WTF? You can get multiple headphones for the price of this cable. Or a single pair of pretty good phones. You see where I'm going with this? Would you buy a set of car tires for $20,000 when a decent small car might be $16,000? Because that's exactly what you're doing when buying this sort of overpriced POS crap.
I think I saw someone mention Moon Audio. Same logic applies to them.
Do you own this headphone? Seems like you aren't the target audience mate
I mentioned Moon Audio because it, too, is expensive. I'm with you: I would personally buy a less expensive cable.
You should look up how much Ferrari or Bugatti tires cost sometime.
This cable is not the quality it should be for the price, and certainly the caliber of the HD800s. 5N silver plated copper of this gage is a 20 dollar cable on aliexpress. The only thing expensive about this is the Neutrik XLR- everything else is the lowest of low end generic. And yes- cable materials do affect sound. For them to say they don't subscribe to that and yet charge $200 on sale is basically saying they're using the cheapest materials and ripping you off. Bear in mind, I purchase custom cables all the time in the $60-120 range all with Neutrik XLR connectors and much better cable and hardwear than this, ans I can tell the difference. I even tried a Graphene infused cable and thought it killed the weight of the music on my Pioneer SE-Monitor5's- I stopped using it and ordered a different kind of cable with primarily copper and found it was returned to normal. Silver too will affect sound tone and quality, as well as higher grade copper, plating material, etc. None of this means you need to pay snake oil prices. This cable is a joke because you pay those prices without even believing in snake oil benefits.
