I received few days ago my 2 cables from NiceHCK :
They are for sure my actual favorites! I will do some proper reviews soon, but here is my first quick impressions: the 7N crystal copper tighten slightly more bass (and subbass) area with mids, while the 8 core pure silver brings more clarity in details on highs and mids. They are both excellent value for their price. I really likes the softness and flexibility of the 8 core pure silver, while the 7N copper is very stiff, had to use some water boil technique to soften if slightly more but overall still stiff after that. I would say that the 7N is more for headphones than beeing a IEMs/earbuds cable at first sight. It is just a monster compared to the pure silver, extremely big and heavy, much more that I thought on pictures!
I wasn't a cable believer until now, but now I can clearly see difference between a pure silver cable and 7N copper. It is very perceptible, and it makes all my other cables until now sounding so bad, haha :)
This 7N copper cable is my new best companion (and highly recommended) for NiceHCK EBX earbuds.

Has anyone here heard from Jim or anyone at NiceHCK the past couple of days? I ask because I placed an order for a few cables a few days ago and was trying to make sure that they had received payment (thru PayPal) and that they had my correct shipping address. I've sent them a couple of messages and so far I haven't heard back from them at all, which is strange. I usually hear back from Jim within a few hours or a day at most. Just wondering.

Did you log into PayPal and see if they received payment?

Hello, guys, has anyone here have tried to change moondrop kanas pro cable to balanced version? Is there some good cable to fit this IEM (it has 0,78 2 pin connection). The original cable with KPE i like a lot but it is single ended 3.5 and i need also balanced option with 2.5 plug so very interested if someone has experience there with this iem. Perhaps there is also some adapters going from single ended KPE cable to 2.5 balanced plug.
Usually using cooper, has someone seen something good in in aliexpres or eBay.
Thanks a lot for sharing your experience..

if you plan to use your source balanced output, you need a balanced cable. adapters not recommended, they have to short cold signals, and that's not good for the source amplifier.
the opposite is ok: using a balanced cable with a single end output, through an adapter.

Thanks for explaining. Only as Kanas single end cable is really good in my opinion so wanted to use it also with balanced output of my source Fiio m9 (which planing to get soon). But as you explained more about adapters - now will look for separate cable with balanced 2.5 plug. Seems that mmcx and 0,75 2 pin are much more options than 2 pin 0.78. .

A little question about this one from Yinyoo, got the same as 7N crystal copper from NiceHCK, is it very soft ? or stiff ?
Its almost identical to the one you have ordered in the plain colour and is as stiff as the one you have in grey.

some cables...
nice porn collection.. a true jewelry stand

A little question about this one from Yinyoo, got the same as 7N crystal copper from NiceHCK, is it very soft ? or stiff ?
from my list (spoiler): it's exactly the same wire than your silver plated "7N" copper cable, just with transparent sleeve instead of smoked
115. pure silver.. plated copper wire. (TPU insulatedLayer 0.05mm*50 + shield 0.05mm*45)*4c. equivalent to 24.5awg when using shield layer (two cores/wire, so equivalent to 8 cores). shiny white or grey available, great look. soft, but not much flexible, even considering the loose braid.
white: spc+shield 4c[8c] (grey/white silver,oyde,MV): 137/128..136/126..131/131..139/139..[27]

grey (hck version):

you can find many options with 2 pin 0.78. check my list. you can find most of them in 0.78 2pin version.
all cables i buy now are 2.5mm balanced, because you can use them with single end outputs as well. about adapters, you can choose adapters with wire or short adapters (better conductivity, but more stress to the socket).

Thanks, very informative
But I'm a bit lost now, copper = silver then?
It is said as pure silver, but on the link I purchased from NiceHCK, it's claimed as copper?
I really thought I bought a crystal copper only, and not silver :frowning2:

As far as I can tell they did; for three days now the money is missing from my account and there are no refunds...
