr/headphones

Hi, I am thinking of purchasing this Newfantasia replacement cable for my HD 598s, but some of the reviews mention a downgrade in sound quality.

Do any of you guys have this cable and was there really a loss in sound quality? Thanks.

u/WantingInformation · 1 pointr/headphones

Don't have a HD598 but seen this one recommended https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Audio-upgrade-Sennheiser-Headphones/dp/B00KAKBHKM has an adapter for a bigger size with it too.

u/disgrace86 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I use the headphone jack on the front of my tower and with the adapter, it was sticking out way too far for my liking. Felt like it was just a matter of time before I would accidentally hit it and bend/break it. Also, the length of the cable was super long, I had to roll half of it up just to keep it out of the way.

I ended up getting this:


Solved both my problems of the adapter sticking out and the cable was just the right length.
Edit: Braided cable is nice too :p

u/BigMeatyClaws · 1 pointr/headphones

That was mostly a joke since I didn't see a budget you were aiming for. You would be fine buying something like this on amazon.

u/zakabog · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

That's not a proprietary connector it's an industry standard on high quality headphones and it's been around for decades. Just replace that cable with one that has a 3.5mm connector.

u/CrossbowDemon · 1 pointr/mechanicalheadpens

NewFantasia 1.2m replacement cable The jack on the end is a standard sized 3.5mm and comes with a screw on 6.3mm adapter for stuff like amps or audio interfaces. If you look around you can also find other cables with mics or angled connecters, braided, or not braided.

u/spalding1250 · 1 pointr/headphones

Is it wrapped in that plastic sleeve stuff (don't know what it's called)?

Like this HD598 cable on Amazon

u/Hallux · 1 pointr/HeadphoneAdvice

I meant is the original cable that inserts into the earpiece replaceable? It's super long and always snagging on my computer chair, who tf needs 10 feet of cord haha

I haven't figured out how to swap it out but I'll try with this cord, lets hope it works...

u/TirelessEthan · 1 pointr/headphones

I'm not really sure what I should be looking for

This is all I kind find but its just a replacement for the already fat jack I have:


u/BroJSimpson · 1 pointr/indieheads

Oh, no. Not at all. I definitely would not be able to do that myself. The cord just clips out if you turn it to the left where they attach to the over-ear phones. And then you can just click any cable into it. I got this one here.

So to my knowledge, there are some bad quality replacement wires with a mic for both iphone and andriod, but like i said bad quality. There is not much you can do other than buy a cable without a mic, if that is what you want. I bought this wire and it works like a charm.


Good luck!

The default cable they provide does not work with headphones, as it's actually the larger plug (what are they, 6.5mm?), with a 3.5mm adapter. You can buy a different cable from these guys, which will fit much better, or mod the headset to accept 3.5mm cables (requires removing the locking mechanism).

Context to link: already own this cord for my headphones, but it's starting to wear out, so I saved the link for later.

John was a headphone enthusiast. He was constantly upgrading his DACs and headphones, but he always settled with one pair in the end. His Sennheiser HD 598s. Even with a vintage look and minor cosmetic damage, John loved them very much, but had one problem with them. The cord kept on breaking. John babied his headphone cords, but his HD 598s kept losing audio in one side, forcing him to buy a new cord. John was discussing his problem with his co-workers, who suggested buying a knock off cord on amazon. John found a cord that had a weaved covering and decided to try it. Since then, he has not purchased any new cords, but he found a better headphone and decided to use that instead.

For those that are concerned with having to use a adapter for 3.5 jacks, you can buy a replacement cable such as this, or some other company. I have the HD598 SE (which came with the 3.5 cable), so have not given this particular company a try — but from reading the reviews it seems theirs is better than the original Sennheiser replacement cables.

Thanks for the info and no I don't need the mic or button. I see many cables have a bigger end for audio systems and I can't use that, it has to fit a regular headphone jack.

Like here is one: https://www.amazon.com/NewFantasia-Replacement-Upgrade-Sennheiser-Headphones/dp/B00KAKBHKM/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1538104814&sr=8-3&keywords=hd+569+cable

I'm almost positive that bigger end will not fit a normal jack. Lol I have no idea what to get sad it's a waste of headphones will have to just sell.

You can buy this adapter or any of these cables.

> wich where supposed to come with 2 cables

Only the Special Edition comes with 2 cables AFAIK

Anyway, there are shorter replacement cables available.

Aftermarket cable

As far as the THX00 is concerned, you could braid it. Or loop it, fix it with zipties and hide the loop somewhere.

Hello! I am using the senny 598's with a magni/modi combo, I want a replacement cord so I don't have to use the original one. I was gonna buy this one but I read in the reviews (and saw for myself) that it has 2 rings on the small connector instead of the original one that has 3 rings. Will that make a difference that is I will notice? Thanks <3

Sennheisers are a very solid choice. I'm going to use my Senn HD 598s with my headset. You'll need to get a short cable with a 1/8" jack, though. The 518s only come with a 10' long cable with a 1/4" jack, and 1/4" to 1/8" adapters are enormous.
