Looking for rather specific IEM cable

I'm looking for this cable but with a straight 3.5mm TRS connector instead of the 90deg angled one.
So, specifically a good quality, white, 8 braid, 1.25m long, 3.5mm TRS, 0.78mm 2 pin of the style shown in the link. >€50
I can find plenty with those straight 0.78mm 2 pin connectors, but I like the angled ones on the IEM side and the straight 3.5mm on the amp side.

It has to match aesthetically with my Moondrup Blessing 2 Dusk. :D

Almost!
I'm afraid the partially covered pins will not allow for a deep enough insertion into the contact holes of the Dusk. The holes lay a bit recessed.
That's why I'm looking for this style of connector at the IEM end:

I'm contemplating about searching for those 0.78mm 2pin connectors to build my own cables.
Not sure if the pins on these stick out long enough. These are for non-recessed contacts.

I'm pretty confident the pins will stick out enough but I understand not wanting to risk it. Oh great, yeh if you're happy doing that that's what I'd do. I can recommend these connectors as they are good quality and they fit the dusk fine, used them to make my own cable for the dusk too =]. You can make your own cable or if you're feeling lazy, just re-terminate an existing one. Or you could just re-terminate the end of the one you posted previously with a straight 3.5mm connector

edit - just noticed they also have them at the store you previously mentioned if you prefer to order from there

Thanks! Those connectors are exactly what I was looking for. Good to know you used them on your Dusk with success.

There are some issues with the stock cable that comes with the B2(Dusk). I think it's too thin, the splitter is annoying, there's no chin slider, it's still a little stiff (it's not too bad, but I have better cheap cables) and the 3.5mm connector is flimsy and not straight.

No problem. Yeh it's not the best, there are better and worse stock cables I feel and I agree I'm not a huge fan of the right angled 3.5mm. I mainly made my own cable because I find it enjoyable (ok the braiding can get a bit tiresome!) and I like the look =].

You can get braided cable. So that's part of the less enjoyable part solved. At least up to the Y-splitter. :)

I also bought an aftermarket cable for my Dusks because of the too stiff stock one. After some research I ended up with the "KBear Rhyme 8 core", with which I'm pretty happy. Nice and soft cable, decent connectors (which fit perfectly on the IEMs) and a reasonable price. KBear also has some silver cables, this one for example
Second choice would have been the Yinyoo 8 core.

Those are nice looking cables.
I have this TRN cable now, but I find that the 2pin connectors are sticking out too much. And for an IEM the 16 braid is maybe a bit too thick.
It is a little stiffer than the 8 braid I got for my HD6XX, but still it's far from a bad cable.
...or I'm just looking for excuses to build my own cable now ...:p
