Shawline ShawCan headphone cable

Prices from £275.00 (UK RRP)

The Chord Company ShawCan headphone cable is the latest addition to the acclaimed Shawline range.

It features high-quality, silver-plated conductors, PTFE dielectric and a carbon composite shield design that minimises unwanted mechanical noise – an inherent problem with headphone cables.  The conductors are enclosed in a black outer jacket – more than just a braid to tidy the conductors, it is designed to assist acoustic damping.

ShawCan headphone cable uses an adapted version of our unique Super ARAY conductor geometry and offers a marked performance upgrade over conventional cable designs.  Fitted with 6.3mm or 3.5mm mini-jack to a wide variety of connectors to suit most headphones.

ShawCan can be built to suit a balanced headphone output.  Balanced headphone outputs aren’t balanced in the usual sense.  As well as the normal left and right signals, there are left and right negative connections – more like a loudspeaker output. Desktop devices often use a 4 pin XLR output. Portable devices tend to use a 2.5mm 4 pole mini-jack connection.

Standard length: 1.5m, with prices from £275 to £350 depending on plug types. Custom lengths available at £80 (UK RRP) per extra metre.
