Please tell me why you think it is a joke?   Mine seems to be working well.

It's made cheap. I was gifted a stock balanced cable, and it tore within only a few months. It is not worth $90 IMO (Audeze stock price). I almost bought another Audeze balanced on the FS forum for $45, but I ended up with a Charleston Cable Company LCD-2 4 pin balanced cable. It is really nice.

That makes no sense. How and why would you consider it cheap? If you do not have a viable reason behind your statement, it's nothing but an artifact.

And why would you "almost" buy it again if you thought it was of that quality.

Because its cheap. Not everyone wants to spend $100-$200 on a cable.

I thought you meant that the stock cable somehow degraded performance.

So basically you'd spend another 45.00 and then have it go bad on you yet again which would force you to get ANOTHER cable? Seems to me like you'd be spending much more than intended.

Alright I guess I'll just give my two cents.  The Audeze cable is probably not worth $80 but I don't think it was made so that they could make a huge profit but just so that when you got headphones you would have a cable that could connect to that fancy amp that you have.  It is free and comes with the headphones so who cares.  As for the ones they sell on their website I personally don't think its worth it but again I think they have it because it is convient to some people.  They are a headphone company not a cable company. If you want to spend $80 I suggest you go somewhere else but if you have the stock cable and are happy with it what is the problem.  

 

The point I am getting at is the cable doesn't really matter.  It is just something that comes with headphones.  I would be willing to sell my stock cable to make a couple extra bucks since I have a nicer one.

Imho, cables make a difference when gear scales higher.

I mean depends on who you are asking so I am not going to touch this one with a ten foot poll but if you believe in cables, maybe.  If you don't than no it doesn't make any difference.

Whoa, I was not asking anyone anything.. I was only stating my opinion.. If I wanted to ask or was at the time referring to you as an example, I would have said "cables make a difference when YOUR gear scales higher"

If you re-read my posts, you'll see I was contemplating buying another stock Audeze balanced cable, but due to the bad experience I ended up getting a Charleston Cable. cool.gif

I've read your post as well as the one stating that the Audeze cables are a JOKE.

What bad experience.   You got the cable for free!  

post #6735 of 7519

its a free cable, i dont think its anything amazing because audeze knows that most people will typically want to upgrade their cable eventually, thats why its detachable and of only average quality.

 

also detachable is important to know.

 

if the cable was the same quality but hardwired, you wouldn't be happy now would ya?
