    Both the Ref 8 and the SXC 8 are very microphonic, with the SXC 8 being the worst. On the other hand, the stock cable is excellent in this regard.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond about the microphonics of the cables but I already ordered and sent them back in the time it took someone to answer about them.

    While I happen to agree with the sentiment of the other user, as I personally have never heard any real significant difference between cables/daps/etc, I would never claim that others don't, nor I would I tell anyone they are spending their own money wrong.

    But yeah, ref 8 had terrible ergonomics, was stuff and very very microphonic and I personally heard no difference between it and the included Vega cable back when I owned it.

    Let me share a really weird experience with Andro. I tried the Dita Oslo cable and it noticibly changed the sound in a bad way, making the mids sound really weird. I wonder if the cable has high impedance? Perhaps the CA Andro cables are all low impedances.

    Actually, higher impedance ahould be beneficial. I can't imagine cable impedance going higher than 4 ohms.

    Should a $500 cable make iems sound worse. Please no.

    Sometimes cables just don’t match well, I think the PW Audio Loki 8 wire is like an $800? USD cable and it was an awful pair up with my Legend X but an amazing silver cable.

    I want to give thanks and a shoutout to the folks who recommended the Symbio W tips for the Andromeda Gold. I just got my delivery today and spent a couple hours with them. They are amazing. Thanks again. I still find it interesting how much the tips make a difference on Campfire Audio IEMs.

    anyone compared Symbio W with Spinfit CP500? the CP500 in M fits my ear perfectly, leave a perfect seal and I can wear the Andro for hours without issue.

    I tried Spiral Dot MS / M and neither fits my ears, there are tons of leakage and they fall off very quickly no matter how I adjust them.

    I wonder if I should go through trying the Symbio W. Is the fit similar to Spiral Dots or Spinfit?

    Not sure if there is a separate thread for Gold one, but I think I can post it here too

    The Andromeda Special Edition: Gold sure sounds good. Really enjoyable. :)

    the AG cable is what type? copper?
  14. bwardrop
    Silver plated copper cable. It’s called the Smokey Litz cable. I like it more than the previous litz cable that used to come with CA iems.

    @bwardrop is right. The Andromeda 2019 comes with it too.
