    Hey man, could you please clarify on what this "IT01 right side dying" rumour is all about? Mine just died yesterday - suddenly got a lot softer, and I'm wondering if it's a cable issue or unit issue. It is past the one-year warranty so I am rather anxious about it being a unit issue. If it's a cable issue I'll just jump on a TRN cable as per your suggestion, but I'll be in deep trouble if it's a unit issue...

    Do you think they will update the ISN S4 mmcx plugs with these ones instead also?
  4. Palash
    Don't know, maybe. The previous one is not bad if you don't change cables frequently.

    added cable 196 to the database.

    196. eac 6n occ+spc litz 4c (silver+copper,eagle,MV): 167..168..296..288 mΩ..[22.1g]..76..71 pF..[116cm]
    outer diameter: 4.6mm. length from splitter: 39cm.
    electro acousti 6n occ copper and silver plated copper hybrid cable. PE sheath.
    groups of twisted strands are twisted into each core, litz geometry.
    one material is used for positive signals, and the other for negative/ground, resulting in 26AWG for positive, and 28AWG for negative/ground. my unit uses balanced jack, which i prefer for these kind of cables.
    eagle gold plated plugs use to have very good quality.
    perception of tonality is what expected. full bass and airy treble. balanced. great highs detail.
    very good hybrid one, although i miss the deep stage of more expensive up-occ wires.
    with these wires, you feel the sound closer to you than with up-occ wires.
    it is very soft and ultra flexible wire. one of my affordable hybrid cables favorites.

    added cable 090 to the database.

    090. hck 4n ofc 4c (copper,furt,M): 177.. 202..193..190 mΩ..[24.9g]..92..89 pF..[127cm]
    structure: 0.075mm*56(OD:1.5mm/23AWG) 4n ofhc. PVC sheath advertised, but it's a very soft PE sheath.
    outer diameter: 5.5mm. length from splitter: 40cm.
    litz geometry (7/8 packs of 8/7 twisted strands, twisted between them into each core). and maybe litz enameling, because resistance measurements don't match 23awg (26AWG instead). improper litz remove before soldering could explain this discrepancy, like with cables 192 and 210.
    nicehck honest but great quality 4n ofhc cable. it's refreshing to find chinese cables with true wire quality advertised.
    good amount of bass. the result is warm. typical decent copper cable.
    it is very soft and ultra flexible wire. i'd rate this near cables 168 and 192.
    nice looking affordable quality copper cable.

    added adapter 64 to the adapters database.

    64. eac upocc AgAu+copper litz 8c eagle 4.4f-3.5m.....17...average (many measured)
    custom adapter from electro acousti (https://www.aliexpress.com/store/5003206), using same wires than cable 175.
    7.5cm (not counting plugs). neotech (taiwan) oem up-occ silver 99%+ gold 1% alloy, and frozen 7n up-occ copper litz (best silver and copper wires in my stock, imo).
    eagle 4.4mm female socket is not the usual cheap chinese socket. it is built for many insertions.
    3.5mm TRS male and 2.5mm TRRS male versions available as default options.
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000231198864.html (custom wires and plugs)
    8 cores of 28awg, 25AWG/signal.
    very high quality durable plugs (eagle, rhodium plated over gold plated beryllium copper):
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000227685853.html (eagle durable gold plated copper)

    much better quality than this (but also double price):

    54. FiiO LB-4.4m 4.4f-2.5m............................................~25
    i don't like much the plugs. 4.4mm female socket looks cheap.

    Hi, does anyone have any reccomendations for a cable for the ATH IM70s? I'd have gotten the cable swapped under warranty but that expired sometime last year, and the cable feels that it would go soon. I do have better pair that I usually use but sometimes I use the IM70s on occasion. Unless there's no one who makes cables with that connector anymore?

    If you just search for "ath im70 cable" on Ali, eBay, Amazon, you'll see that there are plenty of cables to choose from.

    most versatile solution is buying mmcx/2pin to ATH adapters, so you can use most of your cables. there are straight and angled adapters. like these:

    Absolutly! Those Adapters give me a lot of flexibility with my cables!
    Since i got two good cables from electro acousti i want to use them always on anything.

    Its great that this "haldane" shop sells the same stuff that you get on taobao cheeper but with shipping troubles or from linsoul for twice the price.
    I had twice trouble getting them over a proxy from taobao.. first time with ems customs just send it back after 4 weeks and this time DHL standard was suddenly transformed into DHL express and the post guy wanted 70 euros (!) today for 2 adapters for 28 euro.. its going back to china now... if they have no solution ill order them over aliexpress with their glorious ali standard shipping that fast and lflys ike a stealth bomber under the customs radar.
