Never experiences those but Alo Audio's Silver litz is pretty lightweight.
Is that the one that comes with CA iems? I tried it when i had Atlas. I dont think you can get it with 2 pin option unfortunately. And i need 2pin to 4.4mm
Thanks for suggestion!

Oh hi there Skullar, didn’t notice I replied to you haha.

Ah didn’t realise you can’t get 2-pin from them.

@Skullar you can get 2-pin on certain cables, for example the SXC 8 and Reference 8 do offer 2-pin options. Not sure about their entire cable catalog, though

Hi everyone.

Looking for a light, portable cable. I was looking at pure silver to brighten my iems up a bit as i already have hybrid from Forza Audio.
So i have narrowed down to;
Norde Audio - Therium 2
Toxic Cables - Hydra 18
But then i also came across
Linum - SuperBax Balanced. Which if what reviews say is true has sonic properties i am after.

Anyone has any experience/ recomendations with either of those?

Thanks a bunch
Plussound has different options for light weight.
2 wires
4 wires
6 wires
And 8 wires!

You can choose as you wish and all type of iem connectors and source connectors.

As for example my plussound gold plated silver you saw up few posts is 4 wires and its one of the lightest and easiest one I ever had...
You can go 2 wires if you want! They got like 6 or 8 options of cable material to chose from and its all litz as I recall

Ok that x series 2 wire silver + gold seems like sexy option and it is around $300 so that is what i am roughly willing to pay.

Thanks for making it even more difficult to make a decision haha.

The only cable I can recommend in pure silver and light weight is The Dream Duet from Crystal Cable.
Dream Duet is the best sounding silver cable I heard to date.

Yeh the size and thickness is nice. But my god it looks horrible lol.
While i would love to hear it out my coming iems will cost less than that cable

Still thanks for introducing me to another cable manufacturer. Seems like serious business

the thing i dont like plussound is the connector at the earphone side, the printed logo no matter what color, gold, silver, red,....will just fade after some months use, other than that, i am quite happy with that.
with that said, some other brands may have the similar issue.

My best sounding headphone/IEM cables are Norne Audio. Trevor can make you anything you want and his silver cables are magical. The Therium 2 is a good choice for what you want.

Not pushing Norne cables, but here are mine. The left one is a Silvergarde SX and the one on the right is a cheaper silver Litz one. There may be another on the way.

It's the plastic sheathing that has been stained, not the conductors or connectors.

Deoxit is for metal to metal connections, not for rubbing out stains on plastic. If he does this, he'll assuredly ruin his cable.
I was replying to someone totally different buddy. Read the post.

Yea lemme just put Deoxit on plastic sheathing... I real smart
