Taipan - custom 8 strand headphone cable - brown

Taipan is a large, fast-moving and highly venomous snake native to Australia. It is also the name of our 8 strand custom headphone cable braided in 8x1 geometry.


This custom headphone cable has been handmade from a high-quality OFC industrial-grade wire in brown enamel sleeve, terminated with high quality connectors of your choice.


This 8 strand cable is the most portable in our line-up – lively, yet transparent, and exceptionally soft, light and flexible. Perfect as a portable cable for earbuds, IEMs and on-ear headphones.


With our cables we aim to achieve three main goals.


True to the source sound with a little bit of smoothness and euphony, to make your listening session a real pleasure.

Our cables are smooth and nice to touch, and that makes them really comfy and minimizes the microphonic effect as well.

Lastly, we make them aesthetically pleasing, with high quality enamel sleeving, and our custom wooden splitters, and high quality connectors.


To achieve the above we use 8 strands of high purity OFC wire conductor designed for telecommunication industry covered with brown enamel sleeve and then braided together in 8x1 geometry.


Cable is braided in a way that doesn't stiffen it up, allowing for maximum listening comfort. On top of that braiding minimizes electromagnetic interference, acting as a shield, plus, it looks awesome.

To make sure our cables also look good we equip them with unique wooden and aluminum splitters that we handcraft ourselves in our workshop from exotic woods or high quality aluminum alloy.

We use following amplifier connectors:
3,5 mm TRS jack with carbon fiber shell
6,3 mm jack – Neutrik
4-pin XLR - Neutrik
Balanced 3,5 mm trrs
Balanced 2,5 mm trrs

And following headphone connectors:
3,5 mm mini-jack
2,5 mm micro-jack
mini XLR
