To buy a new cable, could anyone suggest a cheaper one with good ohm ratings. 

 

How about the Choseal cable, link below:

If You know how to solder, then best bet would be making one yourself by your needs and liking (length, jacks, color).

Thanks for providing these links but unfortunately I don't have soldering skills.

Just get a good $30 soldering gun and some thin basic 60/40 solder. You should pick it up pretty quick, it's not hard.

 

Heat solder, put hot solder on metal wires, metal wires stick together... that's about it. Unless you want to start repairing circuits boards there's very little extra you need to know really.

 

I like soldering quite a bit and find it pretty relaxing. And of course it's hugely useful for fixing basic stuff.

Same here :)

 

Btw, I got bored and added stock cable measurement pictures also to "Fidelio X1 stock & upgrade cable measurements by ownerspost:

Coil,

 

I made an upgrade cable using UPOCC wire and the impedance of my cable is .4Ohms. That's a ton less and it sounds better than the stock cable. I get a .4 measurement on the ground-ground, 31Ohms on left, 32Ohms on right. The right channel fluctuates between 31 and 32Ohms,

 

I do get more bass control though. Everything else is about the same for the headphone. 

 

EDIT: Fixed a typo.
