(this is a joke. just go buy a cable that looks nice to you and it would work just as well as the original)

It's a joke, but also the best reccomendation 😆

Get a cat. The cat will teach your son how to do it right. One try, one bite, the cable should be permanently damaged.

So my son (4) has been absentmindedly chewing on the cable for my HD560s and this is a new discovery, I only noticed when my Schiit Fulla wouldn't get recognized by my PC for some reason so there's a lot going on. So I guess now I'm just wondering if I should stick with a direct replacement or maybe a 3rd party cable? Thanks for any help.

My adoptive son (cat) has similarly chewed half a dozen cables. I had to replace a 569 cable just a few weeks ago. I suggest trying something nylon braided, he seems to leave that kind of cable alone. Soft chewy rubber is more appealing. New Fantasia is the cable brand that I’ve found to be pretty satisfactory shopping on Amazon, decent prices and solid build quality. It won’t matter for how the headphones sound.

569 is shit anyway 🤣

I like over ear headphones for cooler weather to keep my ears warm, and they do that job while being comfortable and decently portable. The Oratory EQ curve is wild, it looks like the waveform of a song, but it does the job to make them decent (plugged into Qudelix).

The options actually aren’t that extensive for closed back over-ears, suitable for outdoor use. That’s a space dominated by the consumer brands like Beats, Bose, and their headphones sound even worse and in addition are overpriced. Something like the Focal Bathys is tempting, but it’s just way more than I need, for what ends up being podcasts, most of the time.

I’ve just bought an Openheart cable from AliExpress. Quite impressed with the build quality, and it works just fine.

Get him some licorice laces - the appalling taste will stop him wanting to chew anything similar (licorice is the devil's sweetmeat)
