first initial superficial impressions.
ATH=ESW11 with Hifi-M8, ipod touch 5G with Flacplayer app.
More fuller, everything seems tighter.
A step up from the original Venturecraft lightning cable to be sure.
It is a richer sound with critical listening.
Keep in mind at this point improvements are incremental.
original:light sound, more separation of low and highs, bass is tame.
New: Everything is more forward, good separation-but more even sound/volume...
