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

    do you have a link Hakuzen ???

    i bought mines at taobao, but now you can get them at aliexpress, Haldane shop (also available at DD-Audio/linsoul, but more expensive):
    i own various types, and these are the best quality ones in my stock.
    Haldane has a large variety of termination adapters

    AnotherqQuestion Hakuzen,

    I'm looking for something like this

    Is Haldane a good option to get it or should look some where else???
  5. hakuzen
    Haldane seems to stock chinese audio items which can be found at taobao, at a decent price (to buy at taobao, you need an agent and his cut, besides of higher shipping costs).
    it's nice to find shops stocking items you only could find at taobao in the pass.
    about that adapter, i've not tried it. wire doesn't look bad, and neither 6.35mm plug. but the 4.4mm socket is a cheap chinese one.
    i'd better get a 4.4mm to 3.5mm male adapter, plus a decent short 3.5mm to 6.35mm adapter (they are below 3mOhm, high quality, or below 7mOhm, cheaper ones), to fit both 3.5 and 6.35mm outputs, because it's harder to find a 6.35mm to 3.5mm male adapter.
    EAC adapter (number 64 in my list of jack adapters) costs near the double than the adapter of your link, but quality of plugs and wire is miles away better.

    The Faaeal Hibiscus copper Litz cable is $22.50USD. Is there a cheaper and equal option for a BQEYZ iem?

    This Hibiscus iem is new but some are saying they can find the whole shebang (litz cable/iem) for $39USD on Shopee which makes me wonder if the cable is even that good...

    I saw EAC has adapters for sale, as well. Have you tried them? I was thinking of getting a right angled MMCX to 2-pin one together with the 175 cable.

    Just in :)

    Some close ups of the 175, qdc stock cable, and local made pure silver cable respectively

    I'm looking for a new cable for my IMR Zenith R1. I think I will go for a copper cable from Electro acousti or upgrade cable from IMR itself. Can someone tell me if there is difference in sound between UP-OCC and OFC cables?
  12. muths66
    from hazuken list is 171/198 pure copper depends u want how many cores
  13. fokta
    Will tty to answer these by my exp. while waiting others opinion...

    UP-OCC highlight is dark background and the separation it creates. While adds Litz, it will make more darker background.
    If only Regular OFC, OFC Copper will emphasize on Low (Mid bass)... if compare directly with UP-OCC Copper, you will get better detail on that Bass, the separation between Mid and Sub Bass.

    NOW, if with special tuning OFC like BRISE, It makes the LOW and MID more thicker. with Additional more proper staging between each freq, the result is 3D staging feel more (this what it's called special tuning). But BRISE really depends on Pairing (IEM and DAP).

    Guys, one more thing before i go ahead with the order- SE or balanced? I know this has been debated all along. Since I am getting a new cable and have this option, which would be better(sonically should there be any).
  15. facethemusic88
    Whole shebang??
