    Hey Eric! You took a vacation??


    Awesome! You really need to take time for yourself (and your family) regularly or you will run yourself down. I hope you enjoyed it and great to see you around again.

    No worries, reviews will be incoming. Once the production is able to settle down and send out the Janus. Here's the lineup of reviews for Janus :

    Meanwhile - There will be minimal or nil degradation with the Janus Pigtailed adaptor. Ask Alex (Twister6), he's experienced our pigtail adaptor for Horus :D

    I know right? Was literally burnt out completely. And well, i returned to a huge pile of emails and paperworks :frowning2: PS- I saw your email, will be getting round to it later :)

    I hope you have been able to recharge your batteries, but that is indeed one of the downsides of a vacation... Getting back to the huge backlog of work. No worries about getting back to me, we'll catch up later!

    Were you on holiday Eric? I'm sorry for the messages I sent you while you were on vacation (I hope you have enjoyed it a lot). Shame on me ...

    Hey guys, I just posted my CanJam SG 2018 article on TheHeadphoneList.com, which you can check out HERE. Below are my first impressions on Effect Audio's two Janus cables, before I take a longer look at one (or both; who knows? Eric might be feeling a bit generous after his vacation :p) in a full review. Enjoy! :D

    Effect Audio

    Out of the numerous cable manufacturers present at the event, two of the most popular were undoubtedly Effect Audio and PWAudio. The former brought their usual platter of diverse conductors, from the widely-acclaimed entry-level Ares II, to the revered top-of-the-line Horus. But at CanJam Singapore 2018, all eyes were on Effect Audio’s latest releases, the Janus Basso and the Janus Dynamic. The Janus “twins” – so-to-speak – are variations on the same 8-wire hybrid cable; constructed out of palladium-plated copper and a specially-developed Effect Audio alloy mix. The differences between the two lie within the geometry of the conductor, diverging their signatures into two wholly different products.


    Effect Audio Janus Basso: The Basso performs as its moniker suggests – endowing IEMs it’s attached to with thump, energy and immediacy, as well as a light touch of warmth. Mid-bass impact gains physicality, but low-end extension bolsters its layering – deftly avoiding any sense of congestion. Complemented by a rise in the upper-midrange, the Basso undercuts its extra body with a quicker transient response. While the Dynamic has the edge in organicity and timbral accuracy, the Basso takes the lead in immediacy and speed. Though, that’s not to say the Basso is a bright-leaning cable either. A linear lower-treble does its best to maintain warmth, and vocals – somehow – remain as rich and wet as they do on the Dynamic; probably by virtue of the palladium plating. The Basso is also airier, but the Dynamic fares better spatially due to its superior linearity. Imaging is more precise on the latter, because the former is more forward-sounding and energetic overall. Listeners looking for an extra dose of speed and punch – with minimal effect towards timbre – should definitely give the Basso a listen.


    Effect Audio Janus Dynamic: The Dynamic is the warmer, smoother and richer of the two. While the Basso takes advantage of an accentuated mid-bass and a lifted upper-midrange to create a more energetic presentation, the Dynamic thrives on its timbre plus a light touch of vocal clarity. As a result, this iteration of the Janus yields a more musical presentation, but its linearity serves dividends for technical performance as well. Because of an increase in headroom, the Dynamic renders details with greater stability and precision. Where the Basso emphasises energy, the Dynamic prioritises finesse; releasing notes with a pleasing – yet precise – touch. Again, its play on balance – whether between the lower-and-upper-midrange to enrich vocals and instruments, or between the mid-bass and upper-treble to attain a warm tone – renders it a beautiful cable to pair with IEMs that highlight timbre. Monitors like the Empire Ears Phantom excel because of organicity, and the Dynamic only serves to improve technical performance – i.e. precision, imaging, soundstage expansion – whilst enforcing its natural tone. It’s my personal favourite between the two, but I can absolutely see why there’s a keen interest in both.

    Actually, that's true. I compared EA 4.4mm short adapter vs Horus pigtail 4.4mm adapter and the sound is identical. Plus, with a pigtail adapter it feels like a transparent cable extension rather than something extra that sticks out from the DAP.

    @EffectAudio Please respond to my email. I had the Eros II for less than half a year, and the left channel doesn't work anymore

    I'm sure they will respond to your email. It will take a bit longer coz he just got back from vacation.

    Anybody knows what's the sonic difference between a 4-wire and 8-wire Thor Silver 2?

  12. iichigoz
    Any recommendation of a cable for the Zeus XRA pairing with a DX200?
  13. PinkyPowers
    Did it not come with a cable? If it did, and you are looking for a change in sound, share with us your hopes (what you like and don't like currently) and we'll have a better idea how to help you.

    Could anyone suggest the best matching cable with A18/U18t?
  15. iichigoz
    It came with a whiplash cable. Should be a SPC cable. I listen more to kpop. Just thinking that I might want abit more bass from the Zeus xra without sacrificing too much of the mids and treble. I also want to get a 4.4mm cable so that I can plug in directly to the amp4s which I just gotten yesterday.
