Very nice cables,  refined highs and vocals seem more lively, increased clarity,  when more instruments play in a moment it doesn't get as saturated and it's easier to pick up the instrumens?

 

Well the first moment I put them on I noticed a reduced soundstage versus the stock cables, maybe they'll open up with burn in? :3

Anybody seen what the Q headphone adapter cables look like? The photos have been "coming soon" on the website for a while now...

I have the 4-pin XLR-to-1/4" single ended.  Imagine the two plugs with about 6 or so inches of Steve's cable in between...

Thanks, HK, but I believe he was talking about the headphone adapters rather than the amp adapters.

 

And yeah, the photos of those have been "coming soon" for a while now. Just haven't had the time to take some "proper" photographs. But here's a quick and dirty photo of the HD-800 adapters I took some time back.

Oops!  Sorry about that!redface.gif  But those look great too...

OK, I understand now...to adapt your cables to work with other headphones.  That's what I get for missing staff meetings...biggrin.gif

Actually, you were let go six months ago. But because of a glitch in payroll's software, you've still been receiving checks. So we just went ahead and uh.. fixed the glitch.

 

Oh, and is that my red Swingline stapler? I'll just go ahead and take that...

That's right. And what are you going to do about it? Burn the place down or something? Pfffffft! biggrin.gif

LOL that movie is still funny as ****. And I say that as someone in upper management biggrin.gif

 

Interestingly enough, not giving a crap about my job did in fact help in getting me promoted!

 

Back to the pretty cables though -- any photos of the LCD-2 to Shure 1840 adapters? And, hypothetically, when should a fellow who ordered at the end of January be expecting his silky prize, factoring in the 10-14 business-day lead time?

Friggin' ay! Or was Lawrence a Canucklehead and actually saying "Friggin', eh?" biggrin.gif

Not at the moment. However they look just like the HD-800 adapters but with an MMCX connector instead of an HD-800 connector.

Hoping to ship by the end of the week. Between an increase in orders after the holidays and a bit of a delay getting a shipment of black silk braid, we're running a bit further behind than usual. Was going to change the lead time on the website but we should be caught up by the end of the week.

Thanks for the speedy update Steve! And just like you said, I received a shipping notification right before the weekend -- now I have a bunch of different gear in various states of transit, hopefully converging around the same time!!! o2smile.gif

 

I'm also assuming that the MMCX connector means a gold/copper coloured connector, and not silver like the HD-800 connector?

 

By the way, Canucklehead myself, actually -- I've never noticed myself using "eh" in my speech, though my Yankee cousins may disagree, lol

My poor Q has been sitting in a drawer ever since I sold my HE400 last year. Well, today it go pulled out its plastic bag, took a deep breath and jumped on my new HE500.  Funny thing is that I'm in the process of breaking in the HE500 and had the stock silver cable on it for the first two hours.  Really rough around the edges and I've read that the HE500 needs a lot of break in. The manual actually says 150 hours. Anyway, after I put the Q on, the music really smoothed out, lost most of its grain and started sounding really, really nice.  Is it the drivers or the cable that needs the 150 hours? Who know, who cares, I like the Q.  We'll see how the sound changes over the next couple of weeks.

Still sold on the Q!
