Well, Frankly, if you'll be paying more than 40 bucks you might want to get a custom made one - either a mini to mini or LOD. It's just that you can get the exact connectors you want and get the length you need coz most interconnects on ebay are relatively long and you better get something small and short for the portable rig - like 3-4 cm length instead of all those 10 -20cm
Yes, but the shipping to Australia is often not worth the purchase in some cases. For example, the new Westone star tips only cost $25-00 US but shipping to Australia Cost $25 too. I"m not even sure silver cable is what I'm looking for, the last one I tried did not tickle my fancy but with totally different gear. That's why I like silver plated because it suits my taste offering a little of both worlds. I think if my rigs were going with me more often or in my pocket I would certainly go for custom because the length is made to size and some of these eBay cables can get in the way.
