Well I finally cranked up my HE-5 with the APS balanced cable today (via the Phoenix) - and WOW. The balanced HE-5 with the APS cable sound much better than with the stock cable run single-ended - and I mean MUCH. I was shocked. A significant increase in openness, better high end smoothness, and more bass impact. I have no way to know how much is the cable itself and how much is the balanced drive - but this is a big step forward for the already good HE-5.
