@amir
F-12 is available in IC Electronics already...i went there and bought some time ago. not sure if its still available or stock finished again.

but there still aint any respectable right angle (L-shaped) stereo minis around ler...sigh

AS REQUESTED BY yeah_guyz...i posted this in the Sennheiser Thread.

QUOTE(mADmAN @ Jan 19 2007, 03:34 PM)
guys...just thought id share sumthing... a cheap way of improving/upgrading ur HD595s

i made 2 impedance adapters... 220 ohm and 100 ohm. and got my colleague to test it out on his rig which would be :
PC -> Philips PSC805 USB Soundcard -> Cardas HPI mini-mini -> GoVibe 5 (with Elpac 24V PSU) -> HD595

specs of the adapters
220ohm - taiwan made stereo mini/ canare L-4E6S/ 220ohm resistors/ some japan made mini female jack.

100ohm - neurtik/ REAN plugs (the low end ones)/ canare L-4E6S/ 100ohm resistors/ some japan made mini female jack.

so i handed it over to him and when he tested the 220ohms (total 270ohms) he was so happy that his cans finally had bass LOL. and couldnt stop saying "my cans finally have boom boom!!". even i was shocked (ive always disliked the 595 for the lack of bass). but he did say the mids and highs were a little recessed now. most likely caused by the lack of volume i guess.

i just gave him another adapter for 100ohms (total 150ohms) a few hours ago to test and he said it sounds even better as its more balanced than the 220ohms. the word "wow" actually came out of his mouth. and he still raving about how good his cans sounds

the adapters on my 250ohm DT990 made almost no difference honestly. only prominent difference would be the volume level. ive yet to try the adapters on my Philips HP250 (32ohms i think) to test it out.

as for pix... i aint gonna post them up as theyre too ugly they just dont do my previous DIY cable works any justice hehehe.

i remember reading in head-fi that the higher the resistance (impedance) the cleaner the sound as it will block out "noise" as well from going to the drivers making the sound "cleaner". not sure how true this is though. but its one of the reasons i decided to give it a try and made the impedance adapters.

i remember reading EFN mentioning his impedance adapter also made a significant improvement (cant remember exactly what improvement) with his LDM+ paired with Grado. also another reason y i decided to give it a try.

check it out....

this cable is a 3-wire rounded braid. was initially thinking of making a stereo mini-mini just for fun and to test to see how it sounds...but i couldnt find a plug where the cable would fit the barrel...

the cables are so thick that it cant even fit through the barrel of the Canare F12!!!! shocking.gif all the braiding work wasted sad.gif

as for what cables they are... theyre spare speaker cables from my car's previous ICE system laugh.gif
