Headphonelounge Cables - Appreciation Thread - Page 6  

post #76 of 182
Just returned from an overseas trip using my Westone 4R's recently re-cabled with Ted's silver IEM cable. Could not be happier with sound quality difference on all fronts. HUGE difference for the better. I would experience fatigue on sessions over three hours with the supplied Westone cable. No issues going double that time since upgrading the cables. I remain a happy, satisfied customer. Thanks Ted!

I would like something flexible and where it doesn't become a huge mess when I put it down.

I had the silver neotech cable from ted before. Its extremely flexible I mean ridiculously flexiable and soft. I highly recommended it.

I've had a Jena labs cable in the past and have a Whiplash TWCu here now and Ted's cable is far more flexible, the thick part will easily coil round a pen to give you an idea of bend radius. 

 

Can't really say anything about them not becoming a mess because like you I bought for utility rather than sound - mine's too short!

Thanks for all the feedback. I think I'm going to get the cable. Ted even informed me about a 10% discount since I ordered from them before which is a nice gesture for returning customers.

very nice gesture, what cable did you end up going with?

I haven't bought it  yet. I'll probably get the hybrid cable but after a week or two as I've spent too much money lately.

Rawrster,

What headphone or IEM are you looking to upgrade the cable? The choice of cable can influence the sound in different ways. The SPC and copper makes it a bit warmer while the pure silver gives greater clarity and tightens the sound from top to bottom.

I'm going to upgrade the TF10 however I am not a believer in cable making a difference in sound. I also would rather not turn this into a debate (and debates about cables are silly and never ending imo). Although it's a bit amusing that just about everything I own has a custom cable with the exception of my SR007. I buy more for the ergonomics of the cable.

Fair enough but do me a favor, after you receive them give them 10-20 hours and let me know if the Tf10 sounds the same. I am curious.

Ted suggested I go for the spc cable and I ended paying for that today. He definitely delivers good customer service and that is an aspect many of these boutique companies I've dealt with in the past overlook and just see the product they are delivering. 

 

I will try the TF10 after 10-20 hours and see if anything changes however.

Im glad go see this thread is drumming up business for ted. So people can get a idea,of his workmanship or revisit his workmanship if they nave had his cables in the past.

I haven't gotten my cable from Ted yet as I just placed an order last night, but the customer service so far has been excellent. He replied to every single one of my emails within minutes, and it was around 10PM PST, which is very surprising to have someone email you back at that time. He worked with me to get a cable that would fit my needs, and even when I changed my mind last second after he had sent the invoice, he simply cancelled the other one and sent me a new one.

 

Very very happy with the customer service, and no doubt I'll be happy with the cable I get, a 5' Hybrid IEM cable terminating in a Hirose 6 plug with a carbon fiber y split for my soon-to-be-here iBasso PB2.

 

The only other custom cable I've ever ordered was a Bugle cable from Beat Audio, which while it's fantastic in both sound and useability, had many less choices in the cable and felt more automated of a situation, simply purchase and wait for the cable.

Exactly my experience too. I am 99.9% positive the cable will further cement your feeling on Ted and his products.

Ted is excellent (his adventures too...). He made two cables for my Shure-425s, one spc balanced straight RSA plug in Hawaiian wood shell. For my SR-71B. The other was a copper SE cable for my Tomahawk. Both sounded superb. I highly recommend Ted for his expert advice, fine craftsmanship, and superior customer service and rapport. Will come back to him for future cable needs.
