Try Effect Audio Vogue Maestro. Just 99$
ISN Audio S8.
For brighter iems, I also rec the ISN C16. These ISN cables are really great. Excellent bass and detail retrieval. From what I can hear, I now know why BGGAR uses this. The Nicehck copper 8 core is also killer, especially on my NX7. Cable choices depend alot on the sound signature of the iem you're using them with, and the source.
If you compare the copper, silver/spc, and hybrid version (using same wire) of a cable, yes, the hybrid should be the most balanced and versatile.
Cable 175 is a custom hybrid cable ordered at Electro acousti: just select and add the components from their stock to your cart and ask for a quote (the manufacturer will add around $20 of hand work), and they'll make the cable for you.
This is what I was suggesting you to do, not to DIY your cable, about hybrid wire https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1000007736919.html (wire of cable 169); I've ordered a custom (ready made) cable using this wire, it will arrive next week.
From 130, 175, and 125, 175 (hybrid of frozen up-occ silver99%gold1% alloy + copper litz) is my clear favorite, but it's quite more expensive than the other two (more than 3x); another league. Then, 125 (copper, sound wise), and then, 130 (spc, comfort wise).
Sorry, very few quality cables feature a mic; all mic cables I've tried are low quality, sound wise; so I can't recommend any. IIRC, Lunashops has got some decent cables with mic.
Don't know if "end-game", but UP-OCC cables in my pics, comments, and links, part 1 section have little to envy from very expensive boutique cables. 2pins 2.5mm TRRS: copper, cables 170/171, cable 125 (no up-occ, no litz, stiffer); hybrids (keeping warmth, and great for vocals), cable 175 (silver+copper litz) or probably the new custom cable 177 (spc+copper litz), not in the list yet. Read considerations about these hybrids in last pages of this thread.
I've not tried that hybrid cable (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000009633191.html). Considering it uses same copper litz wire (not frozen) than https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33004747860.html, I guess it could be one of the best hybrids in that segment of price.
If I had to choose a copper cable under $40, I'd go for cable 168 (if MMCX); for 2 pins termination, https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33004747860.html (better plugs) and cable 125 are a bit more expensive ($60).
If I had to choose a hybrid spc+copper cable under $40, I'd probably try this (nice find, thanks!): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000009633191.html. Very good wire probably, and excellent plugs.
was about to ask about this same cable https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000009633191.html and it seems It will suit me well, but can I use the 0,78mm 2 pin that they use? Moondrop KXXS has 0,75mm doesnt it?
Awesome, I just ordered the hybrid cable. Hopefully it wont take morethan a month to get here.
I'm using Moondrop Blessing with these 2pin plugs and the fit is perfect. Guess KXXS use same recessed socket than Blessing.
A month? If there aren't issues into your country with local post carriers, your cable should arrive in 10 days or even sooner.
Please tell us your impressions when you receive and try this cable.
Ordered spiral dots on penon and it took honkong post + my local post office 3 weeks! Though ali will use china post this time so I hope you're right haha
I will definitely post impressions when it gets here!
The carriers used by Aliexpress Standard shipping to Spain (Sinotrans/Sinoair/Singapore post + local carrier Correos 72h) use to be much faster than Hong Kong Post or China Post packages.
Don't know the carriers used by AE Standard shipping when shipping to Philippines, but they'll probably be faster than penon Hong Kong Post.
Well just ordered it too, probably 3 weeks or more due to my countrys post carrier.
also got the seller to change the plugs to this one
Eagle Tape Packaging 0.78MM 2PIN
hope it still fits, since I like the look on this more.
I was ordering that 2pins (or mmcx) plug for my 8 cores cables, because it has got the widest opening for thick cables. But ordered the polished one (instead of frosted) in last order, because it pairs better with polished jack and splitter (hope its opening is wide enough to fit 4 cores).
Which one? link? Hope mine still fits thats the important part
any of the 2pins plugs in their stock fits KXXS perfectly
THIS seems to be the 165 (I don't know for sure of course). At the moment, a bit cheaper compared to the other sellers and it will be even cheaper in 2 days.
Edit: removed link because it's supposedly a banned seller.
