12th September 2016 – Kilmarnock – Atlas Cables, the engineering-led cable specialist, has added to its range of Zeno high-performance replacement headphone cables with the launch of the Zeno IEM – a light and compliant yet durable upgrade cable for those who demand the best performance from their in-ear monitors. Zeno IEM combines Atlas Cables’ unique cable technology with its latest range of dedicated solder-free connectivity options called Metik, delivering a significant audio improvement over the often produced-to-a-price average quality cables supplied with even high-end IEMs.
Hand-built in Scotland and available now, prices range from £145.00. Compatible IEMs from launch include Sure, Beyer Dynamic, Fit Ear and Ultrazone, with many more available upon request.
As with its Zeno over-ear equivalent, Atlas Cables set out to bring its own engineered vision of cable design to the fastest growing category of audio products. Zeno IEM features Ohno Continuous Cast (OCC) copper conductors, which are covered in FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene) low temperature deposition dielectric to protect the integrity of the OCC material. Wrapped within a protective soft PVC inner liner and finished with a tangle-free fabric outer jacket, Zeno is extremely durable and ideal for any level of usage.
Developed specifically for Zeno and covering a wealth of connection options, Atlas’ Metik non-solder crimp plugs provide signal consistency from socket to socket. Available in 3.5mm, 6.3mm and 4-pin XLR for the source end, Metik plugs provide a direct, airtight metal to metal contact for minimal losses and maximum fidelity.
Commenting on the launch of the Zeno IEM, Kevin Kelly, Managing Director at Atlas Cables, said, “With the launch of the original Zeno, we realised just how passionate users were as they sought to gain the best possible performance when using headphones. IEM users are no different. The development of this new cable comes about from demand as they set out to further refine the quality of their personal audio systems. The increase in sound quality and durability makes the Zeno IEM the perfect upgrade for those looking to retrieve the very best from their music – both at home and when on the move.”
