If anyone want to buy the direct purchase for any of the cables, don't, let me do the math for you effect audio, brand new horus is 1799 + 888 for the upgrade to leo 2 equal 2687, so why would some pay 2888 for the same cable, same as the other 2:ksc75smile:, so if anyone want the 8 wires horus and leo 2, buy yourself a brand new horus send it in and pay 888 for the upgrade, save yourself over 200 instead of the direct purchase

I don't disagree, but you also have to factor in shipping both ways to/from Singapore plus the build and transit time. Depending on where you're located that's possibly another $100 depending on the speed/insurance value you want plus at least 2 weeks for build time and shipping. ~4-5 weeks in my experience using standard shipping each way from the US. For some people it might be worth it to pay a little more to get it much sooner and not have to deal with the hassle of international shipping. I'd imagine that applies to people willing to spend over $2,500 for a cable!

What exactly is the Bespoke service? Is it a literal combination of the cables? Like a hybrid half Cleo half Leo for example?

Looks like it! More info from the Effect Audio site:

HORUS + LEONIDAS II 8W: This configuration inherits Horus’s exquisite tuning and Leonidas II’s meticulous mid high to alleviate a wider soundstage. The ultra-depth in lows provides strong and fulfilling punch whereas the treble is buttery smooth producing pronounced, alluring vocals. The clarity in separation are truly emphasised with this fusion. It brings you to a whole new level of detailed sonic nuance in enormous soundstage.

HORUS + CLEOPATRA 8W: This cable configuration generates a more precise, richer and layered soundstage. The combination of Horus and Cleopatra increases the separation of sounds with an impactful low punch and sparkly highs. By upgrading to 8 wires, it is capable to amplify the cable’s treble balance with no part of tonal spectrum emphasised over each other.

LEONIDAS II + CLEOPATRA 8W: This cable configuration incorporates the essence of Leonidas II and Cleopatra’s astounding sound projection. They collaborate naturally with each other, expressing the stable mid and high, producing a smooth, fine and vibrant sound experience. If you like textured, spacious and strong airy sound, this bespoke is definitely a yes for you.

@Paul Zhang If the y-splits are either Leonidas II or Cleopatra, how will people be able to differentiate the Horus x Leonidas II 8 wire, for example, from the Leonidas II 8 wire? It could almost do with embossed lettering or something (HL, HC or LC depending on the hybrid) on the y-splits to differentiate them from the regular 8 wire upgrades.

As far as I am concern, I will not invest a custom upgrade cable if total cost is more then 50% of my CIEM/IEM cost. To me, not worth it might as well look for a better CIEM/IEM. Not Cost Economical

Nice thoughts bro! Base on your calculations, The direct purchase indeed is more expensive than an individual upgrade. Depending if you already have an existing cable to upgrade, the direct purchase can shorten the lead time by a dozen. Naturally, you can opt for, ordering the Leonidas II, endure the lead time of 2- 3 weeks, and send it back to bespoke upgrade for another 2 -3 weeks. That will be cheaper but time consuming:dizzy_face::dizzy_face: hope this explain. Cheers!

@HippyChick You can tell the distinct difference between the colour of the "Horus" and "Leonidas II" cables as one is gold (Horus) and the other silver (Leo II). Differentiating the "Cleopatra" and "Leonidas II" bespoke will be alittle challenging, but because of the palladium plating of the Leonidas II, The Leo II will look a tad shinier than Cleo:sunglasses:

This sounds pretty lit haha

What would you say the difference is between the Cleo/Leo and the Leo Octa? An EA Octa cable has been on my mind for some time now
