I just tried my recently arrived Litz Silver Reference from Ted. Simply put, they are AMAZING. My NT6-Pro's sound extremely transparent, much more holographic and imaging and separation has been noticeably improved. For 200USD it is hard to beat in terms of price-performance ratio!

Hello , i need some help here :rolleyes:


 i am looking for a cable for my 2 ciems and i want to ask you which one of ted's would be better suited for them

 

one is a very nice but v-shaped ciem and i need a cable to beef up the mids 

the other is NT6 which is considered a TOTL bright CIEM and i need something that would probably control the highs and beef up the mids

 

which cable would you suggest  ? what sound changes do you perceive when using it ?

 

cheers

Is the starting cable/stock cable thin or built using a high gauge? Sound will become better by using any lower gauge wire (thicker). Anyways to your question:

V-Shaped IEM: Copper
NT6: Copper

Ted's Copper Litz cables are equally as fantastic in build as his Silver Litz. Considering the price as well, the copper is absolutely perfect. While I personally hear small differences between the two material types, I'm not going to argue with someone who doesn't. Depending on the starting cable or whatever you are currently using, the change can be very large.
The Copper should tame the highs and make everything sound "warmer".

just wanted to say please do things with your moms while you still can as you never know how long you will have them.

So I did a test with the Campfire Audio Jupiter IEMs. I compared the sound from the Copper Litz from Ted to the Tinsel SPC stock cable. The difference is more than just night and day. Everything sounds so much better and the change is incredible. Badass sound for a badass price. Its amazing how amazing the Jupiter's can sing when everything is just right.

I have always feel a cable change to Ted Allen's cables are always worth the money and his prices are so darn reasonable.

I'm saying. I really love reminding myself how much a difference his cables makes. Top that off with the prices he offers for them is just north of insane. I can't really find faults with any of the cables I have owned. I have always been pleased with them and his service.

Ted will be the default cable maker I go to each time I need a replacement cable. Already bought 3 cables from him, and those 3 won't be the last any time soon. Not to mention he replies to my emails and numerous question almost instantly biggrin.gif Funny how he can produce cables of such quality for such reasonable prices when other cable makers are charging 2 to 3 times the price.

Exactly. Add on the wait time for his cables. He gets them done and out within weeks and not months, unlike other guys. When talking with him, all the things he uses are practical stuff and not some flowery mumbo jumbo. I couldn't ask to buy from a better cable maker than Ted.

Just placed my Copper Litz order for my W60 with TRRS balanced plug to ZX2. 

He literally replied to all my emails within 5 minutes! That's amazing.

Looking forward to receive my cable! :L3000:

I can concur. I just placed my order for a Reference Silver Litz OCC. Mr Ted Allen was very straightforward with me and he stuck to his principles in making sure I did not spend extra money on a configuration that in his opinion was not going to improve sound quality.

 

Utmost respect!

Glad to see you have a similar experience to mine. All my custom cables are from him and it's really hard to think of going with anyone besides him. Considering its all handmade, they are well built and much cheaper than any other producer.
Just as you said, he is straightforward and uses only what really matters. For that, I have only respect to him.

I concur with everything said. Ted is awesome , his prices great and his cables sound great. I got one for my LCD-2's and a balanced interconnect. I have to say I am mighty impressed.

Yes, Ted is a great guy to do business with.

post #555 of 614

I just received my Copper Litz cable for my W60 with TRRS plug. The whole purchasing process is speedy. One week production and one week shipping to Asia.

 

The cable is soft and nice. However I heard quite an amount of microphonic which I never heard of any with the stock W60 braided cable...

Is that normal? It will be quite annoying as I usually listen to music while I'm walking.... 

 

Anyone have such experience?
