Effect Audio Ares II IEM cable

A short impression of the Effect Audio Ares II with JH5

Vitor Valeri

Pros: Comfort, sound, robustness and beauty

Cons: None

“The BTG-Audio Sunrise CIEM Cable Warning: This sophmoric review was written after repeated viewings of The Big Lebowski, and some may find it annoying. I am the walrus.   The Industry Abides...   We audiophiles (or whatever the hell we are), new to the hobby and old-timers alike, are living in a sort of golden age; the manufacturers have finally caught wind of the lengths people...” --doublea71

“ After spending some time with my Sennheiser HD650 headphones I knew it was time for an upgrade. I like these cans but I felt I could get better performance from a better cable than the stock that came with them. One of the advantages of a widely owned and acclaimed headphone is an active market for cables. Many choices are available. After reading extensively many forums and reviews I decided...” --longbowbbs

Cardas Sennheiser Replacement Cable For HD580, HD600 & HD650

“ I'm not big into cables making a huge difference. I feel like, more than any element of audiophilia, the differences can easily be mental and not really there. However, I feel like this cable really brought out the best in my 650s. The thickness and durability is great and I love that I bought a lengthy cable.    It might not be worth it to everyone, but it was for me. No regrets. ” --jchandler3

“INTRODUCTION: A couple of months back, I had a chance to compare a few IEM upgrade cables and, I realized a good upgrade cable could unlock the real potential of an IEM. Even before I ordered my Empire Ears Zeus Custom IEM, I was sure I wanted an upgrade cable to go with it. After all, I had read that Zeus scales higher with a good cable.   After some research I decided to buy a cable...” --EagleWings
