Also, I bought an Alo Audio Reference 8 iem cable. This is the most robust and the most solid built cable I can find. From high quality angled 2-pin connector, which also fit snugly and tight into NT-6 socket to the right angled plug which seems to insert securly into DX200's 2.5mm socket. When pushed all the way there is a click which tells me the connection is tight and secured. The wire splitter is also solid made of aluminum I think. Lastly the cable is soft and not prone to tangling. For an 8-conductor cable it looks thin.
The previous cable I used although have equally solid build the 2-ping connector is straight and a bit loose. I had the monitor fell off a couple of times. The straight plug seems to put stress too much on the DAP's socket when the cable gets caught into something. It's also an 8-conductor cable but noticeably thicker.
Hopefully, it helps to prolong my NT-6. When it goes out of warranty and break. It feels like it's good as gone.
I don't think that's how the connectors are supposed to be put in... for reference, this is how it's supposed to look like when attached.
Attaching the cables like that might affect the polarity or something like that. All I remember is that it changed how it sounded lol.
Anyways, please do attach them the right way and come back with your findings.
