I would have to test again with different headphones as i only used my ATH-ESW11.
I bought a Venturecraft cable last week, but the Apple adapter was faulty.
So when i was testing between the two cables i was really trying to skew the results toward the Vmoda cable, but the Venturecraft cable continued
To win out in terms of space, '3D effect', micro detail and instrument placement.
After a good 30-60 minutes swapping the cables trying to influence the results i gave up and bought both.
Why? I figure i fill use the Vmoda for my commuting as it is strong and sturdy, and detail and low end can get lost within the sounds of the more noisy trains anyway.
The Venturecraft cable i will use for home and cafes etc. for more critical listening. I will also use the Venturecraft when i showcase the Hifi-M8.
Differences:are they huge? Well no,.... and yes. To my meagre ears anyway.
It would be good to try the cables with different dac/amps also.
I will listen again with other phones later and update this post.
Apple buds(old version)...yeah, I know-gotta make a low end base point
VC-Music `moving round` ever so slightly more.
Apple-Similar to VC cable.
VM-Clearer than the Apple.
VC-Still has that great instrument separation and imaging, `lighter`.
VM-Clear and concise. Imaging is better than earlier.
VC-Brighter, Great imaging, instrument placement.
Apple-sufficient, clear, good spaciousness.
ATH-ESW11- Testing Redux!
Overall: Both are good.
VM-Still emphasis on the lows. Brassy and bold. Clear. More punch.
VC-More even, clear concise, imaging is good. Even.
The differences are within critical listening and you could be happy with either.
Both great low profile cables.
Sound is slightly different with the Venturecraft easing slightly ahead overall.
How about a noisy commute you ask?
Well on a noisy commute the forward sounding, low heavy Vmoda Tuono is great.
-at home, a cafe or for critical listening the Venturecraft (its laid back, detailed centeredness is lost in a noisy environment and can feel thin).
Need to test more in-ears to see If its a cans thing.
Also need to try with non Audio Technica gear.Edited by ExpatinJapan - 10/25/13 at 12:34am
