    The noise problems come mainly from interactions between certain specific pedals; using a power supply with isolated outlets can help. The cables themselves have almost nothing to do with it. There are no "better" or filtered cables to buy. There is an adapter gadget you can buy from Godlyke that isolates just one outlet; so you might look for that option.

    Try your pedal chain with just the regular power daisy chain first. If you get noise, experiment with powering each of the pedals on its own separate wall wart, or with a battery, to find out which pedals are interacting to create noise.

    Then you can choose whether to buy one of those Godlyke isolating devices, or a PSU with multiple isolated outlets, or just power one of the pedals on its own wall wart, etc.
