    and one of the best value for money option to be honest, was using it for my sony z7s as well and preferred it over the kimber/sony effort overall, esp when it comes to microphonics.

    it's a relatively transparent/neutral cable but not in the bright sense of those adjectives, just that there's no emphasis on any band.

    I'd recommend the Alo Continental V5 amp.

    Thanks for the recommendation.  I think it's a toss up between the Liquid Carbon, Alo V5 and Schiit Jotunheim with modi multibit at the moment. The head phone seems to have opened up a little bit after 20 hours. I'm looking forward to my balanced silver cable coming in to see what that does to the sound. Really enjoying this head phone more and more with each passing day.

    None whatsoever....

    I would assume the Elear cable would work with the Beyer T5p.2 then?  If so, I would be willing to buy an Elear cable that one of you guys has replaced with an after market cable.  My T5p.2 cable is only about 4 feet long and I'm looking for something  at least 6 feet.  PM me if interested in selling your Elear cable.
    Ignore this post.  The Elear cable will not work.

    Not sure it will fit... will check. The Elear nozzle/plastic bit is thicker where the cable joins the jack.

    you assumed wrong :p

    they both use the 3.5mm plug but the barrel of the focal cable's jack is much wider than beyerdynamic's own

    no worries, i think your most cost effective, non diy option would be the 3 metre one for the T1.2 from beyerdynamic

    Agree.  I'm not a DIY guy and I have a habit of not keeping headphones long enough to justify spending $120 on a cable.  I was hoping to get something under $100.

    Mimic.com has a balanced 6ft cable for the Elear for $60.  Also has options up from there.  Waiting on mine but they were recommended by several people.  Slow turnaround though.  Just an option to look at.

    Should be mimic-cables

    Just got my balanced silver cable from Lavricables and running from my Plenue S. It's really opened the head phone up by giving it a wider sound stage, better seperation and more details in the music. Absolutely superb!!
  15. JLoud
    Absolutely right.  My bad.
