Regarding the sound, I felt that it was a fun sound full of musicality that was both powerful and elegant, and that the bass was excellent in both texture and volume. I think the treble is well extended for a copper wire. This cable is recommended for those who want to enjoy listening rather than analytically faithful listening.
It's all about synergy when it comes to cable and this cable sits well with most of iem tested. With jewel I found the cable to be bass light and a bit thin on the highs initially but after 100+ of run times, the cable came to right to sense.
This is a cable violently reacts to burn in so should not be judged until it is burned enough. Very liquidity cable with transparent imaging with romantic delicacy. Bass's never bloated. Sparkly on top but doesn't get fatiguing. I was torn between otl and orpheus (amazing resolution and sound stage) but I had to choose otl for its ergonomic. Orpheus can get somewhat dark but I still like everything about the orpheus except the size and weight as a portable person.

For context, I also own a First Times and First Times Shielding. The Ode to Laura has exceptional technicalities (soundstage, detail, layering) -- perhaps better than the First Times non-shielded, in that regard (maybe not quite at the level of the First Times shielded? But not far off). But what really sets it apart is the texture and tuning.
This isn't a neutral cable. It does color the sound, but in a very pleasing way. It makes the bass very articulate and impactful (even better than the First Time Shielding). It makes the mids warmer, with a more analog feel. Slightly recessed, but not excessively so. It's got really great air on the top end, in a manner that makes the sound more open and alive, but without causing any harshness or excessive treble energy. It does all of this in a manner that's very coherent. I agree with everything in Tokparkolo's review on Head-Fi (which is a more extensive and articulate review than I'm capable of).
Overall, it adds warmth and musicality. It might not be ideal for a reference-tuned IEM like the Ragnar; it works, and works well, but overall, in that scenario, I'd prefer something that leans a little more neutral. I'd probably also lean more towards the First Times cables for genres that require more neutrality, regardless of IEM. But with a bassier IEM like the Odyssey, and for genres that benefit from the warmth (pop, EDM, hip-hop, trance, etc.) it really is something special and would be my top choice.
