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.


+1 to the silver poison :D lets not forget about it, share the love haha gs1000.gif

All my headphone cables have a 12+ week wait time, including eBay.

Well lookie what we have here biggrin.gif

 

 

 

 

Early impressions;

 

I gotta say guys, I think Frank has nailed it this time. I was expecting a good few days to get a handle on some kind of sound signature, but the Virus isn't so subtle. The first thing that leaps out at you is presentation, the soundstaging is seemingly vast and brings a noticeable improvement on coherence, microdetail, instrument separation and placement. Depth is on par with the Silver Poison, width improved a fraction at most, but the difference in height is night and day. 

 

All in all, it appears less bright than the SP, the upper mids don't seem to be pushed as far forward and is as a result less "in your face". In general it's a more neutral cable, outside the bass that is, which hits a new level of impact and throws in gobs of rumble, me likey. If not for the slight bass emphasis, I'd say the SP is more exciting, more attention grabbing at first listen, but also more fatiguing. The Virus takes the Goldilocks approach to mids and treble, sounding just right to my ears, neither forward nor recessed nor even slightly rolled off just very smooth, yummy and detailed. The sound tows the line almost perfectly between dynamic with bass to hell & back and rigidly accurate. 

 

Cable itself is gorgeous, my bad photography really doesn't do it justice lol. 

 

Will be a bit longer before I can review this thing, but suffice it to say I'm very impressed. Will answer questions if you guys have any beerchug.gif

Thanks for the impression Darkeat :). I wanted to ask some question regarding the virus Do you find the virus treble to be slightly dark or its perfect? In your opinion which one is the better cable silver poison or virus?

It's definitely not dark. Treble is less rolled off than the Audeze stock cable and there's even a bit of sparkle there. I'd say it's quite a bit less bright than the Silver Poison though, but maybe closer to neutral on the whole. Everything feels quite smooth and easy on the ears, yet very detailed.

 

As for which of the two is better, that'll depend on the headphone and the music you listen to. For what it's worth, I could see someone who listens to rock music preferring the Silver Poison and it makes a good fit with darker headphones. The Virus seems to play straight down the line, neutral with slight emphasis on bass, imaging/presentation and microdetail, it will be the cable that will appeal to the most people in the most situations IMO.
