I have a question for you and hoping for some helpfull answers.
I have a pair of SR80i drivers (with membrane removed, holes punched in the rear and dynamat fitted to the back of the drivers), theser are fitted into a pair of Bocote Wooden cups at the moment using the stock Grado cable.
I have been thinking about rewiring this set of headphones but not sure what to look at. At the moment I have three options open to me, all of these would involve buying the cables ready made, sheathed and terminated and would only require me to solder them onto the driver plates.
These options would all be 6ft and terminated with a 3.5mm plug:
MCA - using Nucleotide Stranded OCC Copper wire - 24 AWG = $240.00 (£153.00) + Shipping
Ohrenholz - using Mogami Quad 2534 = $65.00 (£41.50) + Shipping
Headphone Lounge - Silver Ray Cable (which I assume is predominantly silver) = $96.00 (£61.27) Shipped
Unfortunately I really dont know much about cables, but would I be right in saying the cables from Headphone Lounge and Ohrenholz would be Silver Based.....if so what is the difference between silver and copper and is copper worth the extra £150+
Anybody have any experience of these cables and can you shed any insight on how they differ or which is likely to be better for the Grado SR80i in Wooden Cups.
Thanks in advance
