    I have had some of the finest headphones, Stax 727 Amp and high end Lamda, Sennheiser 650, Micro Seiki electrostatics, all the way back to Koss Electrostatics and currently have Sennheiser HD700 and Etymotic ER4ER. I found about your company by chance of looking for the best cables for rebuilding and Tri=amping an Maggie 3.6R (they need it badly) when I found your site. I didn’t want to go overboard so I purchased these cables with Carbon 3.5mm straight and used regular mail waiting 3 weeks. IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT. I am absolutely flabbergasted (amazed). Playing Adele 21 I get a better sound from fundamental to the finest nuances that I can’t hear with the HD800 that I can listen to and the equal of the 700 and much more detailed than the 650. This kind of sound I don’t usually get except for electrostatics as Jazz ensembles one can hear the pages turn and conversation in the background like I can with my old Pablo recordings. By the way, the HD700 measures and sounds almost exactly like the HD800 but are more precise i.e. faster from mid lower frequencies on up (I’ll catch heck for this statement but the 700 is faster but the 650 has an even, easy listening sound). I’m telling everyone that I know that likes to listen to music and especially the late 60s early 80s vinyl! Digital still sounds like digital and is always converted to PCM by ESS and most others except PS Audio, EMM, DCS the 3 companies that are far beyond my pocket book of correct DSD 1 step digital to analog conversion done right (the schematics don’t lie and not all of DCS is truly DSD. I have some of the best early pressings of classical DG (Von Karahan, Ansermet, Osawa, Marinnera and other conductors of several classical performances that were award winners but lucky for me, no one was interested in Holst, Saint Saens, Beethoven, Smetana, Ravel, Debussy, and the like during the rock era. It’s time to heat listen for a hole night of vinyl. The best cartridges are going to make magic as they have in the past as even the Oppo 205 can’t match or come close to my Ruby Z. My next purchase will be Master Line for the HD700s. The only thing that is better is being there or perhaps when or if I get done with my 3rd triamped system that I’m working on (first two were custom Accuton/Focal with Threshold crossovers…). I would like to add that I have used Nordost Red Dawn and Heimdal and these surpass them. I have Heimdal 2 on my Phono and Red Dawn for all other connections all were burned in. The difference is considerable as these IEM have never sounded close to the other fill sized headphones with the fundamentals, harmonics, separation of instruments and the activity of the stage during live performances of Jazz and Classical. These differences are even noticable on the variety of Big Band, R&B Blues, to such performers as Carol King, Jackson Brown, Pete Seger, Show Tunes of old as these are classics in their own right of Rogers and Hart, Gershwin Bros… and even older classic rock without the 8-128 tracks that are used now. My only regret is that I did not get the copper connections.

    Hi The cable actually arrived in the UK on Tuesday but UPS did not deliver until yesterday. I am sure you remember that I had some doubts about the cable upgrade, was it going to be worth the high cost and would there be a significant improvement. My response to those doubts is THANK YOU – the cable is awesome! I used the existing beyerdynamic 3 m extension with the Xelento basic remote cable, it sounded good, then I used just the Xelento basic remote without the extension, a slight improvement in clarity and then finally the 4.2 m awg25 Lavricables MMCX extension – night and day!! Significant difference in clarity, bass, mids and highs all in perfect balance whether it was a ballad , or rock, even the soundstage was bigger, more defined, pure and in my opinion just as the artist/producer wanted it to sound in HR. I will email beyerdynamic and recommend that they endorse Lavricables as a superior upgrade for the serious audiophile, or just anybody who is serious about there music. R.

    If you are using stock cables with the Westone UM 50 Pro, change, these cables will make a difference you will not believe. The entire frequency quality changes. The main difference I found was the instrument layering. The tightness in the bass and extended high end. The music opens up. The soundstage is amazing. I have 150 hours and the pan still moves a bit with my AK70, maybe another 100 hours will suffice. It will take some break-in. And the Westone BA take some break-in also. I am a happy music camper for sure. Well worth the cost of admission. The 1980 music was like listening for the first time. Thanks Lavricables

    I am most assuredly so very pleased with the cables. I can suggest no improvements and have no suggestions since I find the cables to be most superior to any I have purchased including far superior to custom headphone cables and factory headphone cables for my Audeze LCD i4 headset. There is marked improvement in sound quality and clarity with a warmer tubey sound. I use my Lavricables lcdi4 with my Hugo2 chord sac amp as well as with my McIntosh mha50 dac amp as well as with my Woo audio portable tube amp. I use streaming Tidal high def source on my iPhone XS. With all of my dac amps the Lavricables of my Lcd i4 headset gives superior sound compared to the factory cable as well as compared to another custom cable. I also own a set of Audeze mx4 headsets I use with custom Kimber cables and look forward to replacing my Kimber cables with Lavricables cables. The Lavricables pure silver design along with the technical expertise of handmade construction yields an unheard of subjective sound reproduction. The attention to detail is amazing. You will not be disappointed with your Lavricables headphone cables. Price is not an issue for me and in my opinion no matter what I paid for headphone cables in the past my Lavricables are indeed the best.

    I received my cable today. I just wanted to write and tell you that I am blown away. I’ve had a few different aftermarket cables and have made a few of my own as well. The value, build quality, and resolution of your cables is stunning and I haven’t even burnt them in yet. Thanks again, I’ll definitely be ordering more in the future. R.

    Just received my cables and I wanted to let you know that they are wonderful so far and I would expect even better sound after breaking them in. Just what I was looking for with tighter bass and pristine high frequencies without glare. Great product great work!
