want to replace my headphone cable with one that has 3.5mm

i would like to replace my long stock headphone cable which is 2 x 3.5mm (headphone end)-> 6.35mm (1/4")

I want a shorter cable which ends with a 3.5mm connector so i don't have to use adaptor. when I go to lazada i can see a few sellers probably China sellers and unknown brands like "audiocrast", "leory", "8cores".

Any guidance on reputable sellers I can buy from, whether online or from SG?

To close the loop, I went to Lazada to buy an unknown brand 4.4mm -> 2 x 3.5mm cable (as my Fiio can take both 3.5mm and 4.4mm) for $69 since the stock cable is really bulky and that 1/4" connector super inconvenient. I just hoped the high seller rating meant that I won't get some dud product.

the cable I got didn't exactly match the photo. geometry was correct but 2 of the 4 leads seemed to be silver-plated OFC rather than OFC as shown in the photo. Fortunately my Elear treble is quite smooth so I'm satisfied with the performance so far compared to the stock cable.
