Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.

With advances in cable-making techniques and radical approaches to manufacturing, there are now several solutions to this universal problem. You get Flat cables, Mesh Design cables, cables coated with exterior covers and cables designed with a zipper style design to avoid Tangle and attempt to solve the issue.

Super Lightweight


Sono by Shanling offers a rich audio experience with its meticulous design and advanced features. Crafted from cast zinc alloy, these earphones not only provide durability but also showcase a glossy finish, resembling the elegance of diamond earrings.



Sono incorporates a pair of dynamic drivers in a coaxial design, surrounded by a trio of magnets, enhancing sensitivity and precision in low and midrange frequencies. The lightweight HCCAW voice coil further contributes to greater resolution and expressive sound quality. Additionally, a custom balanced armature driver, tailored to Shanling's high standards, serves as a treble driver, delivering extended highs with intricate details and a smooth profile.



The sound profile of Sono is finely tuned for a delightful listening experience. The balanced nozzle, marked by a black ring, offers a slightly warm tone with a modest bass boost, presenting a natural midrange and smooth treble. Alternatively, the bass nozzle, identified by a red ring, further intensifies the bass for an improved mid-bass kick and extended sub-bass reach, adding a layer of depth and transforming the sound into a full-on-fun mode. The interchangeable design of the nozzles allows users to customize the audio output based on their preferences.



With its intricate metal construction, Sono showcases an exquisite appearance while ensuring robustness. The hand-polished cast zinc alloy contributes to a glossy finish, making these earphones not only sonically impressive but also visually stunning. The ergonomic design guarantees a comfortable fit for extended listening sessions, elevating the overall user experience.



Sono comes with an interchangeable cable design featuring an industry-standard 0.78mm 2-pin connector, providing users with the freedom to choose from various aftermarket cables. The included Hi-Sprade cables, constructed with silver-plated copper in a 4 x 32 configuration, ensure optimal signal transmission and durability. With metal parts and a gold-plated plug, these cables adhere to the established standards of Hi-Fi, offering a high-quality accessory to complement the earphones.

Tini little iem V shaped flavored

IEM is very tiny build quality is above average, cable is on high quality,
Coming to Soud quality it's really V shaped with scooped mid. If you are looking for flat or balanced signature, then this one not for you.
Detail retrieval above average.
Overall a little overpriced for 6K.
