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

Still wondering what's going on with NiceHCK. They did get in touch with me after my last post asking if anyone here had heard from Jim. I'm just trying to make sure they used my correct shipping address; I very recently moved homes and it looks like (from their last message) they may have used the old address (I did make sure they had the correct new address a few different times before and after ordering). Maybe they're just really busy at the moment?

Pictures or it didnt happen. What you think about em? Any sound impressions?
Three cables
Penon Audio SPC - 15$
ISN Audio S8 - 32$
ISN Audio H8 - 32$
ISN Audio cables built quality is good enough. Worth 32$.

What`s the current lowest impedance cable that will fit for Kanas Pro (0.78mm 2-pin) for about 20$ max?

i think it is 053 and 052 from hakuzen pinned list, they measure around 100 mOhms

053
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/32916162030.html

052 for double the price but slightly better impedance
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/32881372793.html

also wait for his opinion if he has any updates
yes, check my list and go to KZ (2pin) below $40 cables list.

cable 052 golden color is ~100mΩ, but it's ~$40. silver color is ~130mΩ, at $30.
cable 053 brown color is ~110mΩ at $22 now (it costed $13 at 11.11). silver color is ~135mΩ, at $26 now. worse plugs than 052, though.
this 16 core cable, not in my list yet, https://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/32954926911.html could be ~130mΩ at $30 now (it was $26 recently), but not confirmed.
if you go below $10, best resistance is above 230mΩ, like https://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/32971728152.html (not confirmed though).

Thanks for info. KP needs 2-pin with 0.78mm and with longer plastic "square" after rounded part.
I`m still waiting for my 2-pin connectors so I could do my own 16-core cable but looking around if I can find something with reasonable price and great conductivity.

What about this cable? It would look great with KP imho and has 0.78mm connectors (polished): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/NEW-8-Core-Silver-Copper-Cable-2-5-3-5-4-4mm-Balanced-Cable-With/32882694116.html?spm=2114.10010108.1000013.1.7143727d5t3HCd&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreThisSeller&scm=1007.13339.90158.0&scm_id=1007.13339.90158.0&scm-url=1007.13339.90158.0&pvid=ffb58403-b9ea-4426-8e21-a868f45c4761
No matter what cable, I`m going to replace jack for Neutrik/Rean NTP3RC anyway...

i like that cable. it's cable 052 (copper color) in my list. check resistance and some links there (you can get a better price, below $25).
plugs, either jack (eidolic styled) or 0.78 2pin connectors, are great: threaded, not glued, very good conductivity and spacious, three progressive strain reliefs. you can rely on them, and reserve your neutrik plugs for other cables

Can You share cheaper seller for that cable?

Hi,

I'm looking for a new cable for my AKG K712 Pro, so I need a female mini xlr connector. Budget is around 50 €, is there anything with a really good bang for the buck on Ali? My alternative would be Forza Audioworks.

I know getting stuff from Lunashops will take a while as it always does. They make some great bang for the money cables but always takes a good month to get to me. So take that into consideration. If they cost similarly I would go with what is closer to you. At least you will get it faster.
