What Models Are Available For Cabling Upgrades?
The headphone models below are available for 'custom' re-cabling performed here at our HeadRoom facility. The stock factory headphone cable is completely removed and an upgraded Cardas/ HeadRoom 'Fat Pipe' cable is permanently attached to your headphones.
The headphones listed below provide 'after-market' cable upgrades. Owners can simply purchase the upgraded headphone cord desired and do a change-over in seconds thanks to these models' quick-detach cables. Please see Upgraded Headphone Cables for HeadRoom 'after-market' cable offerings.
How Do I Get Re-cabled Headphones?
For all brands requiring a 'custom' recable job (DENON, Grado, AKG, Beyerdynamic), you may either purchase a brand-new set of recabled headphones direct from HeadRoom, OR you may send in your existing headphones to our facility to be recabled with Cardas 'Fat Pipe' cord.

How Much Does Recabling My Headphones Cost?
The basic cost is $249 for standard 10ft lengths of HeadRoom/Cardas 'Fat Pipe' headphone cord.
Shorter cord lengths will be slightly less; longer cord lengths will be slightly more. HeadRoom uses superb Neutrik connectors and Cardas solder on all our work. Please call our HeadRoom Sales Dept for an exact price quote and estimated ETA on your headphone recable work.
Which Headphone Cable Does HeadRoom Use?
HeadRoom exclusively employs Cardas Audio 'Fat Pipe' upgraded headphone cable manufactured in Bandon Oregon for all our in-house recabling jobs. Fat Pipe cord is unavailable elsewhere and is fabricated solely for HeadRoom by George Cardas to HeadRoom specifications. In comparison with other often much more expensive "boutique" after-market cabling, we have found it to be the lightest, most pliable, most durable -- and, of course, excellent sounding! -- headphone cabling in the industry today.
Some headphones can be recabled for balanced operation using the stock factory cable. We currently offer the Sennheiser HD800 and Beyerdynamic T1 with basic balanced plug re-termination on those headphones' uncommonly excellent stock factory cord.
How Long Does it Take for HeadRoom to Recable My Headphones?
While most headphone recable jobs are performed in 2 weeks, it could take up to 4~5 weeks to receive your upgraded recabled headphones back on your doorstep depending solely on the type of headphone, the actual headphone cabling re-work required at HeadRoom and the availability of cabling and/or needed parts. We'll provide you with an accurate lead time upon placing your order.
Once I have my headphones recabled to balanced drive, can I still listen to them in single-ended mode?
Yes. For those headphones that have a custom recable hard-wired into place, you will need a XLR balanced-to-single-ended adaptor for this specific purpose -- the HeadRoom XLR-1/4" accessory.
Do my recabled headphones come with a warranty?
Yes! The upgraded Cardas 'Fat Pipe' cable features a Lifetime HeadRoom Warranty on the cable as well as our installation work. The headphone manufacturer's original headphone warranty is not affected by having your headphones upgraded (note: the headphone warranty starts from the actual purchase date of the headphones). Any HeadRoom warranty issues or questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
