HD800 owner here and I wouldn't worry about the weight, even with the adapters, the cables are much lighter than stock.

+1 . Steve is definately a great guy to work with, kept me informed on the status of my order throughout the process of it being made and the cable is truly a work of art (as much as an audio cable can be a thing of art) and really makes me reach for my headphones more often!

A big thumbs up for Steve Eddy.

On one of the mini XLR connectors on my Qcable, the locking mechanism fell apart. It was due a manufacturing problem of the connector, not anything Steve did. As part of the outer barrel assembly, I could easily remove it and leave the wiring connections undisturbed. I searched and found the correct connector on Mouser, but it would not have the channel ID that Steve has printed on them. So I wrote to Steve and asked for the cost to have him ship me one Right channel connector. He wrote back to check my address, and promptly send me out one with next day delivery, at no cost to me.

That is exceptional customer service.

Received the package on time this morning, replaced barrels and now back in the music.smily_headphones1.gif
Count me as an extremely satisfied customer.

Kudos, Steve!

Yeah Steve is great.  I order some cables for my Senn HD800s that I am waiting on.  Excited :)  He is very pleasant to work with.  Nice guy!

I have now joined the ranks of Q cable owners and am delighted with my purchase :D

 

I wanted a slightly smaller cable to use between my Hugo and Audeze LCD3.  It is a silk cable (of course), brown in colour and terminates with the terrazzo barrels.

 

First impressions was how beautiful the cable looks.  The braiding is gorgeous and the terrazzo is just stunning - and goes very well with the brown cable.

 

Next thing I noticed was how incredibly lightweight it is.  Not in a flimsy or "cheap" way but in a very classy way.  It reminded me of how I felt when I picked up the new Apple Macbook recently - unbelievably light but oozing quality at the same time.

 

I've only been using the cable a couple of hours but already it makes the slightly heavy LCDs somehow feel lighter.  The standard Audeze cable isn't a pretty thing and always felt "in the way" somehow.

 

Looks aside it's also a very sturdy feeling cable.  With previous custom cables I've owned I've always felt slightly concerned that sooner or later the wire might pop out unless I'm incredibly careful.  Not so here.  These cables feel like they will last longer than me.  I do however promise to still be careful with them Steve :bigsmile_face:.

 

Sound?  It sounds stunning :).  For anyone that doesn't know, Steve is big into Sound Science.  This is fantastic for anyone purchasing a Q cable because it means that he has a deep and real understanding of how this stuff works.  As a result you won't be given a thousand different cable options or told how important it is to pay a premium for 1% pixie dust in your cables in order to get the optimum sound.  This honesty was refreshing to say the least!

 

Then there's Steve himself.  One thing I noticed when flicking through this thread is how many people seem to love Steve as much as their cable.  I have to agree.  He's got a wonderful sense of humour and is incredibly knowledgeable.  Couple that with the most unique "sales" technique I've ever experienced and you get a genuine top bloke!

Steve, if I ever find myself in Sacramento, the beers are on me :beerchug:

 

Cheers!

 

Craig

I wanted to stop in and ad my positive experience with Steve:

A few weeks ago, I was able to purchase a used Q Audio cable for the Audeze phones. It was terminated with 1/4" jack and I wanted an XLR. I contacted Steve, and he instructed me on how to send it back to him for replacement. He also replaced the mini-XLR's with the latest version. To echo the sentiments of other customers: Steve is one of the most personable people you could possibly meet in this hobby! It is so refreshing that he can take his valuable time to personally answer questions on the phone, and email. He is beyond quick to communicate and his great, unpretentious personality and sense of humor adds that much more joy to the experience. Oh, it it just so happens that his products are amazing as well. Steve is a rare breed indeed, the highest compliments are well deserving to him, IMHO!
