    it seems same wire (silver/tin/alloy plated copper) than cable 051 of my list (still on transit). yours has protruding 2pins compared to flush 2pins of 051. the jack is also different, i prefer 051's one.
    051 was <$19 at May sales. expect similar wire quality than cables 052, 053, etc. (not 7n occ, of course). that grey color looks dope.

    So the part where it says 7n OCC doesn't matter ?

    While the banned seller's brand isnt explicitly stated, lets not bring it up again for the chance this thread gets locked

    I own this cable and don't like it at all. I have yet to find an earphone that it pairs well with. I almost believe that something is wrong with it, it's that bad. I have the mmcx version of it though, not the 2 pin.

    Ummmm...I hope that those prices are in Asian currency??!! If not, then NO WAY would I ever put out that kind of coin on a cable. The cheaper costs half of my entire home audio system that I sold 14 years ago!

    Yeah, but you can customize the plug. And they can engrave your name on the y splitter. That makes it worth the asking price!

    And those prices are USD.

    Yeah...mmmm...think I'll pass. Sure there's someone out there with enough disposable income to buy this, but just not me! Lol!

    Well, I was planning on burning some grocery bagfuls of $100 bills tonight in the furnace, but I might just use it to order a few of those cables instead.

    Thing is, probably half the cables that have been mentioned in the 100 or so pages of this thread probably SOUND better than these two. Gold plating may look nice, but it adds nothing to sound.

    A lot less microphonic than I feared (the Acrolink is 2-3 times stiffer and noisier), but the L earpice has a loose coupling. No sound cutoff so far, but it feels like all that free spinning will lead to premature wear of the connector, especially the axial pin receptacle.

    What has me considering purchasing this cable is the fabulous case that it comes in. It beats the traditional plastic bag hands down and imagine how you would look walking into the office carrying it.
