Ok, I have been reading until my eyes started bleeding and my head feels worse than the day after St. Patrick's. Last night I ordered a new HS Arrow which I am going to use with my iPhone 4. I have spent most of my time since then trying to figure out what LOD to order.
 
My main concerns are sound and fit. I read page after page filled with technical terms I really don't understand. All I have deduced is that there is a direct correlation between the number of words in the description and the price. I want to get something that adds to the sound quality and I would also like it to connect well between the two devices. Some of the cables I have looked at appear to be really rigid and I would prefer not to snap one.
 
Any suggestions? I really don't want to spend more $100 if possible. I found a gentlemen from Turkey on eBay making and selling LODs for $50 but I don't know enough to know where they are worth it.  I have I think gone through most major producers but is the $299 cable one is producing $280 better then the cheap Fiio? I assume so but damned if I can prove it.
 
I am starting this thread because I have gone through so many old threads on this site, some 3 years old, that I don't know if the info is still current or not. So please bear with me. I have two weeks or so until my amp and some IEMs from 1964ears come in and I would like to be done with this. 
 
You know, my poor departed mother was an engineer and I am really feeling like I should have listen to her more often.

The Fiio one is made from an OCC copper interconnect sourced from Oyaide, a top Japanese brand and super expensive ordinarily, but since it's mass produced (and molded) it is cheaper and more durable than any one that is made by hand.
