i did try a silver cable from another brand though..just to check how the BW would compare...no match...silver was to bright, to light in bass and voices sounded without any wieght in them..the silver excelleled in detail though...it was a bit better...but not good enough to make me want a silver based cable...but u never know..in oktober i will be attending the london meet and am sure some will let me listen to their he500 with silver cabling...or maybe frank finds it in his heart to let a SW go around in europe to try out on our he500..that would be perfect.. FRANK??????? wink.gif

 

Sorry I was under the impression you also had the Mini-x driving the HE-500s. My bad. But thanks for the info anyway.

Frank, I haven't been coming onto head fi as much lately.....just read a couple posts up and wanted to give your family my condolences.  I hope things work out smoothly during the transition.

 

Onto brighter subjects, I received my batch of cables from Frank......absolutely dumbfounded by the quality and beauty of these bad boys.  The night is young, a lot of listening ahead of me tonight and the rest of the week.  Thanks again Frank for all of your hard work, the wait was truly worth it.

Would BW be perfect for HE400 too? I know I could not afford He500 for awhile. frown.gif(

For my he400 i also used a quality copper cable...as the he400 is more brighter then the he500.. So i decided to balance it more with copper instead of the even more brighter silver cables...for my he500 i dont need other cable then this....but some people love ear splitting treble..the copper also gives the bass a bit more body compared to silver.
The bw is. Overall a very good cable for any of the over the ear headphones of hifiman..maybe except the he300..as to my ears that one was really dark..but that one is dynamic based.

I ended up ordering Silver Widow for my HE-500 after having a conversation with Frank over email and listening to his thoughts regarding his cables in correlation with my preferences for the sound. SW is definitely not too bright and it does provide quite fine detail in the lower end of the sound scale too. So I am really happy with the SW paired to my HE-500. I have both the pleather and velour pads, but haven't made any modifications, not yet at least.

The sound is very detailed and precise now.
