Cardas Audio Clear Headphone Cable


Cardas Audio Clear Headphone Cable

Performance cable for your headphones. 

We took the Clear speaker cable and scaled it down to work for only the best headphones on the planet. This is a dual mono run (two completely isolated cables for left and right) just like a pair of speaker cables. Perfect for balanced or single ended operation. Completely neutral, detailed, with lifelike dynamics. This cable helps you to forget about the headphones and get lost in the music. 

Around 2009, George Cardas was working on an IEM cable when he had a great idea for an over-ear headphone cable. The IEM cable was put on hold (a larger form of which would eventually become Clear Light Headphone), and all energies were focused on Clear Headphone. 

The original prototypes looked quite different than the final product. The conductors were tape wrapped, and run through a clear PVC tube. Just a few feet of it existed, so it had to be carefully taken care of during testing, which included many different termination configurations. That one cable was finished, disassembled and re-assembled many times over. 

When testing was complete, we realized we had a spectacular headphone cable deserving of a spot at the top of our product line. Tight bass, smooth midrange characteristic of Cardas, spectacular high end extension and holographic imaging. A/B comparing Clear Headphone with a stock cable can be a jaw dropping experience. 

For production, the clear PVC tube was replaced with soft, flexible TPR rubber, over which a black & white chevron pattern braid is applied. The two cables are held together with aluminum hardware, anodized black and laser-engraved with the Cardas Nautilus logo. A machined Delron joiner can be slid up or down to adjust for various sizes of headphones and heads.
