The Reference 8 IEM Cable is a true high fidelity earphone cable.


Four high purity silver-plated copper (SXC) conductors combined with four OCC copper conductors in FEP jackets deliver full-bodied musicality and fine inner detail to recordings.


It also has the fun and “easy to listen to” sound signature of all of our ALO Audio cables.


The terminations are subtly marked to indicate Right (Red) or Left (Blue) making it easy to use in on-the-go applications.


The signature cable geometry combined with the durable FEP jacket work together to keep microphonics to a minimum while still delivering great sound quality.


The FEP jacket will also keep the conductors safe from oxidation that is commonly found in many earphone cables.


While oxidation doesn’t negatively affect the sonic quality of the cable, keeping it out ensures your cable will stay looking great for years.

    This cable is terrible! Sure, the Solaris sounds even more awesome running balanced, so I’ll tack on an extra star for that. But why on Earth would you make a premium cable with stiff, uncomfortable, microphonic wire instead of soft, comfortable, non-microphonic wire like you used with the stock Solaris cable? Why make the customer suffer for better quality sound? What were you thinking?

    Не стоит своих денег. Да звучание луще чем у стокового Litz который идет в комплекте с многими наушниками ,особенно на высоких частотах. Но данное замечание касается только арматурных наушников и только от CA с малым сопротивлением и высокой чувствительностью! Качество удобство проводника за 300 баксов выглядит сомнительным , провод очень жесткий тонкий , за год отломалась направляющая дужка на правой заушине. Имеется так же микрофонный эффект , благо на морозе ведет себя хорошо. Когда подключаешь его к более мощным наушникам от других производителей чувствуется сжатый частотный диапазон и падение громкости ? амплитуды. В общем для кастома кабель очень слабоватый , когда за такую сумму уже можно купить трехжильный с золотом.

    The cable sounds decent enough, somewhat more articulate than the stock cable, but here’s the rub = first, there is no sliding collar to prevent the IEMs from tangling, and second, this cable tangles so quickly and so often that I spent as much time untangling the ends as I did listening to it.

  4. Jeremy

    This cable is an excellent upgrade. The sound improvement is substantial. Not only is there a significant increase in detail, but the soundstage is wider and deeper than with the stock cable. Bass is noticeably deeper and smooth and the highs are slightly sharper without compromising the balance. There is the potential for a little microphonics, but it is extremely slight, especially compared to the SXC. The cable does not tangle easily and feels sturdy and robust without being too stiff or unruly. All in all, it’s a perfect complement to a good DAP and the Andromeda 2020’s.
