What sound qualities make you prefer the Vanquish?

All of my cables are Audeze mini zlr's, but I have adapters for Alpha Dog and Hifiman, the Hifiman adapter is the Ultrashort with the mini xlr pins soldered directly to the SMC connector!  My Alpha Dog adapters use Solv X wire, recommended!

Regarding the connectors getting loose, with just the right amount of torque it shouldn't get loose too easily. If you can't achieve that amount of torque with your fingernails, try wrapping a tiny piece of paper around the nut and then use a plier to torque it. The paper is to protect the nut from being scratched by the plier. This method should provide just enough torque. Careful not to overdo it--these things are connected to plastic, not steel.

Clean neutral presentation of a track as a whole, i feel that treble more aggressive with Draug

My Vanquish uses 4 pin mini XLR on headphones side

My second replacement HE-560 just came in the mail and all the rattles are gone thankfully. I must have been the most unlucky buyer. All is good now!

 

PS: this and my previous one have a thinner black wire inside the cup instead of a thick silver one. Might be to reduce the refelctions inside the cup.

Great to hear! I will have a look for a pair manufactured in 2015 sometime next year to avoid early batches problems.

I have a second pair coming in with my Pulse X later this year. I hope that one will be problem free aswell.

If the treble is more aggressive with the Draug, why do so many say if is very good with the HD800?

Because it's not the case with HD800, this the best cable for HD800 I own

 So, you just like the Vanquish better with the HE560?
