But as everyone says here..once toxicated u wont turn back.biggrin.gif

The Silver Widow sounds awesome, considering that I already own a Silver Poison IEM cable and really like it, I am wondering how much better the Silver Widow should be.

 

Pls share your thoughts guys especially if you heard the Silver Poison before so taht you can make some comparisons.

I have both, I  use them on different customs. There in very tight so I am not going to be taking them off and on.

Miracle has the SW & Merlin has the SP. I have tried the SP on the Miracle,but prefer the sound out of the SW. It seems to have that something about it, bass & treble regions extend further than any cable I have tried on the Miracle.

The SP was a great match with the Merlin as I found I needed extra sparkle up top, without sacrificing rumble down below, which I was getting with other silver cables. I have not tried the SW with the Merlin as I said before they just locked on to the Miracle....I believe there in Love...wink_face.gif

Looking to buy soon... Any other successful SW/HD650 pairings?

I know this thread's been silent, but hopefully someone can help me...

 

I'm likely gonna get either the silver widow or silver poison cable for my IEMs, and the most important thing for me is their usability when gettin around because I only use my IEMs on-on-the-go.

 

Maguire or longbowbbs or anyone who has both cables:

How do the ergonomics compare? Which one "disappears" more? tangle less? overall less obtrusive?

 

thanks!,

Chris

My SP are sleeved and the Widows are not so hard to say about tangles.Neither is easy to tangle. Neither of them have any microphonics to speak of. Widows are better cables, but you will pay for the difference. It is a fair value though. If I was going to go with a new cable for my JH16's I would go with the Widows. No time to skimp now. biggrin.gif

Thanks longbow,

How's the widow's weight and thickness compared to the stock cable? I really value lightness and want a cable that I forget about while wearing.. The stock cables do this, but they don't make me forget that they don't sound that great biggrin.gif

Weight is similar. Widow is slightly thicker due to the braiding. It is a gorgeous cable.

Great review, I was wondering how the SP cables changed the 650's signature sound or did it just enhance it? If you had to compare the 650's w/SP cables to other Senn phones or any phones for that matter which would you, sound wise?

I think the SP's will be enough upgrade for my current rig or is it that much of an improvement?

I would call the SP an enhancement. The 650 is a great HP and my goal was to get as much out of it as I could. There are limits. ( that is why I also have the 800's!). The widow is another step up but it is more $. I feel it is worth it, but as with everything around here, YMMV.

SW cable is to my eyes twice the thickness of the SP. SW also seems heavier but in saying that I also have the metal splitter on the SW while SP only has the wooden ball only. Quality & Sound wise I prefer the SW. I have no problem with either cable in use. I could never go back to stock.

post #74 of 95

The SP has an outer diameter of 1.3mm while the SW is 1.5mm, so not that big a difference. The SW is also a slightly larger gauge. Although there is not that big a difference in size, the Widow does indeed look much bigger.
