+1 They do look beautiful and really make Toxic Cables stand out from the other cable companies.
Frank is the Litz indeed a step up? What is the differents anyway.
Oh gosh. Can't wait xD
By the way Frank will you be able to mount these on a HD25/Amperior cable? And what happens to the cover that we have to unscrew and all to remove the cable from the headphone cups?
Unfortunately not the Y split, as the Amperior only has 1 wire going to the cups, so there is no Y split to put a Y splitter on.
The part that unscrews from the headphone on the Amperior is actually moulded on to the cable, so it can be removed from the headphone but not the cable. When ordering a cable for the Amperior, it should me mentioned to me that you are ordering for these and i will supply the cable with this black box attached to the cable, so you can just screw it on to your headphones.
I just bought a length of 26AWG cryo treated 7N copper wire from Toxic Cables, as part of a project to rebuild my grado sr80s from the ground up (aluminium, leather, mahogany - a very enjoyable project so far).
So I'm looking to braid the cables - 4 cables coming out of the jack, all braided together up to the splitter, whereby two cables go off to the left and two to the right driver. In all the pictures I can find of this arrangement, each pair of cables going up from the splitter to the drivers are just twisted round each other in a double helix fashion (as it takes three or more cables to do a braid). But just twisting cables around each other will unravel in no time. So what am I missing here? Am I being really stupid or is there something else going on to stop the two twisted cables from unravelling? Are they somehow bonded together in that configuration?
Hope someone can help, thanks very much in advance.
After some surgery on the HD650 connector, i can confirm that it now fits perfectly and HD-25 cables will all not ship with these modified connectors, unless otherwise requested.
Once plugged in, you will not be able to see the part that has been cut off.
Black Widow performs very well with the HE-500, so does the Silver Widow and SP. I would not recommend the Silver plated Copper "Viper" for these headphones, although it's good with HE-300, 400 and 6. That's not to say someone else won't like it.
You could always buy all 3.
Hi. can you say more about why you would not recommend the silver-plated copper for the HE-500. I am looking for a cable for them and wondered what the reasoning is? thanks
I can confirm the Widows are a step up from the Poison's but the Poison's are still a great cable.
Course....They are sitting on the shelf for now...
I believe there is no such thing as SP Litz. If SP stands for Silver Poison then Silver Widow should be the closest Litz relative to that one although having a bigger gold percentage than Poison and if SP stands for silver plated then there isn't one yet in the Toxic catalogue. http://www.head-fi.org/t/609155/toxic-cables-the-appreciation-thread/1260#post_8924398
Please do correct me if I'm wrong.
