My 8-wire hybrid came today!!I haven't got my miracles yet, so the only IEM that I could try it on was the crappy Aurisonics ASG-1. I immediately detected more detail. I will post pictures later when my computer doesn't refuse to let me copy and paste.

Thanks so much Frank for building me such an awesome cable. I will definitely purchase my next cable from Toxic Cables.

Hi guys

 

I'm thinking of getting my Denon AH-D5000 headphones recabled by Frank, however, i can't find anywhere, the acoustic differences between the cables themselves. Can anyone shed some light on these differences? I asked Frank but he won't comment on them himself :(

 

Cheers

I dont know what headphone u have or what ur budget is..

But in general silver cables always sound brighter then a copper cable who sounds more warm and full.
While silver cables are more expensive then copper cables in general that doesnt mean they are more preferable for ur headphone..its a matter of taste also.

For instance hd800 and hd650 and lcd's sound very well paired with silver cables like the silver widows...
A he500,he400, a k702 for instance sound good with a good copper cable like black widows 22awg.

In general..and this is ofcourse personal taste also..for a brighter phone use a copper cable, for a darker phone..a silver cable

But..as always its never black or white..and in this case black or silver..frank now has different kind of hybrids..who mixes the sound signatures of the silver and copper (and a bit of gold)...

But as i said..we can say what we believe in..its u who has to buy one...i found out by trial and error that on he400 and now my he500 copper sounds best to my ears... But am sure some of us enjoys a silver cable with the he500 as well...

Hope this is what u wanted as an answer.
Good luck

It's like a crap shoot, somtimes you get lucky!

 

Most people upgrade their cables mainly for the looks!  They may or may no be able to hears differences.  If you buy only one cable how can you compare, or know how the sound is different from the next cable!

Not only for the looks but more importantly for their durability.

For example, my stock HD 800 cable broke from normal use. (The plastic isolation at the end of the shaft of the pin connectors)

The main reason why I would buy aftermarket cables is because I want them to last longer than the stock one my headhpones came with.
