He's just saying that because there's no 2-wire 1950s equivalent cable. Except there is, and I have one 😝
If Odin got paired with a 1950s in any form, I would most likely not have. Thankfully its not this universe

I really like hero with M8, ikko CTU01 balanced cable and epro horn.
I still prefer SPC OCC cable to pure copper as PWA M2 or SPC graphene penon osg on Hero.
I lent some cables to my fried but I’d try also HanSound Nyx, CEMA Ps and ISN AG8 but I bet Nyx would be my favorite.

I’m considering:

HanSound Aegis
PWA Monile
PWA monile 1950
PWA Saladin
Grams audio cadence silver
PlusSound Exo Tricopper

Question... Have you heard the Legend X or Legend X SE?

Ok, so... If you like the bass of the Hero but are trying to alter something in the mid to treble range with a bunch of things, just go for an LX.

I'd say Odin as well but I would always recommend the Legend X pit stop before the Odin splurge. Very different signatures, both of which best the Hero.

Edit: To clarify, I really liked the Hero but there's no way to deny the LX and Odin are a step up in all regards.

Far Better? No. Better? No. Slightly different? Yes.

LX SE has leaner and tighter bass, a tad more treble and a 3-4db boost in the mid range. This is straight from the man Jack Vang himself.

Well, it looks like I’ll be listening to my LXs with my Odin’s Stormbreaker cable tonight… 😖
This is a really great pairing. When I had the Odin I found myself listening more to the LX + Stormbreaker combo than I ever actually listened to the Odin.

I just received the new @Penon Storm cable and it is an absolutely magnificent pairing with the Hero. I’ve been trying to find the best cable pairing for the Hero for a while (as you can see from my signature, I have no shortage of options) but nothing comes close to how perfect the Hero/Storm pairing is.

No. The difference is you get upfront mids and more treble. You wont miss much if you dont a/b them. As far as bass. Could be variance on units but my SE bass is right there with the X. The X may have 1-2db more sub-mid bass. For me, it was difficult tell without really paying attention and even then im not sure.

Anyone tried Cp360 with LX, it brings the mids a bit forward and tames the bass a little.
