Cold and cables for customs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Now that winter is onset, those of us living in or near the north is about to brace this year's expected abnormally cold weather. I currently use Westone cables, which I really like but I was also wondering if there were any really good budget aftermarket cables that could survive in semi-cold temperatures (0c to -20c)?

 

I am considering TF10/UE, or Westone sockets, and I'd like to use a socket that the highest selection in terms of colors and brands.

Do you think your stock cable can't handle the cold while an aftermarket cable can?

My stock westone cables have already handled last year's -20c days. But I was just wondering if there were any good alternatives.

Cold won't damage the copper conductor.

 

The insulation is a different question for which I can't even guess at an answer.
