With a family member in hospital, insane workload and a family, there is a lot to do.

 

I am going through messages now, so will do some now and rest tomorrow. I will also reply to those who have posted here tomorrow also.

Sorry to hear of your news mate. All the very best wishes to you and your family. I sent you an inquiry about a cable, but it can wait under the current circumstances. I can imagine how busy you are. When I do send/re=send you a message is it best to email you or PM you here? Thanks and all the best to your family. Cheers

Waiting on a new batch of Silver Venom wires and we will then launch a line of Venom IEM cables and also a more affordable line of Venom headphone cables that will utilize 4 wires, making it affordable for everyone and still retain the awesome sound.

The Venom has arrived. It is a primeval yet beautiful beast of a cable! Absolutely gorgeous though intimidating.

The sonics are incredible. Deep soundstage and smooth out of the box. So so organic. Very rich sound.

Compared to the BW, the Venom has a much richer & layered sound and there is greater resonance and more realistic portrayal of the music. It makes my fitear custom sound like a can.

There is a caveat: because the Venom is not an ordinary iem cable, do not expect to be walking around town with these in your ears. It should be noted that Frank himself did warn me about that. I agree: the weight and stiffness of the cable militate against that.

So, the bottom line is this: wonderful sound, but not for up and about use.

I am very happy because it vindicates my views about the Venom and my faith in Frank's craftsmanship. smily_headphones1.gif

Frank, thanks for indulging my penchant for crazy ideas.

Very interested to know how the new venom series differs from the widow series besides the ergonomics which is mentioned here.

Venoms use retangular SOLID 18AWG wire and not stranded wire (22-26AWG) as in the BW/SW, as far i know.

Hope to see my Venom surface one day from the snake pit biggrin.gif

I think he meant the new Venom IEM cables

post #6685 of 9356
I think the IEM wires are also solid.
post #6686 of 9356
If Frank intends the silver Venom iem cables to be like my copper Venom, they would be solid core vs stranded for BW. Of course, I remain corrected by Frank. smily_headphones1.gif

I believe all VENOM cables from FRANK are solid core :D

I got a HD800 and I really want a nice cable for it. I think it is a little too bright, but I prefer it without the anax mod more. What cable would you recommend Frank? I was looking at the copper venom, it looks like the perfect match for the HD800. 

post #6690 of 9356

I have both BW and SW for my 2 HD800s and IMHO both SW and BW works wonderfully well BUT if you prefer less HF then go for BW.  You can't go wrong with it.

 

I have not tried Copper Venom and from feedbacks in the forum it should sound better than BW, however you need to pay more and have to wait for quite some time before you can get it.
