Does anyone have a USA (or quick ship) source for 2 pin IEM connectors. I tried ebay and they sent me MMCX... not really wanting to try again. Plussound is out of stock...

Which IEM are you trying to replace the cable on?

On a Linum cable, changing from MMCX to 2 Pin. Why does it matter?

It shouldn't matter. 2 conductors is all you really need as long as the gauge isn't too thick or unruly. For the 2 pin connector what IEM are you wanting to hook up? You told me the cable and not the IEM. It's hard for us to tell you a cable if you don't tell us specifically the connectors you need or the IEM.

I’m simply looking for a place I can buy a 2 pin IEM connector I can solder on to wire I already have. I haven’t had any luck finding 2 pin connectors I can buy within the USA...

Seems to me that you should take a photo of what you received and show it to the vendor. They should send a replacement at no charge.

That’s where the not wanting to try again comes into play. I did contact but don’t want to go through shipping from China again. For anyone actually interested Null Audio had stock and was very helpful .

Linum cables are extremely difficult to reterminate. They have 6 tiny threads, each a different colour, and each of those threads is a series of tinier wires. If you unravel the threads you’re in trouble as it’s litz, so impossible to know which is which without tinning. They’re very, very fidgety cables so be careful
Here’s the image they sent me (in this quality, I don’t have a higher resolution image)

Thanks! For the record I had no trouble soldering onto the right angle 2 pin connectors. Also terminated the 3.5 to a 2.5 TRRS. Tested and working great!
