You may already have a good pair of replaceable cable headphones, but you're looking for a better listening experience, which is why you're reading this article! Choosing an upgrade cable may be a good and necessary choice. Here are some factors to consider when choosing an upgrade cable:
1. The sound you like, providing you with a different music feast
The material of the upgrade cable is very important. Choosing a high-quality material can improve the sound quality, and choosing the sound you like is also very important. Generally speaking, silver upgrade cables are better than copper ones, but they are also more expensive. But the sound of the two is quite different~ Generally speaking, silver wire is the best at transmitting sound and can fully present the details of the sound, while copper wire sounds warmer and more good at vocal. You can refer to our previous post on headphone upgrade cable materials.
Is the metal material of the connector also important for sound quality, not just the headphone upgrade cable material?
In the previous post, we briefly introduced common plugs and headphone pin. In this post, we will delve into the impact of their materials on sound quality, as well as the production process and material selection. Common materials include brass, phosphor bronze, tellurium copper, and silver, while gold and rhodium are common electroplating materials. OC Studio's plugs and terminals use a non-nickel plating process to provide high-quality sound performance. Additionally, cryogenic treatment is an essential process for high-end audio and Hifi headphone cable, which can improve the physical properties and sound performance of metals. Furthermore, this post will also introduce how to differentiate nickel and non-nickel gold plating terminals by color.
