Headphones extension lead
English

Hi Guys,

This may sound like a silly question.........but I want to get and extension lead for my AKG K451 headphones for use with my amp (sleeping baby and wife upstairs).  Are there extension leads that would affect the quality of the sound through the headphones?  If so, can anybody recommend any?

Cheers guys.

How long do you want the extension lead to be?

Grado do an extension cable.  Works well for me.

Further to the Grado recommendation, I'm sure when I got mine the bumph said you could run a maximum 3 extensions with no loss in quality....... Handy if you live in a town house and your system is on the ground floor but you want to listen in bed. Smile
