They are flat and incredibly detailed with a bit of a spike in treble around the 8khz mark, making them seem a bit bright with some material.

 

Is anyone here using a Toxic cable with the Tzars or anything with a similar signature? I was wondering if something like the black widow might be a good call?

 

Totally open to suggestions :)

 

Any suggestions Frank?

I was waiting to see if others made recommendations first :)

 

I would suggest the Scorpion, or the new Virus.

 

If anyone wanted Scorpion, i actually have a few ready to ship

The Scorpion is ready to ship. That makes it even more tempting :)

 

That's pure copper, yes? How does that tend to affect the sound?

Big oops..i completely forgot about that one..my bad!! wink.gif

So if u would do some quick calculations..best deal would be a he500 with a toxic cable already included as the standard cable is rubbish imho...in other words..u would still have to invest extra for an aftermarket cable on top of the he500 price..

so the price frank sells them for is very very very good! Maybe even better then the 699 euro on the mainland..

for european people buying from out of europe can be a nightmare financially if u consider postage and those scumbags of customs (here in the netherlands they calculate 30-35% extra for taxes and handling on top ofthe total price mad.gif ..

ps..the total price includes the postage itself redface.gif

so a 699 usd phone can turn out very expensive in the end if u buy them from out of europe..thats my experience anyway with nos tubes and some other audio related stuff from the states. Wish it was differently!!

Sorry dude, i never comment of the differences you can expect with my cables.

 

Yes, it's pure 7N OCC Cryo copper. It's very popular with customers looking for IEM cables, especially customers in Singapore, as the Scorpion has had some very good feedback on forums there, which i am not allowed to post links of here.

That's fair enough Frank. I just pm'd you, so you can ignore that. Have you got a Scorpion ready to head out the door then? :)

Scorpion improves the deep bass quantity,quality and cleans up the spectrum while adding depth and width to the SS.

As a Singaporean, I can attest to that :)
