post #8971 of 8972

Man, would I enjoy this forum with personal impressions being exactly that: personal. If cables do change sound (which I doubt and have no convincing evidence showing otherwise) they are definitely not making world-shaking changes to the sound signature of a headphone. I can understand enthusiasm for a new purchase, I do love the look and feel of a nice cable (and have spent quite some money on cabling for my PA system) I think we should keep it in proportion. And especially not mislead newcomers into believing that changing the cable to something that costs almost as much as the headphone will magically make their headphone become what they initially wanted it to be but have a hard time to see disappointed. Which of course leads to the slippery slope of expectation bias, which may actually help them enjoy their headphone more... but I think the better solution would be to guide them to a model that better fits their needs.

 

Not every theoretical effect does indeed affect sound, we're still talking about hearable frequency range here...

 

End of rant ;-)
