Upgrading a headphone cable (as many audiophiles and headphone enthusiasts call a "recable") can make a notable difference in sound quality and improve the listening experience. In many cases this is because typical stock headphone wires (even on audiophile headphones) use thin gauge enameled low quality copper in cheap PVC dielectric. Replacing this low cost wire with a high quality cable can create a clean, high bandwidth link between your amplifier and your headphones.
The Ballista:The Ballista offers a flexible quad of wires, each featuring seven strands of electrically isolated 99.99997% pure ohno continuous cast large crystal copper wire (UP-OCC). If you look closely you'll note that the strands alternate between pure copper and silver clad copper, delivering the best of both worlds. Each strand is air-tight, isolated using a unique coating. Everything is transparent so you see exactly what is delivering the sound to your ears. This unique wire is custom-made for Zynsonix Audio, you won't find it anywhere else. Featuring an optimal strand count that delivers exquisite detail and neutrality, it's perfect for headphones, home audio and portable cables.
