Ok my fellow Headfier's - the cables have arrived.
Once shipped it took 14 days to get to me here in Australia which is pretty bloody good considering how useless our postal service is here at this end. Matt was an absolute delight to deal with and he answered all my noob questions promptly and patiently. Packaging is superb as we all know. My only regret is getting the braided version as I feel all I have done is cover up a work of art!! In hindsight I think the exposed copper cables would have looked a hell of a lot sexier but what are you going to do. Anyway, it's the sound quality that's more important I keep telling myself. The cables are extremely well built. You just know they are special and remember I have the entry level product. I can only imagine what the high end stuff looks, feels and sounds like. The price performance ratio is second to none.
With regard to SQ I have only had a chance to play a few tracks - Tony Joe White's The Other Side, Steamy Windows, Cold Fingers and You're Gonna Look Good in Blues. Initial impressions are that the Bass on the D600's appear to be a little more articulate and less boomy though still deep and powerful and the Highs have come a little forward and seem clearer. Mids appear to be the same but will test thoroughly later in the week whilst knocking the top off a cold one!! More than likely a few.
So if any of you are considering after market cables the folks at Forza should be 1st on your list of cable suppliers.
Thanks to Matt and his team at Forza Audio Works. I am a very happy customer.
PS Can you do a cable for the NAD Viso HP50's. Might as well replace the ****ty cable they came with. If any headphone is crying out for a better/longer cable it's those.
