    interesting opinion, thanks!
    Fortunately or unfortunately, but most of the stock cables could not reveal full potential of headphones. Cheap materials/ plugs are used in stock cables to gain more margin for companies.

    Aftermarket cables could afford premium materials/ geometry/ connectors which could provide better overall performance. Moreover it's a known fact same as that silver sounds open and neutral while silver plated copper could be bright and boring sometimes.

    Diana is a great set of headphones and there is no doubts here. We are pleased that it sounds even better with silver than with the stock cable. Of course, there might be better cables available on the market, however price/ performance ration should be taken into consideration here. Also it would be wise to assess cables by their sound/ built quality/ etc, not just by pics. Otherwise it won't be valuable opinion. :)
    What's the most core cable you guy's make? I seen that you guy's had a diamond series that has 28.

    WM1Z in HI Gain mode is plenty loud for me for home use. DMP-Z1 can play much much louder and sounds stunning with Diana Phi.

    I did a side by side comparison between stock cable and Superconductor this weekend. The stock cable is no slouch... the Super is much more weight, depth, details, and elevation in the soundstage. The Superconductor does not mess with the character of the sound signature. It elevates it which is what a good upgrade cable should do.

    Key word: "relatively".

    Compared to the Wa11 Topaz the Sony referenced is relatively weak. I have no doubt that the transducer, given its specs, will be driven fine with the Sony WM1Z.

    28 core cable? :thinking: How have I lived my whole life with only positive and negative?

    You're in the wrong thread preaching about cheap cable materials ABYSS_SMILEY_1266-1.png

    Hey Guys,

    I just did, or tried to do, my first video review. I decided to do it about the Diana Phi. Its my first try, so please give me any feedback you have, on things I can improve. Lighting is a big one, so I'm going to work on that. I'll also try to talk about the sound a bit more next time. Apart from that, your guys suggestions are key. Thanks for watching if you take the time to, I really appreciate it :)

    Okay, lighting, just get a light :). And I can't hearrrrr youuuuu! lol otherwise I think it's okay,

    I thought it was a great review :) And it's making me more excited when i get my own pair tomorrow.
    I sound like such a dac lol. I was just being sarcastic.

    OK. Lights I can figure out. Sound, I'll talk louder and closer to the mic. Thanks man.

    Thanks man. Thats exciting, I really hope you enjoy them.
    I've never attempted my own "video" review because I think my voice will sound like schiit lol. Hey, at least you tried brother, always after a few times, things get much better with everything.

    Decent 1st ever video review. Thanks for posting it.

    Did Abyss update the original Diana headband too? Also, is it possible to get the original Diana with the Phi pads?
  14. ufospls2
    I don't believe so on the original Diana headband, but I could be wrong. @Joe Skubinski would be the best person to ask.

    I believe the Phi pads will be available for purchase separately, but due to the difference in the headbands, might not work well on the original Diana. Again, Joe will know better than me :) Remembering the time I tried the original Diana, the difference in the headbands isn't huge.
    I retract some of my statement earlier about your review, i got to listen to it at home instead of the office and can hear everything clearly. And with everything you just said it sounds like the Utopia on steroids. I want them! This will be my main focus for Canjam.
