I have both. Though I'm partial to the BW. Because i personally feel it's a better complement to the LCD 2 sound.

Frank goes through his PMs in spates. He's probably focused in finishing a batch of cables. He'll reappear when he's done and ask for patience as he goes through the backlog of PMs. smily_headphones1.gif

Ok here's a shot in the dark....

 

I have a Single Ended Silver Poison Frank made for my Sennheiser IE8's.

He's now sending me a Balanced Viper to replace it, So I have a spare Silver poison!

 

Heres my problem..

 

I have a pair of Beyerdynamic T50p Teslas that were given to me as faulty/not working.

 

After a rather clumsy fumble around with the original cable and then a spare Switchcraft 3.5 I had laying around, I've figured its the Jack.

 

Anyway, Its still not sounding fantastic and I know its down to my temporary measures...

 

So, Im thinking I want to use the Silver Poison I already have to replace the existing cable.

Ill leave the Viablue 3.5 on one end, But when I disconnect the IE8 connectors, How do I know which wire is positive etc ( With it all the same colour )???...

 

I have a multi meter but haven't got a clue how to use one!

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated folks, Thank you in advance!! :)

It's not the color I was pointing to. It was the left, right, common shown on the plug below instead. All you need is a continuity checker and you will be able to determine which wire is what. Your multimeter should work as well. Then you can mark each wire to know which is which. Is this what you were asking about?

I am sorry everyone, as my replies to messages have been worse then usual. I want to take a break next month, so i am completing all orders i have now, so if you are wondering about your order, it will ship this month, unless you was told otherwise.

 

All IEM cables are ready and being packed, excludes Venom. Headphone cables all ready, just the plugs on the amp end left to go on, so will start shipping next week.

 

Widow IEM cables coming with OM connectors soon, and a new cheaper silver litz IEM cables being made available.

So if I just messaged you about a new order it's probably safe to assume a 2 month or so wait? No biggie, I'd just like to have an idea.

Depends, we have extra cables of everything being made in standard lengths, but these will be terminated after all my orders go out.

 

All i am asking is, anyone who is currently waiting for an order, please be paitent a little longer, all orders will go out this month without fail.

 

If you don't get reply to messages, it's not me ignoring anyone, it's me working non stop to make sure all my orders are clear, so i can go on holiday for the first time in 3 years.

 

Non standard orrders can still be taken, but might mean then being made after i get back.

^ Excellent. I'll hope for the best!

post #6868 of 9358

Frank, go on your holiday you deserve it!  I'll keep an eye on this thread when you come back to place my new cable orders. 

post #6869 of 9358

Most of us take vacation every year BUT Frank has not for the past 3 Years.  He certainly needs a break to refill his battery :D 

 

Enjoy your holiday Frank ;)

post #6870 of 9358

Good news all around, we get our brand new toxic cables soon and Frank gets his well deserved vacation!

 

Looking forward to my silver widow with my HE500s!
