AudioQuest Tower 3.5mm to 3.5mm 1m Cable
True to Audioquest design principles yet fantastic value for money, the Audioquest Tower is the ideal first upgrade.
For many years Audioquest has advocated solid-core rather than multi-strand cables. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in conventional cables can cause distortion, giving an unnatural edge to the sound. Using long-grain copper with fewer impurities, the Audioquest Tower gives a cleaner, clearer sound compared to regular cables using oxygen-free high-conductivity copper.
Air-filled foamed polyethylene insulation
Wire insulation can cause an imperfect signal by absorbing energy and then releasing it as distortion. The Tower uses air-filled foamed-polyethylene, as air absorbs next to no energy and polyethylene is low-loss with a benign distortion profile. The result is reduced distortion for an even purer sound.
Cold-welded, gold-plated plugs
By using a high pressure weld rather than solder, there's less chance of a faulty connection between cable and plug. This gives a more reliable connection in the long term and ensures low resistance and, hence, low distortion connection for the entire life of the cable.
Purpose designed for single-ended applications, Asymmetrical Double-Balanced Geometry offers a relatively lower impedance on the ground for a richer, and more dynamic experience.
While many single-ended cable designs use a single path for both the ground and the shield, Double-Balanced designs separate the two for cleaner, quieter performance.
