Alota,

Just realised I dreamt about modulors cable at night. Highly recommended from memory! Surprisingly flexible..

The one place the 400 beats the 500 is in the 3D effect otherwise no contest the 500 mids are great I could hardly listen to the 400 female vocals shrill

The cca is the basically for " hifi sound"  set up.

It will add the sound depth separation & clarity  &  warmth &

In addition , the bass sound  more controlled .

Do i like it? 110% yes. 

Does it bring the best out of my other headphone rig? 110% yes

Does it bring the best of  he500 + lyr  ? Dunno yet. i have yet to try some experiments

 

Having said that, the sound from he500  makes me smile

from my reading in this forum it seems that 8 strands cable is not for mobile listening as it is quite heavy and inflexible.


dont forget..i have the 22awg version...it was first time toxic cables made a cable thick like this in 8 stranded version..its one of a kind..i was his test object....so i guess my price is also one of a kind..as i guess its very labor intensive..everything has to be done twice..so its not cheap...and so i dont know what price he would ask for it to others..i guess u have to ask them nicely wink.gif

about flexibilty..its perfect...but yeah its heavy...but not thick...as u see on pics its like u have two cables on ur head instaed of one very thick one...but yeah its a bit heavy..but as being double cables..u can hide it under ur coat or something...but u can also get the 24awg version..or a 26 version of one of their silver cables...i didnt like silver on my rig..but i read others love the silver widow with their rig..so i guess its all personal and depending on the soundsignature of the rest of ur rig

 

as u can see on pic my amp is unbalanced..so i bought a VERY VERY thick adapter cable (BW and also 8 stranded and 22awg) from toxic from unbalanced to balanced (i bought balanced cable as my new amp will be balanced) also...and seeing that thickness...i guess i dont want that thickness on any cable from beginning to end..pulling at ur head and ur headphone..i dont even know if that thickness will fit inside the tiny connectors the hifiman heaphones have... confused.gif

 

 

 

but as i said...my pics to give u an idea of the thickness and flexibilty of my new cable

 

WTF!!!....headfi.org says i don't have permissions to create attachments.... eek.gif...whats up with this????? JUDE?????? anyone?????

 

thanks zoom25..ur the best wink.gif sorry for the swearing thingie biggrin.gif

edit..big oops...selected to many pics...oh well..enjoy!  biggrin.gif

 

ps...the cable on the backside going into the amp coming from my wonderfull hm602 is made from the standard toxic cables 22awg BW 4strands cable..to give u an idea how thick the other cables are on the front of my amp wink.gif

 

edit; sorry for the plastic bag on one of the pics....i use that to put my headphone in after use...as the velours really bugs me as being better in collecting dust then my vacuum cleaner when used! deadhorse.gif

Nice, you got the eye mask thing going on. I've noticed with low to no lighting, the listening experience is usually better. Less stimuli to deal with I suppose. For recliner purposes and far away stations, I suppose a long cable is needed. Currently have a 6 feet + 1 feet adapter silver cable with LCD-3 and the 8 feet stock cable for desk / side stand rig. Might as well get a 10-12 feet next time I order any cable. I'm a little over 6'2'' so the longer the better.
