AudioQuest believes good cable design is all about damage control. In AQ's view, the perfect cable would be one that adds nothing — no noise, no distortion — to the original signal. Even AudioQuest's affordable Evergreen cables embody this philosophy. They bring together some of AQ's most advanced designs and materials, for excellent sound quality from a cable that's relatively thin and lightweight.

Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors

One of the most important materials that goes into an audio cable is the metal used for its conductors — the parts of the cable that actually carry the signal. Unlike lesser cables, AudioQuest's Evergreen features conductors made from solid Long-Grain Copper rather than stranded metal, for improved performance and better transparency.

Advanced cable geometry

While many cables use a single path for both the ground and shield, AudioQuest uses a design they call "double-balanced asymmetrical geometry." This design separates the ground and shield paths for clean, quiet performance.

Cold-welded, gold-plated connectors

All the details of the cable's construction are well thought-out. For instance, the Evergreen's connectors are cold-welded, rather than soldered, which eliminates a common source of distortion found in many other audio cables.

This cable is equipped with a stereo mini (3.5mm) connector at one end and dual RCAs at the other. Stereo RCA and mini-to-mini versions are also available.

Product Highlights:

  • length: 8 meters/26.3 feet
  • stereo cable with a male miniplug (3.5mm) connector at one end, and dual RCA connectors at the other
  • solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors help improve performance
  • foamed polyethylene insulation for low distortion
  • metal-layer NDS (Noise Dissipation System) shields against RF interference
  • double-balanced asymmetrical cable geometry separates the ground and shield for quieter performance
  • green and black striped PVC jacket
  • cold-welded, gold-plated connectors feature a solder-less design for lower distortion
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

AudioQuest Evergreen

Written by: Ronald Hartman from Ste. Anne Illinois on February 6, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As a past customer of CRUTCHFIELD, I place total confidence in their technical and product advise. The recent product advise concerning a TASCAM CD recorder and the technical advise were top drawer. I like to do business with people such as these, and I most assuredly will continue. They know what they are doing. Ronald Hartman

Pros: Give them a try, they are really pro`s in their field.


Connectivity & Conductivity in Tandem

Written by: Steve from Oregon on December 28, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used this cable to connect a stack comprised of an AudioQuest Jitterbug USB filter & Dragonfly DAC from the USB output of a MacMini. Works as advertised, sound is rich & full spectrum.

Pros: Low noise, high conductivity are primary in this audio connectivity solution for today's evolving musical options & capabilities.

Cons: None. I continue to be impressed by AudioQuest's products.

Good Quality

The employee who told me what to get was correct. It looks to be of high quality wire, solidly put together with connectors. Works great!



Peace of mind

Written by: Rick from Utah on October 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These work, as well as my 5 dollar ones, but I needed 16 feet so here we are, does my compressed music sound better on my reciever with these? Not that i've noticed. But I do have the peace of mind knowing this cable isn't the reason my music sounds like garbage.

Pros: Really cool packaging.

Cons: Price.

Great sound!

Written by: boatbob from Connecticut on June 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great have my iPod plugged into my home stereo, wonderful sound!

Pros: Tight, solid connections.


Nice Sheathing!

Written by: 416rm from Seattle, WA on April 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The sheathing is really nice. I'm sure it disapates unwanted RF signals as well as a tin foil hat! The audio signal was able to get from point A to point B without any audio issues that I can detect. The green and black color combination is nice.

Pros: Nice looking cable. I was able to hear the source material without anything unwanted irritating me.

Cons: The plastic around the connectors could have been better texturally. I'm not partial to smooth shiny plastic. There maybe an esoteric acoustic reason for this.

Good Cable

Written by: DB from South Jersey on March 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Solid RCA-to-3.5mm cable. Using this with an Airport Express to stream. Tight connections at both ends. Excellent build quality. A bit pricey for what you get, but Crutchfield still had the best price.



Very satisfied...

Written by: jmg from Charlotte, NC on March 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I don't have anything to compare it to, but my experience with the product is very positive. Had bought the AudioQuest Dragonfly 1.2 (from Crutchfield, of course) for my laptop and was using it only with headphones. I wanted to play it through my stereo and use this cable to do so. Very satisfied. The sound is clear and I have no hesitation in recommending this product.

Pros: Listening to music from my laptop to the stereo.

Cons: none

This audio cable is amazing. Superior sound quality, offering great low end bass and great high end treble. Connections are high quality, and secure. I am using this cable to connect my iPhone and iPad to my home audio receiver. So I can play my entire music library through my speakers. Again, this cable is worth the price and then some!

Pros: Superior sound quality, great solid connections, and offered in several colors.

Cons: Haven't experienced any.

Great Set Of Cables

Written by: chrx from SF Bay Area on January 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great set of cables for hooking my iPhone to old radios, computer speakers, home stereo, etc. Tight, excellent-fitting connectors on both ends and heavy-duty cable in between. High quality build overall and excellent sound. I now have these in .6, 1, 2 and 3 meter lengths and all are excellent. Fabric on all, except the .6 length. Very satisfied!

Pros: Solidly built, excellent fit, nice sound quality - high quality overall.

Cons: None I can find.

Good build quality

No surprises here, same great quality you always get from Audioquest. There naming system for different grade cables although unique, is to much work for GOOD, BETTER, BEST.

Pros: Great quality.

Cons: Pricey for their lowest grade.

Amazing difference

Written by: AtlantaJim from Atlanta, GA on January 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't believe the difference these make. I purchased the AudioQuest Dragon Fly, which sounded pretty good with some old, cheap cables I had-- you know, the ones that come standard with every piece of equipment? I wanted something that was affordable, but would make a difference. The short story: these are it!

Pros: Affordable; good quality; attractive

Cons: None

Outstanding deal!

Written by: Sumatrayukon from Phx on September 9, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This isn't one of those knock off items that is sold by slapping a name associated with quality on it. This is true audioquest quality at a portion of high end pricing. Using with my Audioengine setup, I'm very pleased by the performance, and of course, crutchfield's outstanding service and quick shipping.



Hands-on research

What's in the box?

  • 8-Meter stereo minijack-to-RCA audio cable (with a male stereo 3.5mm connector on one end and a pair of stereo RCA male audio jacks on other end)

Product Research


Evergreen Series Stereo Audio Minijack-to-RCA Cable: The AudioQuest Evergreen stereo audio minijack-to-RCA cable is terminated by a gold-plated male 3.5mm stereo connector on one end and a pair of gold-plated stereo RCA male connectors on other end. The AudioQuest Evergreen stereo audio minijack-to-RCA cable is available in the following lengths.

  • 0.6 meter (2')
  • 1 meter (3' 4")
  • 2 meter (6' 7")
  • 3 meter (10')
  • 5 meter (16' 5")
  • 8 meter (26' 3")
  • 12 meter (39' 5")

Solid Long-Grain Copper Conductors (LGC): Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. Evergreen's solid Long-Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding "loss" without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.

Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation: Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Evergreen uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on both conductors because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed-PE, it causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.

Metal-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS): 100% shield coverage is easy; preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System. Noise-Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.

Double-Balanced Asymmetrical Geometry: Purposely designed for single-ended applications, Double-Balanced Asymmetrical Geometry offers a relatively lower impedance on the ground for a richer, and more dynamic experience. While many single-ended cable designs use a single path for both the ground and the shield, Double-Balanced designs separate the two for cleaner, quieter performance.

Cold-Welded, Gold-Plated Plugs: This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion.
