It's been a long road getting my cable, but Steve Eddy made it feel like an adventure every step of the way. It's a bit bittersweet now that my journey has ended. On one end, I got my cable, but on the other end I will miss my conversations with Steve. If you are looking for a fantastically well made cable, I cannot give any more praise to Steve and his craftsmanship. 

 

It is difficult to describe Steve Eddy's unique personality. But if I were to give an example, just give him a call. Before you even have a chance to say a word, he will begin the conversation with a "how do you do?"

Thank you for the kind words, kphfrail. Yeah, it was a bit of an adventure, wasn't it? But it was a fun trip and I enjoyed our conversations as well. I'm glad you're happy with your cable!

And now I finally know why you wanted blue. Those HD-800s are absolutely gorgeous!

Received my red cable yesterday and am very happy with it. Craftsmanship is superb and it sounds great!

 

And Steve is a great person to deal with!

What a badass cable, kphfrail. Nice work slacker, er, Steve. :tongue:

These are truly great cables; I cannot believe how they sound better than the Audeze stock cable.

Thanks, guys. Well, except for that butt-munch Paradoxper. very_evil_smiley.gif

That's easy!  Just respond with "How do I do what?" :biggrin:

So I finally received my cable 3 days ago and had some time to use it and gather impressions.

First of all I would like to commend Steve on his wonderful service and great sense of humor throughout the ordering and shipping process!

Repeating what everyone had already said, the build quality and ergonomics of this cable are top-notch. It's ultra light, rests in any shape you want it to and has practically zero microphonics.

 

As for the sound. I previously used the stock cable and that's the only cable I had ever tried. I have the LCD-3fs and they're connected to a Burson Soloist and a Schiit Modi DAC (yet to be replaced). The interconnect between the DAC and the amp is a VDH The Tide. I don't use any special power cords or USB cables.

Let me start by saying that the differences are subtle. However, they exist. 

I think I can sum up the difference between the Q and the stock cable by saying that the Q smooths out the edges. Treble-heavy tracks are easier to listen to than with the stock cable. Also, tracks with a low DR rating (6 and lower) that are too harsh with the stock cable are more bearable with the Q. This difference to my ears can also have a downside with my current setup. In some tracks I get the feeling that I'm losing some micro-detail, spatial queues and overall slam. But once again, the differences are very subtle. They're hard to notice even when A-Bing (although A-Bing is hard to accomplish with the time it takes to switch the cables). I haven't detected any differences in soundstage width or depth.

 

My 2 cents.

Now off to some more listening :)

^ I've also found the trebles on the Q-cable are clearer and smoother than the stock cable.
