Oyaide HPC-X35 2.5m Headphone Cable (3.5mm to Mini XLR)
With the advent of iPod, the field where we can enjoy listening to music is expanded infinitely. Due to its convenience and portability, those portable music players are regarded as the new generation of the music player not only by end users but audiophiles.
Nowadays, due to the fact that "cable detachable headphones" are put into this market, increasing numbers of users are trying to improve sound quality by changing headphone cables.
Furthermore, as a new movement, the portable headphone amp is appeared on the scene and became very popular in some countries including Japan. By development of audio accessories, sound quality of portable audio player has also been developed. And something that connects them is strongly demanded. Producing the cables specialized for headphones are a challenging task. As a result, Oyaide has achieved to produce "HPC series" which enhance sound quality of your music player and satisfy you anywhere with it.
For the cable of the HPC-series, we employed the newly-produced HPC-22W cable which has the ultrafine PCOCC-A conductors (80μ for a unit) for its high transmission property and usability.
Rather than twisting whole wires, twenty 0.08mm wires are unified in a unit and the three units are grouped as a conductor which is geometrically-stable. Herewith, it insures uniformity of wire structure, infilling of internal space and preventing deformation among the wires.
A headphone cable must be flexible, and heavy-duty. In order to enhance cable flexibility, the parallel-layout signal lines keep even pitch by internal cotton fiber which includes air chamber. It holds down electrical permittivity and improves mechanical strength.
PCOCC copper is a material that includes very few impurities and insures very low levels of signal disturbance. Because of its low incidence of grain boundaries, the signal passes without impediment or distortion. Heating and cooling the PCOCC wire under controlled circumstances yields a densely re-crystallized, highly pure structure called a μ conductor. The resulting product with a mirror finish applied is called PCOCC-A copper. This highly advanced product is made possible by the combined application of high technology and traditional Japanese craftsmanship.
