Very Happy With Double Helix Cables - Lighting->USB & Westone 4 replacement Cable

post #1 of 5

Here are pics of the two cables i just got in from Double Helix cables:

 

 

 

They are both of fantastic quality, and the lightning to USB cable is PERFECT for iPhone 5 or new generation iPod external DAC units.  I have a Sony PHA-1 and it works like a charm.  

 

If you guys are interested here are the links to the products I got:

Worth the wait!

Now that I've had time to listen with my new cables even more, I can fully put into words my satisfaction. Being disabled, I have a ton of time on my hands.  This time is usually spent in front of the computer, and it is almost spent with some sort of IEM, headphone, or earphone blasting into my ear canals.  Well, when I found Double Helix cables I almost wet myself.  I thought, could it be?  A place that was willing to build me a custom cable for my ‘phones that would make them sound better and, to boot, used the best material out there?  I figured there had to be a catch.  I’m happy to say, there isn’t.  Peter at Double Helix not only made me my Westone 4R cable, but he put up with my constant annoyance via email, was able to provide me with my package before I went in for surgery, and even made an allowance to send me an Apple Lightning to USB cable I desperately needed for an external DAC I didn’t know I was going to purchase.  You can’t go wrong with Double Helix if you are an audiophile, someone who likes music, or someone who breathes oxygen.  It’s worth twice the price and wait, so check them out!

Those are nice looking cables. How long did it take? I am not sure I have the patient to wait months but I will like a cable for my W4, turning out to be a fav of mine among IEMs

 

Glad you are liking them, stay upbeatbiggrin.gif

Not months at all, 3 weeks maybe?  His website says its a 4-6 week wait but I'm sure he's just covering his bases.  Even if it is six weeks, though, you aren't going to find better custom cables, I promise!

like the darker color like yours

 

I got a Venturecraft LOD in the mail and mini to mini from BTG audio

if I need another , will have to keep this in mind. My W4 will soon be due for a cable

Thanks for sharing
