    HifiHear, Nicehck, KBEar

    the Nicehck C16-3 is recommended pretty positively in various places

    also take a look at the following thread:

    https://www.head-fi.org/threads/low-end-cheap-generic-otherwise-bang-for-buck-cable-thread.891911/

    asked there about copper cables just recently around 20-25 USD

    and got another nice Nicehck one recommended:

    another one:

    Yes, all of those are solid cable cboices (HifiHear, Nicehck, KBEar, Nicehck C16-x).

    I would add FD Bro and Kinboofi to that list as well.

    That's an excellent cable, and one of @hakuzen's top choices for budget cables. The only downside is it's a little stiff and plasticy compared to the super soft/flexible 16 core cables like HifiHear, Nicehck, KBEar, Nicehck C16-x

    I use it on my Audiosense T800, because my favorite IEM deserves the best cable possible:

    Yeah, it's definitely the next tier up as other cables!

    The cable looks solid, but now I have more cables than my IEM, lol.

    I honestly don't know, haven't bought from there myself for years. I used to use a forwarding agent when shopping from there but that increased the price by a good deal. In my case the company I work for has an office in Shanghai (I'm actually there right now) so I asked a colleague there to purchase them for me on Taobao and then another colleague brought them back to Norway for me.

    another downside when looking through several stores that offer that cable is that there are both issues with the MMCX and (QDC type-C?) 2-pin connectors, from the feedback, it appears

    that was quite the turn off and made me decide against it, for now
     
  15. superuser1
    I read the same but i have to say personally I haven't faced any problems with the mmcx connectors till now. fingers crossed
