I have been using my new balanced silver widow with my HD800's for the last few days. Very smooth & extended highs and powerful, deep impactful bass. No smoothing of treble or low frequency boost needed. wink_face.gif

 

If you have no issues with the quantity of bass or the quality of treble with the HD800's then you don't need to avoid a high quality silver or silver/gold cable.

It ofcourse also depends on the rest of ur rig if a silver cable will sound to bright...

but in the end..its a personal taste...for some ears bright is right... wink.gif

Silver/Gold is the point. I have two types of Silver/Gold-cables in my rig, and what they do is this: more detail, less harshness! Seems contradictory, but works very well for me.

Dear goddess of everything audiophile, toxic & sexy, But daymn that cable looks better than I imagined, And I imagined something pretty special!!!

I thought my IE8 Silver Poison was amazing, but this....

Frank you're a genius, artist & generous man. 

And I still have 3 or 4 cables to come. 

Seriously chuffed right now! Once its all paired up its gonna look pretty damn awesome let alone sound epic!

For anyone waiting still, This and the others show Franks commitment to what he does!

This was a prize and thus a free cable yet its still had every ounce of blood sweat & tears 

lovingly thrown at it. Well worth the wait biggrin.gif

 

I may have other cables too but Toxic Cables is a company that demands respect imo.

there's just something in the quality that has an edge over the rest ( Of what I own at least )

 

I can say with confidence you've most definately gained another regular and faithful customer mate :)

Agreed. I have a Venom usb cable, Siltech silver/gold interconnects and a 8 wire silver poison on my LCD-2s. All the detail, super smooth and none of the shouty and hard mids I have had with lesser silver cables in years gone by.

Sorry if this was covered earlier in the thread but I can't seem to find the answer with the search function.

 

What is the difference between the Silver Poison and the Silver Widow?

It seems to have vanished.biggrin.gif I was contacted yesterday and today by the organizer regarding a fee for those clips, first i heard of this.  Unfortunately i have had to decline.

 

It's up to the organizer who recorded it, what they do with their video, so not much can be said.

 

Who needs a headphone manufacturer complimenting my cables when i have all you guys to do it. biggrin.gif
