Unboxing: Double Helix Cables Symbiote SP V3 OCC Silver Type 4 Litz IEM Cable 8-braid

Peter Bradstock of Double Helix Cables doesn't bullshit. He just makes awesome cables from the most conductive materials available. He uses OCC and Type 4 Litz because these improve sound not because they look fancy. Peter is super refreshing to talk to. He doesn't sell snake-oil, he just sells well-made (in the USA) cables that... Continue Reading →

Welcoming Otic Nerve

Otic nerve stumbled into the world of HeadFi, quite reluctantly, from two channel setups. He'll be writing a series of articles under the EARWAG category, a sly portmanteau of earwig (something that gets stuck in your head), and chinwag (a casual talk).
