Pardon while I disagree....Mike's mod is a great thing for many people. It is not useful for me. I have also found the SW's to be a terrific pairing with the HD800's. I would point out that I consider cables to be a final frosting. They are not the be all for sound by themselves. However, as part of a chain they can be that last bit that really makes the sound complete.
If you are finding fault with HD800's, "Look to thy chain". I am running a north of $10K chain that took a lot of time to perfect to my tastes and it is wonderful. All the elements do their part. Weakness anywhere will be identified.
So....Thanks for your opinion, that is what we do here, however, your experience does not define everyone else's....
Sooo..if u have a darker/warmer sounding rig..go for the excellent SW, if u have an amp thats more neutral or colder...best way is to get a good copper cable..like the BW 22awg (especially the 8wire) or the copper venom rc4.
Question..did u actually try a black widow or copper venom with ur rig? Just to compare to ur silver widow?
Dont get me wrong..the SW is a top cable!!!!!! With the righ rig/headphone it sounds wonderful.
All imho ofcourse
