Anyone have any reviews on the Symbiote SP Hybrid Peptide Cable?

post #392 of 610

You speak of two cables: Hybrid is silver plated copper, SP is silver

I'm very interested in the Fusion IEM cable. I just need to make a damn decision about what IEMs to buy first, though I'm leaning Shure SE846. I do want to wait until Westone has some W60's out there in the wild before deciding

Got This Cable For My Shure Se535 Get Them in tomorrow. Going to use with my RSA SR-71B

Westone and Shure use the same connector now.  Just saw that even the Westone CIEMs even use the round MMCX plug.  Hopefully every IEM starts using this plug, it's tougher and easier to insert, and you can't crack a pin off in it.

Interesting! Is this for the ES50?

For all their new c/iems apparently. No internal design differences though, so it is no different than ES5.

It is interesting that you suggested that. I heard many people complaining about MMCX connectors and everyone was looking like prefering old Westone style. I didn't use anything with MMCX connector though so I was just saying, what I read in these very forums.

its a double edge sword, i dont like the connector mmcx but all the companies switched over to it.. i guess to keep things fresh. the good about is, that ultimate ear pins were different than the westone..now you can use your cable on westone/dhure and ultimate ears so i guess thats the positive

ES50 and all other Westone use the Shure/UE900 style plug, the mmcx connector.

Ok thanks

A while ago I was inquiring in this thread as to whether I should buy the fusion or SP iem cable, I am glad I made the right choice back then

 

All in all, Peter provides one of the best customer service I have encountered so far. Timely email replies, detailed feedback and answers on my noobish questions, patient and can cater to most of your cable needs

 

As with the product itself, the build quality is the best i've seen (i've used most of the aftermarket brands), the heatshrinks/Y Splitters isnt the regular type, they look sturdier and longer lasting than most. I was also able to choose a carbon Y splitter but couldnt wait out for the samples to arrive

 

I wont comment much on the sonic performance here but will probably do it when i get my mentor and compare the differences between cables against the 1plus2

 

Hope the pics will at least show you the quality of the craftsmanship. I ordered the SP iem cable with the lower half below the split sleeved with Pete's silica sleeving, a 8 braid mini2mini cable and few spare DHC's own Elite 3.5mm plugs

 

full name of cable is quite a mouth-full : DHC Symbiote SP Pure OCC Silver Litz IEM Cable

Very nice cable

post #405 of 610

Throwing in my endorsement of Peter--the quality of his product, and the fantastic guidance on a custom adaptor.  Down the road I'll definitely order custom cables from DHC.
