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

I have this cable on my 12BA earphones. It is better than the pure copper variety that I bought recently. This one is an imported crystal copper variety sold on aliexpress. They are both made well but I ended up liking this once over my other copper cables.


You just missed Aliexpress winter sale that had these as cheap as $50. They are going for $64 at the cheapest price and NiceHCK has theirs for $79. Even for $79 this cable is worth the money. If you look you will find it for $64. If I cant post a link here you know why. Crystal Copper. Who knows why they call it that. Maybe due to purity. But Iike what I hear with this cable. Brings the best of pure copper to your BA earphones. Highly recomemended.
Pmed you..

So this was a bit of a surprise. Admittedly I wasn't so sold on the idea of more cores equaling more/ better sound. I am a firm believer in how the cable quality is as far as connectors and material is concerned. This was on Penon today. This company seems to be making cables for Penon exclusively but for the price asked. This is 16 core crystal copper variety. Naturally I ordered one in mmcx and in 2 pin. The crystal copper cable I own now I am very happy with so this was a no brainer for me to try. I am sold on crystal copper on BA based earphones. I was gonna get an adapter to use with the mmcx version so I can try it on my new Zeus which I havent gotten yet but. To heck with that I just got a 2 pin version as well. I am just gonna go on my previous experiences with crystal copper. If these are the real deal this cable might be an excellent deal for what it is.

New 16 core crystal copper cable. $49.90 for the balanced version is what I bought. Will most definitely report now this cable is once I get them. https://penonaudio.com/isn-c16.html

Love how thick this cable is and looks pliable too with no ear guides. Cant wait to try this.

Those thicker, multi-strand,multi-core, or multi-wire cables are always impressive. A co-worker come by my desk a month or two ago to see how I was doing, since she hadn't seen me in awhile as she no longer worked in the same building. I was listening to music and don't recall the earphone, but the cable was one of those thick 8 core Ali cables that I probably spent $50 on during the sale. Anyway, she looked at my earphones, and was like, oh, nice earphones, then the cables, "Oh my God, that's a nice cable, I bet it gives really great sound", as she is feeling and holding the cable.
Yes, impress your co-workers and peers with earphone cables, the new bling; or the new fetish ;')

this looks really great!
if it's 0.05mm*19, you'll end with ~165mΩ (~25.3AWG).
if it's 0.08mm*19, ~75mΩ (~21.3AWG).

Agree with @Carlsan and @hakuzen

I ordered that cable just a few days ago. Thought it looked to have the same qualities as a much more expensive cable that I recently heard.
Could be quite a bargain if it sounds the same.

Oh for sure. It looks quality, I would love to hear your take on those with the CL2 :)
The Chinese 2 week festival just started anyways, so even if I order it today, I won't get it till mid February, so I am going to wait to see what you have to say about it.
What iem are you planning to use it with?
