Really excited to order it and compare it to my 8 wire hybrid cable from whiplash and toxic.

Will be released in about 10-12 days.

How much thicker does that make the cable? I don't think I ever realized how nice that could look on a cable before.

What's the current wait time on say, a 4-pin Silver Widow HD 800 cable?

Having both the 8 wire Arsenic and the new full hybrid would be awesome and probably lead to an in-depth review, because I would expect these cables to be similar in many aspects, as both contain lots of silver and are hybrids. It would like to know wether the new true hybrid is "only" a different hybrid flavor or more like an evolution of the hybrid kind of cables, i.e. a real improvement and the way to go.

I've been following this thread for quite some time now and I still haven't pulled the trigger yet since...

I feel "intimidated" by the sheer mass of diffrent types of cables... triportsad.gif

If u wanna be safe..just go for the black widow 22awg copper cable if u have a more brighter sounding headphone like the he500. Go for the silver widow is u have a more darker phone like the lcd2 or hd650. Those are two full copper or silver cable (with a bit of gold in the latter)..and both sound excellent..so u cant go wrong i think..just trying to make it more simple for u.wink.gif

i don't think it's that straight forward. I have a SP on my HE6's and it's far from bright. I think Frank's SPC cables are supposed to be brighter than his pure silver cables, if I remember correctly from a previous post.

Thank you for your help hifimanrookie!

Yea, I figured that silver cables tend to be a bit brighter than copper cablesrolleyes.gif

I think the stock cable of my HD-800's are silver too and because I'm seeking for a less brighter cable in my case, the black widow 22awg copper cable might be the best to choose...*thinkingloud*

Man, I'd love to win that hybrid! I've never had a cable with any sliver in it, so I'd love to see what all the fuss is about, especially with the LCD2 :)

The French Silk Black Widow, is not very thick at all, i will try to take some pictures of it next to my other wires tomorrow.

 

My braider currently has several spools of my wires, which he will have the French Silk braided over, this will mean a lot of time saved on my side on sleeving by hand, meaning a huge price drop on the Silk Widows. If i am saving time/money, i like to pass that on to the customers.

 

I will also be offering the Silver Poison and Widow with French Silk.

I don't find my silver cables to be bright and do feel the Viper is brighter.
