Hello everyone!!


First of all, thanks for sharing all this knowledge. I’m currently at page 68 (it takes time to read everything ahah). I have several questions indeed.

On EA website, they say « For JH24 Set (With Bass Control), it is only available for 6wires or 8wires configuration. Please write in a "Bespoke" request to us. ». Does it mean we can order cables with 6 wires also? Eric told once that the 8 wires braids offer a more dynamic and fuller, lusher sound compared to 4 wires. Also, what is the additional cost of these?

I’m really new in this area so I’m still lost about making a decision between Ares II+, Eros II+, Lionheart, Thor Silver II+. All of these cables seem a good choice, but my wallet won’t allow me to buy all of these and my country don’t have a reseller where I could try them. Here is my dilemma and where I need your knowledge!

I currently owned the Dream Earz aud-5X. I really love the restitution. It’s bass heavy when coupled with my Cayin N3. I would like to add some resolution, separation and soundstage. In my mind, I want something more refined like closing my eyes and feeling like at a concert of classical music or at a metal festival. Also, bass need more control and details IMO. All of these wrapping into emotions and keeping a kind of warmth tone! What would you guyz advice?

Another dilemma for a newbie like me is about termination. Hiby R6 Pro has a 4.4mm balanced and EA has a classic 4.4mm balanced. Hiby R6 has a 2.5mm balanced and EA has a PSquared 2.5mm balanced. Is there a huge difference between both setups?

Finally, do you think EA can make a small cable (<5cm) adaptor for ease of use? Like a 4.4mm/2.5mm balanced to a 3.5mm (for mobile device). Of course, the aim is to have the same composition of the bought cable. For example, a small cable adaptor made of Lionheart component to connect with a Lionheart cable.


Thank youuuuuuuu guyz and I apologize for this long message
Replied on your email :) Hope this helps. But in case others are curious, your preference do sound like a "Lionheart" :)

Hello there,

Thank you Eric for your email and for your recommandation!

I would like to know if you, people, have picture with 2.5-3.5mm adaptor (a small straight or a right angled) plugged with EA cable and a DAP to see the size? That would be kind and helpful to see it in action.

Check this page, the 2nd review shows the adapter compared to the EA plug and a couple of different daps.
The adapter is not bigger than a right angle 3.5mm plug

Probably Trump screwing around. When you base stuff on USD backed by gold. crap gets expensive, especially gold. EA probably took making Horus at a lower profit margin for a while.

Though 1800 USD is realllllly hefty even for me.

@aaf evo I noticed that too. Very odd. I mean, the price of gold has been fluctuating since long before IEM cables and considering these cables probably have far less than a gram of gold in them (which costs $41 currently) I am not so sure this is currency-related. Although, who knows. Either way, I was kind of hoping Horus would go down in price over time so that I could own it one day :)

Thats very true, I guess they figure there was enough demand for it? Usually prices don't get raised unless they're sure they can get a bigger pie. I'll just cross my fingers and hope for a 4 wire palladium copper to come as a heritage I guess.

The cable you describe is probably exactly what I am looking for! Come on EA, get that Palladium onto the copper and let's do this :)

Having the 435 for few years and got the phantom last year. For me phantom does what i miss in my westone es5, especially the bass area (im not a bassfreak) and the smooth yet thick vocals. In fact its on another level.
It did take short awhile for me to slowly appreciate the phantom even more. But one thing that i feel is phantom is slightly more dependent on the source. With 435 i wouldnt have much issue thinking what to pair it with. But phantom you will need to find the right source for you to hit the sweet spot. And wm1a does it for me.
Oh and my phantom is more sensitive to hiss as compared to my 435. (Above is just my personal opinion, i might be wrong)

You can contact euphoria audio to test out the phantom or the ve5. And do check out the EA cables pairing with those or even with your 435 :ksc75smile:



Would you happen to know how the VE5 would compare to EE Phantom or Kumitate Corona? Looking at a new ciem later this year to complement my Fitear 435s

I decided to swap out Leo II on my Zeus about a week ago for the PS Exo Tri-Copper. I didnt last for more than 4-5 days before I swapped Leo II, its just so perfect.

If I want to splurge on a cable to be used with the Zeus and maybe the 64 Audio U18t, which one would you recommend between the Leo II and the Janus D?
