I'm not a fan of the stock cable either, but oddly enough I find the ergonomics of it much better on another pair of IEMs I have (Earsonics S-EM9) due to the angle of the socket.
My favorite cable with the Dream so far has been the Leonidas from Effect Audio (mine is sort of a one-off version), but the ergonomics of Effect Audio cables are generally very good; soft and supple and you don't really notice them. I have an Eros II coming in that I'm going to try with the Dream and can let you know on that. The Leonidas is pretty darn expensive, but then again these already come with a $500 cable. @PinkyPowers is also currently testing the Dream with a Leonidas I think, so maybe he can chime in on cables as well since he too did not fancy the stock cable.
I agree. Leo is indeed a great, great match for DITA. I like the sound, and ergonomics better than the stock cable, if indeed you can call a $500 cable "stock".
Thanks Seesax and PinkyPowers for your inputs. Leonidas seems to be one of the recommended options, will certainly give them a try soon.
Are there any other options that I should consider?
Anyone tried the Dream with cables from other manufacturers like Beat Audio, Brise, OC Studio before?
