Hello All, I have a quick question. What brand of cables fits the V x Vs? I have Effect Audio Maestro cable? And for some reason, the pins are loose.

Greetings
Can someone please distinguish whether these are MMXC or RCX connectors. I have them in my M5 standard.

What you have above is mmcx. Rcx is square to prevent rotation. This is how rcx looks

Thank you very much.
And one more question? Could the original Scorpions 3.5 cable that was in the box be professionally converted to a 4.4 connector and would the cable become balanced? Or buy a new one. I tried to put a silver Fiio BC4,4D, but the connectors do not hold and fall out.
Thank you very much.

Absolutely, you can re-terminate it with a balanced plug. Any local reputable cable maker can do it for you. Since you are in Eastern EU, maybe contact Forza Audio, from what I heard they are well known cable maker from Poland and @Matez is on head-fi.

And in general, Scorpion cables are of good quality? Would you recommend remodeling or commissioning a new one? If new, from whom best and how to specify the requirement for locking the cable in the headphones so that it does not rotate and swing freely? (Silver Fiio LC-4,4D.)
Thank you very much for the recommendation. Anyway, I need a balanced 4.4 cable

Figured I would ask here since it's pretty specific...

I'm looking for one of the Frontier series IEMs and would like to trade an MMR Thummim LE (added BA driver, extremely limited, with a more neutral sound than the launch version).

If you happen to have a Frontier series and would like to pass it on, do let me know!

Yes! Forza AudioWorks do a great job and Matt is always wanting to help.

Honestly if you have a entry level cable, just buy a better cable... sometime the re-termination fee is not worth for entry level cable... and I think all MMCX does swing freely due to its design? Cable you have to test it yourself since taste really varies across different people..

I have KR5, not certain I’m interested in the Thummim.
But provide some details please.
Condition, cable, original packaging, etc. etc.
