post #3422 of 6967

I've just joined the queue for one of Frank's silver widow cables for my HD650s. The next 3 months are going to be the longest of my life now, waiting for these babies to be made. As a wise man once said "Good things come to those who wait" atsmile.gif

What cables do you recomend for the HD800 i want the darkest of the toxic cables, is there one that will reduce the treble slightly and make it sound a bit rich with a hint more bass.

As others have said, a quality copper cable will cure most of your HD800 ills. do not put silver near those headphones. They are already extremely detailed and Frank can steer you in the right direction with a good copper cable to smooth out the high end and increase low frequency response.

Here's some eye candy.

 

Audez'e Silver Widow with two tone French Silk. This is the standard wire with PE insulation, sleeved in Silk. I also have the Silver Widow in ultra flexible form, with no PE and just bare wire, sleeved in French Silk.

 

 

 

 

HiFiMAN 8 Wire 22AWG Black Widow. Fully sleeved and shielded, with separate cables for left and right channels.

Made this, just to see if i could do it, as i never done a 8 wire HE cable with such thick wires.

 

 

  

 

 

HiFiMAN HE-6 Hardwired

 

 

 

Sennheiser HD-25/Amperior White Widow

Thanks.

Yes, it's yours, but your adapter is still left and there are still people before you, so will ship in couple weeks. I made the cable, to make sure i could actually do it.

Adapter will be 8 wire also as requested, but will not be sleeved, just bare wire.
