I'm not willing to pay like 3-400 or even higher for iem that boutique shop charges.

I heard null audio, sgaudiohive, nocturnal audio has cheaper options.

Also, those shops in AliExpress, which ones are trusted? Ie when they sell pure copper or silver cables, its really copper / silver cables.

Copper is OK...

Silver plated copper also OK

Pure silver is not really possible... Considering the price

For me... Don't spend too much on cables

In Sg, shops like sgaudiohive, null audio, do they let customers test out the cables?

you can try gloryrain, also a new Singapore company, the guy has a carousell listing, you can meet him to try his cable. I got his cheapest cable for less than $70.

Other alternatives are from Taobao, arguably the most value for money in terms of price and specs, but I haven't tried the "expensive", so I can't comment on durability or quality.

I don't really have one vendor that I go to, normally I just browse around and compare the price to specs and just buy from there. For safer choices, you can buy from FiiO and TRN.

I have this one in my bag right now, but using MMCX with my customs. So far so good.

For search term "耳机升级线" is enough, or you can also add "发烧 which means popular or hot.
