They are fantastic cables that unmask details that non of my other cables have done. As is customary with all my cables, I have given the Red 500 hrs cooking time and have been rewarded with a transparent and wide open sound. Alex recommends 100 hrs but they didn't start to sound good till the 125 mark. A word of warning, it is a ruthlessly revealing wire and bad recordings will be shown up as just that.Great VFM and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone with a LCD-3.
Shame you are not selling as I am looking for a 2.1 headband for my 3s. Don't want to get rid of the leather headband though in case I decide to sell the phones at some point. Yes you are right, the older foam headband is much comfier.
My 3s were changed to fazor with 110 ohm drivers when one of the classic drivers failed. Sound wise there is more detail up top  and lows seem tighter but not as prominent and as I have mentioned in a previous post, you don't get the cavernous bass which in turn gave a huge headstage. Because of the more illuminated top end I sold my silver cable and bought a copper litz cable which has compensated a little in the lows, giving a more airey and textured (defined) bass.
Surprised this hasn't been snatched up, bargain price. Wish these came up in the UK.   Good luck with the sale.
Yes they do sound different, unfortunately the classic drivers suffer from reliability issues. I am happy with my fazor replacements but I do miss the cavernous bass of the classic.

You won't really be buying this amp, you'll just be "looking after it".   Added to bucket list.
This is a fabulous dac for the money and mine will remain in my system for a very long time. As I had him do for mine, for a small fee, Larry can change the mains voltage to 230v.   Good luck with the sale.
Thanks for your insight AiDee.
