@mochill-Are you considering getting it without the Uber?


Stupid question, but is there another cable that could give a significant boost like the Uber, but one that would be better suited for people on the go?

I'm not buying it but getting it as a gift...this will be my first iem in the $1k+ range...if a cable exist that's cheaper and better, I won't know😅

You lucky dog.  I'd love to get the ref 1 with uber as a gift.  Sadly, I'd have to buy it if I want it and right now I'm not sure if it's worth 3k.  Anyone in vegas that's buying the ref 1 with uber?  I'll let you drive either one of my 911 at spring mountain for ten laps for a 30 minute demo.

There are a few Head-Fiers who bought the new flagship Whiplash gold-plated silver cable as a substitute for the uBer cable instead. I think @AnakChan has previously auditioned both on the 1plus2 thread and tried to do a comparison between them and he said something about it being close but not yet on par with uBer. The Whiplash cable is reported to be much more flexible and portable for use on-the-go. You can ask around for those who own the Whiplash cable on its sonic performance on the 1plus2 thread.

Thanks, will do. I'm waiting on a TWAU V3 myself for my Heir 8.a, so I'm not definitely open to another cable from Craig. Hell, I'd even grab the Uber, but it just doesn't go well with my needs.

I have the whiplash twau reference, but am considering getting a crystal cable reference diamond iem cable, which I believe costs even more than the uber cable.

Wow... I take it your a believer in cables improving sound?

It looks pretty stiff for an IEM cable though. Maybe it is fine for interconnects but not sure if it is flexible enough for portable use.

Appreciate, it's very early days - but for external use how's wind noise and isolation. And do the connectors stay put? Don't want shells bouncing along the street / train platform. Thanks.

Not official products but this seller in Shanghai could turn Crystal Cable interconnects into IEM cables

 

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=19266571067

 

2,800 RMB for Piccolo
3,100 RMB for Micro
3,800 RMB for Standard
6,000 RMB for Reference
30,000 RMB for Dreamline

 


 

So far Siltech should have the best portability IMHO, and the more expensive ones from Crystal Cable could be pretty thick.

 

Is that the discontinued dreamline or the new dreamline plus?

I wonder which would be better, a duchess crown iem cable or a reference diamond iem cable?

From pictures, it would appear that the reference diamond & duchess crown cable would be about on par for flexibility.

I think you have to check with Gavin on delivery timing.

 

Here's his name on Headfi...

Ah, my mistake. That's what I get for reading head-fi at 3 AM my time. I appreciate the comparison regardless, even if you were referring to the 1plus2. I've PM'ed Gavin. He's currently traveling in Tokyo but said he'll get back to me with details whenever he gets home. Sent me a PM back pretty quickly, too.

please share your impressions.

When will these be released?

I'm thinking maybe, like I thought about the Roxies since they are universal, buy them, if I don't like make a quick sale and get the K10s.
