I recently purchased a used Decware CSP2+ preamp/headphone amp and also bought
some cable terminations for the headphone end on my HD700's from Norne.   While the
CSP2+ with a nice 5Y3wgt rectifier sounded really nice (better than my Crack that I had
been using with some pretty expensive tubes), when I took off the stock cable and put
one made of Canare cabling on the 700's everything clicked!
 
The Canare is a bit warmer sounding wire than the stock cables, which was (for me) just
what the Senns needed.  Some might find them now a bit laid back, but that's my preference:
Warm, liquid and sweet, vs. dead neutral and analytical.   Soundstage, layering and sense
of space are excellent.
