Thanks for your impressions. I would hope that there would be some audible difference given the cost. I've yet to experience the differences cables can make on a phone, so I can't even begin to weigh in on the debate.
Later, due to balanced connection I have to get a recabled phone. That was the 1st time I realize how critical the cable is. Still, I only tried the very "low-end" (in terms of cost) cable and yet the change is so big. If you are like me (budget minded), you can try to ask some Headfier to recable that for much cheaper cost. If you really like the outcome, then you can jump for more expensive route. (like what I will do later)
