I’ve got this Sennheiser HD201 about 3 yrs + ago, and I really love the sound of it. And I have produced all of my tracks with this headphone. You can read about its specs here
But after few years, signs of wear and tear occurred. First was the leathered cushion started to peal off, follow by the 3 meter long cable starting to crack.
Previously, I have shortened the cable since the cracked wires are somewhere near the headphone cups, so I just opened up the headphone and shortened the wires. I have done this for the past 2 times, and this time I decided to totally replace a brand new cable.
