What are the differences between the materials used? Sound sig?
About the price, I really dont have any idea.

copper- more of a dynamic,warmer sound
silver plated copper- dynamics of copper while giving you a little brighter mids and highs
pure silver- best option imo, more expensive too...silver gives you a brighter presentation in the mids and highs
a LOD will give you a direct line out this will provide a cleaner signal so reguardless of what materials you choose the signal will be cleaner than the headphone jack.
as far as price you can get a fiio l9 FOR 10.00 or a ALO audio SXC 195.00 OR WHIPlash for 150.00 again depending on the type of plug, and the materials used. prices are going to vary. obviously you get what you pay for so expect a higher end lod to be of better quality than a cheaper one.
