CanJam at RMAF 2015: Axios Headphone Cables by Kimber
I think the first cables I ever sold were Kimber PBJ 25 years ago. Now, under the brand name Axios, Kimber is braiding up some sexy headphone cables. Nate Allen gave me the run-down on how these new cables harken back to Kimber Kable's roots with their first really successful products: the 8PR and 4PR modelswhich have 16 and 8 conductors respectively. The new Axios brand headphone cables from Kimber start out with an 8PR braid at the amplifier plug end, then transition beautifully to two 4PR strands at the hand-braided Y-junction.
Axios was showing numerous termination options, both in connector type and housing shape and materials. A variety of hardwoods were shown as connector housings that were tastefully matched with the look of the headphones with which they paired. Very, very, nice.
I'm sure these will be pricy when they become available next January, but I've no doubt quite a few weighty-walleted headphone enthusiasts will be tickled-pink with their spectacularly good looks and quality hardware.
