CHORD COMPANY: Their first ever headphone cable!


They tell us.....

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 is a thoroughbred Chord cable and features the company’s unique 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.

Chord has been able to adapt its unique Tuned ARAY conductor geometry to work within a headphone cable. The Tuned ARAY conductor design in ShawCan has allowed Chord to make a cable that carries a musical signal far more coherently than more conventional designs. The benefits of ShawCan aren’t just in terms of detail and dynamics: the really big step forward is the way that Tuned ARAY cables – ShawCan included – make music sound so involving, immersive and believable.

ShawCan is available in a range of terminations to suit most of the leading headphones including: Shure, Audeze, Mr. Speakers and many others. The ShawCan is also available with the industry-standard two-pin connector used on many IEMs where the improvements border on profound.

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.
