Thanks.  Trevor told me he didn't get a chance to update his site.  He said this was brand new so I took a chance.  The splitter is a new item for Norne as well, so I took the first or second one made.  Looks kinda nice.  If you PM him, he will definitely provide better detail than I can.

 

Cheers,

 HedgeHog , We will be VERY interested in your comparaison between your Eternus and your Silvergrade S !   Please.... :D

My experience & order date is the same.  It's been at least a week since I sent the latest request through the Norne web site--with no response to date.  Nothing at all since the acknowledgment of my new shipping address.

I have just received the HE-X for a 10 days test period, and I must say that (from memory) I think... I prefer the HE-X to the HE-1000 ! :eek:   Strange isn't it ?  (Next Thursday I will be able to compare A/B the HE-X and HE-K).

 

( Please, don't tell this to anybody, I do not want to be banned from Head-Fi for prefering the HE-X over the HE-K)  :D

 

So, the HE-X may be (finally) the end of my search ...  and it will complement well my TH900 : The HE-X in Brugge and the TH900 in my villa in Morroco :-)

 

Now, I believe that I need an aftermarket cables will improve it.   I will therefore consider either DHC or Norne.  Any other suggestion ? 

 

The DHC's Complement4 & Silver Spore 4 are definitively not considered because too expensive and too big/stiff, so my choice now may be the  Norne Eternus  or  the DHC 8-wire Molecule Elite (both OCC silver litz ).  Other suggestions ?

 

one criteria could have been which will ship first, but... I understand they are booth very loooong delivery delay ? :mad:

 

 

PS: does balanced cable improve the HE-X's SQ ?

You're certainly entitled to like the HEX more than the HEK (and, it saves you a considerable amount of money if you do!), but I'd wait until you can compare them head to head. Some do like other headphones better than the HEK, it is not perfect, and there are other cans that can outperform it is certain areas. However, at the Philly area meet got to compare my HEK to an HEX, the HEK is more detailed, open, better to my ears. The HEX gets pretty close for about half the price, though...
(oh, and my Norne Zoetic balanced cable does improve the sound)

The HEX is great - Silvergarde S is the way to go with those

thanks.  

 

Does the Silvergrade S comes in other colors than Black ?  red ?

 

Isn't the Silvergrade less flexible than the stock cable ? I hate stiff cables !  (I mentioned the Norne Eternus because it is more flexible than the Silvergrade, and ... look so nice !)

Hi bmichels,

 

I will spend some time listening, hopefully, early this coming week.  Sadly, I barely use the headphone/amp since I prefer to use my desktop speakers.  I don't even listen to my other systems since my butt is always stuck to my office chair.

 

Anyway, I have a Curious Cable arriving Monday or Tuesday to complete the "loom".  I'll compare the two cable headphones cable then.  Hope that's OK.  And I'm not that great at reviews so hopefully it will be useful to you.

 

 

Cheers,

-H

Thanks a lot.

What is this " secret CABLE" that you will get soon ?
post #1859 of 2019
Quick question. For my HE-X I want to replace the stock cable by a High-End after-market cable,(OCC Silver litz), but i need only 4 ft long.

-> will I loose part of the Sonic advantage of my expensive new cable because it is only 4 ft long
? Will a longeur cable sound better ?

I'm pretty sure he is talking about a company called curious cables, but that's a bit off topic anyhow considering what this thread is about. I believe curious only makes USB cables. I don't think he is referring to a cable as being secret by calling it curious. Maybe I'm wrong?
