Alex, great looking cables as usual !!!

I got a question for you, where exactly will you put the APureSound sleeve on the cable ? Directly on the plug ?

Congrats Alex! I will also recommend Alex for amp mods / repair, and know first hand he is very familiar with STAX and the Blue Hawaii, as well as Milletts / SOHA / M³... oh, and the occasional Zap Filter / source mod.

Balanced v3 order incoming... well, once I get some dynamic phones.

The heatshrink can go on a few possible different places depending on what termination type is going to be used on the cable. There are very many different terminations available.

The V2 cable was high grade silver plated copper wire. The V3 is not a plating. The construction of the wire is different so it is no longer a plating. This concept took around 2 years to design and months to be manufactured. In the end it was all very well worth it!

You are partly correct, but it is no longer a plating. There is in fact a lot more silver then copper in the V3, but so was the V2. I called the V2 wire silver plated copper because the idea of how the cable is constructed was familiar by many audiophiles and it was a plating.

Alex, a while ago you mentioned on this board that silver core cables are not good for headphone applications from durability perspective. How does your new design address fragile nature of the silver?
Thanks.

I didn't say silver core cables are bad. I said SOLID core cables are bad because they are fragile since it is just a single strand of wire. My cables do not use solid core wire.

I hope that clears up some things.

Thanks,
Alex

In what way is copper cored silver cable superior to just plain old silver cable?

Nice looking stuff btw, but that is nothing new from you.

One balanced V3 9 ft. cable with Furutech XLR plugs for installation on an R10, please.

From all the tests I have done through the years of design I would say the best part of it is that you don't have the harshness you sometimes get with pure silver wire and the amazing deep bass you get with copper is still there as well. The overall sound doesn't sound thin like with some of the pure silver wire out.

It is hard to compare as I have tried a hand full different grades of pure silver and each with different results, but though most of them were close.

I have someone taking over packing, shipping, and soon taking orders. I will continue to do all the builds and designs.

I am sorry to hear about that. I really am not a fan of most stock Grado cables. Let me know if I can be of a service to you.

Thanks,
Alex

[AK]Zip will do the work of installing the cable onto your headphones if you send them to him. That's essentially what the price table is, the cable cost and his installation.
Er i have to send my headphones to you guys to do it? Does that include postage return? Only for high end IEM headphones?

The V3 headphone cable is for all full size headphones. Anything from the AKG K701 to the Sennheiser HD650 to the Sony R10.

Some of these headphone don't require you to send in the headphones because they have a detachable cable. The Sennheiser HD650 and Qualia 010 are just to name a few.

This cable is not for IEM's at all. The only current IEM upgrade cable we offer is for the Etymotic ER4's.

Return shipping is not included in the price. Only the cost of the cable / labor is included in the price.

Thanks,
Alex
