FYI--The TWag changes until about 300 hours. 150 will get you most of the way there, but the next 150 after that will allow the wire to really open up.

Peace,

I don't claim to be a guru (beware of those who do). I am just a guy, with a lot of experience, who works hard to develop top flight products.

FWIW--The above was part of my goal when designing TWag. Stranded and SC both have their place, however, for IEM cable, stranded tends to be more "friendly" when on the go.

Seriously, if the TWag is as good as the SCSCag was with my JH13s, I will be extremely happy!

i just recieved my scscag ue11/jh13 cables today and this cable blows me away! it makes me realize how really bad the stock cable is.
the scscag does everything right,except for being a little stiff.
now im wondering if i should buy a twag also

To Decur, you say the new cable 'blows away' the stock cable and 'the scscag does everything right.'

What is improved? and how?

Very interested for you to elaborate on this.

TWag is pretty flexible, but it isn't as "limp" as the OEM cable.

It sure is "purdy", though.
(especially with a black Nano / RSA Shadow rig)

Burn-in status report:
passing 48 hours - it still hasn't opened up.
(I know, I know - I'll wait - albeit, impatiently - for the 150 hour mark)

1st thing,im using imod>alo super cotton 6 shooter silver dock>alo portable v-cap dock>apuresound mini to mini>alo rx amp>ue-11 iems.
the stock ue11 is the weak link to my portable rig by choking and not letting "all"the music through. the scscag really opens up my ue-11 like a waterflow of music versus a trinkle of music. 2nd ,the ue11 has a hopped up bass that over powers the mids and highs on some genres and songs.the scscag has really tightened up the bass(no more flabby farting bass with the stock cable)
ok now the icing on the cake! most silver cables out there are very cold and sterile sounding! not these! the scscag is warm,lush and very musical

Just send Craig an email about the TWag for my JH13. Didn't really want to spend the extra $100 over the SCSCag but decided the flexibility will be worth it since i use these on the go as well as at home. Probably best to not be constantly swapping wires as the connectors must be pretty fragile given their size.

i also sent craig an email, gonna get TWag LOD and TWag recable for the JH 13s i just ordered today. Cant wait to hear back from him.

OT: anyone know a good place to get glass core optical cables?
post #29 of 114
Ordered the TWag cable for my Triple Fi.s today. The TWcu i owned previously is too bulky. Craig mentioned the Twag is WAY more flexible and suitable for making earphone cables.

Nice Work Lee. By looking at the pictures of the wire, i know it will be awesome.


The Y-Splitter is so~~ sexy..

I finally ordered my first set of nice cables from craig. Man, what a great guy to work with huh? got myself a TWag LOD, TWag cables for the jh 13's ive got ordered, and them a TWag 12 foot long interconnect to go fro my DAC to my amp

ive never been a big believer in cables, but i figured if i was gonna give it a shot, i might as well go all out, and whats the point in running fancy cables from jack to ear, if from the dac to the amp would be generic cables??

ill let everyone know what i think of them once i get the enw headphones and amp i the mail. Thoug the amp is the pico slim, so it may be a bit.
