    Cant decide whether to get the 1.5m or 3m headphone wire. Any suggestions?

    As most people would tell you it's all about the girth, but then again you gotta have some length too otherwise it doesn't work too well. The 1.5m serves me fine

    Get a longer one if you play out/have vinyl scattered all around your room, gives you a bit more leway. Can always use one of those ties you get for bread etc to wrap some of it together

    How about a 1.5 and an extension cord for when you need it...

    Get one of those 1.5m coiled cables. They'll extend to 3m when you need to reach, and when you dont, its tidy.

    I went with the 3m. The tangling does annoy me but I also dont wanna be pulling the mixer off the stage when I turn around. Did want the coiled one but dont really want to spend £50 on a headphone wire. Especially when this is the 3rd one ive bought!
