Hi, I'm quite keen in getting one of these cables.

However, I've a couple of questions which I believe other interested buyers might want to know as well.

  1. Any detailed technical specs for the silver/copper used in these cables ?
  2. What are the different sound characteristics of the various cables (silver/copper/hybrid) ? (We all know the usual sound signature for silver/copper, just would like to find out if yours is any diff/special)
  3. What is the default length of the IEM cable for the prices quoted above ?
  4. Any pics for the Oyaide straight 3.5mm plug ? (Is this the mini version which is compatible with smartphone cases ?)
  5. ETA for the cables upon order confirmation and payment, as well as payment (full deposit) details ? Also delivery or collection details (self-collect or via post, etc.)
  6. Do you provide any warranty for these cables ?
  7. Any plans of releasing a 6 conductor or even 8 conductor (silver/copper/hybrid) IEM cables ?
  8. Lastly, any demo units available for auditioning (if allowed) ?

Wow another nice set of cables. How is the ergonomics like this time? Comparable to lune/westone epic cables?

I'm still using the same type of wire sleevings, so it should be the same as last time.

It is quite flexible and easy to coil up and keep.



Cheers

Bought a silver cable from him. Quality of cable is excellent and is more flexible than it looks. Workmanship is also excellent.

I would highly recommend to my friends. if only they are into this as I am...

Why so many people get copper? Isn't silver brighter in sound?

Dealt with TS yesterday evening for a pure silver IC and at the same time checked out his copper IEM cable.

From what I have seen (and felt), looks and build quality wise, his products are easily as good as if not better than the big boys such as Whiplash and Toxic Cables. It easily leaves Null's cables in the dust.

To be absolutely honest, sound wise, comparing the IC with my cheepo no brand ordinary 3.5mm-3.5mm IC connecting my ODAC with my O2 and listening with my Grado SR-80i, I detected a slight improvement in the treble region. It was slightly clearer.

In the interests of transparency, I'll acknowledge that the sound difference was slight. But bear in mind that it was literally 30 seconds of AB testing and through a pair of headphones that don't really scale all that well.

When my CIEMs come back from reshell, I'll have a proper listening session and if I have the time, I'll post a simple review here. I also look forward to dealing with TS again, as I have the hunch that I'll be getting one of his IEM cables as a spare for my twag v2.

TLDR; friendly seller, excellent product, reasonable price. Thumbs up.

The difference is minimal. Think most people just want well built cables. If your entire chain is high end you can extract that ever so tiny final bit. I still don't buy into the popular opinion of cable burn in which I think is hogwash.

Owned some of the big name cables and found that they only look nicer than DIY stuff. Won't make that mistake again..........or maybe I just have rubbish hearing
