I bought this setup to use at work and I just got put on approved overtime (= paid) for the next 4-6 months. Maybe longer. So I will have plenty of opportunity to properly burn it all in.

Be prepare to be blown away! The T1/Zeus combination with the Woo is magical. I have never listened my T1/Zeus better than with my Woo WA5-LE. Your next step should be WireWorld interconnects and them Power Cords.

I am using the Eclipse 6 (analog), Silver Starlight 6 (digital) and Electra 5 (Power) and they are awesome.

Congrats!

This recabling looks really stunningly good for the niche market that will be interested in paying a premium for such an aesthetic appeal.

 

Nice to see they have the HP's like the Sony SA-5000 and JVC DX1000 in their collection as well - http://aphroditecu29.com/Audiophile_Headphones/Audiophile_Headphones.aspx

Is not only looks. The cable really improves the sound. I have my T1, HE-6, HD800 and DX1000 with it. I was about to sale the T1 because I found them sibilant and with compressed soundstage in stock from. Robert convinced me to let him recable them with the Zeus (My T1 were the first headphones with the Zeus) and totally change their sound to the better. Same kind of improvement in my HD800 and even more noticeable with my DX1000. I was keeping the DX1000 just because of looks and not sound. I was funding them with a bass overpowering the rest of the frequencies in many recordings and with a honkey sound in the midrange (specially in voices) that I did not like. After the Zeus the sound it balanced and clean.

 

I know people don't believe cables make a difference.. that's fine I respect that but I think they do and I am happy with my headphones now.

I have a pair of HD800 recabled by Robert and without a single doubt , they are the best headphones I have ever heard. I have listened to K1000, T1, GS1000, D7000, HE5LE, HD650, 600, RS1, k340, LCD2 , DT880 and a few others, nothing come close.

Robert's workmanship is first class all the way and the sound is even better, his costumer service is like no other in the industry.

Let me get this straight... $500 for a headphone cable? With shipping or without, or should I ship my T1 to him to do the job and then to receive it back?

It really looks fantastic, there is probably a lot improvement in sound quality, but for that price, is it worth it?

 

Is there any way for him to ship me that cable and to let me do all the work?

"$500 for a headphone cable?"

Hey, this is Fantasy Island. The Mumbo-Jumbo is more expensive here.

I am pretty sure you can just order the cable for you to make the installation. In my case I always send my headphones to him but I am just 2 days using Priority Post Office.

 

The internal wires are the same as the WireWorld Eclipse 7 interconnects and a 1 meter is $450.
