Yeah, some stock cables are really bad and really hamper the sound. The stock cable on the SE-Master1 isn’t that bad, but I‘m wondering if anyone is using an aftermarket cable. I normally pair my headphones with silver cables because I like details and clarity. Based on what I’m hearing, I’m think that a good cooper cable might be a better choice. Interested in knowing what cable everyone is using.
I think back, just after they came out in 2014/2015, there were a couple custom cable shops that made SEM1 ones, but I haven't seen any in at least the past 3 years. They're so limited as well that I guess the sunset of owners that would also chase an aftermarket cable are small too.

I'm looking forward to trying out a few when I get my back in the coming months.

I'm also looking forward to that other driver replacement feedback vs. original. I'm praying there's no difference, I'm too OCD for that :frowning2:

Hi Benny the SEM1 cable hasn’t arrived yet the one that came with my repaired headphones was damage. They had to order from Japan, so I’m still waiting too. I’ll update the tread once I’ve given them some headtime.
