For the first time in over 30 years, The Chord Company has applied its cable-building expertise to a headphone cable. The new ShawCan, which will make its debut at October’s headroom show features the company’s Tuned ARAY conductor technology.
The Chord Company’s ShawCan features high-quality silver-plated conductors with PTFE insulation. The shield is a composite design that doesn’t just shield but helps to minimise unwanted mechanical noise — an inherent problem with headphone cables. The conductors are enclosed in a black outer jacket that is more than just a braid to tidy the conductors: the jacket is actually designed to further reduce mechanical noise.
ShawCan is available in a range of terminations to suit most of the leading headphones including: Shure, Audeze, Mr Speakers Ether and many others. The ShawCan is also available with the industry-standard 2-pin connector used on many IEMs .
The standard ShawCan is 1.5m long and the silver-plated minijack version retails at £275. Custom lengths and other terminations are available to order. ShawCan will be available October/November
