There are more options on AliExpress, such as the KBEAR 16 core Silver plated cable, but I’d wait for a sale before buying a cable on AliEx.
Wow that KBEAR is possibly even nicer looking than the Tin T3's. Guess I know what to get when 11/11 pops up! Thank you very much. :)

Hola,
Anyone a recommendation of sennheiserh hd 25 cable with L-plug, no coiled cable?
I use Sennheiser hd 25 for broadcast und film, mixing and recording for sound devices.
I need a new cable with a long durability and quality. The headphone ist for outfield audio production.
A recommendation for cheap maybe AliExpress is very well:)

Thanks
I just checked Lunashops and they have a bunch of cables for your headphones. Take a look here. http://www.lunashops.com/search.php...zZWFyY2hfZW5jb2RlX3RpbWUiO2k6MTYwMzAzNDc0Njt9

This is a link for Aleixpress searched for HD25. https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesal...01018072909&SearchText=Sennheiser+HD25+cable+

If this link dont work. Just put in the search bar Sennhiser HD25 cable and you will see a bunch of listings.

Unfortunately I don't know too many folks here that has used any of these so I can't say if they are good cables or not but the prices seems reasonable and I would try a few sets to see if they will serve your purpose. Good luck.

Out of curiosity, is the £23 TRIPOWIN C8 the same as the NICEHKC C8-1 that's under £10? I've looked back on this thread but getting confused cos they all look the same lol.

Makes me sick the prices UK sellers on Amazon and eBay are pricing these cheap Alie 8 and 16 cores... £60-£80. I've asked some of them how they can charge over £50-70 their true value and they either say excessive shipping costs or in two cases the ones on Aliexpress are counterfeit lol.

I just asked someone if they'd take £7.74 for the new 8 core Y***** cable they're wanting £43 for.

Anyone have the CEMA super copper cable? I was chatting with them on AE today and that is the cable they recommended. Apparently it is softer with virtually no microphonic effects according to them. Haven't heard much about that one on HF.

I think @twister6 reviewed that one and a single crystal copper cable. Check his reviews.

TRN T3 (4.4mm version)

20201026_145459.jpg

20201026_145615.jpg

20201026_145707.jpg

20201026_145727.jpg

20201026_145742.jpg

20201026_150123.jpg

(top = Kbear limpid, middle = TRN T3, bottom = Tri Through)

Measurement: 0.19ohms

8-core cable with a working chin-slider. But the ear hooks are very strong and worst of all the connector isnt straight so when connected to a source it is a bit bent (fortunately it works). I got 2 cables and both have that same problem, guess TRN QC is pretty bad. Oh and the divider on the picture above (the one with the TRN logo) is actually as scratched/unclean as it looks.....

Cant recommend it due to that and that we got cables like the Kbear Limpid and the Tri Through that are cheaper and of higher quality.

4.4mm version costs 28 usd.

Thanks! Appreciate your efforts to measure and analyze this cable. Quality seems to be it's big fault. That's why I'm steering away from TRN...with all their products.

I have three TRN T3 cables currently, and so far, I haven’t had any problems with them :fingers_crossed:. That being said, the KBEAR Limpid/NiceHCK silver litz cables seem better made, and they are of normal length (the T3 is short).

I use Electro Acousti hybrid and copper cable, quality is really good. Connectors are solid. Cable feels soft, I am happy with them

Any Hifiman SUNDARA owners here? please reccomended a good 2.5mm Trrs Balanced Male to Dual 3.5mm Male Cable. The one's I found on Amazon has reviews stating it's stiff and microphonic. Any other options?
Thanks guys
