Maybe the benefit of getting older and losing those high frequencies...

I agree... He is overly sensitive.

 

BobFiggins, you should actually have your hearing tested officially. If you can hear 20k or even higher...well... you're a mutant ;) j/k

 

But the HE1000 was far from sibilant. I would love to have heard the Zoetic with the HE1000 as I know that particular cable has the best synergy with the HE1000's of all cables. I tried it with the Norne Solv and had no sense of sibilance whatsoever.

 

I'm most interested to find out your actual sensitivity to frequency tests.

test it, please... link above.

 

I can only hear up to 16,500hz, and the range is generally 20hz-20khz...but from what I understand there is a small amount of humans over 24 years old can hear frequencies above 16Khz.

At work so I can't go to the link yet.

 

I also tried the HE1000 at the headamp station with some red amp/dac stack. I don't know what it is called. The HE1000 had no noticeable treble issues with me. In fact, that was the best listening experience with headphones I have ever had. I'm guessing that combo is expensive.

15,950.

 

When it hit around 10,000 and 7,500, those were the most painful parts. I listened up around 16-10,000 a few times, and it was painful, but tolerable. Soon as I hit 10,000 and 7,500 my ears started to ring even after I stopped the test. As I write this they are still ringing.

I'm arguing with a friend that the Draug V2 is still 100% pure copper. Am I right? 

 

My friend thinks that silver has been added to the mix in some shape or form.

As far as I know, it always has been and continues to be copper only.

Any new iem cable incoming?

Trevor gave me a hint that it may be called Marauder? All silver...I just ordered a Vorpal. May consider that one once he releases some specs.

Hope I'm not letting the cat out of the bag...

It is 100% copper equiv. of 4x21awg, always has been pure copper. 

The silver part was probably me having mentioned something some time back about experimenting with

making one with half pure silver and half pure copper (which I have done recently purely to test out). 

 

Regardless there would always be a pure copper D2. 

The other, if its offered, would be limited release of some sort.

The new pure silver ciem / iem replacement cable will be listed in the coming couple of days. 

The Solv should also make a return for iem when the next batch of wire is in stock. 

Was running lower on stock so pulled it for a couple of products until its replenished.
