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

    Do you think a TRN T2 16-core Silver-plated cable would be good for the Y*nY*o V2 (rev. 3)? I've been wanting to try the latest version.

    I hear that the V2 benefits from the TRN V20's cable. I'm not sure what kind of cable that is, but it looks slim.

    Maybe I could get away with the NiceHCK 8-core SPC on such a mobile-driven IEM.

    So with discounts and the Hakuzen code. 175 ended up being $170. Good deal. Looking forward to it.

    170? 8 core version I guess. Let it be seen here when you have a chance!
     
  7. facethemusic88
    Mate, was it 8 core or 4 core you got for the 175?

    Also, I remember seeing a post in the first few pages in this thread where you had the pure silver 7n occ gold plated cable paired with your solaris. How is that compared to the recent rec'd cables? Thanks man.

    8 core. 4 cores gonna be much cheaper, Got the blue wire too.

    "Looking for a bigger soundstage, with a more defined yet impactful bass/subbass". both accomplish this. ISN C16 is warm and bass heavy compared to both. i like 210 bass even more than 175, but they are near. quite detailed bass textures, way tighter bass than C16. boosted bass of Kanas Pro gets benefited of this bass cleanliness surely.
    "I wish for a bit more detail and soundstage in the highs". both accomplish this, big difference compared to C16. in this regard, 175 is the clear best, although 210 is very good as well..

    yes, you can.
    up-occ copper litz is frozen. guess AgAu (up-occ silver 99% + gold 1% alloy) is not frozen, and not litz (not enameled strands).

    if shop coupon codes are compatible with head-fi/hakuzen discount, $189 - $15 shop coupon code - 10%off ($17.4) - aliexpress black friday "friday10" code ($10) + $1.9 shipping = $149
    if they aren't (probable), $189 - 10%off ($18.9) - aliexpress black friday "friday10" code ($10) + $1.9 shipping = $162
    congrats, wish you enjoy it as much as i do.

    Not exactly like that. Unfortunately it is either friday10 code or shop coupon code. It does not stack on top of each other. I think I got the shop coupon code. Both does not work unfortunately reason why my order cable out to be $170. He only gave me a $5 discount so not exactly 10%. Thats OK. Guy gotta make his money. I am sure it will be worth it. Cant wait to try it on my phones.

    I would like to give a try to this famous 175 (4 cores version) but when I try to pay via PayPal on aliexpress I face an error "CSC_7200022". Tried 5x times without any success now, is this due to Black friday saturating Aliexpress? :frowning2:

    I've paid 150 bucks for my comet. Isn't a $175 cable overkill?! I mean is it gonna improve the sound quality considerably that justifies paying as much as the IEM's worth?
    I only use my IEM for outside, 80% of the time listening to Monday Morning Podcast Billy red balls! I think 210 would be good enough of an upgrade to my current cable which is...kinda awful!

    yes, if you don't plan to use the cable with other better iem, that's a clear overkill.
    the cable doesn't improve sound quality further than your source+iem limits. the cable doesn't sound, it just degrades the different frequencies in a minor or major grade.
    210 would be good enough, and also 175 4 cores version (similar price)

    I ordered the 8-core 175 in Blue, as well!

    And yes, I can confirm that the discount codes cannot be stacked on top of each other. I think I got the shop coupon code + around 5% Hakuzen discount.

    Thank you. I just bought an Aeolus and with not much more to spend, Comet should be good enough for listening on the bike where I have to wear helmet. Otherwise, I don't shy away from wearing the biggest cans outside :D
    You said 175 has better plugs compared to 210. How bad are 210 plugs? and is it the MMCX on 210 which isn't great or the TRS connection? Also it would be awesome if you could explain a bit more why the plugs on 210 aren't so great.
