Glad to see you're moving away from that Jewelry wire (I kid of course). Can't wait to get a cable made with some of the shipment and compare between the old and the new

But yes it's very much here and the pre-tubed wire means it's quicker to build cables than ever. (seriously like 60% faster now)

It was never jewelry wire, it was actually some random yarn I found in my attic..

What thickness is this new wire. I read the last solid silver was 28.
post #455 of 640

last solid silver was 26 AWG i believe. Pretty sure this new stuff is the same thickness

I'm really considering getting the Arete in black/white. I really love the look of it. Anyone recently purchase one or have some input for me?

Also, does anyone know what brand the double flange tips he is using are? I've been looking for some new tips to use while im at the gym

I'm looking for an alternative to CH cables as I liked how it sounded on my tf10 reshell but not the stiffness...

Is there any alternative to it? Closest sounding to CH cables but with flexibility and good built??
post #460 of 640

CH just got in new wire. More flexible and stranded. That may be an option.

It all arrived on Monday. It's on our facebook page if you wanna have a look.

You seem to link to Toxic Cables every opportunity you get.

Something seems a bit fishy.

 

post #465 of 640

Help me here, what you guy call the stiffer end of the cable section where it meet the socket ?

 

I just bought the Fiio UETfi10 replacement cable and it's not stiff enough to bend around my ear, the cable is so flexible it doesn't shape. :(
