let's guess if the patent was registered locally there or globally? i am no expert of patent registration.
but there is no feedback from effect, to pay and get authorization to produce or to stop selling?
this becomes interesting

They seems to not want to reply and only shoving the blame to OE Audio who oems for them.

Actually, not the first time EA plagiarised ... haha

I heard EA will be issuing a statement to clear things up, very soon.

And was told my cables already arrived and in a process of being upgraded. Very curious how it will look and function. Using 2pin cable with mmcx adapter and FirAudio M5 was functional, but not comfortable. This should solve the problem.

To our valued EA customers and fellow audio enthusiasts,

ConX was built from the idea of relieving the frustrations of having to deal with different IEM connectors. We truly believe this is a product which can help all audiophiles, which is why we decided to price it affordably and make the service available for all cables, regardless of brand.

Over the last few days several Head-Fi’ers have expressed that the concept of an interchangeable connector was released by Tomy Audiophile before ConX.
The original design and development of the ConX system however has been a long and arduous process, which we undertook well before there were similar designs in the market.

Once made aware of this potential conflict, we nevertheless immediately reached out to Tomy Audiophile. Tomy Audiophile and Effect Audio quickly established common ground based on mutual respect, as both brands share the same vision of improving all audiophiles’ experience and meaningfully helping this community.

With that, ConX will remain available as an upgrade for all interested Head-Fi’ers.

We wish Tomy Audiophile the best of success, and thank all of you for your support and interest for our products over the years.

So all new cables purchased from Effect Audio will come with the new connectors?
In case this is still unclear, ConX will indeed be available as option for all new cables.

The 2 brands actually have a different design, so the systems will not be interchangeable...

Just wanted to share something fun. While working on my ‘Masters of Classical Music’ review series I finally got the opportunity to revisit an old favourite pairing of mine, the Vision Ears VE5 with Lionheart.

_MG_0827.JPG

I have always said that key to getting the most from an aftermarket cable is to find optimal synergy. It isn’t always the case that the most expensive cable is “the best” because strong synergy can easily provide a better result for personal preferences. A couple of years ago I found that there was very special synergy between Lionheart and the VE5 and even now I still consider this pairing to be one of my absolute favourites.

Funny thing was that I had not heard this pairing in nearly three years and I was wondering if I would feel the same today as I did back when I first heard it. Turns out I do and I might love it even more now than I did back then. Moreover, I recently got the Shanling M8 in for a review and it turns out that this chain has outstanding synergy. I absolutely adore it!

I find this pairing has a unique presentation that I would call “focused”, as if extra attention is being paid to every element. That is why I consider this pairing especially strong at reproducing intimate classical music such as string quartets or concertos. Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons for instance is astonishingly good, as the solo violins come up with great focus and transparency. Vocals too shine with this pairing and are some of the very best I have heard to date. Crystal clear with just a hint of sweetness to avoid the bite some soprano voices can have. The balance between male and female vocals is outstanding and while the VE5 have a very restrained bass, male vocals still have excellent authority.

My full classical music review will come next month, but after a few hours of listening I was so beguiled that I wanted to share some initial thoughts. I have not used Lionheart much in recent times and always regretted that because it is still very much one of my favourite cables and a very special one in EA’s lineup. A hint of warmth and intimacy while imbuing notes with an organic fluidity, at the same time it adds airiness and a lovely sparkle.
Been a bit distracted past days but wonderful post as usual, thanks for sharing! Seems like a magical pairing, looking forward to the full review.

Hi,

I'm thinking of replacing my Rhapsodio Infinity II stock cable and I was wondering if the Code 51 could be a good candidate?
My source is a AK SP2000.
What will be the benefits regarding sound quality?
And is the Code 51 soft and confortable? I find the Infinity II stock cable very stiff.

Any other cable to recommend for the Infinity II?

Thanks!
If you're considering Code 51, expect an in increase in resolution and transparency; a greater amount of detail and overall finesse to the sound. If you value technical performance and can afford it, you can't go wrong :wink:

Concerning other cables, it depends on what kind of sound are you looking for? Let us know and maybe I or others can help.
