PRICE DROP! Selling my Effect Audio Mars cable in 2pin to 2.5mm Balanced for Astell & Kern DAPS. Reason for sale is that I'm looking at another cable. Cable was babied and used for roughly 50hrs, with ~35 spent at home burning in. The flagship/TotL cable from Effect Audio, the Mars sports excellent extension in both bass and treble and seductively sweet mids. Very nice for vocals! Cable was just rebraided, with the plastic Y-split and old plug replaced for Effect's...
My Zeros have just hit the ~120 hour mark and they're steadily improving. Initially the midrange was slightly recessed, but now seems to be coming out more, with the bass becoming more controlled and not bleeding into the mids as much. For now, I've only compared them to the only thing in my inventory that is somewhat near its price range: the Apple Earpods.

AK240SS -> HUM Pristine Reference w/ Effect Audio Mars in 2.5mm TRRS

Great job so far, TS! Have you considered looking at the Mars and Leonidas cables from Effect Audio?
How's the quality of the construction and leather used in the EASECASE? I'm looking to upgrade the case I got with my 240SS and was wondering if by some weird chance (at the price) the EASECASE is of a similar or better quality?

   Currently using a HUM Pristine, which is an aggressive but neutral CIEM. I'm a fan of a clear and dynamic sound signature, yet one that doesn't have an overabundance of body. I also like my upper mids... Thanks for the replies guys! Any more information from anyone would be greatly appreciated.
Has anyone extensively tested which firmware sounds best for the AK240? Not sure whether I should stay at 1.18 or update it.   Cheers, Ed
 Definitely works with the HD USB port. In fact, I only use the HD USB port :PBest of luck getting the cable!
