19 custom IEM/TF10/Shure/IE8 cables reviewed (Effect Pearl, Apollo, & Odin added 3/20/13) - Page 13

post #181 of 635


I ordered the Null Audio Lune (shipped, waiting for its arrival). Since you had the Lune cable, why did you switch to the Arete? Does the Arete sound better than the Lune? Now you've got me second guessing my decision.

Great job, you helped me make a decision on which cable I'll buy.

post #184 of 635


Yep, I sure did. I just wanted to hear from him, if thats the only reason he made the switch or if there were other factors involed. It's always nice to have more than one opinion. I'm sure I will like the Lune cable over the unbearable OEM cable that came with it... if it ever arrives!

 

Thanks for all the time and effort you put into the reviews.

Does anyone know if the TWag or the TWcu matches better with the Westone 4r? Can't really seem to find an answer anywhere.

 

Thank you.

It depends on what you want from the sound signature.  I haven't tested many copper cables, but silver tends to be brighter and open up the soundstage and add clarity/resolution.  Copper will retain the original sound signature with a possible improvement in the soundstage/clarity/resolution.

@average_joe  Thanks for the comprehensive cable review.  I decided to pull the trigger on the Null Audio Arete and am eagerly awaiting their arrival in the post.

Average_joe, thank you for your reviews. They helped pull the trigger on a set of chris himsel cables for my tf10 remolds. Albeit used from caracara08, they have yet to see 300 hours . They shoukd make a good a set of cables for any future customs. I hope so at least!  Anyhoo thanks

I was more than happy with the Lune cable, however after reading about the Arete (ie better sq overall, improvement in clarity, little more bass centered than mid centered), it sounded like qualities I'd like better than the Lune.  I'd take the Lune and I'm sure I'd be equally happy.

No problem, let us know how the Arete and CH cables perform for you.

The Lune cable is good and if that is what you bought, see what you think.

any thoughts on whiplash's newer hybrid cables, and what they might bring to earsonics sm3v2??
post #192 of 635

Quick question, if you had a $500 budget, will you spend it on a new cable and LOD or purchase an amp/dac (amp-less and dac-less at the moment)?

 

Thanks.

Unless your amp/dac we're already figured out to your liking and/or you really detest shopping for DAC and amp pairings, it'd be the second choice every time IMO

Has anyone tried Lune Cables on Unique Melody Recessed sockets? I've read in OP that your can flatten the connectors with pliers to make it fit snugly on bigger sockets.

If not, are these Lune Cables compatible with "flat" sockets instead?

A bit of smart shopping could net you high quality examples of all three for $500.
