    Default Quality of headphone cable replacement a concern ..?

    Hey guys

    Recently my sennhesier hd 25-1 70q cable stopped working (2nd time in 10 years, not bad) and I'm going to buy a replacement, thing is they are so expensive!

    However I've found the same cable on eBay a lot cheaper. I'm guessing it's not official but should I be worried about quality in any way, will the cheaper cable make a difference to what I hear..?

    Thanks guys

    Would be interested in thoughts on this as well... One of my cables loses connection every so often and I was looking into replacements

    Headphone cables are pretty standard BUT you may hear a difference in volume if the cable isn't the same ohm rating as the original.

    If you've found the Zomo replacement cable, I'd say go for it.

    Their stuff is pretty damn good.
