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

    Absolutely add whatever you want I don't care about credit. The more the database contains the better all of us can be on deciding where best to spend our money.

    Awesome work! Interesting to find out that the silver/copper hybrid is one element per terminal, wouldn't have guessed it. If they're the same OEM, then that OEM appears to be doing good work (aside from the weird element/terminal thing). Great contribution to the community, so the pleasure's all mine to supply the cable :D

    I know this is probably the wrong thread to ask, but I figured with all of the know-how here that someone would probably know. Can anyone tell me how an 8 core adapter cable would be soldered to a 3.5mm trrs plug? I'm reterminating an old adapter of mine; the only change is from 3.5mm to 3.5mm trrs balanced (the other end is a 2.5mm trrs female). Every strand is silver; there's not much way to differentiate the strands at all. It'll be for use with my iFi Nano Black Label.

    So you’re going to a balanced source?

    Do you know what the pin arrangement weds to be? Because they’re not all the same.

    I am looking to buy 130 but I am a bit convinced if it would work with 2 pin recessed socket. Anyone can confirm that before I put an order?

    Is i130 best choice for me? Have Ei.xx and looking for a better Soundstage and a bit brighter sound. I like V shaped sound and Ei.xx is pretty warm.

    Anyone gonna try the KBEAR cables?
    Saw the 8 and 16 core today for $20-ish and 40-ish but the % off hasn't started yet but should in a couple days like many Ali new arrivals.

    I have a silver KB Ear 8-core cable. It’s very well made.

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that KB Ear is Kinboofi (ie KinBoofi). The Kinboofi cables I have are nicely made as well.

    Yep, was gonna ask if they were recognized as something existing already or if they were new. I did see they are listed as YinY** brand so not sure if they were rebranding an existing cable or are they actually something new.

    Mine has no branding anywhere other than KB Ear. Usually the stuff from that seller you mentioned has their own logo or branding. Some sellers put their name in the search listings or descriptions for extras exposure I guess.

    Look at how much stuff is on Amazon with some other company name in the title. Like I’ve seen dozens of listings for KZ earphones (with KZ logo and branding) but with some no-name seller’s name photoshopped in the box. It’s not private label; it’s literally just using their name as if they made it.

    Like if I sold Apple iPhones as “Slater phones”, and photoshopped my face over the Apple logo. But when you receive the product, it’s all Apple branding and no Slater anything. Why some companies do it is beyond me. It’s just misleading and confusing for people.

    130 is an all rounder cable, about sound and flexibility, and would match what you are seeking for.
    unfortunately, 2pins version is intended for flush sockets; it would probably work with your recessed socket (make contact), but the connection wouldn't be secure, easy to get disconnected.

    He could always file down the plug a little, like @Dsnuts did.

    do you mean to unscrew the shell of the 2pins plug a bit, and file down around the 2pins rectangle, to make it protrudes a bit more? not easy work, specially if the shell is glued
