I am about to order my first set of Toxic Virus Balanced cables from Frank! Awaiting some queries that I just sent him and hope to order today or by tomorrow. So excited!

I am due a silver venom from Frank. smily_headphones1.gif I'll let you know what I think in terms of sig and SQ between the two Venoms when I receive it.

Please note that my copper venom is an iem cable and I listen through Fitear customs. smily_headphones1.gif

Your description of the Copper Venom's sound is spot on!

The Copper Venom is a near- perfect match for the HD800 and the HE-6. For "warm" or "dark" headphones like the LCD2/3, the Silver Poison or Silver Widow is a better match.

I had little adaptors made that allow me to swap cables between different cans before committing to buy. Useful and money-saving gadgets!

I use the Copper Venom with the 4-pin XLR connector on the HE-6 and HE-560 and it works phenomenally well.

I have never used the Black Widow. Would you care to enlighten me on the difference?

THANK!

I still dont have my venom yet..kiats has both (4wire versions) and he explained the diffrences already.
I love my bw a lot..doesnt siund like any other copper cable from other brands i heard... as i said before..my new 8wire copper venom better be better..as hearing how natural my specific custom bw sounds its almost unbelievable if that can be bettered..i have to say though..i went up from 4wire bw to this monster..and it was much better in every way: bass more controlled and faster, sounstage increased..music got more organic..less digital..treble stayed more or less tge same..midrange improved also..especially the lower female voices..

. could be because of dual mono concept or the 8wires or the xlr connectors with hollow rodium plated pins..dont know..but it delivers...and it looks so yummy..like two fat black snakes coming out of ur headphone and still is on the right side of 400gbp. wink.gif

Hi guys. Is the Copper Venom the best cable for HD800 and HE6? Or are there better choices? I am looking to minimise the stridency of both cans and maximising bass response, whilst retaining soundstage and not losing too much detail. 

 

I am currently using the Silver Poison with the HE-6 and it has less perceivable bass than the stock cables. I also have the Endorphin SAA for the HD800 but it has broken down (no sound coming out from it) so I am looking at Frank's cables which are better built.

 

Thanks!

the copper venom rc4 (4wire) or the 8wire copper venom..but more affordable and also very very very good:..a 8wire 22awg BLack Widow..bass is very good but best thing: it keeps (and improves) the best Atributes of the he6 and hd800, those are not muffeled as with lots of other regular copper cables...
As second choice u coukd go for a mix...the virus is a very good midrange (25awg) hybrid cable with the qualitites of a silver and copper cable..
But most favorite for the he6 or hd800 would be the ones i mentioned above. The venoms and the BW...as they give more flesh to the bones in the music.

It's Christmas time......


Black Widow USB cable


HD600 Silver Poison in RSA


Black Widow with trans black PE sleeved for AKG 240 II


The new carbon fiber plug and adapter


8 wires 4 pins XLR balanced Virus with silky sleeved for MrSpeakers Alpha Dog and 8 wires adapter cables for RSA and single-ended. These are really soft!

And a couple of LOD USB cables. Those were several orders and shipped in once at a time due to some reasons.Off course it's a long wait, but reasonable. I look at these cables, thinking if it's me to make these and how long I might wait to myself, I just appreciate there's a man called Frank on earth and I can get all the great stuff simply order and wait. I just receive those and honestly I really get addicted to this hobby. "what should I get for my LCD2/HD800/any CIEM?", really non-stop conversations in my head. All thanks to good Frank himself! Bon Voyage, Frank! I salute your great works and I'll see you soon after you're back!

Did i charge you extra for the silk, if so remind me to refund you when i get back for that, as i am doing it same price as a offer while i am away, so not fair you paying more, when you only just received the cable while the offer is running.

 

I will be in the middle of the ocean this time tomorrow. Will need your guys help, i ave shipped as many cables as i could and only a handful are left, many are ones that had adapters with them, some i shipped without this and will ship rest when i get back, rest i will have to do when i get back.

 

I will have my staff see if he can email all those that did not make it, these will be done the same week i get back, i will also give a free retermination to each of those customers, so when you change headphones/amp, no need for new cable.

 

If you notice anyone asking, please do let them know i am away, would be a great help.

 

Please remember to ingore those that could start an argument on the thread, would not want it getting locked and keep the thread alive.

 

Have a great summer guys, luv ya all.
