Its fine if you like that kind of thing though.

 

Well, I plan on using it with the dark Mad Dogs , so I wonder if it will even out.

Yeah, I think pure silver may push things over the edge for some people, I'm going to try one soon, but I don't mind hot treble, possibly hotter than average members preferences. The amp already leans towards cool from neutral and the LF switch contributes more so, thing is the LF switch is also really addictive. If you're not familliar with the different metals or sensitive to treble use copper as a fail safe.

Then again, I enjoy silver plated because it provides a touch more air with my sources. Start throwing different IEM cables In the mix you can really mix it up counter weighing the tone levels. All a big balancing act.

right on pure silver which might sound bit too bright BUT not so right on copper plated silver. i use copper silver alloy and find this just fine with C3 and BH both of which lean on the brighter sound of musical presentation. of course you have to accept some bit shhhhh... highs, which is typical story with most high-endish solid state amplification... nothing wrong about that. worst is when you receive highs rollover which will bring some recess in sound too. so i would not be toying much about taming trebles especially when you use EQ ... better switch off any EQ and learn to appreciate pure sound, worked for me 100& all the time even with freaking Cowon on which i used only minimal sound tweaking :-)

Thanks, recommendations for a pure copper LOD for <$50 please. The only one I specifically found was http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PURE-Copper-LOD-Line-Out-Dock-for-ipod-/281066897441?pt=UK_MP3_Player_Accessories_Cables_Adapters&hash=item4170e48021 and I'm waiting to hear back if it will work with iphones not just ipods, ie has the resistor inside.

For example, using a copper IEM cable on my RDB+ with silver plated interconnect sits well. But when I changed out the RDB+ to pure silver it was to much for me, mainly thinning out losing body and became a touch robotic over natural sounding. I could only use that combo at lower volumes.

Yeah thats the one I'm buying next week.

 

Btw, if you want it custom built just send him a message on eBay. ;)

Heard back from him with this info. 

 

About the sound:There is a subtle difference,both are detailed, my OFC silver plated sound a bit warmer but OCC pure copper is more neutral.

Does any BH owner out there own both the E11 and BH?


If so, could you guys upload a size comparison between the two?

 

Cheers.

My little BH is still burning in, has played non-stop since it arrived on Friday. Definitely doesn't sound as bright as the 1st listen.

I'll upload a few pics for in a bit.

The BH is noticeably smaller though.

By the way this is the message I got from the eBay seller that makes iPod LOD cables for cheap:

 

Hi Andrei,

Unfortunately I do not have white dock connector in stock.I can order for you, but it can takes up to 2 weeks I'm afraid, as I buy my connectors from overseas.
If you agree, I can construct especially for you a 7N pure copper LOD (OCC, cryo treated) less than 5 cm long,made of the same pure copper wire as listed,braided in 4.
I shall use the same connectors as pictured (Black dock connector -gold plated pins +Neutrik Rean 3.5mm jack-gold plated contacts). Silver solder it will be used.
It will cost £19.99 +1 P&P.
If you agree,just click and buy a pure silver LOD (it is the same price), leave me a message about this,and I shall send you your custom 7N pure copper LOD in a couple of days.

Best regards,
Stelian
