Thanks. many people say that cables, DACs, Amps .... Need time before they works/sounds best! That‘s burn in!
I will order a cable for my HD 800s

I know what burn in is. I just didn't understand the question related to my post.

I don't believe cables have sound and I don't believe solid state equipment burns in. I believe the brain becomes better at listening during some period.

For my view it makes sense to buy well-made cables of good materials. From that you can expect long service life of the cable.

Well as I stated earlier I can't delve into this too much re my "contract" with the magazine I write for.
I wouldn't start up an impressions thread for no reason.
They are GOOD cables. Very well made. Great all round especially at their price point. And really good customer care, Which is equally as important as the product.

Received my 1.5 m Litz cable in Gun Grey from Jason yesterday. Replaces the stock cable which developed an untraceable break. Kaya and Jason took time to try to trace the break and trim it down but it really was untraceable. Cable sounds great with the HD 700's, lovely 'liquid' bass, good definition, deep black silence in between notes, detailed treble on cymbals and well defined 'feathering' on brushed drums. Quality item.

That cable looks ace!
I will post up pictures of the 1770's once I have them.

It's not just a cable. It's a balanced conversion on a new set of DT-1770 Pros. :D

COVID-19 Update.
We are currently all fit and well and doing everything possible to stay that way - we don't normally get out much any way so no real change there :wink:
We are all set up with workstations at home so we can still continue making products in the event of a lockdown and also have contingency plans for shipping.

So... If you do end up having to spend a couple of weeks at home and need anything from us, we should be able to get it to you without any additional delays

Keep safe

They also have mass loading and damping mods as well as being re-wired inside and out with our litz wire to squeeze a little more out of them even when used in single ended mode :wink:

Blah blah blah. It's bad enough I've been wanting this exact headphone conversion from you. Don't keep talking about it until things calm down and I get the money :D

I didn't make this thread for people to start going off on one in regards to their beliefs about burn in and so on. Please take that discussion elsewhere!
Anyway, moving on...
