Double Helix Cables Thread - Page 29

post #421 of 1184

I bought a cable from Double Helix for my HD800.

 

Pros:

Build quality for the price is top notch. The cable look and feel like it will out live the headphone.

Audio quality improve over the stock cable.

Lots of customizable options. You can make a cable that truly represent you.

Fast reply. I normally get an email reply with in 24hrs after the initial message.

 

Cons

It took FOREVER to get the cable. He initially said it would take him 3-4 weeks to make the cable and ship it. I got the cable about 7 weeks after the order.

 

 

Over all I would definitely do business with DH cable again and I would recommend them. Just be ready to wait... Good things come to those who wait.

 

Cheers

Gavin

Thanks for your reply ... it looked familiar. I'm a big surrealist art fan.

Hello, does anyone know if I would get an improvement, upgrading my Schiit PYST RCA Interconnects to  custom made DHC Nucleotide  RCA Interconnects? 

Thanks!

I received my Complement 2 cable for my LCD X this past week.  It took about 7 weeks but the sound and build quality make this wait well worth it.  With the stock cable, I think the X is slightly laid back.  The highs could be more extended and the bass attack could be a bit more impactful.  My minor quibbles with the stock X are completely eliminated by the Complement 2.  It's a real game changer for the X.  The highs are more extended and the sound is more lively without being bright or fatiguing.  The bass attack has punch and it has a lot of impact.  Soundstage is larger and images are more clearly defined all the way to the outer edges of the soundstage.  I'm very pleased with the improvements in sound quality.

 

This is my 4th DHC cable and as always, build quality is second to none. Nice job Peter.

Highly recommended!

Hey guys, anyone have any recommendations for a Balanced cable, for a set of Noble K-10s? running a AK-240& cypher labs duet sometimes with AK-240. Listen to all types of music. Thanks in advance.

I was SO psyched to get a PM from Steve about his experience w/ the Compliment2!!!!

and I didn't even know about this thread - ironic as I've been singin' @scootermafia's praises all over the place!

 

The headphone cable game is getting just as congested as the cable game in high-end audio - GEEZ,

 

But man am I grateful to my boy Ethan in our Audio360.org crew for recommending Peter's DHC cables!

They've become an invaluable part of my personal audio reference systems - both at-home ( where I rock a Complement2 for my Audeze's and HD800s - as well as a new Complement prototype dual-XLR OCC Litz cable for those cans and my Cavalli Audio Liquid Gold) and on-the-go, where I rock his Molecule SE w/ Fusion cables!!

 

My favorite cable should optimally sound like no cable at all - like my favorite audio components - they just get the hell outta the way and let the music SING.

That's what Peter's cables have done in my Sonic Satori Person Audio Lab!

 

To me the cable that has the least amount of impact on the sound, the cable that doesn't seem to color or shape the sound - basically the least amount of filtering, is the KEY, for me.

  

 

I LOVE his Molecule series too - and (Peter help me out because I forget the model number) the cable he made for my Sennheiser Momentum on-ears changed the sound so dramatically I told my contact at Sennheiser they should consider offering up Peters cable as an upgrade. Seriously, the little cans stretch much farther into the bottom end of the frequency spectrum with Peters cables than I've ever heard before - and the treble has magnificent sparkle to it as well:

 

 

For me, right now, it's DHC atop the heap in headphones cables.

I hope Peter comes out with a wicked adapter system though! 

 

Yeah I dig Moon Audio, and Cardas Clear, even ALO makes a solid cable.

 

But, IMO - DHC is on another level.

I call him the Nordost of headphone cables!!  I happen to love Nordost stuff - and they're good people too,

known em since 1996.

 

I told Peter I do have a rule though - that all the cable guys need to keep their comments about each other to themselves!

But, and this is a slice of Peters character - he's never bashed another persons design to me. He's expressed how he might improve upon it - but never bashed it.

 

I can only say that about Peter, Joe Reynolds at Nordost, and Drew at Moon Audio. You three just go about your business and DO IT.

Crazy that I use and love all three!

thanks brotha

I've been catching up on some articles, and comin' back to Head-Fi often

and really diggin' into this stuff w/ my fellow FIers rejuvenates me!!

 

Peters cables were also a HUGE part of my review here at Head-Fi of

the Cavalli Audio Liquid Gold - so when Steve IM'd me and said there was 

an appreciation thread for DHC I popped right in!!

 

yeah, rockin his Molecule balanced w/ Fusion wires right now, w/ my LAu and HD800s

Using a different cable right now though....
