They sound good, i like a balanced sound, but if the highs are there then the more bass the better. I hope i win them. Saving for a new bike (was saving for a car, im 15) and saving every penny i get and cant afford or justify the cost of a good pair of headphones to use at home, as good as LW's, but the isolation becomes annoying to me and my family!
--

Nice rig above. Does the cable come straight out of the amp? Wired/soldered on?

--

Get pics up germ! were the connectors hard to get? SK says the LW ones are hard to solder. Test cables coming around to me soon! Less microphonics i hope and thats about it! Be nice to form some opinions on cables and how they can change the sound...2 or 3 different types coming to me!

--

Pics when they come, dunno when though. Not often pics from me, content with portable now i have fixed my d2 and fitted a white casing, just want a pair of headphones for home use and maybe a better DAC/Amp that is battery powered and can be used with portable unlike mine, hopfully as good as the UC with the very sensetive LW's, i like no hiss! Cant afford a pred or pico, so i doubt much can be better than the U Control, its top bang for buck, especially with high sensetivity phones.

Then im done until when im older and have money for better gear. Cant have a toob amp though, travel from mums and dads and also listen in different places of the house (pc at mums, or laptop around the house, laptop at dads around the house) so a small portable amp/dac that will be better than the U Control and can be used with the D2 occasionally maybe in bed with the headphones, not IEM's.

mrdeadfolx,

I have yet to take pics and right now I am at work.

I will say that this cable uses cyro'd copper in clear PE dielectric. Really looks fanatastic.

The stuff I ordered is a super highly standed teflon coated wire in a smaller gauge and uses a combo of silver and copper, though mostly silver). That is all I am saying!


BTW: The connectors are hand made and thus the reason for the time involved in making the cable. Those connectors are a major PIA!!!!! However, I made my connectors using silver plated brass for the pins.

I can say that i built a senn cable from pretty much the pins up and it was FAR easier.

Have you posted about your Senn recable project? I'd love to see a write up for both, as I am interested in doing both projects myself

Can you at least tell us where you got your supplies?

It is soldered on 3.5 jack pins inside. It is my first portable rig which can stand as well as lie.

edit: nm figured it out.

It's not an iMod, so no caps needed.

Oh, thats why, no external jacks sticking up apart from the out at the top! Great Idea!

For the senn plugs I deconstruted a senn cable and then melted the plastic and made a little mold out of silly putty and put the cable w/ the wires in the little mold and did each little half. I did only mold the distancer between the pins (the part that fits in the inner area of the plug) I did leave a bit iof the pins exposed at the ends and built up the rest in layers of adhesive and regular heat shrink. The result is a much more flexible connection near the face that is just as stable.

I am working on a way to mold the connectors for the FreQ cable so that it is a bit more supportive of the pins.

I think that I need to make a set of molds for each because the cardas, while very nice, are a bit too expensive for me ATM. Plus, I didn't want to do a covered area dn the orginal HD580 cable I had was pretty bad.

Custom replacable cable for SuperFreQ

Teaser Pics:

FreQ cable using 22 AWG Cryo copper in PE dielectric (unfortunately using the last of my stock.... 1M length.

In My ear:


See the shaped cable:


The cable is not as stiff as it looks, but not nearly as flexible as the stock cable. Works extremely well! I can't wait to try the silver stuff I have coming in.

That is quite a thick cable on those IEMs. I love it... Looks bad azz!

How are you getting along with only 1m of cable? Is it long enough to carry your DAP in the pocket comfortably without any tugging?
