HD800 balanced cable recommendation

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a balanced cable replacement for the Sennheiser HD800. I have narrowed my search down to two cables: the Lawton Audio Adrenaline and the Double Helix Compliment. I wanted to see if anyone has an opportunity to compare these two cables and what your recommmendation might be. Thanks

how did you narrow your search to those - i mean, how did you eliminate SAA, Moon Audio, APS, Cardas.

If you wait a few day I can give you my opinion on the DHC Complement. I am waiting form mine right now. It should be here by the end of the week or so.
Another headfier friend of mine has them wit the Moon Audio Blue Dragon and he likes them.

The DHC Complement is by far the best headphone cable I've heard or owned.

Gold! No, no, no, no. Silver and Copper both conduct better than gold. You want some kinda superconductor and a method of cooling it. Far far better.

there are lots of cables out there. impossible to say which is best. just have to try one. if it sounds good, then probably no real reason to try another.

Try re-terminating the stock cable.

I rate the re-terminated stock to be very, very good.

I don't agree with that. I was very happy with my previous cable until I heard my current one. There was no comparison. Either my current cable is doing something amazingly right, or the previous cable is doing something very wrong, or maybe it's a bit of both. I was shocked at how much of a difference there was, because other headphone cables and interconnects I've heard didn't have that striking a difference between them.
