Finally bought the fidelio x1. I liked the phone, but one thing is driving me intrigued.
I absolutely could not hear any difference between the original x1 cable and other cables I tested here.
Everyone here who tested another cable detect differences? Tested with some songs and all seemed the same to me, whether with the original cable or another.
Sorry for my english,its not my first language.
Tests have yielded results suggesting that the Fidelio X1's stock cable has a high resistance compared to other cables. It doesn't matter though, if you're running off of a powerful source like a laptop or PC. Maybe if you're using an iPod or something like that.
I don't buy that it makes a difference; we're talking, like, not even an ohm apart from a V-Moda cable. I haven't tested it, but I highly doubt it matters.
