    Hello there,

    I got in my hands yesterday a pair of Fiio F9 Pro, totally happy about them.
    Id like to know if you have a suggestion for an aftermarket balanced 2.5mm cable or an extension and possible longer without breaking the bank, between 2 and 3 meters.

    I found these but still are 1.2mt, eitherway I would not know if they are anygood.

    I think for MMXC you are best to go Chinese/aliexpress. Just search for MMCX and you find 8-core silver/gold/whatever plated designs, often with eidolic plugs even. Some are $20 some are $80+. Go with one that looks good :)

    They look awesome hahaha, I was doubting about the quality and about the fact they would actually make the headphone drop because of the weight, but guess I can put them around the ear as stock cables?

    It should be fine, they might look better on picture than in actuality though but for $20 range you can't really go wrong, right!

    I didn't do anything :wink:

    I just know the Asian market is crazy about earbuds and iems, if you want a nice mmcx cable that's where you find many options :)

    This is what I do also. However, all AliExpress cables I've tried (dozen or so, up to 40USD) break down in no less than 6 months of daily use.

    So be prepared to find one that you like and then buy a stock of them.

    Many sellers sell one cable for a while, fold up and try another.

    The best cables I found are nowhere to be found anymore on AliExpress (the ones that lasted the longest).
