    Okay, so I pretty much just limited my time to the prima done 8-wire their Flagship or TOTL offering and compared it to my Mezzo audio cable. Fortunately for me I was able to plug both my Maestro cable and Beats audio cable into the SE and 2.5mm socket of my Headphone conditioner so at least I only had to unplug the earpieces. However, because I felt little to no difference in audio dynamics,resolution,sound stage,extension (insert random audio feel good word) I opted to then have one ear piece from each cable to see if I could take away a literal difference of sound. Switching earpieces occasionally between the two and despite having to adjust volume a little I felt there was little to no difference or rather I couldn't find/tell personally sound wise between the two. I personally have no idea of the cable make up of the maestro only that it is apparently from a tone arm cable instead of the typical source/configured offerings, and that its termination is in SE as opposed to the termination of the Prima donna 2.5mm. The one reason I opted to go with just testing the Prima Donna was mostly due to it being a 8-wire and secondly because it was their top of the line offering and I didn't want to mess up my impressions clouding them up with the other cables. Thinking about this I'm curious if my headphone conditioner with its auto impedance matching would lend to this being the case, however, without any way to test this all I can do is speculate. I'm somewhat let down that the cable between the conditioner and earpieces was so insignificant to my past wire upgrades between my source and conditioner as I was honestly looking to be blown away in some small measure in regards to one of the aspects listed previously.

    Some pluses for the Beats line are their robustness and quality of parts which certainly lend to its aesthetics but the weight could be perceived as a issue for some I could see in regards to the prima donna 8-wire specifically
