My cables have no microphonics. I might have used the wrong word. My brain had been very fatigued at the point of recording.

Microphonics is just another consideration with any cable. Thanks for posting the video!

Just one of those orders that keeps going wrong. biggrin.gif

 

Hope you will enjoy the cables for a long time to come, if you experience any further problems, please let me know, i am always here to make things right.

Stop the presses... Frank is human after all:)

 

I mean Frank does not sleep and rumor has it he does not need food and he does not have blood but a greenish toxin running through is veins.Joking aside I have a question not sure if I should PM you or just put it out here.

 

currently setting up a small Balanced portable set up. Running my X1050 or F807 through a RSA protector.*  not sure what cable to get for my HD25's/momentums (Silver or Copper)

* I know the Sr-71B is better but I prefer the battery life and size of the Protector

 

Side note or would the balanced set up work better with EIM's (Have a spare set of heir 3.ai)

This is an interesting point because it is one thing to get better performance but at what price vs the original headphones?

 

I always wonder how much should the mod max out at relative to the device's original cost?

i realise something...does post number 2000 get anything?? haha

post #2106 of 9343

Yes..You get the opportunity to buy 2 cables for each headphone you own!  Very Fortunate indeed!  biggrin.gif

Um... well, I have the 8 wire 22awg Black Widow on order for my LCD-2. I started with an 8 wire 24awg + black sleeve and later changed it to 22awg and no sleeve. As far as I know, this cable is going to be pretty big, as Frank has to use different (i.e. bigger) connectors because his standard connectors won't fit. Frank told me that my order is part of the current batch of cables he's making right now, so the wait will be over soon! I will then post pictures and my first impressions. My goal is to keep the LCD-2's sound signature and just enhance overall sound quality. I don't need sparklier highs and bla bla, all I want is more of the same sound! The Audeze stock cable is copper, and the Black Widow is copper INSANITY, so I guess I'm on the right track... biggrin.gif

I have never tried the RC-4 with the HE-500 so i honestly could not tell you, i felt the Black Widow paired very well with them, so does the SP and SW. There is only so much improvement a cable can make, even though it pains me to say it, as i would love to take more money off you, you might want to consider looking in to other headphones. LCD-3 maybe, then you can buy a cable for those from me. biggrin.gif

I just got paid, so might sent more money your way: Still need a balanced cable and a few adapters:)

Always happy to take more money, so don't take too long :)
