Manufacturer Product Description (Click to show)

93PC; Premium Copper. A brand new creation by 93EAST. Limited quantities. Demo available locally.

Stage93s very own house brand of copper cables – created after intensive research, testing and prototyping. We aim to bring copper cables to a whole new level, and we believe to have done so. Everything about this cable is custom.

The 93PC is a cable that we have been working on simultaneously in development with the 93SPEC. We took longer to develop this cable due to the complexity of the cable, from it’s very core to the outer shell. The cable is a whopping 105 strands – perhaps the highest in the market and is in a 4-way braid, which we believe can compete against solid core cables, while being flexible and feel extremely sturdy.  It’s also a OCC, cryo treated copper cable that will fit both flushed and recessed ports using our Overfreeze Technology.

Not only that, we’ve also managed to develop a method of encasing the wire, (w/o sound sacrifices) effectively preventing it from oxidation. This means your cable will stay in its nice pinkish tone up to the near future. We bring to the market a whole new way of protecting your copper cable. The cable is enamel coated to protect from oxidation, unlike other copper cables. This makes for an aesthetic cable that’s both visually and sonically appealing, with it looking the same into the foreseeable future.

This cable can be used with: the JH Audio JH16 & JH13 in ear monitors, Heir Audio customs, Unique Melody Miracles, 1964 Ears, Ultimate Ears UE18 Pro and UE11 Pro and Westone Elite Series ES3X, ES5 just to name a few. It also fits removable-cable earphones like the UM3X RC & Earsonics SM3. (removable cable) Coming soon would be Livewires, Shure, etc.

This is perhaps the best copper cable in the market so far. Stage93 presents a premium, durable and excellent sounding cable at an affordable price, the 93PC.

Manufacturer Product Description: (Click to show)

The Symbiote SE Hybrid is our newest and most compact IEM cable.  It features an all-new, custom litz wire and performance that will shock and surprise you, in an ultra-flexible, ultra-light package that demands to be seen. 

 

The essence of the Symbiote SE Hybrid is our newest litz wire, the Peptide Hybrid.  It is a more compact, 26awg wire that we designed from the ground up. The strand size is the smallest featured in IEM cables for maximum flexibility and surface area, with one of the highest strand counts in a 26awg wire.  The polyethylene insulation has been redesigned for maximum optical clarity, silky smooth feel, and flexibility without microphonics.  Each strand is made of ultrapure OCC copper coated in a secondary layer of pure silver.  The silver-copper strand is then enameled with an invisible, razor-thin layer of enamel, preserving the integrity and beauty of the wire's surface forever.  Because this is a type 2 litz, the strands are arranged in bundles with a specific configuration designed to expose each strand equally to the center of the wire and the outside of the wire.  This keeps the wire's impedance more consistent, and the individually insulated strands function as one massive surface for the signal to travel upon.  Litz design as a whole makes skin effect and AC losses non-issues.  The wire is cryogenically treated by the manufacturer for enhanced strength and electrical performance.

 

We have extensively tested this wire with a variety of equipment from home gear to portable.  Peptide Hybrid offers an incredibly intense listening experience without fatigue.  Treble detail and bass impact are heightened with this design and soundstage gains in all dimensions.  Its physical attributes are optimized for portable and IEM cables, but it is a remarkable pairing with full-size headphones such as the LCD3 and HD800.  It brings the best of both worlds together - copper and silver - emphasizing the strengths of each of these metals which complement each other's flaws and form a more perfect whole. 

 

We offer the choice between a square braid and a round braid.  A square braid occupies the smallest volume, while a round braid has a very pleasing aesthetic.

Manufacturer Product Description: (Click to show)

DHC's highest performing IEM cable has arrived.  The first (but certainly not the last) litz IEM cable in the audio world, the Symbiote SE represents the ultimate companion for any in-ear monitor and our flagship. 

 

Features:

DHC "Peptide" cryo type 2 OCC copper litz - one of our finest creations and our favorite stranded wire.  The base metal is ultrapure OCC copper as with our other wires, but with the performance and durability advantages of litz.  DHC's Litz wire is a construct of extremely fine strands - 105 to be exact - in a specific winding configuration.  Each strand is individually insulated for additional surface area, reduced AC losses, and decreased skin effect and other deleterious electrical phenomena.  Litz protects the metal with an invisible, ultra thin coat of enamel that makes oxidation impossible, so the strands will stay beautiful with a perfect surface into the foreseeable future.   This makes the Symbiote SE a worthy investment in durability and sound quality.  "Peptide" is insulated with inert, ultra clear polyethylene which keeps the construct in its intended configuration - only polymer based litz constructs will perform consistently.  Deep cryogenic treatment squeezes every ounce of performance out of the wire. 

 

Not to be confused with a "litz" braiding pattern - which is simply slang for a round 4 strand braid - litz in the context of the Symbiote SE refers to a cable with individually enameled strand laid in a specific pattern to improve its electrical qualities.

Design:

Our JH/UE/Westone design has been produced and tested, and are a great success.  We are having them overmolded for permanent, high-quality earcup connectors similar to those of the stock cable, molded directly to the wires.  No memory wire required - we simply use a little bit of heat to permanently shape the cables so that they will stay wrapped around your ear.  Shure cables can be had in any length while the overmolded JH/UE/Westone cables can be had in a 4' length with an optional, matching 3' extension cable. The cables are made of our sleek and flexible "Nucleotide" cryo-treated OCC copper wire with much of the same customizability of our other popular headphone cables. 

 

We have awesome Shure SE535 and SE435 IEM cables as well as Livewires (now known as Fidelity Customs) cables.  These are made with high-quality beryllium copper & teflon gold plated connectors which we attach by hand and reinforce thoroughly for maximum durability.  As these cables are assembled entirely by us we can customize anything from length to sleeving, while the overmolded UE/JH/Westone cables can only customize the termination.

 

Specs:

  • Made of our uber-comfortable cryo-treated 24awg "Nucleotide" stranded OCC copper wire for super-clear, super-neutral sound.   Ultrapure copper + cryo treatment + continuous casting of the wire --> ultimate realism.
  • Beautiful round braiding pattern
  • Custom lengths now available for the new custom metal connector UE/JH/Westone cables.  Overmolded plugs are being phased out as they are less durable.  Also, any length for Shure SE535 or Livewires (email us for lengths beyond 6').  Also available as a 1' cable with a 3' extension, or a 4' cable with a package deal on a 3' extension. 
  • Soft, compact, and comfortable - you won't notice it's on
  • Tiny, clear silicone band as a cinch/choker (optional)
  • No bulky memory wire required - the cables are heat-shaped to permanently lock them in a shape that fits comfortably around your ears
  • Includes choice of various terminations - DHC black aluminum 1/4"or 1/8" plugs, Neutrik XLR, balanced portable connectors for RSA and iBasso. 
  • Shure SE535 and Livewires cables feature durable teflon & beryllium copper industrial-grade connectors, installed by us
  • JH, UE, and Westone IEM cables are made with a custom metal-body epoxy injected plug that will last a very long time...
  • Package deals on perfectly matching interconnect and other cables for use with your IEMs

Examples of the IEM's this cable can be used with are: the JH Audio Custom molded JH16 & JH13 in ear monitors, LiveWires Custom molded in ear monitors, Unique Melody Miracles, 1964 Ears, Ultimate Ears UE18 Pro and UE11 Pro and Westone Elite Series ES3X just to name a few. Coming Soon Shure SE535 and SE425.

The Silver Dragon IEM is a coaxial design using a 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 26AWG center conductor for the positive leg. The center conductor uses the same Kevlar reinforcing as the other Dragon cables. The center conductor is wrapped concentrically by a 99.99998% UP-OCC silver plated single crystallized UP-OCC pure copper stranded 26AWG gauge conductor with 7N purity 99.99998%. Now that is a mouth full:)

The left and right signal cables run parallel to each other resulting in a very low inductance. Both signal jackets are polyethylene and the cable is extremely flexible yet very resilient and resistant to flex failure.

A variety of connection options are available for your downstream connection such as the mini plug, RCA, XLR and many others.

We custom build these in house to your connection specification. The cable can be used in either a single ended or balanced design. The wire is soldered to a connector using high quality Cardas silver solder.

Manufacturer Product Description: (Click to show)

Like the Moon Audio Silver Dragon V1 IEM cable, the new version for the JH Audio JH-3A Amp is a coaxial design using a 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 26AWG center conductor for the positive leg.

With this custom set up, there are 4 cables instead of 2.  The JH-3A breaks the signal path into a separate 3 way crossover pattern.  Each frequency range has it's own internal amplifier in the JH3A; therefore, 6 channels of conductors are required for this cable.

The center conductor uses the same Kevlar reinforcing as the other Moon Audio Dragon cables. The center conductor is wrapped concentrically by a 99.99998% UP-OCC silver plated single crystallized UP-OCC pure copper stranded 26AWG gauge conductor with 7N purity 99.99998%.  Now that is a mouth full:)

The 3 left and 3 right signal cables run parallel to each other resulting in a very low inductance. Both signal jackets are polyethylene and the cable is extremely flexible yet very resilient and resistant to flex failure.

This cable will only come in a 48" length and with the stock 8 pin Mini XLR required of the JH-3A amplifier.

The Lune utilizes specially made silver wires with clear Teflon sleeving as high performance conductors, braided to reduce low range and interference noises. It minimizes transmission phase shifts and distortions while providing immense clarification over the sound realm with better depth, width, image focus and finer low range resolution. The new Lune MKII is lighter, softer than the Shure stock cable, terminated with high quality Viablue audio connectors. It is insulated with thermo and chemical resistant Nylon material. This is a very sharp looking cable.

 Upper part of the cable (above Y-splitter and around ear) is protected by black silicone fiberglass sleeving, which is very soft and durable. It will provide much less microphonics effects than stock and more comfortable for long period wearing.

The custom TWag v2 GOLD IEM replacement cable is design to be a cable that is FULLY customizable which includes length and connectors. It contains the memory wire. This product does not have the over mold (OM) process. The sound is very similar to the TWag v2 OM cable, however this cable contains 99% silver and 1% GOLD!!!

 

There are other cables out there with an alloy that has 1% gold added, BUT no cable out there has 1% gold added to the AMAZING TWag v2 specifications.

 

The TWag v2 wire has a very high strand count making this one of the most flexible cables out there. The results is a rich detailed sound with a very wide soundstage. Highs are liquid. mids are well focused with texture and lows are expanded. When we add 1% gold to this mix, the sound is transformed into the same sound with a touch of attitude. Bass becomes even more aggressive. The added warmth takes on a new sound that is not only detail with added warmth, but is more transparent!!!

The latest design from Whiplash Audio. Twag v3 OCC silver now adds 55% more metal making it a true 24.5awg wire. 2 years in the making with the goal to improve the total audio experience. Building off the popular TWag v2, we tested many prototypes until the results can truly be said that we achieved a new version; version 3. There is no wire that is like this. Taking all of the successes of v2, we created even more transparency, depth from front to back. Even MORE DETAILED!!! This also includes allowing the listener to be connected to its music. To create an emotion that no other wire can produce. Highs sing and just keep traveling forever. Mids are focused, rich and steal from the highs and lows. BASS in silver, what? YES. Deep controlled and well uniformed bass. When all of this is acting in concert, this allows the notes to take on texture. Now its easy to define what you are listening to.

Crystal uses a unique silver and gold combination which helps deliver better sound and signals.

 

The very pure silver Crystal uses has a crystal structure. That means by solidification of the metal, you get round-shaped crystal boundaries touching each other, buy having "bad places" where they don't touch.

 

These bad gaps are filled/injected with gold, which is the only metal that can be used for this.

 

It makes the way of the electric signal smooth and in time again.

Woah this is a really good thread! Thanks for the effort in putting all these together. Sure many will benefit from this :)

Awesome list. It's an honor to be included up there with the big boys.

Great list, thanks for taking the time to put everything together and including my cables.

All cables come as standard with 3.5mm Oyaide jacks (other terminations available).

Thanks for letting us all know. Also, thanks for being a SPONSOR, not just a MOT. This doesn't change the rules for those that are MOT's.

 

I'm excited to hear about how the cables perform. I was interesting in Piccolino wire myself a while back but I need recessed socket support. Guess I might have another option now. Congrats on the 1 Year Anniversary

great list kenman!

 

is there a reason why MOT cant post here if they're not advertising?

Sponsors pay good money to be able to advertise their business here. MOT's don't pay a cent. It's unfortunate, but it's the truth and it actually works out for the best. Without such rules this place wouldn't be nearly as well kept up with. So in keeping with it being fair for those that pay, the people that are not sponsors I labelled as Members of Trade so people know their bias and then that's about all they can say about their goods. Before Toxic Cables was a sponsor he couldn't even post pictures of his cables in his picture of his personal portable rig.

I remember that, i had to remove all the cables from my portable rig, before i could post a picture of it. biggrin.gif

 

I thought i would post regarding the Piccolino as you did not have the details for that cable yet, and was not listed.

 

Plus, it's a great deal for Piccolino. biggrin.gif

Something I'd like to know about each of the cables is whether they have memory wire or not or whether it's an option to have or not have it. I don't know if that would be possible to track down for the list though?

That actually was supposed to be in there. I forgot about that entirely when I was making it. It's a bit hard to do, but not impossible. Most cables come as they are, no options for memory wire or no memory wire. Some like Toxic Cables and Chris_Himself cables are custom made per order, so you can probably ask about that option. I'll add it to the list of things to add. Hopefully it doesnt take too long

Whats the best cable for the Aurisonics ASG 1.2 at a reasonably good price?

Thats a very subjective thing. Main thing is you need something with recessed socket support

All of my CIEM cables, other then Piccolino, come with overmoulded connector, so the connectors are pre made in batches, other cables i do make per order, but unfortunately i do not offer memory wire option on any of my cables.

 

My CIEM cables, come pre shaped to go around the ear (can request to not have this done) without the need for memory wire, this can also be done to other IEM cables on request.

Interesting, I actually really dislike memory wires so I'll have to look further into yours. I've had my eye out for something done like the Westone 4 cable which ergonomically did a very good job for me but of course cost is a big factor as well.
