Abyss AB1266 Upgrade Replacement cable
The Leo headphone cable is a neutral, very natural sounding headphone cable which is great for vocal performances.
It is a good fit if you want to enhance dynamics and clarity in your headphones and do not want to add coloration. Furthermore, if you do not want to tip the headphone forward or back, then the Leo Cable a wonderful choice.
Most stock headphone cables are made of poor, ultra-thin conductors that work as a bottleneck for sound. Poor geometries, no shielding, rubber jackets, and a whole host of other issues in OEM cables can limit the performance of the headphone driver in terms of clarity and definition.
Leo Cables are handcrafted from quality materials in Headgear Audio. All of our cables are created with ultra-pure, single-crystal silver and copper strands and engineered to provide the cleanest, most musical presentation. Our wire is void of impurities and crystalline boundaries, leaving nothing between you and your music.
The Leo Cable is our value full size headphone cable. Using Ultra Pure copper strands, it combines the neutrality of the Litsa Copper with the clarity of the Lisa silver at a lower price point. The Leo Cable is a good fit for improving dynamics without adding coloration. Its calm and neutral sound make it a great place to start with premium cables.
The Leo Headphone Cable has been designed to match the Litsa silver Cable but with a high purity copper conductor using the Oxygen free Casting Process. The Leo Cable uses OFC pure copper. It is also the best bang for the buck custom headphone cable on the market today.
Each conductor of the Leo Cable is made up of a special varying size stranding geometry. The copper stranding is mixed with Kevlar stranding to reinforce the conductor. This makes it stronger overall and less prone to failure due to the harsh constant flexing a headphone cable receives.
The ¼-inch / 6.3mm stereo connector offers the audiophile-standard plug for connection to devices such as headphone amplifiers and A/V receivers, digital audio players, computer-based workstations, analog gear, and more. A balanced, 4.4mm connector opens a pathway to a newer generation of balanced output devices (headphone amplifiers, digital audio players, etc.) that embrace this compact plug’s superior stability over time. A balanced headphone setup offers an even lower noise floor with great dynamic range when connected to balanced source/amp circuit outputs. The listener will thus experience a wider soundstage, tightly controlled transients and impossibly-clear instrument separation.
2.5mm Balanced, XLR and a whole host of others. We custom build these in house to your connection specifications. The cable can be used in either a single-ended or balanced design. We use Original Neutrik gold plated connectors which fulfills the highest functional and reliability requirements. Today Neutrik is the world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing of audio, coaxial, power and circular connectors. The wire is soldered to a connector using high-quality Cardas silver solder.
