Ive done some more critical listening with my Scorpion, it by far has the most bass impact and quantity of any cable I have tried.  It still retains the texture, headroom, and detail in the bass that I love about my JH16.  The soundstage depth definately adds to the note thickness and there is a liquidity that is added to the midrange that I didn't notice before.  I generally prefer a very neutral midrange, but the midrange is definately sweetened up in a good way.  Treble has a little better extension and sparkle.  All this with gains is SS width, depth, and clarity increase.  I'm thinking about getting an over the head set of headphones just so I can fit it with a Scorpion lol.

Just recabled my Sennheiser HD238 with Toxic Cables SPC, great cable to work with, soft, and this was my first DIY cable made from scratch, I'm pleased with it. It also sounds great, more detail without taking anything away, overall a tighter sound, with better bass punch (not flabby anymore)

My pleasure. The cables sounded so good.

Thanks beerchug.gif

 

These headphones are great, the stock cable really held them back. The stock cable was sooooo thin and fragile, within a few weeks it breaks usually as the jack is really chunky and has no strain relief.

 

this is my second pair of HD238, first pair i had nearly 2 years ago, but i had to get another pair, i missed them.

Thanks Joe, I also just read your review.....now Frank says his best cable is the Venom.

What difference is there between Venom V Scorpion ?    

 

Wow with all these cables going around im becoming very in-toxic-ated.................man so much variety.

The Venom is an 8 wire 18AWG cable, only available for "some" headphones, not IEM.

His IEM cable range is as follows:

 

     1. Silver Poison: Pure silver with a dash of gold

     2. Antrax: Same silver as above minus the gold

     3. Scorpion: Pure copper

     4. Viper: Silver plated copper

     5. Hybrid: mix of Antrax/ SIlver Poison and Scorpion (8 conductors)

     6. Piccolino: Kick ass alien cable. Just kidding, crystal cable

 

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong

Correct, but the Hybrid is a mix of SP and Scorpion.
