.i can assure u not all expensive cables are indeed an improvement over less expensive ones (or some very good made diy cables, URS?)...i found out it can be quite on the contrary...like silver doesnt need to be better sounding then copper eventhough people with budget skip good copper cables and go directly to silver, as those are more expensive..well..i know a guy (3 actually) who have more cables and all totl headphones (incl the abbyss) and totl custom iems and has for everyone a seperate cable, and his favorite for less expensive most is a copper cable (well..not just an copper cable..lolz)..he has (and had) very expensive silver cables also..but he prefers the sound of that particular copper,cable..the cable i also love for my code-x.
maybe u could use the words: better quality cables..as for 120gbp u have a very food sounding already..well..that cant be considered expensive right?
Ofcourse u have really expensive cables...but not all whats looks like gold is actually the real thing, my mum once said to me when i was a kid...same thing here...
Some people must think i love to spend silly money on stuff as i have the money..WRONG...i actually investigate for months sometimes before i actually buy stuff...and I HATE TO SPEND MORE THEN NEEDED...i am not one of those peeps who always buys expensive stuff because its expensive and popular with the elite ....i am not like that..if i was like that i for sure would buy a brand that would be flashy with brushed fronts and lots of leds... A certain expensive (respected) high end brand is wellknown for that..thats why they ask 6000usd for their amps..and there is a waiting list of almost year for them i understand...
And the diy guys have my biggest respect..like modulor..ur the man!! What he does with pads...u have to see it to believe it..and many more here... I support u guys when i can!
Yep, I continue to say it because in comparison to my DIY cable, with which I'm quite happy, almost every cable mentioned IS expensive, including the one I bought. So, I'll keep right on stating it. BUT, if you want to loan me some bread, brother, I'd be happy to put all those expensive cables to the Pepsi Challenge. Barring that, I will state my experience in actual terms. Not once have I said, I've tried ALL those cables... I've only ever mentioned the one for which I paid too much money; quite willingly, I'll re-stress, for the record.
Which is why I said, if you've got the bread (dough, moola, CASH), and think a $200+ cable will better your experience, then by all means, support your favorite cable maker.
I can't say "better quality cables," as I have no experience with those cables. You go ahead and use those words, and if my Bullschiit Detector goes off, I'll call you on it. How do I know they're better than the ones I make? They very well could be, and if you're inclined to believe that $200 will get you better quality, and if that assumed quality matters that much to you, and if you've got the bread... get it? It's a pretty simple argument.
I'm not telling people not to buy those nice cables, nor am I foolish enough to think I could possibly dissuade them. There are plenty of cables being made and sold. You won't find me spittin' in the wind.
Can $120 GBP be considered expensive? Of course it can.
Correction, I have one relatively expensive cable (I went as low as I could find) that I'd be happy to sell, if I'd ever get off my lazy ***** to list it. Pretty much everything else I made, except my cheap-o Amazon Basics USB cable that glows blue at both ends Just call me LoFi to your HiFi
Modulor is indeed the man. Not only for posting his excellent guide for those willing to make their own pads, but for being extremely gracious in offering advice and tips when I was making my first cables. He's a mensch, and no mistake.
