Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    Happy shopping fellas. Sales start NOW. Go for what you think is a deal. Get them cables. It is the one time of the year they will be this cheap. There are other days when there are some specials but not quite like it is now. If you have your mind set on a cable. Go for it. I expect plenty of pics.

    Happy hunting!!

    Is it possible to buy the braided 7n occ wire alone? I would like to make one cable myself, I think $100 is a bit much to spent on a cable for my ~$250 headphones..
    So far I've found only the really thin braided ones.
    I really love the IT01-ish style of cable, cant be so expensive :D and your measurements really impressed me.

    nice porn you are showing!

    i went for these: (they got a good discount at 11.11)

    not so luxury as yours (not eidolic or similar plugs and dividers, no shiny cables), but expect them being very well built and having superb materials.
    i prefer to bet for hand made by skilled particulars (all my interconnect cables come from ghentaudio).

    I assume you’re good with soldering, since you asked about the bare cable.

    I bought the IT01 directly from ibasso for $35 shipped, which is a steal for the price. Then, you’d simply have to change the mmcx for 2-pin.

    i think the wire is this: acrolink 7n occ, 0.1mm*65, 20awg.

    anyway, if you search in ali, you can get the ready made cable cheaper than $100 (you could get it for about $75-$80 if you have the ali coupon of $10).

    Thanks.
    I had the same idea as you, bought a nice 2.5mm copper cable from NiceHCK ($15) and this adapter from Ugreen (both 2.5 to 3.5 and 3.5 to 2.5) and also one noname piece, unfortunately, neither of them works :D (Ugreen failed me for the first time)
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/UGREEN-Gol...h=item3d457ea508:g:HB0AAOSw9N1VkiCp:rk:1:pf:0

    Does this one you linked before work? Right angle is a plus!

    yup, that okcsc adapter works ok (the ugreen is for TRRS mic, not TRRS balanced, R-,R+,L+,L-)
    measured (L+, R+, L-, R-; mΩ):
    3.5m-3.5hBAL okcsc 6€ 12/13/12 18/14/12 10/12/11 11/13/13 (3 adapters)
    others are more expensive, but shorter and lower cold(-) signals resistance:
    3.5m-3.5hBAL astrotec 17-22€ 15 15 2.4 3.7
    3.5m-3.5hBAL eidolic 35€ 10.3/10.3 9.4/9.3 1.9/1.2 2.7/3 (2 adapters)

    I suspect the previous post with the 16 cores is the same stuff with added 8 more cores.

    They look like the same built quality. Tempted to get a pair to compare, 16 core to 8 core. As you asked, is there any real difference?

    16 core may be a bit heavy.
