Twau is a great cable but it does boost the bass. I don't assume that's something you'd want if you are looking at a silver cable especially twag n silver widow

True, I guess now I'll just go for the silver widow

Between UPOCC and UPOFC, which one is superior? How many 'N' are they?
 
UPOFC = Ultra Pure Oxgen Free Copper
UPOCC = Ultra Pure ? ? ?
Does anyone know the full name of this abbrevation?

SilverFi is a relatively unknown brand for cables, but I can honestly say that they provide a very special sound like no other. As far as I know, they are the only company in the world that makes their own wires from the ground up - as in from raw material. Truth be told, the cotton shielding and special connectors that are required due to the shielding don't make them the most practical for daily use, but again, they're really something else to hear for the cable enthusiast.
 
They just announced a Black Friday sale for up to 50% on their facebook, I don't know to which models this applies.

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a new cable as my current one has developed a fault. I really want something lightweight as it will be used on the go. I would also like one that doesn't have a big plug (I'm not sure if that is the right word in English, the part that goes into the headphone jack). My earphones have a bright sound with enhanced treble and bass and intimate vocals, so preferably something which doesn't affect the sound signature. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

PlusSound Audio Xseries and there choose probably some silver conductor. I have one and it is great light cable ideal on the go.

Thanks but I looked at the pictures on their website and the plug is large. I really want a cable with a small and thin plug.


There is several choices for each model of many possible terminations. Or you can have a look on Linum BaX. Is light, tiny, with small terminations on both sides, but will drive you crazy with its tangling.

We offer various 3.5mm plugs. Our thinnest one is Oyaide. You can view all examples of our cables in our social sites (link in our signature).

i need a nice cable for my EE athena , whiplash hybrid is good but not the best synergy (and it has amazing synergy with my NT-6 , dream combo there)

Get a Mojo instead man. Amazing with EE IEMs.

But as far as cables go, the best one I tried with Athena was the prototype Norne Silvergarde, which I sold to Kerouac.
