I have not decided on the final pricing yet, i am thinking in the lines of £420 for IEM cables and with 6ft headphone cables starting at around £500.

 

Please note that those prices are not final and may well be higher or even cheaper, i need to work out my final costs for manufacturing.

 

I will be announcing promotional pricing that will last a few days soon.

 

Edit, 

 

Just finished making a 4ft HD650 Piccolino order,

Gorgeous cable. If I were you I wouldn't allow them to be sleeved. Ever.

You see people spending $3000+ on a Dac with a >$1500 amp too....Interesting what sounds the best to each of us....

Not much different to any hobby I guess, know folk that spend thousands on Carbon Fibre bits for their motorbikes and I have been into the car hifi scene previously and spent 10k plus on systems.

It's very interesting but not in a bad way.  I say if it makes you happy then by all means do it.  I have people ask me how I can spend over $1,000 on a pair of headphones right after they tell me how they lost $2,000 at the casino.  And i'm the weird one?

 

I think if it makes you happy then go for it. It is easy to get out of control with it but it's all in fun and the resale value is good enough not to ruin your pockets. 

I also believe it's a constant struggle to find that ever elusive perfect sound.

I've been trying like hell to get some connectors from ultrasone.  I think I see a picolinno cable for my sig pros in my future.  How well do you think they would pair up with em?

The only way would be to get the connectors made yourself currently, i don't think Ultrasone can supply them, i believe they are overmoulded on to the cable by the looks of it.

 

Having not heard them, i don't think i can answer that last question.

I think you're right about the moulding process.  They are the best I have at the moment.  The speed of these cans is amazing with excellent clarity and depth to the sounstage. The only issue I have with them Is the lack of "punch" in the low end. They don't have enough roll off for my taste. I have been tube rolling which has helped immensely.

I will need to try a pair at some point, do let me know if you manage to get hold of any connectors for them. I currently have 2000 HD800 connectors being custom made, so i don't want to commit myself to any other connectors, at this point.

Just pulled the trigger on a Silver Poison. Not sure whether to go wait by my door Scott Pilgrim-style now. biggrin.gif

 

Anyone got any impressions of it with the Audeze LCD-2s?

 

As always, Frank was very helpful and quick to respond.
