NullAudio Enyo Custom Cable Review (Massive Pics!) - Page 3

post #31 of 115
The harshness could have been the the result of bad synergy which the cable fixed by altering the impedence

I got a great deal on my ES3X's... I actually just came back from the Audiologist from getting my impressions done.

$750 Total! Which included (impressions, shipping, and tax)

Hey thanks for answering my question!

Anyway, I need to clarify a thing, Enyo cable is actually made of Silver or Copper?

When they mentioned 'Enyo Silver Upgrade cable', does it mean it's made of Silver? It also said that it's made of 7 core silverwire.. Where do you guys see that it's made of copper?

Thanks in advance!

Just got my Lune cable for the JH13.

To early to comment on audio as treble is def constrained - Wait for a few hours of burn in.

Using iPod 5.5G to Lisa III.

Fit and finish excellent.

No issue with force to insert pins into JH13s. easy in and out - no feeling of damage to female of connector.

I went for the nylob covering from the Y piece down.

Will post pics within 24 hours.

So far, impressed.

Regards

Awesome! on the enyo and the lune series part, i believe the enyo is a copper cable, and the Lune series is a silver cable. But both use silver for the soldering parts, i think it prevents the connection of the soldering to deteriorate to enhance the longevity of the cable.

Hey guys, I thought I was waiting for a burn in result. I was getting a base that had impact but no sustained bass. So what was happening?
I am totally aware of the loss of base from speakers with a mixed polarity feed. The bass disappears as the sounds waves cancel out.

I was not expecting this to be the result on IEMs. I was following an earlier post that said both 'dots' on the connectors should face in. Wrong. When I switched one around I was treated to a much better than standard cable sound.

The setup I have used the most to enjoy a hiss free experience is an iPod 5.5G to the iBasso D10 on standard opamps. I get mobile phone interference but the sound is so so sweet.

More audio comments later but I wanted to share that cable connection experience with you. I do not believe it is caused by the ear hearing the phase mismatch, but the cable shares a common earth and does some voltage canceling.

Very happy with the money spent on this quality produced cable. More delicate that the standard but definitely an upgrade.

You know, due to the cables are DIY. The dots could have been placed on the wrong side, or the connectors were flipped around. For the Enyo and Lune, it's clearly hat the dots face in or the silicon guides would go the wrong way. It could be possible that the female connectors of you monitors were placed backwards, so the polarity of the female connectors acceptance is backwards. Cause like i said, if your statement was true, the silicone guides on the enyo would go the other way making it not usable.

Also, more delicate than the standard? i find it much better build that the standard, the only weak part i see is the heatshrink cover used on the connectors.

Not sure if you've really gone over looking at the cable, but looking at how tightly twisted it is, and the material they use to make the material. It's definitely a better built cable than the standard twist.

Since normal clear cables start to turn green after a while, does the Lune silver cable have this problem as well?
post #39 of 115
How well do they "fold up", i.e., how you roll the cables up for transport? Probably nor as well as the JH13 stock, right?
post #40 of 115
Hi all.

My comments on the cable were not intended to say this is badly made.

1 dots on the wrong sides - no worries.
2 cable twist is superb, but it is more fragile as the thin cable can easily get a kink that maynot come out easily.
3 I certainly wouldn't want to wind this up and throw it in my pocket compared to the original JH cable.
4 I would not expect this to change colour as the white part appears to be a teflon coating that will stay white. The only clear part is that which goes over the ear.
5 there is a bit of microphonics from the sheath coating. Not a lot but more than the zero from stock cable.

All in all I am very happy with the sonics of this cable. I will use this at home and probably get a black JH cable for out and about use.

Regards

Thanks, Sceptre for your post. #3 above is exactly what I thought. I like your idea of a Null audio for home and the stock for running about. My only worry is if one switches cables a lot could/would this effect the integrity of the fit of pins and cables?

I do not feel that there would be any degredation of the pins and their sockets. Nothing goes beyond their normal spring action - no stressing or widening.

Took the Lune's on the train and tube today - no kinks on the thin wire but I was careful to wrap the cable away each time.

Anyone here has Whiplash Audio's SCSCag IEM cable? How does it compare to the NullAudio Lune?
post #44 of 115
I heard the Whiplash IEM cable and I must say that I am impressed, it really opens everything up. The only downside is that he uses solid core wire, so the wire is rather stiff. It may be bothersome at first, but you get used to it, and it is so worth it!
