Wanted to address one more thing based on a question after my EA Chiron review. As I mentioned before, the cable in my review was prototype sample. It had production quality wires and plug/connectors/y-split, but the earhook heatshrink part was temporary and not transparent, with some whitish stuff underneath. I just had a chance to send it back to EA for an update, and now it looks all clear and transparent, the way how it should in production cable. The only reason I'm bringing this up because I have featured the original Chiron cable in a few of my other reviews and was asked by some people about the earhook part.

Guys, advise the cable with the maximum wide musical scene.
Now I choose with
EFFECT AUDIO - LIONHEART
Astell & Kern Crystal Cable Next
Cеma Pipa

I am looking for a cable to final audio A8000
Hi Alex,

You may think about getting a silver cable, like Cleopatra or Cleopatra Octa to match with your A8000.

Hi all,

EA and I have decided to part ways, so my time here has come to an end. It has been a pleasure to dive back into this hobby and be part of this special community again.

I've always been passionate about cables, so it has been great to work for a company that makes such quality products. I wish EA and the team all the best with their upcoming launch and future endeavours of course.

Thanks again, and bye for now 👋🏽

Going by a distant memory, SE846 had a stiff SPC cable. Thus, you could replace it with EA Cadmus which has a similar wire composition. Just keep in mind, by default it comes with ConX 2pin so you will need to buy additional mmcx tip, $10 per pair. Also, 4.4mm is default, so specify which plug you need when ordering.

I bought a few cables from XINHS and there a reputable company that offers good quality cables at there price point. After testing the Cadmus I felt the sound quality was a improvement in my system compared the XINHS graphene cable. The build quality is better with the Cadmus and it also offers the ConX connection.

I have to agree. Both Ares S and Cadmus offer superior clarity, texture and 3D imaging than my XINHS'.

Tks for the tips @twister6 @Ufanco the 846 stock cables are indeed stiff af lol. Cadmus is the spc option? sounds like a good idea, will it affect the 846's mids?
@saldsald haha did ea cables replace your XINHS? i decided to not go for XINHS unless im getting another cheaper spare iem, don't think it will do the 846 justice lol

Well, some (most😂) of them but some are still worth keeping for the characters. I mainly use my Yin-yoo cables now, until the EA signature series cable arrive at my door. :sunglasses:
