The solution for this (It is a bit expensive) would be Silver Litz cables. Each strand is individually wrapped and that prevents oxidation. An example would the be Toxic Cable Silver Widows.

That, or the silver cable that Sensaphonics uses. It's different than the normal CIEM cable, both in construction and termination. Supposedly won't oxidize and so far mine has not.

Double post, dang it.

I didn't think any silver oxidises to green, I thought it oxidises to black eg tarnished silver cutlery. Green oxidisation on iem cables is probably some other metal oxidising?

Yeah I thought copper oxide is red in colour. So I went online and from what I found copper can also be affected by other stuff in the environment. Not just oxygen but also rain, sulfates, etc. Copper sulfate etc is green. So it could be still copper oxidising but also other forms of pollution in the atmosphere also contributing?

Holy ****, just got my V6 in the mail. I had completely forgot about them, what a surprise! Pics and impressions to follow.

Congrats! 

 

I ordered mine on the Jan 30th, so hopefully mine will be arriving sometime soon. Did you get an email telling you that they were being shipped? Do they even do that type of thing?

I was just calling it silver as in "the color", not the materials.

Nope, that's partly why I forgot about them, they just showed up unannounced. I have been checking the mail everyday for my Hisound Nova N3, and was not expecting a package from 1964ears instead. 

 

Gotta say though, these things are gorgeous. The build quality and packaging is phenomenal.

Finally! Congrats! Now you can tell us if the signature resonates with you.

Finally have them in my ears. First thought was "so this is how customs are supposed to fit"

 

They make me extremely bummed about the wonky fit of my 7X. Maybe I should just send the 7x to 1964 for a re-shell lol. Or maybe it was the new impressions I got, idk.

 

edit: i'm in love.

edit2: damnit i want to play dark souls but i cant stop listening. #firstworldproblems

edit3: if this is considered mid-fi...

I can not wait to get mine. Hopefully, since this is the fourth week I will be getting them in couple of days. I kind of feel like its the night before christmas everyday lol.

post #568 of 907

I'm sure you'll get them this week. I only ordered mine 3 days before you.
