    I'm wireless most of the time but what I love about the EA Lyric HG is when used live it can bang around on the floor or stage with no noise at all. It is very stiff though. A great compromise is the EA Melody. (The blue one).

    Have not tried the Klotz so I can only give you the EA report:aok

    I live with the added stiffness because IME the tonal compromise of the Melody is not worth its added flexibility...you give up too much of the Lyric's goodness to gain the better handling...

    I also prefer the regular Lyrics to the Lyrics Hgs...better bass response and sweeter highs but you do get some handling noise...

    EA Lyric sound quality + full cable flexibility = Vovox :)

    I do not agree. Vovox makes some great cables but they do not sound the same as an HG Lyric. Two great flavors- but not the same sound quality.

    My quote most have gotten lost in translation... 'same sound quality' does not necessarily mean same tone :)

    I'm using a 12' and a 15' Lava ELC, sounds very good, but I have no comparative experience with EA, Klotz, or Vovox.

    Very different animals to me. I like the Lyric HG.........
    Bass response is a bit lower but the overall tone is wide spectrum-ed with a smoother feel. VERY stiff cable, but could survive a nuke as well.

    I had both. As well as a vovox

    I play a lot of rythm, and I actually prefer the Lagrange overall: it's natural sounding, is easy to handle, and has the punch and the nice bass response typical of the Klotz.

    I prefer the EA for leads, and the Vovox is sweet but actually lacks a little punch for my taste.

    All 3 are great honestly. It's worth having them to compare because in the end it's really a matter of taste. They do sound clearly different one to another.

    Which Vovox did you have, the Link or the Sonorus?

    Mark tells me the Sonorus has more punch than the Link.

    Back to the OP.

    I've tested the LG with the LHG side by side. Seriously no comparison. The notes are more defined and the bottom end not muddy. The mids are not as harsh on the LHG vs the LG. But I have tested the Klotz Titanium series vs the LHG. Very close, but the clarity of the LHG still beats it. The highs are not as harsh but is a big improvement over the LG model cables.

    The Monster and Canare Cables I used in the test come no where close to the clarity of the KT. Monsters have a hyped high and bit of a scoop on the low mids. The Canares were well balanced but didn't have the brilliance of the KT or LHG.

    And for the record, it was tested with the same guitar PRS Cu22 with PRS#10 pickups) into Logic Studio and played back to ABC them. All cables were 20fters. I don't have that session anymore so I can't post the clips.

    But for the price point, I'd say the KT has my vote if you're not gonna cough up that much dough for the LHGs.

    Hope that helps.

    We all have different ears: to mine (and a few users I talked to) the Klotz Titanium is *vastly* inferior to the Klotz Lagrange.

    For the record, the Vovox I had was a Protect A. Sweet cable.

    Both the Link and Sonorus are Protect A.

    The Link has a grey stripe and the Sonorus had a brownish stripe.
    Which is your's?
