    no problem. I just found out when clicking to the link @Topbanana posted

    It is sad to see people discussing cables in 2019... although cables don't effect sound quality has been scientificly proved many times. Moon Audio cables are the biggest scam ever lol.

    Guess I not only missed those studies, but I actually put my money where my mouth is, bought cables and proved to myself that cables do sound different. There are scientific reasons for it starting with capacitance.

    *sigh* take the cable debate to the sound science forum where it isn't off-topic

    Done with the "debate" but as YOU all well know there is plenty of slightly off topic debate in threads!!!

    but the cable "debate" - for want of a better word, has been deemed off-topic by the mods if it is conducted outside of the sound science forum because it repeatedly derails threads. and yet it still continues ad nauseam in this one.

    Personally, the only reason I went 'custom' was to get a shorter balanced cable for a DAP without using adapters. IMHO cables are a valid topic for the Stellia as the supplied cables are shockingly bad! Lengths, connectors, microphonics and flexibility are awful. Buy these headphones and be prepared to spend extra to tailor to your need. The standard cables seem to be an advert for their desktop amp; they are very pretty though and suit the style of the headphone

    Style over function with the stock cables unfortunately.

    I guess this thread may solve the science debate as I doubt we'll all buy the Arche headphone amp and we all have to buy a new cable!

    discussing the stellia's cable and after-market alternatives is on-topic. arguing over whether headphone cables affect sound quality is not.
