@MP1968 : Solv is a hybrid silver/copper cable, certainly a good option to get the result you want.

The bass can be a bit thunderous, though, and I wondered whether any of the Norne cables are known to rein in the bottom end and tighten it up?

Any suggestions would be appreciated. 

Solv X or Vanquish should work. I have the Vanquish for the Alpha Dogs and it tightened up the bass and took away from of the excess "bloom" also the mids seem a lot more detailed and refined and not as boosted as the stock cable. Cables are a good way to fine tune your headphones. Usually the differences are minor but certainly noticeable. Also I prefer the treble of the vanquish cable over the stock cable. The stock cable sounds a lot darker (be reminded it is a Canare star quad)

Yep tight bass definitely one of the defining characteristics of the Solv.

My Solv should be in my mailbox sometime today. Only thing is I don't have an amp with a 1'4" input at the moment so will my grado adapter change the sound at all?

 

I plan on buying a custom O2 + Odac or a Lyr 2. The O2 seems like a better deal for the price though.

I have the same adapter and no, it doesn't change the sound. Good quality piece for what it is...

just got the Solv for my Alpha Prime today, so far everything has been great with it. It's a bit smaller in diameter than I thought it would be, but who cares, because it's built beautifully, super extra lightweight, the new Eidolic TeCu connector is really awesome, and of course the sound really feels like I'm listening to these headphones proper. The stock cable for the headphones is really good, but over time it felt like it was slightly denting the precision that these headphones can usually have, like slightly denting the sharp tips of the sound. With the Solv I just feel like I'm hearing everything super razor sharp and clear and tight. Does as advertised lol. and I highly recommend getting the new bloodwood splitter too, it looks pretty sweet. Same for the blue metallic heatshrink (I think thats my favorite part lol).

 

So yea definitely worth the wait, in every way. :)

Thanks for your impressions, I hope to order a Solv cable, when I do get a Audeze headphone. Hope you have a great night jamming out.
