Ill thought out design flaw ruins this otherwise excellent cable
on 4 September 2013
Bought this as a replacement for my NS1000 headphones cable, where a terminal became loose.
Firstly, the sound is great, the plugs are very compact and fit the NS1000 socket perfectly. If that was it, I would have given 5 stars.
Unfortunately, Hama decided to wrap the entire cable length in a funky metal braid, presumably for aesthetic reasons. It worked - the cable looks very good indeed. The problem however, and it is a massive problem, it that whenever the cable moves, if coiled even one inch where two parts of the cable touch eachother, then a metallic grating sound travels the length of the cable into the cans of the headphones. Annoying is an understatement.
This cable is therefore an excellent buy if intending to use as an interconnect, but flawed of using as a headphone cable.
