Man, Thailand is a scary place. I think I'd never sleep with a Thai woman with the fear of being caught by surprise.

Yes definitely!

 

Has anyone tried a pure copper cable on the 500? I have, and I find the stock cable is better. Is the stock cable silver-plated copper or pure silver?

I use the HE-6 balanced OCC on my HE-500. I didn't notice much difference from the stock cable sound wise(to be honest I usually don't notice much difference between cables at all), but it's much more flexible.

And as far as I remember, HE-500's stock cable is silver-plated copper, not pure silver. I don't like it because it's too stiff and very prone to microphonics.

I've only tried the stock one but I like them a lot. I've read that silver cables have a brighter sound has that been the case so far.

My cable is mogami so it's OFC.  At first I thought there was differences and sounded warmer than stock.  After a few days and many tracks, I came to my senses ...

You can tell that I don't believe in HP cable magic by now, can't you?  :p

That cable looks really good. Is it terminated in two 3-pin XLR? Which amp is that?
