As far as silver cables goes it's rather cheap yes. It also varies on wire purity, for example the silver wire comes in different purity levels such as 5N, 6N, 7N,  it can be solid core or soft wire, the gauging is different, this all changes the cost. Though I do believe that pure silver cable I listed will perform well you just don't know until you try with your earphone and your gear. I have a $400 Tralucent pure silver cable here for my original 1Plus2 I absolutely love the look of, but it doesn't do what I want for the sound. Instead of lifting the tonality a touch brighter this cable (in my combination) makes the mids to smooth. The soundstage is wonderful and the headstage expands but I miss crisp edge I get from a $60 silver plated cable. So it goes to show that price isn't everything in cables and it seems there's trade off's. I'd rather go for a smaller stage because I like that crisp edge in detail more.

Tralucent cable. (as you can see it's gorgeous) 

 



I would of course try the most expensive (if I didn't need to pay) but really anything over $150 is taking a gamble IMO. Unless I demo it first.



If anyone wants a good performing cable at a great price, I have never found better than this 6N silver plated cable, which I have bought several times on eBay for a variety of my IEM. it cost only $50 and performs very well. Everyone I recommend this to also is pleased once they receive it.

It is a little low on the description side of things. Heck even the cheap cables on ebay talk about what the cable does for the sound.

You could try messaging him and asking what the purity is, you can see it's soft wire, (not solid core)

If I was just a TF10 owner (and no other IEM) I would go ahead and try one for us, but it's not worth it for me when I have 1Plus2 and RDB Mini. Maybe someone will take the leap of faith for us. Maybe their name will be Watagump.

Mmh, that fabulous blue sheathing.........

I did think about asking that and whether it has memory wire, the pictures with them bent makes me think it does under the gorgeous BLUE.

Sent 2 messages about the memory wire and purity, I am here for the people.

ebay seller responded to my question.

 

 

This cable has a ear guide installed. Does not have the metal wire inside. It's much more comfortable.

Purity is greater than 3 nines.

I have no idea what he means by greater than 3 nines.

I can tell you the ear guides will be a silicon  tubing similar to this cable below, they work well. if you lightly heat them then wear them they will  mould exactly to your ear.

Well my cable guy says 4n is standard so he feels the ebay guys is being honest.

Maybe greater than 3 nines is greater than 99.9%

I must ask someone with more cable knowledge this question

See if you can find out mate what he means, as I've not heard the term 'nines' used before, only 5N,6N,7N etc.

Same here, was just thinking maybe the N was short for Nines, could be way off though.

post #8775 of 9565

I was on the right track, from my cable guy.

 

 

99.98% purity the other thing about affinity cables is teflon insulation is highly microphonic and adding it inside of techflex (blue sleeve) massively adds even more microphonics

it has an odd strand count.
not OCC either i think
