That's some misinformation! OCC means Ohno Continous Cast, a technology with which very long crystals (compared to other ways of production) can be made. As Frank said, a quick search will bring you all the information you need.

Yeah was my bad. Somehow I read it as OFC!

Hey Frank, dropped you a PM.

post #5450 of 6966

In additional to my two Senn. HD800s I have just bought a pair of Audeze LCD-X during my holiday outside UK.  I will bring it back home after X'mas and I will compare it with my HD800 when I have the time.

 

You may wish to know that I will send my SW cable for my HD800 back to Frank for re-termination to LCD-X after X'mas when I return to UK at the end of the month. Actually arrangement had already been made with Frank for the re-termination work.  I hope SW works nicely with LCD-X, with fingers crossed :wink:.  I will post my opinion of the SW with LCD-X when I have finished the audition. 

 

Some photos of the newly launched Audeze LCD-X were uploaded here for folks' reference.

The headphone is made of gun metal and no more wood :wink:.  I found the overall weight is not too heavy and is quite comfortable to wear.

Would anyone be interested in a HD800 Poison, it's made with the new Poison wire and is single ended. The sleeve has a few scuffs on it that are barely noticible unless you are actually looking for it very carefully. The first batch came with the Viper logo on them by mistake, so i made this sample cable and rubbed off the logo, causing the scuffs.  I can knock £40 which is over $60 off the standard price just to cover my costs.

 

PM me with header "Scuffed HD800" and the first PM i get, get's the cable. Cable is 6ft. I will even throw in half price shipping. 

 

Please note, all the ordered Poison cables do go out with the correct logo, as i received another batch soon after.

Both use the exact same wire, the only difference with the new version, is that they can request the new version with the silver sleeve, which does also have 2 extra layers of shielding conpared to the non sleeved version. Other then that and looks, there is no diference in the actual wire.

I know everyone's into their black/silver widows now, but I'm still amazed at what the Silver Poison does for my JH16.  I picked one up about a week ago again.  The increases in clarity, bass control, soundstage depth, treble extension, and bass punch along with a fuller, warmer, sound and more note thickness really help round out my JH16.  I like the increase in treble detail without increasing brightness, mids sound more lush, bass tighter with more detail.  Everything is more 3D, the weakness of the JH16.  I might upgrade I dunno lol.    

post #5457 of 6966

The SW is still better than the SP for the JH16's but it had better be! The SP is a nice step up from stock for sure.

post #5458 of 6966

The SP is an amazing cable and for the price, it cannot be beat. If i did not feel it was good, i would not have had a new design made and still used the exact same wire.

 

No faffing about with a V2, the SP has been impossible to improve upon using standard OCC Silver/Gold strabded wire, belive me, i have tried. If you want something a little better, then the SW is the way to go.

Sorry for off topic.. 

 

Frank your picture are mostly under exposed ( too dark ), since you are using Nikon D90, just a quick tips to make the image brighter. There is +/- sign on the right of the on off switch. You can press then and rotate the dial to make it + value, it should change from +0.3, 0.7, 1.0,1.3,.... just increase to +1.0 and take a shot you will see if it's bright enough, just reduce or increase the value according brightness. You might encounter blur picture as increasing the value mean it's slow down the shuttle speed, just increase the ISO value i think 3200 should be fine since the picture size are so small for web use. Hope to see more nice picture from you.
