11th January 2016 – Kilmarnock – Atlas Cables, the engineering-led cable specialist, has launched its totally new range of high-performance replacement headphone cables – Zeno. Designed to be light, compliant yet durable, Zeno combines Atlas Cables’ unique cable technology with a new range of dedicated solder-free connectivity options called Metik. The result is a replacement cable that can work across a broad range of headphones, delivering a significant audio improvement over the often produced-to-a-price average quality cables supplied with even high-end headphones. Hand-built in Scotland and available now, prices range from £145.00.
With the Zeno headphone cable, Atlas Cables set out to bring its own engineered vision of cable design to the fastest growing category of audio products. Ohno Continuous Cast (OCC) copper conductors 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 headphone connection options, Atlas’ Metik non-solder crimp plugs provide signal consistency from socket to socket. Available in 2.5mm, 3.5mm, 6.3mm and 4-pin XLR mini for the headphone end and 3.5mm, 6.3mm and 4-pin XLR for the amplifier end, Metik plugs provide a direct, airtight metal to metal contact for minimal losses and maximum fidelity. For brand-specific headphone connections, a wealth of options are available – Sennheiser, OPPO, Sure, AKG, Audeze, AudioQuest, HiFiMan, Ultrasone are all catered for and Atlas is able to source the correct connections for the majority of headphones available.
Commenting on the launch of Zeno, Kevin Kelly, Managing Director at Atlas Cables, said, “With the popularity of high-end headphones set to increase and the owners looking to further refine the quality of their purchase, we felt we could add real benefits in increased sound quality and durability. By applying our trusted scientific and engineering process to this new product category, we firmly believe that Zeno gives listeners the opportunity to gain even more from their headphones with the results speaking for themselves.”
