With headphones cables, the compromise is typically between resolution and warmth – and some level of liquidity. Many cables go a little heavier in one direction over the other. And many of those who attempted a middle ground end up skewing the sound either towards harsh or sterile.
The Danacable Lazuli Nirvana skips all those notions and just makes the headphone cable invisible. It is no longer a bottleneck. In fact, a thought that crossed my mind a few times was, “This is perhaps how this headphone sounds in its purest form.”
The Lazuli Nirvana provides a deep-rooted sense of musical immersion and envelopment. From a technical view, these qualities reminded me of an upgrade in amplification – more depth, better separation, more grip, and appreciable harmonic structure.
“How many listening trials did it take to get this cable so well-balanced?” I wondered.
Until you’ve listened to the Lazuli Nirvana, you won’t realize just how much dynamics, harmonic cues, micro/macro-details, and texture is missing from your music. It brings you closer to the music without sounding clinical or hyped.
This is the most headphone listening I’ve done in recent memory. I had such a great time going through old playlists for hours – and discovering new music. The Danacable Lazuli Nirvana not only allowed me to realize the capabilities of my headphones – but my digital sources as well.
While not the most expensive headphone cable, the Danacable Lazuli Nirvana is up there. This particular review sample has a 4-pin XLR to 1/4″ adapter, which is an additional $1,000 – so effectively a $4,500 headphone cable (!).
So, who in their right minds would pay for these?
In life, we’re all chasing experiences – and at times willing to pay large sums of money for it. This headphone cable is for someone who finds deep joy in the auditory experience. An audiophile who wants to unlock and appreciate the full potential of their headphones.
Also, unlike many headphone cable manufacturers, Danacable offers a 30-day trial. If the cables aren’t a good fit for you, you’ll get your money back. No questions asked. If that isn’t a show of confidence, I don’t know what is.
