I wonder does the Kimble Kable compatible with Andromeda
Doubt so, those cable by Sony are for Sony own earpiece/headphones.
Other headset, maybe have to either do custom cable or
ask Kimble Kable whether they do or not.

Clarification: I mean I didn't hear any differences in burning in but then again I'm still at 80 hours. Only listen it during my travelling time and some free time at night. Should be able to exceed 200 hours by the time my 4.4mm cable is ready. Then the whole process will start again lol.

Should be. Since it is standard MMCX. And shall some people using it on their iems with MMCX connectors.

What DAP did you come from anyway? Even with my therium silver single ended cable I could hear the differences in sound stage and low-end with my K10s, I came from ZX2 with Mojo and PHA2/3.

Yup and it costs much cheaper in malaysia so I bought the cable from there. Lucky I bought it earlier cause theres a backlog now

I ordered from jaben my
Hope they deliver soon

Wow 110. Im only at 60 - 80 with my K10s. You can try the setting at high gain in the settings menu.

Think you need to try another earphone with it. Should be something wrong with either the player or earphone. Running at range of 60s with gain setting on low.

3.5 or 4.4mm jack?
Have you enable the high gain?
It's typical that near max on the 3.5mm in order for some
earpiece to work.

4.4mm jack no such issue but my test is done with the Sony MDR-Z1R.
You can try send back Sony and see what they say.

Yep enabled high gain.
Think with high gain its like 10 additional steps from normal gain

Probably Sony have to come out with a firmware in
improve the power handling.
