Nordost's Heimdall 2 Headphone Cable consists of 32 AWG 7/40 conductors which have been individually insulated and twisted using Litz construction. Litz construction increases the pliability, as well as eliminates triboelectric noise within the cable and improves upon mechanical damping. In order to accommodate the added durability demanded from headphone cables, Nordost has included an Aramid fiber strength member to the construction of this cable. Integrating Aramid fibers into the cable design not only ensures its mechanical integrity, transferring the strain away from the cable's conductors and to the fibers themselves, but the resonating properties of aramid fibers also enhance sound quality.
To take things to the next level, the Heimdall 2 Headphone Cable employs Nordost's proprietary Micro Mono-Filamenttechnology with extruded FEP insulation around the conductors, as well as mechanically tuned lengths, which reduce internal microphony and high-frequency impedance resonance. As a result, the Heimdall 2 Headphone Cable acts as the ideal conduit to transfer an amazingly realistic reproduction of sound from your system to your hifi headphones.
The Heimdall 2 Headphone Cable is available with 3.5mm stereo mini, 2x mini XLR female, 1x mini XLR female, 2x Push-pull or 2x 2 pin connectors on the headphone end (selectable from the menu above), and is terminated with a 4 pin balanced XLR male connector on the source end.Available terminations:
- (2x) mini XLR - Use with Audeze: LCD-3, LCD-2, LCD-XC and Abyss: AB-1266
- (1x) mini XLR - Use with AKG: K812, K712
- (2x) push-pull - Use with Sennheiser: HD 800
- (2x) 2 pin - Use with Sennheiser: HD 650, HD 600
- (1x) 3.5mm stereo mini - Use with Ultrasone: Signature Pro
Each cable is 2 meters long and includes two adaptors which are comprised of identical construction and technology as the headphone cable itself, and have also been cut to specific, mechanically tuned lengths. Both adaptors are terminated with a 4 pin balanced XLR female connector on one end and either a 3.5mm stereo mini or a 1/4in stereo phono on the opposite end. Due to the various terminations available, the Heimdall 2 Headphone Cable is compatible with all major players in the over-ear headphone market.2-meter extension cables are also available from the menu above, in the following configurations:
- 3.5mm stereo mini
- 1/4in (6.3mm) stereo phono
- 4 pin XLR (male)
