Yes, i own SE5 for a long time actually and love them specially for long listening sessions. I know they can be even more refined though;] Since i recently bought AK240 my goal for setup was to add good balanced cable as a cherry on the top. But is it worth it? How much that good balanced cable would improve sound?

 

@Mimouille   What is the better way to do that not without sticking portable amp to it? (i want to be able to fit it in the pocket)  Vinnie's mod fixes lower part of the spectrum from what i've read.

Thanks lee. I know they won't be NT6 or other brighter IEM's but buying new cable i would like to go this way.

If you have the AK240 you are fine. Maybe get a balanced silver cable but the difference will be minimal if any IMO. So you should value ergonomics in the cable.

I do have one concern that does silicon ear piece last for a long time?
