Customer Question
I just bought the...

I just bought the Sennheiser 650 and Fostex 32 bit dac hp-a3 what cables do I need to order to use them with my iPad and iPhone?

Technician's Assistant: What Sennheiser model do you have?

650 headphones

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Sennheiser system?

Nothing as the cords do not fit into the usual slots for headphones

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

I never used anything but a simple pair of Sennheiser ear buds before.

I thought you needed to use a dac to improve / get best sound on sennheiser 650s when using with IPad/iPhone.

The headphones male end does not fit into the slot for ear phones. Do I need to order a special part?

Electronics Technician: Rusty, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

Yes, they are very common, and not very expensive. It's an 1/8" to 1/4" adapter, click here. You can get these at most music stores, or electronics stores.

The DAC has condensers, so it will definitely improve the sound like you are wanting.

Just to be clear, you do have a cable coming from your iPad that goes to optical, correct? As long as you get signal to your DAC, all you need is that simple headphone adapter. They are the same jack, just a different size.
