I have the SE425s and am looking for an upgrade cable, but not for the regular reasons.
The main reason I need one is the standard cable is simply too big, and won't really fit in any iPhone cases.
I'm hoping to spend around $30
I've found two cables, neither of which are great, but both do the job. The UE 900 VI cable, and the fiio RC-SE1.
From what I can tell the UE cable is a bit better than the stock cable, being a bit lighter and with much better microphonics. As well, it has the whole remote thing, something that I would take advantage of.
The FIIO has better sound quality, although much worse build quality and horrible microphonics, from what I can tell.
I live in Canada, but my brother lives in the US, so whatever I get I'll get shipped to him and then he'll send it to me.
So, which one should I get? Am I missing anything? And are there other better recommendations?
I tried out the ADL iHP-35, which were great, but I don't think I can justify spending $115 on a cable.
