Wow.  Frank sure is a nice guy.  

 

I recently ordered a Silver Poison IEM cable, today be exact, and not only did he answer all of my questions (except commenting on his own cables, which is logical), there was a slight hiccup in the transaction regarding finances and he was very understanding.  

 

I can't wait to see the package arrive at the door!

 

Edit:  By the way, I can't say enough about his response time.  I've heard horror stories about Whiplash Audio (let's not bring this up) and they were going be my first choice with their unique hybrid cable, but due to the promptness and ability to reply at all manners of times (I'm in Asian at the moment so when I reply in the afternoon and the morning there is a 14 hour difference from CST) I was convinced I was in good hands.

Hi Everyone, I’ve just received the Venom copper cable for the Sennheiser HD800, so I thought I’d share a few brief words and photographs about the cable.

 

First of all, Frank at Toxic Cables is a great guy to deal with, because he always answered any queries I had in a very prompt manner (on a few occasions, he replied within a few minutes!). I had to wait nearly 4 weeks for the cable to arrive, so I’m happy to say it was well worth the wait. The cable comes in a good-quality metal case, and the cable was easily connected to the headphones. In use, the cable doesn’t feel heavy and the craftsmanship is high. After listening to a few of my favourite songs (mostly pop), the most obvious improvements I hear is deeper bass and clearer detail levels. The overall sound of the cable is smoother than the original cable, which has made the more brighter-sounding songs in my collection more enjoyable to listen to. To finish off, here are a few photographs of the cable:

rsung, looking good! What amp are you using for the 800's?

 

and Frank, what did I need to order to get the nifty cable case???  confused_face(1).gif

post #208 of 9343

Beautiful cable rsung, thanks for sharing!

 

How are its ergonomics?

Because its solid silver, do you feel you have to worry about over-bending it?

Hi longbowbbs, I'm using the Musical Fidelity X-CAN v3 with upgraded tubes, capacitors, diodes (all from Rock Grotto) and power supply (from Fidelity Audio).

Hi ChrisSC, I'm finding the cable to be a bit more rigid than the original cable but it's still quite flexible, so I'm still able to turn my head without feeling the cable pulling at me. Sorry I didn't make it clear that I got the Venom copper cable rather than the Venom silver one. However, Frank still advised me to be careful when handling the cable because of the solid core wire.

Nice upgrades! The pictures on the Rock Grotto site are great. Someone is handy with the soldering iron!
