    I needed XLR to 2.5mm so I ended up ordering from Periapt Cable, it was $65.00 (which sucks BTW) but I'm expecting the cable will be well made and trouble free. I also am hoping the P20 & SU-8 combo along with this cable take the HE400i to its potential.
    At least relative to the associated equipment. Never tried balanced before so hoping it's worth the price of admission.
    I will say I upgraded the stock PS to the P20 from 12V 1.67A to a 12V 5A I think it seems to sound a bit better!

    couldn't find mmcx/2pins to 2.5mm adapters at aliexpress yet. hope ae shops start stocking them soon.
    you can buy them at taobao, using an agent (PM me if you want more details).

    the adapters are not cheap, purchasing them for a $10 cable and $20 phones is not worth it.
    about the cable of your link, it's good enough for $5-20 phones, but for HE400i.. forget it. you can find that kind of cables in my list of cables below $40.
    planar phones are current hungry; it's better to use low output impedance source and cable, because you get higher damping factor.
    another thing is the stage and blacker background you get with some cables.
    surf through my list of cables (resistance and comments) and you'll get a wider perspective of cables being sold at china. this will help you to decide.

    Has anyone here paired these with a ibasso dx150?

    Chief, it's two distinct points.
