This thread scared me off when it got to like four pages a day. I'm waiting for it to cool down after the new toy phenomenon fades off before participating. Life's too short to read a hundred pages of a head-fi thread in a row :)

.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... wink.gif

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  :darthsmile:

 

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.

Okay..i can agree with that u just said.....well sort off...hehehehe damn..never though u talked so much.. biggrin.gif

And yeah..modulor is a great guy...knows his stuff about modding a pad, i was one of the first getting his excellent modulor pads...and he is a nice guy to speak with..

I am surprised that so many people are selling their HE-560 quite shortly after the launch... It was not true with something like Alpha Dog or Audeze LCD-X.

So when are you sending Thurston your new power cables and expensive headphone cables for extensive testing and evaluation at Howell Labs? I think he has time open on his calendar. :D

That's a good question, I'm not entirely sure either...  I do know that a lot of people jumped on the Headroom deal...  I've looked at the FS forums and see they listed it for 750 (which is higher than what they would have purchase it for if they go the deal).  Otherwise, I'm not sure.

I was considering returning mine due to having too much gear, but decided to off load everything else and build a system around the 560. I'm going to try to go balanced with a 'powerful' amp+DAC combo (Audio GD 10.33: 6W@50ohm, warmer Wolfson chips). I've heard the Alpha Dogs and the whole Audeze line through some of the best amps (Cavalli, GS-X, Ragnarok, WA-22, etc) out there and just kept coming back to the 560. Obviously, this is my personal preference. That being said, I'm not surprised people are selling them, BUT I think a lot of people will come back to them over time. :D

I hate to say the 560's sound sig is "mature" just for the fact that it's not a 'fun' sound sig imo. Bass isn't going to shake your brain or anything like that and to truly appreciate it requires some getting used to/brain burn. Once you're in that moment though...you're like oh baby.. take the grill off. Or not, you don't have to take it all off..
