Headphonelounge Cables - Appreciation Thread - Page 8  

post #106 of 182

polarity information.

on the custom/jh/westone/etc barrel style ends the letters face inwards toward your head so they are not visible to others.

i had more customers ask this as they didn't like the lettering showing.  before i used to mark with red/blue dots which align with front holes

on the tf10 style the L/R face outwards.

 

i hope this helps

the size i'm talking about should not fit in pockets as breakage seems to come from too small a case in my opinion. generally cases should come with a strap or snap connector to secure or a fanny/waist pack can help.

if you look at those previous pictures of metal case you clearly see the areas where the cables are going to be stressed also its not best to continually take pin connectors on and off of iems as this can lead to socket wear.

its easy to use shaped foam to help keep things in place or just flat soft foam glued to one side.

i've used 3x5 gps/psp type cases in past as they hold rig in place with room to put cable/iems around source/amp in a larger circle.

low profile dual lock works wonders

I agree it does look beautiful. The man is a real artist with cables.

Practical, flexible, sonically superior, AND a great value!

Yep

 

Currently using a E7/E9 combo at home, and been wanting to try balanced, as well as a bit higher end up Amp, so let's see how this works out for me :)

LiteKirby what `phones is balanced Hirose cable for?  I`m super interested in going balanced, too; looking at PB2 (or ALO).  Thinking about cables for my HD800 and possibly my new Shure SE846. Have doubts about balancing an armature iem.....

Have no doubts about balanced BA. I have both the SE535-J and the SE846. Pairing them with my RSA Protector and Ted's great OCC silver balanced cables is a great combination. M_Coupe also went with Ted's silver balanced cables with his SE846 and RSA Intruder. Once you go balanced you cannot image ever listening to music without it.

Post scrip: Ted Allen's personal set up is a balanced HD800 with his OCC silver cables to an RSA SR-71B amp.

It'll be my iPod Classic 7th Gen --> LoD --> PB2 --> JH11s

I have preordered the SE846 and cannot wait to listen to them through the Protector and OCC silver balanced cables from Headphonelounge. I am hoping that will be a sonic marriage made in heaven.
