Hello gents,

I'm requiring a fairly long headphone cable and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions up to around $100 or less.

I'm running a Linear Tube Audio MZ2 amp to Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros. I'll require a cable with 3.5mm to 1/4" (6.35mm)

Thanks!

cause wireless works well with a tube amp and $300+ wired headphone? :roll:

OP – outside the extension found at Long & McQuade, you could contact Gene at Take Five Audio. He can either make an extension or perhaps make a full length custom cable at your desired length. Although I’m pretty sure the later will exceed your budget.

I'm not quite on board with wireless sound quality yet. Thanks.

Thanks boys. My main concern is maintaining decent sound quality. Wasn't sure if it's as crucial as speaker cable tends to be.

Maybe I will give TakeFive a shout, I actually just picked up some speaker cable form him. Knowledgeable, patient guy for sure!
