Default New Audeze EL-8 Cable

The new Audeze EL-8 cable arrived today. I ordered the cable from Charleston Cable Company (C3).... I ordered their basic cable, which starts at $100.

It is obvious that C3 used the Audeze original connectors. I directly compared them to my factory cable and the connector is identical. The cable itself is considerably heftier, thicker. It appears to be a very nicely made cable, very similar to the cable that came with the McIntosh headphones.

I have only listened to a few songs so far, but at first note it was obviously that this is a good cable. Even though I got a substantially longer cable it actually sounds better than the original Audeze cable. This is a huge improvement for the EL-8 headphones, and highly recommended.

C3 offer two higher level cables depending on how critical you are I suppose. The highest one makes no sense to me since it would cost almost as much as the headphones. The service from the company was outstanding. I called Chris on Sunday and he shipped the cable out Monday. It arrived from the East coast to California in three days, with their standard shipping rate!

Thank you.

I know there are a lot of EL-8 owners out there. The only real complaint I have read is that people are not happy with the cable that is include from Audeze (and I concur). I would highly encourage any EL-8 owner to look into one of these replacement cables. It moves the headphone to a whole other level!

I can second the positive opinion of this company's products and speedy delivery. On top of that, their shipping charges are low, too: $5.00 for priority mail!
