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

    I purchased B version some weeks ago (short one) and don't like the SQ compared to other cheaper ones. Maybe C version is better.

    quality of wire is similar to 165. in fact, found the wire used in 165 at this shop. 165 is my fav in terms of sound.
    they also have a 8 cores (28awg) cable, 25awg/signal for 148€. would love to see more 8 cores cables using this kind of wire

    are B or C version single crystal silver? D version is
  4. Broquen
    Both of them (B and C) are advised at FiiO site as single cristal or monocristaline as they call it.
  5. hakuzen
    B and C are silver PLATED copper. D is pure single crystal silver, no copper inside

    Yes, my bad. Did not pay attention to cable material (assumed that material was silver plated copper too). Waiting to read impressions, then :)

    Can anyone recommend inexpensive, reputable/reliable replacement cables that will support the LS200/A2DC? I don't really like the material of the stock cables or the memory wire they have. I'd much prefer a lightweight cable. Thanks!

    Nice tip! thanks for sharing
    According to your tutorial, I just made that to my 125 too. Very pleased with the result :)


    Looks definitely more sturdy and feeling a bit less anxious now ^^

    I'm looking for a ready made Y-Split bulk cable, to recable my Takstar HF580. I rather it'll have a 3.5mm plug already soldered to it, but it's not a deal breaker - I can solder one myself. Has anyone seen something like this for sale?

    Hi @hakuzen , I'm in the market for a cable for my 64 Audio Quad driver custom IEM. I saw your list but since the 165 is only available with MMCX connectors, can you recommend a cable with 2-pin connectors for recessed sockets?

    cable 125 is very decent, specially if you need to keep resistance low. it uses protruding 2pins plugs.

    sound with 165 impressed me, despite of its resistance.
    @subwoof3r found cables with similar wire (same manufacturer, taiwan, neotech? up-occ) and 2pins for recessed sockets available at a recent shop in ae.. they are 28awg (expect 300mOhm resistance, a bit high for my taste).

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/32999961682.html (no litz version)
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/-/1000007909452.html (litz version, even better probably, darker background) cable 170 (new) in my list (i've just ordered one).

    anyway, you might wait a bit, to see if more cables using that kind of wire and 2pins plugs start to show in ae, or to take advantage of ae coupons during sales.

    Question - does that cable impress You mostly with Moondrop Blessing or with all the other IEMs too (with what You can use it)?
    Why I`m asking, is that I think impedance "match" with IEM impedance could be the case and with some other IEM this cable could not give so good result.
  14. hakuzen
    it impressed me with blessing. blessing impedance is constant (20Ω, dynamic driver) till near 1kHz; ~22Ω at 1kHz; it reaches 27Ω at 2.5kHz and 8kHz; and goes down to 13Ω at 20kHz.
    blessing is not so critical as other iems, like, for example, kz zs5v1 (4.5Ω).
    i'd wish lower cable resistance, of course (the lower, the better), but sound was so clean that i even decided to order a 28awg (thinner) litz version (cable 170).

    tried tenhz p4 pro with 165, and also got impressed.. p4 never sounded so well. will keep testing 165 with other iems.

    the seller of cable 170 had an 8 cores version of silver plated 7n up-occ, no litz, in his shop. but now it isn't available.
    asked the seller for 8 cores version cables which use 28awg litz. he has answered they'll offer them as soon as possible.

    That is a good point.

    I have seen IEMs where the manufacturer specifically states that they include a cable of a certain impedance as part of the tuning.

    I can’t remember an example off the top of my head though.
