Just for you guys. You saw it here first!



ISNs newest cable called the SC4. Stands for Silver Crystal copper 4 core hybrid. Basically ISNs version of the 175 in 4 cores. I am getting a set will let you all know how these are.

I was looking for an inexpensive 3.5mm braided male to female cable on AliExpress.
I chose this one:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32946262437.html
When it arrives, I'll let everyone know if I got a decent deal.
I received this audio cable today.
It sounds completely normal.
I didn't think I would like the braided cotton, but it seems fine so far.
(I was looking for braided nylon, and didn't notice the one I ordered was cotton until after I ordered it.)
When I ordered this cable, I got free shipping, and now shipping isn't free, so the deal isn't as sweet as before.
But I'm happy with the cable, and very happy with what I paid for it!
I love finding deals like this on AliExpress.

To give you a clue on what cables to go with. Phones that have a brighter tone/ sound design. Go with pure copper. Phones with a warmer tilt to the sonics go with an SPC or anything with silver on it.

sc4.jpg

Fresh from ISN web site. New to the market.

4 strands, 12 cores Pure silver and single crystal copper mixed woven

PVC transparent rubber Shield

Each wire outer diameter is 1.5mm

Aluminum alloy CNC cutting integrated slider

Secondary oxidation gold foil gold ring

The solder joint is silver–contained tin

Plug:3.5mm audio/2.5mm balanced Gold-plated copper plug

Cable length is 1.2M RP will be $109-$119

These should be right at the level of cable 210 or the Oalloy and C4-1 from NiceHCK. Should have some similarities to the 175 cables sonically should be interesting. I will let you guys know how they be once I get em.

Absolutely had 175 directly in mind! but that nearly half the prize!
ISN is pretty much hitting us with some insane cables.

Well it is a 4 core cable so the price is comparable to the 4 core version of the 175 cables. We will see how it is. Will let you guys know how they are once I get em.

TRN have a very bad reputation here.

The NiceHCKs are all great (I have C16-1 and C16-3, and others, but aren't discounted very much right now.

This
£14.26 71%OFF | KBEAR 16 core Silver plated Cable 2.5/3.5/4.4mm Upgrade Cable With MMCX/2pin/QDC/TFZ Connector with F1 KB06 HI7 ZSX BLON BL03
https://a.aliexpress.com/_c3xk3t
is the same quality (slightly tighter weave, better looking imho) as the C16 NiceHCKs but half the price right now. There are copper versions at similar prices as well.

You don't say what you're going to use them with but here's a hybrid I really like as well.
£11.61 73%OFF | NICEHCK 16 Core Copper Silver Mixed Cable 3.5/2.5/4.4mm MMCX/2Pin For TFZ ZSX ZS10 ST10 C12 C16 BA5 V90 NX7 PRO/DB3/F3/M6 BL-03

Thank you very much for the advice, will look into these ones! I forgot to tell you what's my gear, I'm mostly going to use it on a Fender fxa7 paired on an audioengine d3 (while I'm deciding which USB-c dac I'm switching to) I'm a bass head guy so always looking for good bass and rumble but I hate recessed vocals and can be quite sensible to sibilance.
