About the AudioQuest Evergreen

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.

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 stereo mini (3.5mm) connectors at each end. Stereo RCA and mini-to-RCA versions are also available.

AudioQuest Evergreen

Crutchfield customer from Scottsdale, AZ on 4/16/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This cable for MP3 players did give a fuller, wider sound field when compared to my generic cable. It is used to connect an iPhone to my Cambridge Audio integrated amp.The difference was more noticeable after about ten hours of usage.

Pros: Brings out more "richness" to classical music

Cons:

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Noticed an improvement over the belkin cable. Seems very well built and with quality material. 4 stars because I think it's overpriced, and those costing more than this is just ridiculous. Just like hdmi cables costing hundreds when monoprice sells them for $5 with a difference that can't be seen or heard to those 10x the price.

I currently use this cable to connect my Android's 3.5mm audio out to my Alpine head unit Aux. Input. This cable is very well-made! No noise, bright signal. Excellent product!

Pros: High Quality! Connectors each have a good positive "click", nice snug fit! Each connector has "flow" arrows on it's backshell; signifying the cable's most efficient flow direction ( Q flow ).

Cons: None

I use these cables to burn in my speakers from my portable radio/Mp3 player. I don't like keeping my iMac on all night and day to burn in audio gear. The audio quest forest did a perfect job. Excellent shielding. Great quality. The sound is a dynamic, smooth copper tone.

Pros: shielded, great sound, excellent quality.

Cons:

Extremely well made, but...

Edwin from Durham, NC on 3/4/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Extremely well made. However, the marketing hype about "the direction of the signal" is not backed up my any rigorous lab tests that I could find. Listening tests are notorously inaccuate. There is probably a big price premium for this "feature" of dubious value.

Pros: Well made and sturdy

Cons: Probably pay a big price premium for a "feature" of dubious value

A.Q. Evergreen I.C.'s Exemplify now Audio standards

Lee from Big Flats, New York on 7/30/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The A.Q. Evergreen interconnects are, I do believe examples of the oft and correctly used Buzz statement "This is the Golden Era of Audio. I like many long time music and equipment lovers always enjoy finding pieces of the chain that are of this undeniable grand behavior!

Pros: "Usable conductivity" is a phrase I use to Identify the best traits of music transmission by that I mean looking at function and form of the design and these Evergreen i.c.'s are ! st class for their ability to transport me to understanding the recordings while not confusing otherwise superior recordings by overemphasizing wrong information . Value-I wont insult you. Usability- I find them working wonderfully well on both Tubed and Solidstate systems. They just let you hear what is.

Cons: None. They certainly suit my needs and wishes.

Getting used to its stiffness, but it sounds wonderful

Headphone nirvana achieved from Jacksonville, FL on 9/30/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Recently bought a pair of Sony Bluetooth/noise cancelling headphones with a detachable 1/8" cord. Thought the cord had developed a short prematurely, so bought this cable to replace it. Turns out that cord wasn't the one with the short, but who cares. Better sound, PHENOMENAL sound, when using with my iPod at work. I'll attribute part to the Audioquest cable and part to the noise-reduction which negates call center noise all around me.

Pros: Great, if not-so-pretty, match-up to my Sony headphones. WONDERFUL sound. Plugs have a definite firm contact when plugged in. Nice, very thick, jacket over the cable.

Cons: The stiffness of the cable takes some getting used to. Only a very minor con. Not sure I want to be bending it very much.

It is an easy and inexpensive upgrade. Replaces your skinny generic wire with an authentic audiophile mini cable. A "no brainier".

Usaba un cable común y decidí comprar algo mejor y créanme la diferencia es del cielo a la tierra. La musica se escucha mucho mas clara y se siente con más potencia. Definitivamente Audio Quest son unos de los mejores más que Moster Cable créanme. I was using a regular cable and decided on buying something better and believe the difference is astounding. I hear the music with more clarity and power. Audioquest is definitely one of the best, better than Monster cables believe me.

Pros: Calidad del cable y de sonido. Precio justo. El equipo de Crutchfield es excelente en sus entregas y atencion al cliente. Gracias. Quality of the cable and sound. Fair price. The delivery and customer service of the Crutchfield team is excellent. Thank you.

Cons: Ninguna. Nothing.

Very well made and substantial product. I am using it between an iMAC and a pair of PSB PS1 speakers. Without the ability to perform a rapid A/B comparison test I cannot say definitively that this cable improves the sound.

Pros: Appears very well made.

Cons: None I can find.

Nice sound improvemet over my standard cable!

SixFeetDeep from Tinley Park, IL on 1/25/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Some people would call me crazy for spending $29 on a cable to hook up my Samsung Galaxy S3 or my I-Pad Mini to my Jawbone Jambox.. I mean the standard cable that comes with the Jambox does what it's supposed to. But after owning a FoxL Platinum speaker which comes with this cable, I had to have another one! This new cable brings to my ears a broader sound spectrum. Everything is cleaner & richer than it was before. It certainly isn't their top of the line, but this is a nice step up for sure! For the better sound, the price is well worth it to me. I give the cable 5 stars, however there is 1 downfall if you use an OtterBox Defender Series case.......

Pros: Outstanding quality from AudioQuest. Decent price. Typical Crutchfield manner of outstanding customer service & quick shipping.

Cons: What I found out is that if you are using an OtterBox Defender series on your Samsung Galaxy S3, I-Pad Mini or Big I-Pad, this cable will NOT work. You will have to take your device out of the OtterBox in order to use it. That is a hassle, but the sound quality is worth it. Besides, every now & then it's good to take the OtterBox off to clean the screeen of the device inside. The case lets dust in from time to time & it was time to clean it lol.

Product Research

Features

Evergreen Series Stereo Audio Minijack Cable: The AudioQuest Evergreen stereo audio minijack cable is terminated by a gold-plated male 3.5mm stereo connector on each end. The AudioQuest Evergreen stereo audio minijack 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.

Directional: Arrows on the connectors indicate the preferred signal path from the source component to the input.
