I think there's much discussion here and if you do a search within the thread, you will find the answer you seek. But, no, there's no compiled list.

Anyway, for the HE500, I would recommend the BW. Though I use it myself with the Copper Venom as well. For the HE1000, I like it very much with the SW22. :)

I agree with kiats...i had the he500 and used both copper venom and bw both 8wire versions..it gives more punch then the 4wire versions

Absolutely, Hifimanrookie! More body and note weight. I've even heard these 2 cables in 8 wire iteration. :)

How are you doing, Paulo?

Oh dear! Yes, You should rest and take care of yourself.

I am good. I have decided to quit my previous job that had me on trips around the region twice a month. Not good for my well-being. So, while the headhunters work to peddle me to the next employer, I am chilling with music.

Did I tell you that Frank made me a pair of Silver Venom balanced ICs with solid silver connectors? Now my tube amp for Stax has pristine pure signal from my DAC. Probably the last piece of the puzzle on the components of the desktop rig.

Now working on making my AK DAPs part of the home setup using AK Connect and my NAS digital music collection. So I can listen to my IEMs with no limitation of the onboard memory at home. :)

Towards this quest, Frank is pondering making the best 2.5mm balanced to 3.5mm SE adapter he can for me. So I have options with the same cable for my IEMs. :yum:

Hi all, i'm seeking for my first toxic cable for Noble K10 custom. I want to improve soundstage, air, clarity, focus on treble and mids, reducing a bit bass. My target was Sliver widow 22, is it suitable ?
 
Moreover, I have already owned a TWau, can anyone compare SW 22 to TWau 4 core? Are they similar as they are both gold plated silver?
 
It would be appreciated fir any advices or thoughts, thanks!

Yes, I think the SW22 will tighten up the bass and not have so much bass bleed. It will be a lot more dynamic and detailed. At the same time, you will have excellent layering if the soundstage. Instrument separation will also improve and be less smeared.

SW22 is not gold plated silver. It's litz silver with some gold.

Hope this helps. Hifimanrookie is another person who has good experiences with the SW22. Actually most of the SW22 owners will happily vouch for it. :)

Thanks kiats! May I know the different in sounding for Silver gold cable and gold plated silver cable? As my gold plated silver Twau seems to focus on mid and improve details.

Well, Gold plated tends to be more midcentric. The details will be from the silver cable. :)
