JH Audio IEM Stock Cables for 4 pin Connections
This JH Audio IEM stock cable was developed, made and customized by Moon Audio to fit JH Audio and Astell & Kern IEMs with the 4 pin connection.
Customized options include:
- Attenuator pod
- Amplifier terminations
The JH Audio stock cable is made of silver plated tinsel wire. This is not to be confused with the silver plated copper design in the Black Dragon IEM headphone cable V2.
Redesign of the JH Audio connections & IEM sockets
The cable connections and IEM sockets of the JH Audio 4pin connection style IEMs were redesigned by Moon Audio. The Astell & Kern and JH Audio IEMs with the 4 pin connection style includes the Angie, Angie II, Rosie, Roxanne, Roxanne II, Layla, and Layla II. This 4pin connection socket upgrade has improved the durability of the connections & sockets for long term use & enjoyment.
First, we improved the threaded locking section and the nut as we are now using anodized aluminum for durability and better tolerance. The male and female pins utilize a proprietary metal combination called ARCAP. It is essentially a high yield copper based metal that does not contain iron so it is not magnetic. It also has very high tensile strength and it is resistant to chemical corrosion. This is very important for those of you who will use the cable and IEMs at the gym or on stage if you are in a band as it will be much more durable and resistant to flex failure from constant movement and/or wear & tear.
The pins now are also gold plated and the attenuator pod was improved to provide better tolerances and tracking. The improved markings on the cable help match left to right and the attenuators are now recessed to prevent them from being altered by accident. The pod shape was improved to a smoother shape and this is a new feature of all the overmolds.
In terms of sonic, I haven't noticed any dramatic change but they are very sturdy and look like they gonna last a very long time.
This cable is a clear upgrade from previous version.
