My 2 cables arrived before my phones. Praying for the delivery call TODAY!
XINHS 8 core graphene with 4 pin xlr. Scored during the summer sale. 2 meters for $107. Psyched. Came with plastic protection for the plugs and a little hard case. Class act that guy.
Hey, anyone know his name?
And Lunashops 8 core silverplate occ. Looks fine but the braidung is not as perfect as XINHS.
No unusual smells noted. 🤪

Hello everyone , Yesterday I received my FH3s and while peeling the earhooks from the cable I slightly damaged the plastic covering the cables (didnt damaged the actual cables just the cover) ... so I want to buy a spare cable just in case.

Any recommendations? Fiio stock cable is around €30 at fiio official store so if the price is lower than €30 would be really nice. Big plus if it has black connections! Im not very fond of the chrome looks.

Thanks.

I use a KBear Rhyme with my FH3. It's less than $20, has black connections and is good quality for the price.

I use this on my FH3, all black looks great,
really soft cable,
I recommend a Final Audio E eartips for your FH3, get the black one,

btw, anyone asked if XINHS got frozen sterling silver cables like CEMA?

Oh damn, 6N OCC silver, that's some good stuff. That one reminds me of the stock T2+ cable which is actually one of my favorites, super light and soft, though a little on the thin side and can tangle. I like to keep things simple, OCC copper or silver of at least 5N purity, not plated with anything. Still just rocking Faaeal 4 core OFC rn, but I hope to try Xinhs when they set up shop in the US.

You know i always wonder if the coathanger had similar enough resistances to the other cables they tested by virtue of being shorter and thicker than other cables.
Pure iron is about ten times less conductive than pure copper. Then steels are typically 3-5 times less conductive than pure iron. So thicker (and typically shorter) wires were compensated by significantly larger resistance.

There were many different coathanger tests, in some the resistance were definitely matched.
