Review: Double Helix Sennheiser Limited Edition cable - Page 3

post #31 of 101

Another Double Helix Endorsement

Just ordered a Double Helix Balanced for my Senn HD650s yesterday! Peter Bradstock is one of the most helpful audio craftsmen I've ever met. I will be running this new cable from a Ray Samuels Audio Apache (Rev. C) which I bought on Audiogon several weeks ago. The Apache, the Senns (now with the Cardas RCA cable) and this new 8' Double Helix are my first steps into audiophile headphone listening.

Had to abandon my Pass Aleph/Alon V amps & speakers because of deteriorating hearing (also bought some hearing aids for daily wear, to better hear the women in my life, TV, etc. ... but NOT for listening to music).

Peter is building for me an "Oro y Plata" (the silver plated wire promises to extend and clarify the Senns' upper mids and highs) with Xhadow Precision XLRs, ViaBlue Splitters top and bottom. I'm getting the Teflon over Siler Mylar Mylar sheathing. I am totally enthusiastic about my decision and recommend this guy to anyone searching for another quality option at the Stefan AudioArt, Zu Mobius, Moon SilverDragon level. Will post some pictures and a followup when I get my new cable.

I must move away to the land of HD580 cables and delicious chocolate.

I found out about Double Helix Cables and Peter by browsing Ebay. And through Ebay contacted him about making me a custom cable. My cable evolved from an SPC to a limited edition custom. Here is mine, 7 Ft.

My one concern was flexibility. Well for those also wondering, yes it's thicker than a normal cable. About 2-3 times, not much more than that. But it's very flexible considering its 4 UPOCC wires. I am very pleased with the flexibility and the workmanship. Did I mention it's quite light?

I'm afraid dealing with mbd2448 involves getting your hands dirty.
