I previously didn't believe that a custom cable would change the sound on my UE TF10's... and Im actually on record as rubbishing the idea... but embarassingly my ears are now telling me that I was completely wrong.
The new cable is a silver coated sunricky 'Dark Lord' item and the bass is possibly slightly reduced but the treble is more crisp.. seems to have been turned up and maybe extended slightly.
I'm not sure why but my Galaxy S 4.2/Neutron player is also clipping at a slightly lower pre-amp volume level with my favourite tunes than before.
It is a known fact that headphone jack ouput impedance alone can alter the frequency response on low impedance iem's. (1/8th rule) So if the lower resistance material used in the cable also reduces the combined z of the socket/jack/cable total impedance then why not?
I'm now a believer that with certain headphone/player combinations the sound can be altered with a cable made from a different material. Please note- I'm not saying the sound is improved... merely altered.
