What is the deal with all these cables?

Now, there may not be scientific proof whether cables improve the sound of headphones or not but cables do make a difference. There's a 10,000+ members strong forum that would be happy to debate. When describing how headphones sound, most audiophiles describe them in quantifiable terms, be it bright treble or a deep bass sound. These results are clearly audible. But, cables? You have to hear it, to feel it.

To each their own - There's a cable for everyone

"Copper cables after cryo are unbeatable!"
“My experience with silver litz cables is that the low end can be a bit light making them sound brighter”
“I speak out of personal experience, a copper and silver hybrid can give the right blend of warmth and balance…”
We've heard these words many times and you have too. Maybe a hotly debated contest on the forum or main-table discussion at one of our Headphone Connect meetups: The forum has never shied away from a good debate.
Our cables are tailor-made to suit different sound profiles and different headphones. With a plethora of options to choose from and multiple termination combinations, there's a cable for everyone.

Yes, Headphone Zone does cables now

Just like headphones, there is no 'one-size-fits-all' when it comes to audio cables. From the cable materials to the number of cores or to the termination connector material. You know we take our audio seriously. We mean, SERIOUSLY. We obsess over every headphone so you can get the perfect one. Now, with cables too.

Very Pricey. But does the job

I have Zen Dac + Sundara and got this cable to improve the power output. Cable did help get balanced output from Zen Dac. Sound quality did not improve a lot but I could notice tiny improvement with details (not because of cable and mainly because Zen Dac balanced amplification). In summary, If you are happy with power you are getting, I would say not go for this cable. I went for this because I wanted more headroom for volume. Also, I could plug-in another headphone to Zen DAC now.
Price of this cable is very costly, considering this is made in India. Similar cables in US are ~$50. This is more that twice than other countries market. I guess Headphone zone is keeping higher profit margins here. Purchased it anyway since I did not have any other option. My advice is the save the money for better headphone (or Dac if you already have Ananda or Arya) because this cable adds diminishing return.

Hi Antony, We have read your review and we really appreciate your time to share your inputs in such detail about the product. We're sure this will help in guiding others while making a purchase.

Too expensive.

I think the fair price should be half of what it costs it's just too expensive. Yes it does improve the quality of the sound, since it is a balanced cable it obviously adds more dynamics and you get better seperation but it also adds touch of clarity and just improves overall sound by a bit. The build quality of the cable is what I'm concerned about it honestly feels cheap doesn't feel premium doesn't feel like it'll last long time. It's very stiff, thin and not at all supple, I tried warming it up by hairdryer to see if it loosens a bit but it doesn't. It has absolutely terrible microphonics, everytime cable rubs and has contact with it induces microphonic noises. Overall I'd give it 3/5 stars, I don't have any issues with the sound infact it improves the quality of the sound but it's cheaply built and I don't think it'll even last two years so for that it should be priced at half of what it currently costs.

Good quality cable but very short in length

I badly wanted a balanced cable for my Hifiman Sundara and this seems to be the only available aftermarket cable. Its quality cannot be denied. Good stress relief at ends and braided, but its seriously overpriced. Periapt cables cost 40-50$ with a 15$ courier from USA still falls short of this price point. But, didn't want to import as I wasn't sure about the customs. I think ₹6000 is the right price but, ₹9000 is just too much

I like this cable

Good dynamics with expansive yet cohesive soundstage. Better than the stock cable of Sundara in every respect. Although the stock cable of Ananda is better in terms of tonal refinement.

Thank you for your honest review & ratings, Anurag Saha!
