I have tried all 3 cables with LCD-3 and I have decided to get Complement2 for myself. For me, musicality, details, and refinement is what Im looking for and if you are looking for the same thing from your LCD3. I would high recommend you getting one Complement2 for yourself.
Here are some impression I got from trying all the 3 cables when I was searching for my headphone cables
The pure copper cable is the first one to be out of my cables option. Personally, Complement2 (being the same pure copper cable) beats Black Widow in every single aspect.
Silver widow is a great sounding cable. However, to my ears after switching to Complement2 I feel that Silver Widow sonic is rather bland. In terms of soundstage and refinement, Complement2 is much better at producing a very realistic soundstage compared to Silver Widow. In terms of musical details, even though I expect Silver Widow to beat Complement2 here but for some reason I think they are on par with each other.
Complement2 sounds much more musical to my LCD3. I get this punchy and unbelievable realistic percussion sound recreation. The soundstage is as close to reality as it could get.
Hope it helps you :)
