**NEW** A new level of performance; Reference Series TWag v2 headphone cable.  

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

After many years of development, I have created a new reference headphone cable. I worked with engineers from my different manufacures in designing my own custom made parts, couple that with the incredible sounding TWag v2, add about 1500 hrs of burned in wire, thrown in a kitchen sink (why not, right?) and you have a cable that takes a minimum of 4-5 weeks to make from start to finish.

 

Nothing is left out. NO CORNERS CUT, and most importantly fully customizable and made to order.

 

WARNING: this cable contains a highly dangerous wallet burning agent. Beware!! Stop reading if this is a problem. 

 

This cable can be fitted for just about any headphone as long as it can be attached. In addition, it must fit and can handle the support of this rather serious construction. 

 

Here is one example:

BTW, thats me in the reflection. 

 

The Y splitter is handmade from Zebra wood. Each splitter wood selection can be requested.

 

More examples:

The above connector is NOT an option. 

Y splitter that is hand made from Zebra wood:

Some examples of headphones that can be used:

 

  • Ultrasone 8, 9, 10's
  • Sennheiser HD6xx, HD800
  • Beyerdynamic T1, T5p
  • Grado RS1, RS2, GS1000, PS1000
  • LCD-2
  • HE5, HE6
  • Just to name a few.

 

Some of the key improvements:

 

  • Bass, Bass and BASS. Detailed, rich, authoritative yet not over powering to drown out other key frequencies. 
  • Full extension in the mids allowing details that were never heard before.
  • INCREDIBLE separation.This is one of the best separation in notes I have ever heard. Dead silent in between. 
  • Endless treble that sounds realistic.

 

This product is an investment. So everything is made to order. Build time is a MINIUM 4 weeks. New headphones can be purchased in combination with this. Many more details can be discussed.

 

Prices vary. They start at $900. The Reference Headphone Cable is designed already and that part does not change, however everything else is in your hands!! 

 

Please contact me at csanborn@whiplashaudio.com

 

Thanks!

Craig

The difference is amazing...

 

The reference series is designed to be fully customizable and is not for everyone. This has been in the works for years. Once the reviews come out, more and more will understand the improvements. I can certainly understand the "price shock". 

 

More to come as this develops. 

 

Craig
