i am not sure. i tried fiio interconnects, i will buy one as soon as it will be alavaible again.
the SQ was the same in my experience, but i do not trust the original one to take a beating.
Also, i like the straight one much better. the L shaped one is very akward for keeping in pocket. I have this thing, even within a case, the straight one could fit better than the L shaped one.
I will see after i buy something to hold my stack in. i might use the advice of buying a photo camera carry thing, then i will see if i would like the L shaped fiio interconnect better.
In my experience, as i have normal headphone cables, and not the headphones i want, i do not think that an interconnect is the right place to invest money. when testing i could not hear a difference between interconnects, but, again, for me hugo and x5+e12a sounded very close, at least in frequency response, so i might not be that sensitive to these type of details. e12a sounded like a big improvement from x5 though.
