Toxic Cables - Impressions and Discussion Thread - Page 411

post #6151 of 7211

Hey guys had my silver poison about six months now and for some reason. when my dx50/iphone 5 is in my pocket, the sound on my jh16s crackles/cuts out. its getting really really frustrating!! It works fine when i have the dx50 on the table and theres no movement to it. i can only assume its a problem with the connector? Any advice would be very much appreciated. 

 

ps. there has been no damage to the cable or iems.

 

thanks

Me too! It is an all time favorite. You get the full benefit of the tubes for either speakers or Headphones!

I have SW on HD800 but I don't find any problem with it.  No harshness in the HF and the bass is still there.  When compared with BW it is cleaner and with better music separation.  I found it to be excellent when listening to classical and jazz music. For vocals BW is slightly better.

+1 Same hear. I love my HD800/SW combination with rock and metal. Stunning bass control, speed, detail, dynamics while still being pretty full sounding. Absolutely no harshness or excessive brightness

How is it vs the stock cable? Is the SW warmer?

Cleaner, smoother and fuller IMO + other benefits, but I would not say warmer.

Hmm, so it doesn't have the same treble spike that the stock one has? :)

How's the bass vs the stock one?

I believe the treble spike is purely from your HD800's FR characteristics and not caused by the cable. BTW what is the S/N of your HD800.  For those batches with s/n lower than 15000 I was told that the FR curve has 6kHz spike in it. 

For me I don't feel any treble spike from my stock cable as the s/n of mine is over 20000.

As to the bass SW produces tighter bass

I have never really noticed the treble spike with the stock cable or SW.

 

I concur with Inter Voice with regards the bass, tighter and more textured but also maybe slightly deeper.

The Silver Widows have a small amount of Gold added into their mix. I do not know how Frank does it, but that makes all the difference. These cables have a better low end grip and are not harsh in any way for the top end. They are not just another silver cable.....

Over 20000 S/N here and there is a clear sibilance :)

Oh, and I wouldn't want the bass to be any tighter at all :)

My SN is over 20000 as well and the combo is sweet.
