Can someone suggest if the following cable gives better listening than the stock cable. I intended to use FiiO Q1 MKII. I'm just interested in upgrading my listening experience with not very expensive cable.
The link of the cable https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B075CHQFW8/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1

probably not, if the cable has the same technology it doesnt change the sound (unless its really bad or something), it might be better material tho.

I also think the Sennheiser stock cable is better than the average stock cable, though I’ve enjoyed the Wireworld cable I got for my HD 800, and I’m considering ordering a fairly short cable from Wireworld for my HD 58X Jubilee/HD 650. I’ve also read great reports about cables from Cardas, but I haven’t tried those myself.

Ive always had a thing for audio technica cables, atleast from the MX line, just thick and they fell good

They’re superb on the AD series as well (at least the AD700 and AD900 that’s a I tried).

Yep, but i forgot how annpying it is if the cable is removable, the locking system is stupid

Ah, and I think the Audio Technica ATH-AD cables aren’t even removable without cutting/soldering.

I bought this same cable, it works but the clear part of the cable is rigid and makes ALOT of cable noise, the connectors fit well but the black section of the cable is janky, and by janky I mean the worst I have ever seen. its been many weeks and it is still not straight I have tried to straighten it with weight and a heatgun I have resleeved the cable to make it better, but it really is crappy. Im currently looking for a better 4pin xlr or 2.5 trss cable.

also, for the q1 mk II the unbalanced output does not produce enough volume, but it sounds pretty great balanced, still somewhat quiet though.

Thank you so much for your very detail sharing. It really helps. I ordered the cable before but now cancelled it. I think I would better wait. If you can find a better 2.5 trss, please let me know.
