overall look for my gadget, with DIY cable.
shorter one is canare cable, longer one custom made for HP890 is SATO cable (japan)
plugs are using some not so high end plug. as i cannot found 2.5mm plug that's really good. the small red things connected to my amp is Audiotrak Optoplay USB soundcard.

Canare cable, bought from some forumers. very nice quality / finish tough. i can't found the canare f-12 plug at jalan pasar. any one can tell me where can i buy it? to be specific, the name / location of the shop will be great. wink.gif

[outtopic] : Koss ksc75 drive. flex.gif

Kramel Mods : improve the high, but some how, i feel it's a little bit too bright. and bass feel less punchy now. how ever, i just tested it not over 2 hours.
will continue listen to it, and compare A/B with the one without mod.
glossary : kramel mods = drilling some extra holes at the plastic which cover the drive. so that to minimize the surface of the plastic. and allow more sound pass through. rolleyes.gif



PS : i bought several REAN 3.5mm plug at jalan pasar. but i cannot fit it in with canare cable. any audiophile can pls suggest me that what cable suitable to be put on the rean plug, and giving outstanding soundquality too? (the holes is slightly smaller than canare cable. i can't force it in) price won't be an issue as i won't really need long cable. probally i buy 1 meter only.and of course, cannot afford those 1 meter= RM 80 cable. =P budget around 1 meter = RM10-RM20, cable only.

sound quality : when paring with nice cable, sound stage of hp890 / koss ksc75 actually widen up.
how wide? i don't know how to describe.
overall : i am happy for
1. improvement of sound quality,
2. improvement of "outlook" . looks excited when see big big cable. rclxm9.gif
3. slightly more detail than normal cable.

and about canare L-4E6S cable + F-12 plug , according to Dinodog_jr, using his Sr60 (grado) on my amp. he claim that the bass and soundstage is improved for his SR60. and bass have quite noticeable different. how much different, ask him. whistling.gif



Poision part: Dinodog_JR. wanna come up and have a listen???? =P

haha..nice close-up shots..

I see that u connecting laptop>optoplay soundcard>headamp>headphone..
How is the sounds like?

anyway, if u guys wanna check clarity improvement in ur headamp. U can try wif speakers..haha.

I had compared two headamps here wif speakers. For me, it is much easier to analysis clarity difference than in headphone. Ok, this is just me..my another assumption.

p/s: yo..thx so much u oredi prepared a shorten cable for me. If can, i want a black sleeve. My player,headamp,headphone all in black color.

Good rubber shrinking job haha. Anyway i have a question for the experts. For subwoofer interconnect, is the digital coaxial 75ohm suitable for the job?

Also does anybody knows where to get good RCA connector in pasar road?

those cable are for myself, anyway, if u serios about buying one, do drop me a PM, about how long u want, wat cable u want. and i try to look for better plugs (even though this one is not bad, but i want better outlook.) and i quote u with price. but estimated wont be big different from the price with this.

i shrink it using my soldergun, so doesn't looks smooth. and perhaps cause by the quality of the shrink tube too. can't find those really high quality over pasar road. they have different colour, but all same brand, and made in china.

kramer.. hehehe don't really remember his name. about the mod. i really enjoy the sound after mod. how ever , it's a bit viel. those who feel itchy wanna mod, and don't dare to try. can come over to my place to have a listen the ksc75 AFTER mod. and if u like it, then baru mod.
total cost? i am not too sure as i bought a lot of things together... i did ask unit price. but couldn't remember than well. i buy a lot, then pay in total.... laugh.gif


editted: : by the way. the plug of canare (short, purple) is better.
the one use for SATO + sleeve is lower quality, and cheaper if i am not mistaken.

hp890 is quite comfort to wear. and those DIY cable aren't heavy too.
here's an ideal , i can wear Hp890, in normal room (fan, switch to no.4) for 3 hours plus, without feeling hot/discomfort. time, at night.

at the amp there?
that's for my hp890
don't know what is the brand. forgot. but it's made in japan, and have quite nice finish.


about KRamel mod: i drill another hole right at the center of the plastic after some time listening. and now the bass is ok, back to normal as before, and the clarity is some how improve.
before this middle hole were drill, (which is what u see at the picture above.) i was so unhappy about it, clarity is high, bass less punchy, and have some slight echo for mid. ( don't know it's real or not. or just what i think only.)
after that, i drill the middle hole, same size. and the bass is kinda back to normal.
and have better clarity now. i was addicted to the clarity of koss. =P so i kinda enjoy the clarity after kramel mod.
song i always listen with are "Chai Qin" song.
mainly slow song. some time , some rocks.

amirsubhi :
i think he is interested with ur starquad + f-12
he tried for a long time to get a nicecable already.

hyyam85
if u cannot buy it from amirsubhi, or he don't wanna sell it, u can drop me a PM. how many meter u want, what plug u want. i can do it for u.
price, will tell u after i go to pasar road to buy the part.
for best things, tell me how many meter u want, and what;s ur budget
if i go ask price, it's below ur budget, i will buy the part, and ask u to bank in to me / come COd with me, and i might do the cable infront of you straight away.


editted :
add in a picture : My Current "Portable" setup.
sony Bean + amp + koss Ksc75, can fit in my pocket nicely. =P perhaps the amp + short cable is much more suitable for ipod shuffle. hehee can buy an extra ipod case and glue it on the amp case.
user posted image
the bean were placed inside a black bag (from philips she9500 earphone) to prevent it is scratched by the case of headamp.

having the line out cable for ipods are better than minijacks to minijacks... the signal is more cleaner.
