Nice cable Frank, I really like how there is no heatshrink on the already long LCD connectors.

 

 

I beg the differ.  These one of the most finickiest headphones I ever heard.

 

You are the very first one I ever heard say this about the HD800.

Nice review jinxpad! 

 

Frank, I love the new SP covers, they look cool, but it hides the gorgeous cable....This is why I hate fashion choices....biggrin.gif

You'll need to differ in the HD800 thread so Frank doesn't boot our asses from this thread. HD800 to my ears and brain sounds good from anything I tried it out of but it does need a good amplifier to sound really good.

I am interested as why the cable is sleeved? Is the poison microphonic without it? I am asking Frank here long, sorry for the confusion

If I may jump in on this question...  

 

The naked Silver Poison can be microphonic if and when it loops back over itself such that braid is pulled across braid, making a bumping sound.  Other than that rare situation, it's so light and flexible I never hear it - as when it rubs against my shirt, for example - a much more frequent occurrence.

 

Are there any other naked Silver Poison owners out there?  rolleyes.gif

thanks for info Mike, I have a SPC cable from Frank that is unsleeved and cannot hear any microphonics. Poison must have slightly different tubing

Great review, thanks for sharing, i will link it to my IE80 cable listing if you don't mind.

 

Regarding the sleeving, this is just an option for those who like the cable fully sleeved, i get a few requests each week and decided it was about time i did something about it.

 

I do not find the Poison to be microphonic, and the decision to offer the cable sleeved had nothing to do with this. It's just another option.

 

The fully sleeved version will also cost slightly more, due to the extra time it takes to hand sleeve each wire.

It looks even better in person.

Yeah regarding LCD2's I can see peeps with Rosewood wanting the sleeved, new Bamboo's wanting unsleeved. Just my 2 cents.. Both look fab!

It kind of depends where the loop forms - if the braid-on-braid rubbing is happening down near the amp end of the cable, your not as likely to hear it as you will if it is up by your neck.

Yeah...but you have inside connections.....very_evil_smiley.gif

Have had my cable for a few days now and can say the sound is a definite improvement. Ithe soundstage is way better and even the mids seem brighter on the ie80's, which did sound slightly recessed before. I'm very pleased with it and happy to recommend.
