The Audeze Balanced 4-Pin Cable is designed in-house with high-quality materials and is as thoroughly tested as all their products. The 8.2 ft (2.5 m) flat-ribbon cable (ADZ6B4) is constructed of audio grade, oxygen-free high-quality copper (OFHC). It’s actually a high-conductivity copper alloy electrolytically refined in an oxygen-free environment that reduces oxygen levels to below .001%.
For accurate bass and low impedance Audeze uses 20-gauge wire constructed of 140 flexible strands for extra durability. And to ensure great sound and reliability, your 4-pin cable is terminated with gold-plated, pro-grade connectors; one 4-pin male XLR and two 4-pin female mini-XLRs.
Four contact points instead of two doubles the contact area and cuts resistance in half for a higher current capacity and more dynamic sound. The locking 4-pin construction also ensures your headphones will continue to work even if one pin were to fail.
The 4-pin cable’s sturdy but flexible and soft outer jacket eliminates microphonics: you’ll hear nothing when you touch the cable. Gold-plated contacts keep contact resistance low and avoid oxidization.
Audeze even designed a longer molded y-splitter (where the cable branches off to each ear). Tangle-free comfort makes for enjoyable listening sessions.
