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

    I think you might be right on this. I was just messing with the cable near the jack and it work normally for a sec when I pinch and bend them in some angle before the sound got cut off again. I think I should try to get it fixed myself as I really don't want to waste time sending it back and forth. Would be nice if I can get a partial refund though. Usually In a case like this, would re-solder the jack with the end of cable enough to fix it or do I need to tear the cable itself apart? because if it the latter it would get much more messy.



    yeah i think I like the look and sq of it though I can't really tell much with just one side working lol

    Got mine in balanced. Currently using it on my Andromeda S. Best version of the Andromeda S I have heard to date using that cable.

    maybe you can re-sold only the damaged solder (two wires), using the existent tin (or perhaps adding a bit); if not possible, you'll have to clean, cut and redo all them. i'm not an expert at all.

    yep, the plugs look like they will less stress the sockets.. but the wire used is far worse than the luna's. the luna's wire together with these plugs would be great.

    cable 1 is interesting. you might can find the type of wire used (i think i saw it somewhere, papri maybe, acrolink wire), so i can estimate its resistance.
    cable 2. neotech upocc wire is very well reputed (i use it for some diy interconnects), but very expensive, hence the price of that cable. but 26awg is thin, it's the minimum thickness per signal (equal to the thickness of 1 core, in the case of 4 cores cable) i'd consider. so conductivity won't be stellar. around 180-200mΩ. it looks like a well built cable, and appealing.
    cable 3. not neotech, but probably good quality wire as well. 24awg, around 125mΩ. looks well built and nice looking.
    cable 4. cable 131 in my list.

    The cable work normally now. Just re-solder isn't enough and I have to cut the part that was the problem and then connect with the jack from there.

    Had to wait about 2 months for it but today I received the NICEHCK MMCX/2Pin Connector 3.5/2.5/4.4mm Balanced 8 Core 6N GC-OCC and they are the best cable I got from Ali by far. The BGVP cable is OK but stiffer and has an overall less premium feel to it.
    Both cables are good and better than most of the stock cables. If you are searching for a higher end chifi cable: put these on your shortlist!

    My new set: Toneking T88K and the nicehck OCC cable: a lovely combination.

    Never heard of that IEM but it looks beautiful. How does it sound?

    And why did you have to wait 2 months for that cable? Was it a shipping problem?

    Shipping issues with black Friday and Christmas. Was in the Netherlands since December. Worth the wait though.

    The tonekings are very good, but its to soon for a proper review. Coming from nicehck m6 I do hear that the tonekings have better detail and are more resolving.

    I agree ... they are exceptional but with a linear sounding bass and sub bass.

    Do you have experience with the BGVP OCC cable? If I have any complaint about my current set-up it might be that it is a tad bass-lean. If you don't have experience with that cable I will compare them myself this weekend.
