Gorgeous design! Looks like it comes with a special black edition Pentaconn slider!
Can’t wait to audit.

Man, that would be crazy on specs but may sound absolutely atrocious lol. Let’s see.




Nice photos! Our photography set isn’t ready yet due to logistics issue. I’ll share here when i get it done :)

And yesss, these very special Pentaconn collab sliders comes with the Aeneids
The slider actually kinda works on the Aeneid even though it's snap-on. I thought it would look way more out of place.. My sister has received mine actually, she will send me some photos tonight

To all future owners of the Aeneid, as Eric said, the Pentaconn slider comes detached from the cable by default, and you’ll have to attach it yourself (if you wish to) by undoing a tiny screw on the back of the slider.

Please keep in mind that the screw isn’t captive, so it can fall out when you open the slider to put the cables in. I say this because I almost suffered quite the mishap last night, when the screw nearly launched itself from my bed. :D Thankfully, I was able to catch it and apply the slider safely. So, please be cautious when you’re attaching the slider onto your cable, lest you make Eric pay DHL to ship you a new 1mm screw.

PSA over. Aeneid pics and impressions coming soon. :wink:

@Eric Chong Will you be making Aeneid interconnect cables?

I think that's by design as a security feature to prevent any Aeneid owners from being prematurely seperated from their art piece :smirk:

While we are waiting for the impressions of Aeneid, let’s don’t forget the old king Iliad! Let me share a good pairing of it. :smile:

Pretty excited to have purchased this today... I can't wait to finally hear the mighty Iliad

So sorry folks, a noob question, what's the differences between 2 pin & 2 pin flat connector? For VE iems which connector should I go for? Thanks all!!!

Some iems, like customs or in this photo, the Noble Khan have a recessed 2 pin connector

For these you need the now standard 2 pin connector

For other types of shells like the VE Elysium, the pin holes are not in a recessed socket so a 2pin flat connector works fine. The stock cable from my Elysium is the flat version

Basically, the plug type for customs will work in all cases where the flat will not work with a recessed 2 pin socket. (this was my stock Elysium cable I sent in for replacement due to the short tine)

The only benefits I can see of the flat plug in an appropriate shell is that it reduces the length of the plug and the contact of the barrel should provide a little extra support against lateral forces.

Exactly that. I’d always recommend the longer 2-pin plug. Better to have and not need, than to need and not have. :)
