as a cheaper alternative, maybe Headphonelounge or Forza AudioWorks. are they comparable? probably not.
the best bang for your buck cable is probably the one you make yourself.
I'd be curious to hear why you think they're not comparable. Which model of cables did you try to compare? I think each of the makers have different lines of products (each with different construction properties) - knowing which ones you've tried will help to understand if we're comparing apples to apples.
@opteamist, in my 2 yen worth, I think sadly there's no quick answer for this and encourage you to search and read up as much as you can. The main players are as already mentioned, Headphone Lounge, ForzaWorks, Toxic Cables, Double Helix Cables, HPL, Whiplash Audio, Moon Audio, ALO, and probably more that I've forgotten.
It'll probably help if you set a budget too and what your expectations are (or mention what other cable experiences you've had so at least so that there's some kind of baseline).
