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

    Is this the best option for a sub $100 cable? I currently have this, will the crystal copper silver plated cable make noticeable difference with DM6?

    Ohh never thought about it! Will wait for impressions then

    added measurements of cables 128 (silver plated version of 125, 4 thick cores), 165 and 168 ("taiwan imported" wire and plugs, 4 cores copper occ and ofc respect.), 065 (jc ally copper color, 4 thick cores), and 070 (spc 16 cores, pink).

    128 has better jack and spliter than 125. difficult to find sound differences. sound is clean, will have to use this longer to see if i like it more than my fav 125.

    165 and 168 have the best quality mmcx plugs of my list (except of 100). precisely mechanized, they pop in and out easier, firm fit while allowing free rotation. jack and spliter are also great quality.
    they are not much flexible. sound is clean. difficult to find sound differences. chance to get an overall good quality and nice looking cable when around 70USD and 35USD respectively.

    065 cables are the cheap version of 125. very worse plugs and worse conductor quality, but sound is decent (less clean, some shouty impression), and price is fantastic.

    070 is another 16 cores cable. 16 cores are usually the softest and most flexible. nice pink color in this case, if you like it.

    i'm getting some analysis paralysis when trying to find sound differences of decent cables. used moondrop blessing yesterday to do cables AB. the differences are so subtle, i can't recommend expensive cables for such small improvement. just keep proportion.
    i'm not going to purchase more cables (tons owned, i'll start gifting and selling them locally, instead). will only add cables other people send to me.

    Im blind, sorry

    for 2pin, the 0.75mm and 0.78mm, where is it measured? So I can measure it for my headphones myself (CustomArt Ei.xx 2pin recessed). Or does the 0.3mm even make any difference?

    these are my arbitrary chosen numbers to identify the cables of my list (check the link at my signature)

    what would this cable be considered with your list? Sorry, I'm also trying to understand your list.

    That’s 062 if I’m not mistaken.

    Very, nice looking! So, any changes to the sound? Just curious...

    They really DO look like a great way to make cables you have work with other terminations and look quality built...but Massdrop (or as they are now know...Drop). I can't handle all their drama. I'm a pretty patient kinda guy, and I am not in a constant hurry to get stuff I buy (1-3 weeks delivered after I order and pay is fine with me), but Massdrop takes longer, always. And they aren't very honest when it comes to shipping info, like tracking. Wish this product was available on Amazon or Ali. I'd even pay an extra $5-7 bucks to actually get it ON TIME. Massdrop always has excuses.
