has anyone bought the Satge Diver SD3 from this website http://www.otojoyiem.com/ ?
 
I know Alo Audio sells them but I would like to try a different route!

Hi guys, anyone know if the Cosmic Ears cables will fit the SD2? I would like to buy a pair to keep as a spare just in case (I got a tendency on breaking earphone cables) but I would like to make sure that the plugs are the same. Thanks

They do fit, however the angle of the plugs may be too sharp for the cable to clear your ears.

Thanks, is the angle pointing backwards am assuming? There is plenty of space there i think! I am just a bit worried from all the stories about cable oxidisation.

I'll try to show you what i mean.
 
The objects shown are the plugs used by Cosmic Ears scaled to size.
 
The RED object is where the plug will go if you use those kind of plugs with the SD-2:s. The GREEN object is placed at a more optimal position for an angled plug, which is a more common with CIEM:s.

FiiO does make a replacement cable with slightly kinked plugs for IEM:s using the normal 2pin style in a recessed socket (i.e Westone plugs). Looks like something that might just work with the SD:s.

Thanks stumbled upon those cables as well :) They look pretty decent and I have found a UK dealer that sells them. Worth a go I guess.

I would still recommend a cable using straight plugs. You could try the Heir Audio Magnus 1 if your wallet allows for the bump in price.

Or you could try any cable with straight connectors from here:
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR3.TRC2.A0.H0.Xwestone+4r+cable&_nkw=westone+4r+cable&_sacat=0&_from=R40
 
(yes, it does say Westone 4R. They use the same kind of connectors so you'll be fine.)

I was trying to skip importing from the states but some of those cables look fantastic :) Maybe a small birthday gift from Ted's ? :D 
 
Skalkman how long have you had them for? Are you planning on changing your cable soon? And excuse the ignorance but what's the player?

Thanks, I am seriously considering an X5 as the SQ from my iP5 leaves a heck of a lot to be desired. It is day and night between it and my MBA and Retina Mini!
