[Request] Sennheiser 598 third party inline volume control cable??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, today I got my very own 598's from sennheiser, and I got to say, I am loving them so far. Only thing I dislike about these headphones is the lack of a inline volume control, and due to the design of these headphones, the cable has a detachable feature which you can twist and remove. Now this causes an issue for people who want to get a third party inline volume control cable to use instead. (I would like to note that when removed, it is fitted inside somewhat far, so the 3.5 jack has to be pretty long for it to fit. Not only that, it has to be either the perfect size or smaller in terms of width to get inside the hole as well.)

Does anyone have a suggestion? I would really like to remove the cable I have now and replace it with a inline volume control cable which will fit and work normally.

Thanks wink.gif

Unless Senn comes up with something on their own you're out of luck for two reasons:

1. The 598 is open-back, thus not meant to be used portably. Most headphones with a mic/volume control on the cable are either for gaming or for use with smartphones on the go - both of which are not the 598's design goal.

2. Adding something onto the cable WILL affect sound quality, while most aftermarket cables try to be as pure as possible.

And trust me you do NOT want a volume control cable at all. Get an amp instead, and you can adjust the volume with the amp's volume knob.
