Sorry fiddler, but technically, for these tests to be valid they need to be double blind, which is pretty dang hard to set up properly. That's why this forum is supposedly dbt free

The Oehlbach definately has a different sonic signature than the stock cable. I consider it quite an upgrade. If the Oehlbach restrict dynamics then I'm not hearing it, I find it more dynamic than the stock cable. I love what it does for vocals. They aren't the last word in treble extension or energy, but I wasn't expecting that anyway. And the bass, it's great. Very nice slam and extension. The soundstage and positioning is also better than the stock cable. I am very happy with this cable and really have no desire to upgrade to another cable.

My comparison of the Oehlbach was with the 650 cable, which is an improved version of the 600 cable.

The characteristic sound of the HD650 seems to be almost a polar opposite to the W1000's. Also, it appears to be more of a step sideways rather than a step forward. I suppose I have to give these headphones some more time though.
