Okay thanks for the quick reply. I just never experienced this before, it feels like the wire is about to crack xD. I guess i'll just keep it in my pocket/shirt when im outside.

Warning: It will crack given the chance, so definately prevent any/all flexing when very cold. No plastic 'likes' being flexed when cold.

check the impedance curve of the W4, the more impedance you add the flatter the FR graph will get.

but keep in mind that if adding impedance for BA driver has negligible effect on the mechanical control of the driver, it is usually not the same with dynamic drivers.

for the IE80 there is no noticeable signature change with added impedance. above 100ohm(max I can do is 138) I feel like the sub bass loses a little power but I can't tell if it's real damping effect of is I just hear what I expect to hear. in any case it's not much and not interesting.

I think you better get a dap or amp that has a fun sound signature and dynamic because cable will not made a lot of change in powerfullness in sound from my experience but it does increase the dynamic but not by alot. Personally i prefer silver cable with the ie80 because i find silver cable made the treble brighter,tighten the bass,improve imaging which is a great combo with something warm like the ie80 in my opinion. Take a look at the plussound cable and toxic cabl, they have high quality cable

Good luck!

Take a look at silver galaxy cable for ie80 on ebay. Its great cable and a upgrade to the stock cable with reasonable price.

I hesitate to say this but I wouldn't waste your money on cables. The stock is very good in practical terms. Any difference in sound will be tiny if at all. Enjoy your 80's for what they are and put any cash you have to a new pair for a different flavour.

Do silver cable makes any difference at all? I honestly find it hard to believe.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Advanced-Upgrade-Cable-for-SENNHEISER-IE8-Galaxy-silver-/121114098915?pt=US_Video_Cables_Adapters&hash=item1c32f67ce3

they cost $129 :confused_face: in my browser

edit: sorry i dont realise that the silver galaxy is silver plated copper now because its used to be silver in the past when i had it so i cant comment on how it sounds because i never tried an silver plated copper silver galaxy :(
