Hi Guys, can anyone give me some advice regarding sleeved vs unsleeved? The unsleeved looks amazing - but I'm sure the plastic will start to yellow after some time? Thanks!

yellow? thats a new one for me..i mean..i had 2 aftermarket cables until now and the silver original cable that came with my he500 (unsleeved silver cable!) and non of them got yellow. Even after day to day use for hours for more then a year!..okay if u use same cable until u die, the sunlight and moisture in the house and so on will eventually interfere with the cable.thats normal...but by that time u bought ten others already biggrin.gif. i think its all about the quality of the sleeving/protecttive shielding..but i am sure frank will answer it in better way..he is the master of the cables anyway,,from what i read he preferes unsleeved over sleeved for a headphone cable as its a comparative short cable..but as i said..he is the specialist in the knowing...and am sure he will reply on ur question when he can rip himself away from his beloved cables biggrin.gif

 

ps..congrats with ur voucher. tongue.gif

I think you actually meant "prizes for Christmas" instead of "prices" right? normal_smile%20.gif

 

Otherwise that would mean that Frank has to increase the prices on his cables for christmas ... evil_smiley.gif

I totally agree. So I just created an account because I have ordered a cable for my tf10s a couple of days ago and Frank has been massively helpful throughout the process and I just wanted to share this experience. However my tf10s broke yesterday so I find myself searching for a new pair at a reasonable price just so I can use the cable I hope will be with me soon :-P what is this madness?

You don't need the ft10s to enjoy Frank's cables. It might be a good idea to invest the money you would be willing to spend on another pair of tf10s on further toxic cables.
I'm pretty sure Frank would agree here with me as a professional.

Or maybe get another brand and the contact frank to change the connectors..if he didnt start ur cable yet u can find another phone and let him make the cables fit..he is a perfect guy to deal with..so if u contact him am sure u can work something out then biggrin.gif

That's the way to truth and salvation for us all. Thou shalt possess many cables of the toxic kind. Furthermore thou shalt not have any cables of any other kind, for they are evil in their heart and worshippers of satan. These are the words of Saint Frank. Obey, and the way of the Toxic Cables will reveal itself to you. Thus you will find joy and utter happiness.
