No issues with microphonics.

 

So, is the cable linked above basically the same cable as this one but cheaper?

Pretty much. Handmade by a guy in Wisconsin. Also Furutech connector is bomb.

Sweet. I'm from Wisconsin originally, so maybe I'll just have to support his business. Thanks for your info.

 

Edit: I purchased it. Thanks for the info about cables that don't cost more than a car payment.

 No I have not but at this point I am very happy with the sound I am getting out of my lcd2 v2s. Unfortunately it took a pretty expensive cable upgrade to sound like it does but for the first time I am happy with the lcd2 v2 sound. When I bought my lcd 2 the lcd-x was not out yet . Probably the lcd 3 but at approximately twice the price of the lcd2 v2 that makes them too pricey for my budget.

   Maybe at this years axpona show I will be able to listen to a pair . At last years axpona I got a chance to hear the abyss headphone . But only briefly so I could not tell that much about their sound quality to make any kind of judgement .

I just spent quite a bit of money on a fantastic Norne Audio cable, but I can't tell if it has made a difference as I also changed my amp at the same time so it is hard to say what the sound is being influenced by! I made the switch to using a speaker tap cable right from the speaker terminals of my amp. Just stunning results, couldn't be happier.

Hi! I need a balanced cable for my LCD-2 and since I'll have to pay at least 80 USD (for the stock one), I've been looking for a good not so expensive aftermarket one. What do you guys think about this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cardas-Audeze-3m-Headphone-Cable-Balanced-Neutrik-Gold-Furutech-1-4-/171627061316  The guy seems to make it all in Wisconsin.

 

Thanks!
