Additionally, the LL-4.4A headphone connectors are dual 3.5mm TRS, making it compatible with many headphones as many advanced high-quality headphones have adopted the connector.

A 13$ cable, I'm more than impressed.

Ordered 2 cables. Short review will be posted after I receive and listen to them in a few weeks.
I want a shorter one!

Jk. 1.5m is pretty perfect for me.

In China, this cable comes bundled with the JT1 over-ear headphones, which are priced at 399 RMB. If purchased separately, the cable costs 70 RMB. This shows the severe overpricing of mid-to-high-end audiophile cables. Although Fiio also sells single-crystal copper and silver balanced cables with interchangeable plugs for 599 and even 1299 RMB respectively, I'm very pleased to see Fiio generously providing this quality-assured oxygen-free copper balanced cable at an entry-level price.

BUT, what I really hope for is that Fiio could release a single-crystal copper balanced cable with an XLR-4 to Dual 3.5mm AUX connector, priced slightly lower than 599 RMB, and a single-crystal silver balanced cable with an XLR-4 to Dual 3.5mm AUX connector, priced slightly lower than 1299 RMB, as well as similar cables with XLR-4 to dual mini-XLR connectors. These are what mid-to-high-end audiophiles need, not interchangeable plugs that only add unnecessary costs.

I have privately expressed this need to Fiio's management multiple times, but they have not taken my suggestions into account. If overseas audiophiles are also interested in the products I have proposed, I really hope your voices can make Fiio see this demand and produce the products accordingly. Thank u

I love bang for the buck. But talking of state of the art.... Hifiman Shangri-La is a good headphone. But personally, Susvara is better. For the price. The Shangri-La did not impress. Anyways, I ordered the Fiio Cable 😁

A 13$ cable, I'm more than impressed.
Absolutely agree. I don't see the need in spending hundreds or thousands on a cable. Yes, a cable may make a minimal difference in sound. But extremely minimal. A cable that's affordable, durable, comfortable and gets the job done. And, if it can be a little flashy and nice under $100 or even less than $50 is an amazing cable. Having owned cables from Effect Audio, Noble, Hakugei and many more. They're nice yes. But I don't hear why they cost so much.

I think especially for headphones in the lower price brackets this is important.

Imagine having a Sundara, and then you need another cable because yours is broken or you need another connector.
Even from more affordable third Party manufacturers like Forza AudioWorks, you'd be looking at 100 bucks. Which is significant for a headphone like Sundara.

That's why I'm happy to see affordable cables from manufacturers with trustworthy Reputation

That last sentence.

"That's why I'm happy too see affordable cables from manufacturers with trustworthy reputation"

Nailed it! 😁👍.

I'll be using this cable for my Ananda Nano and maybe I'll grab another for my Focals. It's cheap, seems reliable. Easy purchase

Agree with all the above, and from my PoV soldering 4.4mm connectors is such a PITA, that if the 3.5mm connectors on this cable come off cleanly, I will buy this instead of making my own balanced cables with Mogami mini quad.

So much advertising points for the copper of the wire. What about the core of the 3.5mm plugs and the solder?

Are the 3.5mm plugs brass-mix cores or pure-copper cores?

If not, please invest into the plugs and solder for newer products.
