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

    This a new item on the extress. 7N OCC Silver plated copper wire. I am showing NiceHCKs version @ $99. the alternate version is $79

    Trying this one on a 12BA iem. Sounds great. Definitely got my monies worth in cables.

    Last one I can't show. Lol. But these two are the best out of the three anyways.

    I have often wondered why they are cheaper if its the same cable...

    I think they are more about volume. NiceHCK is more about margins. I noticed their iems are sold in the same manor too. Always cheaper at the alternative.

    they are cables 130 (nicehck, eidolic styled jack, chin slider), 131 (alternate, oyaide styled jack, no chin slider), and 132 (lunashops, furutech and oyaide styled jack available, no chin slider), in my list. they are all same length, same wire (pure silver + gold plated copper..).
    the difference of resistance/conductivity between them might be due to jack used and solders. eidolic styled is a wider jack the the others, good for soldering thick wires. also, braid work (tightness) might affect to resistance, because total length of the wire can be different.
    alternate cable (131) can be found at lunashops and other shops. oem made. they are identical, except of the brand stamped on the divider.
    nicehck version uses different divider and adds a chin slider.

    Does anyone sale cables where one side has the jack and the other just has two wires? Possibly a custom job?

    What are the prods on the L and R wires for?
    I'm guessing all these cheap cables are above $10

    I buy a lot of DIY upgrade cables from Aliexpress which come with a jack and unterminated wires on the other end

    So with all said and done, what is the cable to buy (i need 4.4mm balanced) for the Solaris? I don't want to sacrifice any bass.

    following this guy @duaned, I want the same material used in ALO Ref8 cable, but better for the bucks.... And additional no Microphonic effects with 4.4mm balanced and mmcx....

    browsing myself left me confused, so many choose.....

    Fan music C6 cables from Massdrop for the HD 58X for 59.99. For a little bit higher price you can get one from Articcables on ebay.

    Hi everyone, I recently moved my Grant Fidelity TubeDac-11 to my desk, and need a longer power cord. Currently I have the one shown below, it is 5 ft, it seems like a pretty basic cable so I don't need to go upgrading it to a $100 cable on a $300 amp. Something around 7ft - 8ft should work. States 20A 125V. Any comparable recommendations would be appreciated.
