Absolutely amazing! I'm really happy that you like these cables, and at the same time I'd like to ask for your permission to post these on my FB!
Of course, please post away! Thanks for asking!

Well reading all the glowing reports of how good these cables are I had to order the Noir Hybrid HPC cables for my HD800s. So looking forward to the day they arrive.

I have a 2 metres Noir Hybrid HPC coming for my HD800.

Mat has built me some beautiful Claire Cables. They sound great and look great. I'm planning to order more :slight_smile:

The Forza's look nice, would have loved for them to still offer their Copper Series HPC Mk2 "Extended Bass" version.

P.S I know Hifiman stock cable how.... cxap they are....
I wish all manufacturers would take the path of cables as an additional product, not bundled with the HP itself, take the path of recent mobile phones. Help reduce waste and save the environment. Mine are all in their boxes still. If someone needed cables, they can include it as an additional item with the purchase of the HP.

That which is 'new' does not make the 'old' redundant. :) This is my HD800 bought new in 2017. This Sennheiser flagship hits the market in 2009. Jude showcase it in Jan 8th 2009. https://www.head-fi.org/threads/the...t-listen-the-first-review.398829/post-5255929

5 days ago I received the Noir Hybrid HPC cable for the HD800. It's a 2 metre xlr terminated cable. I had a 1.5 metre cable but that went to my son. Now he bought this longer cable for me instead. Before this Noir cable came I was using the HD800 original cable and that was good but my oh my... when I swap over to the Noir, I was absolutely certain that I am hearing it different. It's more vibrant, dynamic and alive ! My He1000se use the same Noir Hybrid HPC cable and my LCD4 use the cheaper Claire Hybrid HPC cable. :wink:

So Mat, what and where is this big announcement coming soon?

Gone are the past years of 30% off on everything at FAW on Black Friday. Not that I don't understand Matt completely.

There is my setup. Got the Claire hybrid for my clears. It does what it promises. Extremely lightweight, clear from skin effect and ringing, dynamic and in the same time sweet :)
Happy with the product. Only problem i had was that the first time the cable that arrived had an issue and one channel wasnt playing. I informed FAW and they asked me to send it back and sent me a new one (the one in the pict). I only wish they used faster courriers.

For US people that's ordered recently, what were you quoted for shipping? When I ordered for a Hybrid HPC for the BF deal, the shipping was a whopping $39 euro. I looked at my past orders and I only paid about 8 euro before. Has the shipping cost jumped that up that much in the past year or is something wrong?
