062 is ok then. you'll perceive 063 slightly brighter than 062/064. anyway, you can remove the curved heatshrink of 063/064 with a cutter, carefully (not to cut the wire)

Okay, i will get 062. I don't want to deal with removing curved heatshrink right now. Thank you for all your help.

I have already bought a few cables based on your recommendations and now ready for the top cable in your list: 175. One question for you, in this link, two 8-wire cables are listed under the options. They look different and the text on the pictures are different- are they the same thing or not?

Also the title of page says gold and silver...

Subject to correction i think the only difference is the sleeve colour of the OCC copper (Ohno Continuous Casting) portion is blue

Thanks! I think you must be right- now I see they have different color options for the pure copper cable.

yes, confirmed. cryo up-occ copper litz wire is available with two different sleeves: transparent (so you see the copper color), and translucent blue (the color changes depending of the light); you can check the new photos i added to the database recently to get an idea of the result color when using the translucent blue sleeve.

Thanks for confirming! They both look great. Any perceivable difference in terms of softness of the two color versions?

Effect Audio VOUGE series

Conductivity :
Based on cable length 1,2 Meters :

Maestro : 169,7... 224,1...194,1...174,2 mOhm
4C 26AWG UP-OCC Copper Litz 2pin 2,5TRRS


Virtuoso : 172,8... 190,3...186,6...243 mOhm
4C 26AWG UP-OCC SPC Litz 2pin 2,5TRRS


Grandioso : 173,5... 161,1...171,7...164,1mOhm
4C 26AWG UP-OCC Silver Copper Hybrid Litz 2pin 2,5TRRS


IMO, at Grandioso, the Silver material used is not SPC, this based on my sound impression, that the cable more on true Silver characteristic... and some how similar like signature like 175, but less wide soundstage and More MidCentric (Vocal still Dominate).

Price is higher, and Grandioso give 4 core only... unfortunately...

Hi guys,
I well received my 175 (4 cores version) ! :)

I decided to change my mind and give a new chance to Electro Acousti store, and I am so happy I did that!
This cable is truely a killer one in both look and sound.
More impressions to come but from the first hours with that I spent, its already my best cable ever and (to me) a better upgrade from 210, (especially in transparency which more sound like the S4 in this area).
I can hear details in some tracks that I never heared before, incredible.
Thank you so much @hakuzen for the recommendation of this cable

Here is some photos (that I took today) to share with you guys :

My only reproach is the black heatshrink coming out from the plug, nothing really annoying anyway but I hoped a transparent like the other parts for the perfect look :

Cheers' :)

nice detailed pics, thanks! i'm very glad you gave another chance to electro acousti, because every people who had any issue with them, have reported their excellent customer support to me, except in your past case.
and glad you enjoy 175 as much as i do. yea, the details in upper-mids and highs are a remarkable difference between ag-au wire and the rest. can't live anymore without that detailed ringing decay.

could you compare cable no 194 vs cable no 175 4 core?
which is better?

and whats the different between AWG 26 or 28 "OCC Headphone Upgrade Line 7N UP-OCC COPPER" cables?
does different AWG gives different in sounds?
that wire was used in cable cable 172 / 179

thank you.
