I have been loving my IE80 for about a year.. Recently they have been used with the Rocoo BA and in the last week or so with the Studio V 3rd Anniverary. Now te BA was ok but the new Studio takes them to a whole different level. More open, tight deep bass and lovely extended highs. It's a great match.
I was using Silver Galaxy upgrade cable from Song's audio purchased on ebay for a while but recently bought the Toxic Cables Silver Poison and that has improved the sound even more.
Can you post some pics of what the cable looks like and the price? I was considering having a cable sourced for me down the road by Tralucent Audio since the build quality on their cables are superb.
