Cost was affordable and international shipping was really fast! Besides, Matthew is attentive, eager to help and truly a pleasure to deal with!
 
Right away Matthew's cable solved the glaring faults of the stock HE-500 cable: microphonic noise and the tendency of the stiff wires to get tangled and bent. Such a pleasure to listen to the HE-500 without having to keep perfectly still! beyersmile.png
 
All thanks to this thread for steering me toward Forza.

 

quite a seriously good recommendation, wow!

I have had my HE500 for a few weeks now and have been extremely happy with them. They are a clear step above the HE400’s which I came from.

 

The stock HE500 cable drove me mad and I simply couldn’t live with it. I just got a Forza Audio Works Noir cable for my HE500’s and could not be happier. The build quality and finish is second to none, you really do get the whole package from Forza, the branding and packaging screams of a premium product. It arrived a mere 2 weeks after placing my order.

 

Matthew at Forza Audio Works is a joy to deal with and I would not hesitate to order from him in the future.

 

 

Please excuse the crappy picture.

Hi all this is my first post on Head-Fi, been lurking for a while so thought I would post some mini reviews on some of my recent kit, starting with the Forza AudioWorks Noir HPC OCC cable that I ordered for my HE-6's.

 

I've started with this cable because I was having great difficulty in finding one where there wasn't a 12 week build time. I found this on 'the' auction site and requested a quote for a custom cable, within an hour had the quote and a 5 working day build time, so that was that I had my cable ordered with no hassles.

 

To start with the buying process from Matthew at Forza was very pleasant and hassle free,  questions were answered quickly and he was always very helpful. The cable took about 1.5 weeks to be built and shipped from Poland to the U.K which I think was very good!

 

When the cable arrived it was packed in a nice little pouch inside a smart looking box with good attention to detail! The cable is covered in a material layer which is nice and soft and very flexible making it easy to use. The Hifiman plugs and Neutrik termination are all very neat and high quality.

 

Overall the cable is very well made, the workmanship is top notch and obviously made by someone who cares about his products, also the design is very stylish, with nice detail and compliments my hifimans perfectly.

 

Now to the all important question how does it sound? firstly I know some people don't believe in aftermarket cables etc.. but IMO cables do make a difference and the HE-6's sound overall better, I don't really understand all the audiophile terms so I will keep it simple, to me they sound more authoritative with the Forza cable than the stock one. I certainly wouldn't swap back.

 

So a big thanks to Matthew for building me a quality cable and shipping it out so fast. Keep up the good work!

 

I've hopefully added a few photos below of the to try and show the quality a bit better than I can describe it.

How long does Matthew usually take for a cable?

post #51 of 311

In my case Matthew shipped the cable 7 days after I placed my order.

Speaking of the devil, Matthew just send me a mail saying that my cable will be shipped tomorrow. Sweet.

Already received from Forza the Color Series Cable and I really loved it. From the packaging and even the warranty and business card included. Highly recommendable! Thanks once again Matt!

You will not be disappointed, Matthew's work is first class.

I just ordered a balanced Noir for my HD 800.  Could have gone for the cheaper cables as I doubt I'd ever be able to tell the difference sonically... but I know I'd have that niggling doubt, so might as well go all-in.  :)  I'll probably get one for my HE-500 soon too.

Got the Color Series cable in, excellent craftsmanship! From the packaging to the warranty card, everything is just perfect. Will definitely order a Noir in the future. 

 

Thanks Matthew for offering such a great service.

After reading comments here, I decided to purchase a USB micro b male to mini b male cable. Later, I'll order an interconnect too. So far, I'm very OK impressed by Matthew's customer service and openness to customise the cables already on his website for the customer's specific requirements. Plus, it's nice to do business with a fellow European. I'm so used to doing shopping for audio stuff online from the USA....
