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

    Cable #170 Arrived !

    Never really knew what people meant by Beautiful cable until I got this. Very soft supple cable that feels like a woven silk thread rather than a metal copper cable. Can’t help touching it in amazement.
    Loving the colour too.

    The build quality of cable is superb - very impressive for hand built. The mmcx fitting with DM6 is perfect.
    Definitely better than I imagined and I’m a fussy person.

    I purchased the Balanced 2.5MM version even though I don’t have a source with balance out yet. That source is on order - FIIO BTR5. Looking forward to experiencing the cable in a Balanced setup.

    For now I’m using the ddHiFi 2.5-3.5mm adapter to connect to my LG V30 DAP.

    Sound wise I’m very pleased using it with current setup. I have only had a short period of listening in the day hours. Sub bass has more texture, soundstage is improved and there is no loss of detail in the highs even though it is all copper cable. Sparkly and detailed without spikes that some say of DM6.

    I need undisturbed evening listening time to really get a better grip of the sound quality.

    Some porn for now ..

    Hey there @hakuzen - received my 11/11 order a few days ago (NiceHCK C16-3 and 053 CT1 from your list - all with MMCX from the NiceHCK store on AE) and finally got around to doing some resistance measurements (Brymen BM867s with 2 decimal places in delta-ohm mode - no milliohm available though...) and here are the results starting at the tip of the male jack:

    1) C16-3 with 2.5mm: 0.31, 0.25, 0.26, and 0.25
    2) C16-3 with 4.4mm: 0.29, 0.23, 0.25, and 0.27
    3) 053 CT1 with 2.5mm: 0.09, 0.11, 0.10, and 0.12
    4) 053 CT1 with 4.4mm: 0.06, 0.12, 0.10, and 0.11

    The 053 CT1 cables look very close to the 115 milliohm number you have on your list for MMCX connectors. I think the C16-3 numbers here might be some of the first measurements reported for those cables if I am not mistaken. Do they look to be in the ballpark of what might be expected for the 16 core wires being used?

    Hope others find this information useful...

    Cable 170/171 might be good.

    175 (balanced) and 174 (bright) for sure. about a darker cable, i'm not sure, but this is because i use to avoid bass boost everywhere due to my personal preference. i like cables 210 and 170/171 for bass, but both are in the tight textured side. so yes, 198 is appropriated if you are looking for huger bass cable.

    090 is a good and affordable copper cable. i prefer 196 (hybrid), though. better plugs quality, more balanced perception, better highs.
    but for CE6P, you could consider to invest a bit more in a UP-OCC cable. you'd notice and enjoy the difference. cables 175 (silver+copper, 4 cores) or 170 (copper, 4 cores), for example.

    yea, glad you enjoy it. soundstage, black background, textured lows, and no loss detail at highs, turns 170/171 in my favorite copper cable.

    i concur on this

    thanks for measuring! your measurements are very valid to me, i could add them to my database if you like.
    yes, they are in the line of previous measured 16 cores cables. and i expect wire quality will be similar too. maybe the plugs could be a bit better than previous ones, but can't confirm it.

    Hi, been eyeing for a bang for the back cable for TRN V90 at the 40$ and below mark is there such thing like that? Or should I upgrade my expectations regarding the word "cheap" (like the name of this thread) and spend 100$ just for a cable? Thank you.
  9. hakuzen
    for a $40 iem, i wouldn't suggest spending more than $15-$20 in a cable. anyway, if your budget is $40, last cables checked in that segment are ok, 090, 192, 196 in my list.
    for trn v90, i'd pick cable 196 from the three, to help vocals and treble.
  10. RyuzakiL26
    Thanks for your suggestion master :ksc75smile: gonna check it now :o2smile:

    Anyone own this cable? Screenshot_2019-12-08-00-00-09-86_57e717c094f371a1dada6567a1123b99.png Screenshot_2019-12-07-23-59-06-35_57e717c094f371a1dada6567a1123b99.png

    There is also one identical cable from a banned seller which looks same and description but the price is 25 percent lower and free shipping. Screenshot_2019-12-08-00-04-15-39_57e717c094f371a1dada6567a1123b99.png

    Anyone have experience with the above cables.I am planning to pair with zs10 pro.

    i don't have it sorry. it doesn't look bad.
    it's cable 115 in the database (all of them, just different plugs). i own the transparent sheath one. very nice looking cable. stiff, not much flexible. good conductivity. decent silver plated copper cable, sound is ok.
    i think it can pair well with zs10 pro.

    Do you happen to know if these have Ear Hooks? Pure Copper right? The next one / step up would be the : US $82.00 | UP-OCC COPPER litz structure 4Core Upgraded Copper Cable litz 3.5/2.5/4.4mm Earphone Cable MMCX 2PIN

    you can ask them to make earhooks for all their cables.
