          Comments about AKG EK500S Detachable Coiled Replacement Headphone Cable:

          the cables on AKG headphones are pretty bad and they short out from repeated studio use. luckily, they easily detach and can be replaced. The EK300 cable came with the original headphones i bought, and the EK500 cable is by far a much more rugged construction, especially at the connector. the length is longer than the EK300 cable, but it is coiled, so in a way it is actually shorter, unless you stretch it out. i guess it's designed more for DJ use, but it does the job i need it to do, and hopefully it will last longer than the original cables.

            Comments about AKG EK500S Detachable Coiled Replacement Headphone Cable:

            I used to use the original cord for my K702s. It was too long; I had to wind it up. However, I kept tugging on it by accident and over time the cord got frayed. I use my K702s A LOT; 5+ hours a day. My K702s are connected to my amp, which is about 2 feet away, so I no longer needed a long cord. The EK500s at it's coiled length, is short, but that's perfect for me. There are no more risks of me tugging at it. It is perfect for what I do.

              Good quality coiled cable replacement for my akg 702. I'm not scared anymore to break the cable under the wheels of my chair since the cable is knot free and easy to stowe. Good product for messy people like me.

              The AKG coiled cable makes a big difference for me. It's comfortable and easily manageable. No entanglement and that's number one for me. I use it every single day because I work as a radio Broadcaster.

                    I got this cable to replace the original AKG K702 long cable. The cable is plastic coated,picks up any vibrations and transmits them into the headphones. Not a good product, stick with the original cable.

                      Sound Devices 302 &/or 442 mixer owners can use this (as well as it's sister cable the EK300) as a 'Tape Out' cable. They are, as far as I know, the only factory molded TA3 (mini-XLR) to 3.5mm (1/8") mini-jack cables on the market - & gold plated to boot! All others on the market are hand made & soldered.

                      However one important note on the wiring of this cable: it switches the left & right channels around. So long as this isn't a problem it makes the perfect Sound Devices 'Tape Out' cable & is in fact cheaper than others on the market too. Highly durable & high quality. I've been using my EK300 for over a year now, on a daily basis, without a single problem.
