The ultimate feast---Review qualification recruitment for newest PCOCC-A headphone cables
 
20131030105924.jpg

 

Thanks to its consistently high price-performance ratio, FiiO is widely welcomed by users on Head-Fi. Presently, we are not only No.1 in the portable amplifier and portable DAC markets, but also the sales leader in the 192k/24b HD lossless audio player niche market. But apart from this, there is something that you might not be aware of--FiiO is also the only company that arranges for mass production of LO cables and headphone cables. Many types of cables are on sale now, and most of them are made from OYAIDE-branded PCOCC-A cable purchased from Japan Furukawa Electric.

As you may know, Japan Furukawa Electric has announced the end of production for PCOCC-A cable due to the low market demand. With the assistance of our business partner OYAIDE, we were fortunate enough to catch the last bus to get a considerable amount of PCOCC-A cable. Now we have received some of this cable, and the first batch of assembled PCOCC-A LO and headphone cables have gone to market already.

In order to let more customers know about these new cables, we are pleased to hold this reviewer recruitment event, as detailed below:
 
 
1. Involved Models: RC-HD1, RC-UX1 and RC-MH1
 
2. Application Time: Nov 1st, 2013-Nov 10th, 2013
 
3. Review List Announcement :Nov 11th and 12th, 2013
 
4. Review Qualification:
a) Five free reviewers:For those who pass our qualification approval for this category, each reviewer can get one RC-HD1 (or RC-MH1) and one additional RC-UX1 free of charge.
b) Ten reviewers with product at half price: For those who pass our qualification approval for this category, each reviewer may buy one RC-HD1 (or RC-MH1) and optionally one RC-UX1 at half the retail price. The reviewer should have a PayPal account for payment.
c) We would send the parcel by express delivery.
 
5. Review Regulation:
Reviewers should do the review fairly and objectively, and related product photos are required.
Reviewers should not overstate the advantages of the products.
Reviewers should indicate that the review products are free samples, in order to avoid any misunderstandings.
Reviewers do not need to send the review content to us for examination; however, reviewers should be responsible for the authenticity and objectivity of the content, and is obliged to make amendments accordingly in case of any errors due to inadequate understanding of the products.

I'd like to review RC-MH1 with my Philips fidelio X1. It is said that the weakest point of the headphone is it's cable. This should be a great test. I can compare it to a simple and cheap cable. I have a multimeter to check for resistance too.
 
My other headphones are
Sennheiser hd650
Sennheiser hd580
Sennheiser hd518
Alessandro ms-1
Koss Portapro
 
The HD-1 should fit on the hd518 but the headphone isn't high end. I think it's better if you give one of those to a hd558 or hd598 owner.
 
 
I don't have any big reviews out there but I post alot of impressions at local forums and ofcourse I can make a nice and extended review for your cable here at head-fi and our local forums.

I probably won't get a chance, but I'd like to apply for that RC-MH1 cable:)
 
I own M100's, and I'd love to try an alternative cable to the stock cable as there are not much cables available that would fit these brilliant headphones.
 
I've reviewed the C5, if that aides in giving me a chance, haha.

The RC-HD1 looks like it may be compatible with the Ultrasone Signature line.  Can you confirm this as I own the Ultrasone Signature DJ and would have a strong interest in this cable.
 
I also own the M-100 and have been one of the most prolific posters on the M-100 forum.  I would welcome the opportunity to evaluate the RC-MH1.
