Replacement headphone cables?
« on: May 18, 2018, 02:50:27 PM »
Any recommendations out there for headphone cables?

I'm increasingly getting annoyed at the stock, long as crap cables that came with my Oppo PM-3. The Oppos take standard plugs so not a big issue.

An important consideration... I'm a frugal SOB, so options like Blue Dragon cables from moon-audio, which I'm sure are fantastic, are quite a bit more than I want to spend. Curious if these on Amazon or Lavricables would be reasonable options... I was leaning to stick with copper though.

Other options but skeptical...
- Option 1
- Option 2

Hello djdube525,

My favourite topic - cables!  :)

Doubtful if these are really 6n or 8N cables.

But maybe something like this?  http://www.oyaide.com/ENGLISH/AUDIO/products_category/headphone_earphone_cbl/pg521.html

I see their cables for around $200 and at least you will get what you pay for. https://www.amazon.com/OYAIDE-HPC-35SRH-1-3m-Headphone-cable/dp/B00A71ADP4

PCOCC I think.

I've been itching to get cable upgrades for my Sennheisers but haven't gotten the chance yet.
