Winner of a Hi-Fi+ Award in 2017, the Nordost Heimdall 2 aims to be the highest-quality 4-pin balanced cable for high-end headphones out there. Measuring a comfortable 2 meters long, each cable consists of 32 AWG 7/40 conductors that have been individually insulated and twisted into a Litz construction to increase flexibility, eliminate triboelectric noise within the cable, and improve its mechanical damping. There’s also an Aramid fiber strength member for added durability. The Heimdall 2 employs Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament technology 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, this cable acts as the ideal conduit to transfer an incredibly realistic reproduction of sound from your system to your hi-fi headphones.
Note: At checkout, choose from several different connectors. You’ll have the option to add a 3-pin XLR male adapter (+ $127), a 3-pin XLR female adapter (+ $127), a 2.5mm 4-pole adapter (+ $127), a 3.5mm mini adapter (+ $127), or a 4.4mm 5-pole adapter (+ $170). You can also add a 2-meter extension cable with a 3.5mm stereo mini, 6.3mm stereo phono, or 4-pin XLR male termination (+ $400).
Nordost is the premier manufacturer of hi-fi audio cables and accessories in the consumer electronics industry. In 1991, the company first made a name for itself with its revolutionary, flat audio cables, which used conductor solutions developed from unique technologies originally engineered for the aerospace industry. Since then, Nordost has continually pushed industry boundaries, bringing what were once unattainable goals into fruition. Over the past two decades, Nordost has grown its product line from just one cutting-edge cable to an extensive, all-encompassing range of hi-fi solutions, including audio and video cables, power products, and resonance control devices. Nordost cables bring the pure, unadulterated reality of a live performance to hi-fi sound systems, regardless of the system's price point.
