Certain gear can have synergistic results, and the Whiplash Hybrid TWag and TWcu V3 cable has synergistic results with the Hidition NT-6 custom in-ear monitors. While pairings are not normally listed in the custom in-ear monitors chart, this pairing improves the NT-6, pushing it to a new level.
The Whiplash Hybrid V3 fits the NT-6 well, although the plug is slightly protruding and the sockets of the stock cables are slightly recessed, but I am still confident the Hybrid will hold up. Compared with the Hidition upgrade cable, the microphonics are much better and ergonomics are slightly better with the Hybrid. The Hybrid cable changes the sound in many positive ways, smoothing out and lowering the treble presence while increasing the sub-bass slightly resulting in a more natural and balanced sound to my ears. Everything is articulated better with the Hybrid and the already clean and clear presentation is cleaned up even more resulting in better resolution and detail, but with an even more musical presentation. The NT-6 pro still retains its neutral presentation and I would still call it reference with the Hybrid, but it is more enjoyable. Spatially the Hybrid doesn’t change much with most tracks, but with more spacious tracks, the Hybrid recreates a deeper soundstage. Instrument separation is better as is the recreation of a blacker background and the space between instruments. The biggest problem with the cable is that the imperfections within my tracks are more noticeable even though the Hidition upgrade cable is a bit brighter and colder sounding. The Hybrid improves the overall sound not only from an enjoyment perspective but also by improving the NT-6 as a reference monitor. This is an excellent pairing I can’t recommend enough!
