I also have a pair of 250 Linear II purchased from Ash a very long time ago. My problem is the cable has developed a fault, and I cannot find a replacement.

If I cannot replace the cable the ‘phones are of no use to me.  The pads are in good condition Wink

Must be about 7-8 years ago now. Shocked Time flies.

HD250, HD540 and HD560 models all use the same plug type. Source a model with the same OFC cable if you can. More flexible and physically less microphonic than the earlier steel-litz type. One reason I stopped restoring them was because parts became so difficult to source. Even less incentive to buy vintage Senns from Europe now due to Customs and VAT charges.

Hi Ash, yes, it was a long time ago. Thankyou for the info. I have been able to source the cables for my HD250 and HD580s as well as replacement pads for the 580s!

Really thought I might have to bin both pairs, which have been quite adequate for my use to date. I made the mistake of letting my grandsons use the ‘phones and they did not take the care in use that they should have, hence the damaged cables. Still, if I can wrest more use from them now that’s a good thing and saves the cost of sourcing new phones.

Best Regards


Les

Hi Les,

If you are or you know someone who's a dab hand a soldering then the Mogami 2893 copper cable has been cited by many as an alternative if you have no luck.

Hi Alex, thankyou but I have managed to find cables for both headphones and new pads for my HD580s.

Both sets are now back up and running and will hopefully last a few more years!
