OK, just got mines and installed them on both the Bravo & Spitfire MK1! At first, I thought the SQ was very different, then not so much....I'm listening really carefully now, and I'd swear that the SS has become wider and deeper and the trebles far less congested. Need to listen even more carefully now...it's clearly not a night & day, but it might have improved my headphonic experience altogether indeed...but I think it's also made inferior quality recordings even uglier to listen to now
For instance in this tune, the tambourine is much clearer and far less mushy: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002JH93BO/ref=dm_mu_dp_trk25
But we all know how silver can often sound overbright and become tiring after a while...so I'm still torn atm. More impressions later, and let us about your experience too
PS: I've A/B'ed several times, it does increase the SS volume and top-end clarity but at the expense of transients I think..the sound is far less punchy and appears very much dull to my ears, and the SS being so widened doesn't make any sense anymore. This OST is heart-shredding w/ the stock copper DC cables(+ferrites), and dull to the utmost w/ those snake oil silver cables...needless to say that I've learned my lesson.
PPS: I've also tried to swap only one cable at once, but it always sounds exactly the same as both cables together duh...plasticky and lacking emotions. Silver has nothing to do w/ audio IME, as my tests w/ silver/gold coax were a major fiasco as well.
