Never had the opportunity to but would love to try.Surely, cables can be distinguished, especially with all-BA IEMs.
The question is can you distinguish cables of the same resistance?
I'm a believer that lower resistance gives a more unadulterated sound.
That said, some people have argued with me that (particularly on higher end iems) the supplied cables were factored into the tuning of an iem and that changing to any other cable would ruin the way its meant to be experienced. What do you think?
I always volume match when doing comparisons.I would think volume matching between cables would be very important in these tests. Gotta play back at the same dB I'd you're going to say there is a difference in sound.
