    Sure, whatever works for you, thanks again and if you decide to sell it in the end, I'm sure that it will find a new home rather quickly. As for your setup, R2R + tubes is plenty dense and colorful already, so I can understand what you're after.

    I hear you and I'm pretty sure that I know exactly where you are. Our reference points matter a lot. If for example one was used to a cable that has i.e. elevated treble, then any cable that doesn't do that may feel darker if not veiled in comparison. Conversely, going from a copper conductor...

    Awesome stuff, thanks a lot :) Thank you very much! Ever since I can remember I had a beef with microphonic and stiff headphone cables, so it's always a true pleasure for me to read feedback like yours. Like, really. Many thanks and enjoy :)

    That is correct. Agreed. That's my choice with pretty much all HEK versions and Susvara. Thanks for sharing. I trust that it works well for your IEMs :) Yup, logistics via couriers have significantly improved in recent two years or so. Good stuff, thanks for sharing and may I share with...

    That's the one :) I've tried that (...and several other parameters) some five years ago and these materials still sounded different :wink: I really like your setup. Very minimalist, but Mojo is great considering its size. To be fair, I don't keep track on other cable makers. I used to do...

    I hear you and thanks for your feedback. Although I don't know the cable brand you listed nor its products, all I can say is that every now and then some folks like other cables stuff better than my goods, which is okay. Variety isn't a bad thing :)

    Excellent, thank you! Thanks! Yup, that is my approach. It's either aluminium or possibly somewhere in the future wood. If I may ask, in what way? As in, these ICs break more easily? Or are they built below a certain standard? Thank you! The most noticeable difference occurs within first...

    Wow, that's one awesome feedback! Thank you so much :) Would you mind if I share this on my FB please? You're welcome, my pleasure, enjoy and thanks :) These CNC splitters I've been using for many years are aluminium, so their mass is very low. But I hear you, some folks don't like the...

    I would say that stock headphone cables are getting better (not always, but often), but not enough to make aftermarket cables unnecessary expenses.

    Thank you and I'm happy to read that sybilants are gone. I also agree that the difference in this regard between my cables brand new and used is quite noticeable. My pleasure and welcome to the family :) Usually from start to finish it takes us about 3-5 working days if we have all parts on...

    That's affirmative. We like green ;) Thank you and may it serve you well :) From my experience, any sharpness and excessive treble spikes go away unless it's embedded really deep in a setup. That's affirmative, no damage whatsoever due to channels reversed. That's correct. Our splitter...

    The internal part, so the socket itself, comes from here, so the place as original as it gets ;)

    Pure silver conductors are good, but situational ;) Thank you very much :) After looking at your upper photo the idea of returning to DAPs is very tempting :D May I share your post on my FB please?

    You have a nice selection of cans :) Thanks for pointing this out and I understand what you mean. The reason for these sockets is twofold: they're 4.4mm originals, so more reliable than anything else we've tried here. The other reason is that we always want to keep our prices as low as...

    If that's of any help, Noir Hybrid doesn't accentuate anything in particular; neither bass, nor mids or treble. In that sense it's the most universal product I have. If your setup suffers from sybilants and you'd like to address specifically this issue, then I'd go for copper. If not, then...

    I agree here, most balanced outputs on various portable (and desktop too!) products tend to sound better than their single-ended sockets.

    Thank you, that's very kind of you! May this cable serve you well and I'm really happy that you like it this much :)

    Thanks for your feedback! First let me say some amps are internally single-ended and have balanced outs added for a user's convenience (the second half of a signal is generated usually somewhere near outputs by i.e. an op-amp). In case of such designs the difference between balanced and...

    Awesome stuff, thank you very much! If we have all the parts, the usual order completion time is several working days :) We have mails with trackings automated, but every now and then we get info about our system not sending the message to some customers. Apologies if that happens and I'm...

    Although quite a few people including myself consider Noir as an audibly better product, I appreciate all the feedback and thanks for yours too :) May I share your shot on my FB wall please :) ?

    They're not directional, so you may use them both ways :) As for directional stuff, I'll have something to share very shortly!
