AudioQuest designed their King Cobra analog audio cables to transfer signals with almost no noise or signal loss. Each cable features three solid copper conductors to virtually eliminate electrical and magnetic interference that can add brittleness to the sound. The extremely pure grade of copper used in the conductors minimizes harshness and distortion, delivering a signal with exceptional clarity.
Each conductor has its own insulating air tube, which prevents information smearing better than foam insulation. An additional layer of shielding negates almost all electronic noise, for the cleanest signal possible.
King Cobra cables feature XLR connectors made of silver-plated copper. The connectors are fastened by cold welding a process that uses high pressure and silver paste to minimize signal loss. By contrast, solder tends to impede the signal, and the heating of the copper conductor during soldering can negatively affect its performance.
