Look what arrived earlier today.
 
I've got to say this 8 wire Black Widows, from the first hours, is very impressive sounding.

  I do have some new Virus for the LCD and HE ready, also SW24 for HD800 and BW for HE is anyone wants a cable quickly, all with 1/4" termination.

 
Darn. Would have considered a Virus for the HE to 4 pin XLR.

  Anyone got a hold of Frank? I email him a few times last month regarding my order status but no reply =[...

 
Frank is super busy at the moment trying to finish all his orders before he goes on holiday towards the end of June, Hopefully he should get back to you soon.

Hey everyone!

Sorry in advance if this had been asked before. But I'm looking for a cable that pairs well with the Hifiman HE400i. These are my first headphone purchase. (I will be getting them tomorrow) because all I've ever owned was IEMs.

I already have a Silver Poison cable from Frank so it's a no brainer to order a new cable from him (when he's back from vacation of course) for the HE400i and be terminated with a 2.5 trrs for my AK120II. Thanks!

the he400 series is one of rhe brighter phones of hifiman.. So u maybe could try the BW22..or the copper venom RC4..but seeing what u already have, u also maybe would like the virus.. Although it could get a bit over the top with treble.. I had a he400 and although i deeply hated it soundsignature (treblly and bassy) it was listenable with the bw22 4wire i once had..good paring.. Powerful sound with enough treble (if u like that) and a midrange to die for..have fun choosing.. Lolz

Thanks hifimanrookie! I did notice the HE400i were a little bright and was leaning towards a copper cable. I think I'm going to go with the BW22. Now to contact Frank and let the waiting begin.

Well, Frank has left for a while and I have been in contact with Max lately. My cable is sent but I guess it went missing on its way as I don't expect it to arrive after such a long wait. 
 
Either way, I am happy for the ones who got their stuff. :wink:
