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

KBear Rhyme still a good option or are there better OCC Copper Cables?
I still think it’s a great copper cable. The other good inexpensive OCC copper cables are the NiceHCK LitzOCC, which I’m pretty sure is the same as the KBEar Warmth. The Rhyme is an 8 core cable that feels more substantial than the other two 4 core cables mentioned.

I am gonna post a review of the NiceHCK version LitzPS pro 8 cored pure silver cables here soon. I did an A/B against the 4 cored variant using my Penon Orbs and there is a sonic difference between the 4 cored and 8 cored variant by the way.

I noticed an increase in head stage with better space for your music. This is consistent with my findings with thicker cables in general but more cores in this case does make a difference. The 4 cored version while maintaining the highly detailed nature of pure silver sounds a touch leaner using the same tracks. It is subtle but the difference is there.

Since these cables are affordable. I do recommend the 8 cored versions over the 4 cored variants. The 8 cored version punches even higher than the 4 cored variety in value.
@Dsnuts Any info on the new 24 cores? I don't know anything but blue and grey caught my eye.

Just saw those on NiceHCK web site. Must be brand new. If 16 cores is not enough hows about 24. Lol. I would assume more cores would mean fuller music notes but now the cables are gonna be like a rope connected to your eaphones. I am sure folks will chime in on details.We will see how they are.

Alloys suck at conducting compared to pure metals though.
Honestly, that was why I asked. It is alloy over copper which I interpret as mostly the blue color.

Can you measure the impedance when you get it? I'm curious.
I ordered another multimeter earlier in the week so hopefully, it arrives around the same time. Both already shipped.

Cool, i'd be keen to hear measurements of an equivalent 16 core to compare if you have one.

Got these codes from the NiceHCK Official Store (no idea if they'll work on the NiceHCK Audio Store)

C24-1 discount code → OEXO3AFMOUVM (reduce –US $23)
C24-3 discount code → DAI2WODA6651 (reduce –US $27) I'm guessing this one is supposed to be C24-2
C24-3 discount code →0WXXZB5YRY90 (reduce -US $28)

NiceHCK C24 cables may be a good choice for earbuds users since there appear to be no earhooks. I wear earbuds mostly cable down; earhook-less cables could still be used over-ear for IEMs and earbuds if desired.

Looks like they're marketed somewhat accordingly:

Interestingly, only C24-2 variant is described as SPC+AlloyCopper. C24-1 and C24-3 variants are described as just SPC.

The code does not work for me.
My experience with NiceHCK is progressively sad...
Starting with them promoting "graphene" cables :frowning2:

you have to remove the coins on checkout or else the code doesn't work.

if that fails, send them a message.
