It makes for a better signal. As cables are already a controversial subject I won't comment on how it might affect sound...

It's a cable i am still deciding if i will offer for sale or not, so i have not worked out the price on it yet, but will not be for the faint hearted if i do sell it.  Off the top of my head, it will be 3 to 4 times the price of the Venom.  I would also not sell more then 1 or 2 a year, as it takes too long to build.

Thanks David, I believe the cable make different to sound, just wondering how big the different especially come to more wire, I saw some ic with many many small core wire as well.

The Venom already uses the thickest solid core wire of any headphone cable on the market, and this cable has 16 of them. Not multiples of tiny gauge wires.

 

As with the standard Venom, the 16 wire is still flexible and managable, although slightly less flexible then the standard Venom which customers still found very flexible. Maybe someone who owns a Venom can chime in.

 

Flexibility of solid wires, especially rectangular, is all in how you lay out, configure and braid the wires, this is where trial and error comes in.

I just received my Silver Widow HD650 cable today and on the shrinkwrap around the Kobiconn jack it says "White Widow" and not Silver Widow. I just hope I got a Silver Widow and not a White Widow cable, or is this normal for the shrink wrap around the plugs to say different things? Thanks.

I suggest you take a photo and PM Frank who will then tell you if yours is WW or SW.

I am extremely sorry for the mix up.

 

The cable will be the SW, we did not make any WW with the RSA connector. You will notice the cable will also have the new aluminium HD6XX connectors, only the SW has this.

 

Unfortunately, my staff made a mistake and shipped all the HD6XX SW cables with WW shrink wrap on the jack end, i have had 2 other customers with the HD6XX SW cable report the same thing.

 

Unfortunately, when i looked over the cables for wormanship and testing, i did not notice this myself.

 

So you do have the correct cable, just the wrong shrink on it. You can continue to use the cable and whenever you are ready, even if it's 6 months or 6 years down the line, you can email me and send the cable back and i will have this replaced for you.

Cool, I'm glad to hear it is the Silver Widow cable at least :)

Thanks for the response and the offer to fix it in the future; I might consider it one day after I get some listening out of it :D

My SP cable shipped before Christmas and the tracking says it departed Detroit, MI on Dec 30th.  (im in South Texas)  I didn't know the US still had the pony express.  I'm super excited and can't wait... :)
