Charleston Cable Company Headphone Cables and Interconnects - WOW! - Page 2

post #16 of 31

If you're looking for Sennheiser-compatible cables, go Signal Cable... Much better bang for your buck than CCC. Hopefully they'll start making cables for other phones as well.

 

I wish Blue Jeans Cable would start doing headphone cables. Heh. Maybe when hell freezes over.

I own CCC cables for five headphones, even special-made XLR connector cables to use with speaker amps. I recommend this company highly for workmanship as well as customer service. I've always received orders in less than a week!

NOTE: I hold no interests in CCC, simply a very satisfied and long-time customer.

I've come here for reviews for years and never joined or posted.  That said, your posts on CCC convinced me of the reliability and quality of their cables so I ordered the HiFiMAN Headphone Cable -- CANARE for my HE 300's.  I am stunned by the improvement in sound reproduction over the stock silver ca ble.  Just like a whole new set of headphones.  I was a cable sceptic == small minded I guess -- but no more.  Fast service, great quality and much increased joy of listening.  Have no hesitation in ordering from this company and believe that cables make the headphones.

Another vouch for Charleston Cable. I own the top-of-the-line UPOCC for my Audeze (with the sleeving option) and it's exceptionally sturdy and well-built, and of course sounds great. Not as flashy as, say, Norne cables, but that can be a plus depending on where you want to use it. For example, I will use the Charleston at work where I don't want to draw as much attention to my stuff.

and another happy Charleston Cable Company customer.

 

the Audiophile cable for Audeze (LCD-3 later version but non fazer) just smokes the stock cable. it totally opened up the top end for me, unexpectedly. far more extended and transparent highs. sorta lifted a veil across the board (up top the most as I said). I love my LCD-3s ever since they gave me knew drivers in June 2013, but was considering sending them out to have fazer added, although not everyone agrees that it's an improvement, to give me more up top. now I absolutely don't feel the need. and my cans for comparison are senn hd800s, so my reference point for sweetness in the high end are the extremely revealing hd800s (tamed a mite with cardas cables) and my speakers which are KEF 105.2 original versions (famous for great treble). I can now go from my kefs and my senns to my lcd3s and feel no loss in highs as I had been feeling (hearing).

I placed the order for my Alpha Prime cable last Sunday and it is with me now 8 days later. I can't say anything about the cable's performance yet - I haven't tested it - but I can say that it is superbly made (in a no frills kind of way). It is also very light and flexible which suits my purposes just fine.

The speed at which this guy works though... 8 days from the States to the UK. I had to wait 11 weeks for my Norne cable.

I bought the "Audiophile" cable which is a pretty good wire. This is the second time I've bought that cable. It was what I used with my HE-500 with great results. I'm pretty confident I'll be happy with the sound.

I don't know why this guy isn't more popular around here. I'm thinking it has something to do with the lack of bright colours and fancy names. His cables are every bit as good as anything else I've had (although I do wish he'd make a bright red one:-).

I do. Have you seen the prices? Yes? Then so do you.

 

Good luck to the bloke mind. $600 for a few feet of cable. Beats working.

You're deliberately misinterpreting his post. The question was obviously "I don't know why this guy isn't more popular around here... than other high-end headphone cable makers." The answer probably is that the cables don't look flashy. But the build and sound quality is phenomenal.

Lol. Yeah. But it's an expensive pastime and a lot of his competitors charge far more than he does - have you seen the DHC website? What I paid for my cable is in the upper reaches of what I would consider sane, but when you consider that the likes of Nordost are asking thousands of $ for a few feet of cable, then CCCs prices don't seem so crazy.

Cable sounds awesome BTW.

These cables look awesome, once I have some time with my Sennheiser HD650s I may consider these as an upgrade for their stock cable.

 

Also I loved the review, I like the combination of your thoughts on the sound and the parts where you waxed poetically about your experiences becoming an audiophile.  That really resonated with me because this is part of what I love about music and the pursuit of the perfect sound.

Hi Guys,

 

Just received XLR entry level cables for my Sennheiser HD650's and I'm very happy with the product.  The headphones are sound quality has vastly improved using these cables.  I live in Perth, Western Australia and I'm halfway around the world and they were quickly dispatched to me after ordering.

 

Cheers Rod
