8 Conductors of Awesome Sound

ALOaudio’s SXC8 redesigned for IEMs.

Silver-plated high purity copper wire is at the heart of the eight fine-stranded 22 AWG conductors. Each conductor is custom annealed to an extra soft temper.

The SXC 8 IEM cable comes jacketed in durable FEP for exceptional resistance to discoloration. The FEP jacket produces a cable with a supple feel, unlike other silver plated or even pure silver cables.

Each cable features our reference type 8 wire weave – a stereo symmetrical design with opposing currents. This weave design lends itself to a more open sonic signature and delivers the perfect blend of detail and clarity.

    Using with a Solaris 2020; clear upgrade in sound vs the super smoky Litz, particularly around punchier sub-bass with more rumble, as well as crisper, clearer treble. Mids seem like a wash to me. Cable is a bit microphonic when not listening to music (no sound I notice when music is playing), and ergonomics take a bit getting used to since it’s so thick. But overall an excellent upgrade and great value.

    I bought this for my Solaris 2020s, which I’ve had for a year, and have hundreds of hours of use. Overall I agree with the above review, especially when it comes to the bass, obvious improvement in the depth and punch. This is the first time I’ve bought a cable upgrade for headphones (as I always assumed the difference would be minimal, if even noticeable) and I was really surprised. The difference in sound was obvious. Overall for me the most noticeable change was in the sound stage. The SXC 8 made it wider and added depth. Overall a purchase I would make again in a heartbeat.

    Great sound with Solaris 2020, more details better bass. The trade off is weight and stiffness. I took out the memory wire, and made a paracord slider to keep the left and right cables closer to my neck. Otherwise, the Solaris would not stay in my ears.
    I have other IEM’s for portable listening, so using the SXC 8 for serious listening, aka sitting still, is okay for me.

    It’s expensive, heavy, thick, and stiff. I pulled the memory wire out right away, then added a paracord slider. I did these two mods because my Solaris 2020 would not stay in my ears. The slider keeps the cable from turning away from behind my ears. Removing the memory wire allows the cable to lay over my ears.
    I was a little disappointed in the Solaris 2020, before getting the SXC 8 cable. The SXC 8 has more detail and clarity, soundstage and instrument separation is also improved.
