Sorry for the confusion, it is this one: Westone W4R, UM3, ES3, ES5 Earphone Upgrade Cable / Headphone Replacement Cord (55 inches) by Geekria

My stock westone 4R cable is now broken, so I'm looking for a replacement unit.

I'm looking to replace the wire on my Sennheiser IE80 but I'm not looking to spend over 50 dollars and get burned on a crappy quality wire. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have never heard of the brand, but if you're just looking for a replacement and not an upgrade I can't imagine you can go wrong with it.

 

If you're interested in an upgrade cable I have a beautiful 8-strand copper cable for sale but it's slightly more expensive ;)

Okay guys, I think you should all really like my addition to the top of the first post.

 

Basically, I made the information available as a spreadsheet and let you guys maintain it as I do not have the time. I hope to find that people use it and this information in making cable buying decisions

Anyone have any recommendations for a cable replacement for the Noble 3? When I look at some aftermarket cables I usually don't see the Noble series listed so i don't know the compatibility...

post #176 of 191
Noble uses standard 2-pin, it's the most common connector for cables

hmm ok thanks. Any recommendations you guys have for these? Or should the stock replacement cable from Noble be sufficient?

Well I don't know how the Noble sounds, what kind of music you listen to etc. Do you prefer clarity or warmth, what kind of bass response. Cable matching depends on personal preferences, just like iems. Every cable has its own signature, and quality goes up with your budget. But overall, I'd recommend just checking the classifieds for a good cable at half price or so. The better silver cables generally start around $300 new, coppers maybe around $150 or so.

Thanks for the info. My nobles have a pretty "U" shaped signature and the highs are a bit harsh for me tbh... I would like to have the lows emphasized a bit more as well. I will check the market to see what I can find though.

So I had a pair of Westone 3's reshelled and upgraded to 6-drivers per ear by Unique Melody a couple of years ago now, but the cable has started to die so I'm looking into replacing and upgrading the current cable. I use my IEM's at work, at the gym, on planes etc so I'm looking for a robust and tangle free cable that will last ages and doesn't have too bulky a connection (ideally right angled plug), but I'd like to improve upon the stock cable. The socket on my IEM's is the standard UM socket, which I think is recessed? What would you guys recommend for something like this? I love the look of silver/clear cables (my IEM's are clear with a titanium faceplate) but had the original clear cable I got with the IEM's turn green within a few weeks, so exchanged it for a black cable. Not looking to spend crazy amounts, but happy to pay a premium for a discernible improvement in both build and sound quality.
