The sound is more pleasant. This means they are aware of the problems Nordost cables in sound can create. The new cables are more easy to use.

Hi, I use the Frey 2 speaker Cables, their fast and neutral in character being even handed top to bottom. I belive the series 2 Frey are the equal at least to Tyr 1 which I have also heard . I'm told that Frey 2 is not as lean as Frey 1 although I havn't heard them. Frey 2 now uses the same gauge wire as Tyr 1 and 2 more per run as well so you can do the comparison . I hope this helps although nothing is better than a demo in your own system of course.
Frey 2 is not REMOTELY as lightweight-sounding as Frey 1. I've had both (still have the Frey 2 (interconnect, not speaker cable) and it is easily as solid as Tyr. Instuments are grounded, not ghostly. I imagine this is a function of Nordost filling in the noticeable upper bass/lower midrange suckout of the original Norse cables. They've certainly done a fantastic job of it, let me tell you.
