I always wondered how washing your IEMs would affect sound quality. I washed my iBeats and Vsonic in the past and not sure if sound quality was actually affected or if it was placebo.

Still not sure if it's placebo or not, but I find that the Fiio X5 EQ mentioned earlier in this thread sounds better to me than the default sound using the silver cable. With the default cable, I preferred no EQ. Using the EQ, I can definitely see how the "veil" went away.

It may create a really "clean" sounding presentation, lower distortion

I received my SPC wires from Ted (HeadphoneLounge) and will provide my review as I promised. Here's the link:
