    So, that's why some of the stuff seems to be more expensive than at my local store. Hmm now I know why

    These are no where close to litz and they don't even mention its litz anywhere... cable 175 would be undoubtedly better in all respects IMH(humble)O

    When the local copper and silver copper, to hand-Way reported; 8 Shares, formed, also brought not the same sound.
    Alcohol thick, clear, show, this line with a significant change; sound performance in the original material, but also more balanced sound than the same bit

  8. bogginhead
    So...anyone have any suggestions for best cheap (under $40) pure copper or (if even possible) OCC copper litz / UP-OCC?

    if your exact cables are not found in my database, i've not tried them, and can't confirm the wire used.

    the plugs of cable 210 don't look bad quality. in fact, i guess they are better than most cheap chinese plugs. but plugs of 175 are more expensive, due to hard rhodium plating over gold plated beryllium copper. more durable, they are similar quality than top brands plugs.
    just surf through taobao searching for plugs, and you'll find most of the plugs used in chinese cables, and their price.

    cable 192. imo, it's the best 6N OCC/UP-OCC copper litz cable below $40 in my list. ultra flexible and soft, check comments in my database. its price has been lowered a lot during last two days, matching the price of DIYing it. the link has also changed.

    no taxes charged to spain here.
    so the whole aliexpress site is charging taxes when buying from US? it sounds like another chapter of commercial war between US and China

    Can confirm no tax to Barcelona/Spain. Purchased like 10-12 articles in different stores.

    EU buyers are living with VAT BS for years. Only difference is we're paying 20-ish % of value to the local customs on every order outside of EU over 22 euros
    So you want to buy new DAP or phones whatever that's 400eu sir, and with taxes and DHL that would be total 520eu. Yay

    I'm a bit lost.... Like i said i have some wire from norne audio and i want to try another one for the fun and thank to Hakuzen for recommending neotech but i don't understand all the difference between, up-occ, cryo, litz... What is the best for my HD800 because i want to keep the clarity and resolution(i already noticed going from stock to the norne audio wire give me a more precise soundstage)

    Depends how lucky you are, and how much customs staff decides your parcel is worth. Usually with cables and small articles no tax no problem.
