This is a case you would have to email Chris_Himself about pricing. I know their have always been a delay of when the prices change and when the website is updated. It's not necessarily the cheapest, but it's a good product and competitively priced with its competition for what you're getting, that's for sure.
I recommend BTG-Audio and Chris_Himself cables when asked about these things in your price range. The fact is they are both good companies to get cables from. I wouldn't even dare recommend Toxic Cables to you as you have no options but the Scorpion (I think) as a selection for the cheapest cable.

All BTG Audio cables support recessed sockets. It's standard. Just don't buy FitEar cables unless you have a FitEar product, They use a proprietary pin type and they won't fit into any other IEM's. FitEar cables from BTG Audio are $10 more though, so it's easy to realize that you might be buying the wrong one when you make your order. They are also clearly labelled.

The fact is their are a lot of options, one just needs to be willing to spend the money and do the research. I did my research and that's how my list came about in the first place over a year ago. I think it's worth noting that in the low-end to high-end, their are plenty of options and a decent range of quality. If you were for example, looking for a high-end cable, their are some nice companies that sponsor this forum that make some excellent products.
