Have you heard the Phantoms on Janus? :wink:
Guys, I was at effectaudio earlier and tried out this combi. This has got to be one of the best combi that I've ever tried. If given the opportunity, you guys should give it a go too. :)

Good Question. I prefer the "Leonidas" on Phantom myself though. If i have to "Janus" on Phantom, i would go for Legend X :wink:

Hello guys, I am newbie here.
Need some guide and share knowledge and exp from you. My setup is
AKG Q701
DAP xDuooX3
AMP O2

I have 8 braided 7N Hybrid Copper (4x1,2mm) x Silver (4x1,2mm) and 8 braided 7N Silver (8x1,2mm).
Any advice for me to modding a decent IC 3.5mm jack and cable for Q701.
The IC jack have (L) (R) (G), total is 3 channels. What kind and How many wire I should pick and mix together on each channel.
For now, already tried:
4 braided: 1xSilver (L) 1xSilver(R) 2xCopper(G) => quality is so so, not really much different with my original IC 3,5 jack.
8 braided: 3xSilver (L) 3xSilver(R) 2xCopper(G) => quality is far better, it give me at least 20% more satisfied (my own sense), with more warm, brighter sound and a liitle more punch bass (still not enough).

I mixed it as my instinc because I tried to search through internet and youtube but no post or clip or guide about modding this kind of jack and wire (maybe my searching albility is not good enough).
So if someone can give me advice, or how to calculate or balancing the wire and sound, or maybe the guide or wiki about the effect of wire material/gauge with sound. It will be very nice.
Thanks...!

The wire is Acrolink 7N Silver/Copper

Oh, you basshead you! LMAO...:wink:. That's too funny Eric (I think that's you right?).. I have been told privately by a few friends that Leonidas on Phantom's is a dream match up, but that the Janus D is most neutral of them all. I love the stock cable to be honest. I know the difference between the Janus D and the Ares 2 and it's substantial and a bargain for the cable rollers out there. No doubt about it. Thanks for sharing dude. Can't wait to see you guys again.

They look great -- but is that a pentaconn connector? Is it the sonic equivalent of a pentaconn? (Sorry, I'm a big fan of those connectors, 4.4 equivalent of PSquared plug and ferrite guard imo)
Yups, its a Pentaconn Collab 4.4mm :)

Try your Silver on GR and tell us how it sounds :) You'll be surprised. :)

Yeah, definitely a good idea to try out first because (I personally think) synergy is key to getting the most out of aftermarket cables. And while you're there, try them all out. That's what I plan on doing, now that Eric has made me very curious about the Leonidas/Phantom pairing. :D

Perhaps I will see you there!

From EA cables, considering you are in EA thread after all :wink: and if you want to keep things smoother at the top end - go for Lionheart.

I already tried 8 braided full silver on all 3 channel of my IC jack (imgur image attached in last comment)
(L) (R) (G)
It is truly increase the sound, about 20% more nice, louder and warmer.
As your suggestions above, where exactly should I try my Silver to (sorry I am fresh newbie, so can not sure what you mean)?

By the way, I bought severals MiniXLR Female jack and ready to make a cable for Q701.
Any suggestion in mixing braided wires for me?
I had Acrolink wire, diameter of each individual wire core is 1,2mm.
Hybrid 8 braided: 4xCopper + 4xSilver
Full Silver 8 braided: 8xSilver.
