I think it's only fair that we hear Whiplash Audio's side of the story too, particularly in view of some of the somewhat pointed posts here and elsewhere so far regarding the green coloration issue. I think Mike raises a good question, and that is - what is the actual extent of the problem? Is it a few isolated cases or is this happening on a regular basis? The other question, which Mike touches upon below, is, to what extent has Whiplash addressed this issue?
(read from bottom to top)
A: "We actually aren’t sure exactly what caused it, but the changes we made for v2 seemed to clear it up. It was a cosmetic issue more than anything though, the sound quality was not effected. We also replaced every cable that was brought to our attention."
Q: "Mike, what do you think was the problem with the V1s? impurity in the silver? much appreciated - look forward to hearing back from you."
"Basically the green issue was very isolated. We have only seen a few cables do that and it was all v1. What I have been seeing lately is that someone has an issue like this, or the Ultrasone ED10 pad problem, and everyone jumps in. I have heard a few people say this has happened with v2, but once we ask for pictures or proof it ends up being either v1 or they stop talking to us. As far as I can tell it is isolated to v1 (Although very rare), which is no longer a problem since all of our cables are v2."
