Toxic Cables - Impressions and Discussion Thread - Page 473

post #7081 of 7284

This is going to sound cliche but these cables are truly special. I had absolutely no complaints about the wait, I knew it was going to be long. However, I was beginning to fear myself over hyping the product as time went on. Now that I have them, I can honestly say that these cables have easily exceeded my expectations.

 

To my ears, the biggest improvement so far is the 3D presentation of the music. For example, not only has the instrument separation improved but the spacing is more obvious. Additionally, I'm noticing an improvement in both width and depth of the soundstage.

 

Its going to be a fun night of music.

If you can give us a comparison bettween the SW, Virus, and BW for your IEM, that would be helpful! I was thinking of getting a Virus until I read this.

I won't be able to do a meaningful comparison at the moment, given that I have not spent enough time with all 3 cables, particularly the SW and the Virus.

 

But early and quick impressions of the cables are as follows:

 

SW - Very revealing, excellent treble extension without being sibilant, excellent details and transparency. Alters the sound signature of my IEM somewhat (made it brighter, more transparent), and can be unforgiving with poorly mastered tracks.

 

BW - Very musical and organic. Not your typical copper cable, where you get all the goodness of a copper cable minus the muddy bass and pronounced treble roll-offs. Very clear and clean sounding for a copper cable, stays neutral to the sound signature of my IEM.

 

Virus - sound signature is kind of in between SW and BW (expected, since it is a hybrid of both).

 

Hope this helps.

I have a question. I sent an order via mail on the 14th of July. Can you just confirm that the order has been received by you? I didn't want to bother Frank too much at the time since he was about to go on vacation.

Spot on, DarkKnight74. Mootang, I like to describe the SW as the microscope into the music whereas the BW is the rose tinted glasses. Both have their time and place depending on your mood. And when you want some middle ground or just can't make up your mind, the money is on the Virus. smily_headphones1.gif

I think I'll change my order to the BW instead! I was thinking the Virus because it would be something new but what the heck! why try to fix something that isn't broken right?!

My rig is a bit on the warmer side too so I think a BW for my CIEM would be a good match.

Thanks guys!

Tip from someone who had the 4wire and now has a 8wire: Try to get a 8wire 22awg BW if ur budget allows it....as it improves the bass a lot and it hits faster and i have a feeling the soundstage improves a bit also as is the placement of the instruments..in short its a bit more 3d compared to the 4wire version..dont be scared..its not a day and night difference...but on the right rig the impact could be easily recognizable.
otherwise get the standard also wonderful 22awg....thats for most more then enough then they need wink.gif

Heheh! I don't have the best or most complete one: that honor belongs to Spkrs01. But yes, the BW is a good match to the 435: expect to add body and organic character to the 435 sound. The 435 is a very special iem in that it will take on any character of the other parts of the chain. So all the goodness of the BW will shine through. smily_headphones1.gif
