    Marking this thread to read later. I’m going to be on the hunt for some cheap new cables for my LCD-3s.

    Can you guys recommend me a thin, lightweight, flexible 2pin 0.78mm cable? I just received an 8-core silver-plated one from a certain seller and it's really, really horrible. It's so heavy it's literally forces IEMs out of my ears.

    How necesary do you guys find the ear hooks to be? I see some cables come without them. Are there replacement ear hooks?

    Ear hooks help with isolating the earpiece from cable movement and decrease micro-phonics caused by that. You can essentially make your own using heat shrink tubing from the hardware store or the ghetto version, take a bread tie wire and wrap it around the cable.

    Good question. Both have some different sound properties. I love that copper cable on all BA earphones. Brings out the best it seems from multi BA earphones. The recent 8 Core pure silver cable I bought from Lunashops. Brings extra clarity detail and a tighter bass end which helps with dynamic or hybrid earphones. So it depends on what type of earphone your using the cable for.

    At current prices that Lunashops pure silver 8 core is a better deal at $70.

    Oh by the way. I heard that Aliexpress next big sale day will be 03/28/2019. I know this is 3 months down the road but all of our recent cable purchases will be good resource to know what is a good deal. That NiceHCK 8 core OCC cable is about as good as it gets for a pure copper cable. In hind sight if I would have known how good that cable was I would have bought another for the same price I bought mine for. There is an alternate version of the same cable by the way. If you know what I mean.

    DSC06568.JPG Some cable pron. Finally got all my cables. was happy to see the exact cables I ordered were delivered. Took an amazing 1month and a bit over 1 week to get to me. I am very surprised my cheapest cable from this bunch is actually a good solid cable. Worthy of using on my Andromeda S. Sounds fantastic on the Andro S. The gold colored silver coated OCC cable OKCSC cable cost me $36 with coupons on sale day and it has surprised me how good this cable is. It is the best of all things cable material wise. OCC process. Copper and then coated in silver,colored in 24K gold. Blingy but sounds as good as it looks.

    I have the pure copper up top cable on one of my 12BA iems right now as I type. It is exactly how I would imagined a higher end purity copper cable sound make this iem sound. By the way it is $74 right now. I bought mine for $69 so not all that different in price. Most definitely worth the cash. Then there is the 4 core pure silver to the left. Haven't tried it yet but MSRP suggests higher end purity in the silver and high end connectors costing the most out of the bunch. Got a great price on that one. I believe I got it for $89. I am addicted to cable rolling what can I say. I scored huge on this most recent 11.11 sales. Can't find one cable I bought this time around that is remotely average in sonics and or build. 5 out of 5 cables and each one is like the title of this thread. Bang for buck for certain.
