From car rides to couch crashes, your music keeps flowing between sources with the PipeLine ET-4 3.5mm to 3.5mm Audio Cable. The cable features two 3.5mm ends (one straight, one curved) that connect between audio sources like smartphones and laptops, to speakers and audio systems. Made from the high-quality materials like solid High-Purity High Performance Copper, there's significantly less distortion and fewer impurities. You'll always get the best audio with no disruptions.
PipeLine ET-4 3.5mm-3.5mm Cable Features:
- Keep your audio devices securely connected for up to 10 feet
- Works great for desktop audio, car audio, and more
- Made with solid copper conductors for reduced distortion, bringing a clean sound to the forefront
PipeLine’s ET-4 3.5mm <> 3.5mm Stereo Audio Cable is a rigorously engineered low-distortion means for connecting all sorts of equipment, such as smart phones, iPods and other portables to powered speakers, components, and to car audio systems. There are skinnier little cables on the market, but ET-4 is thin and flexible and uses a no-compromise low-distortion construction for a sound difference that’ll tickle your ears.
ET-4 makes full use of PipeLine’s in-depth understanding of analog cable design and manufacturing. Solid High-Purity High-Performance Copper (HPPC) conductors completely avoid strand-interaction distortion. HPPC’s fewer impurities and longer copper “grains” ensure greater clarity and naturalness. Foamed-PE minimizes unproductive electrical interaction with the insulation.
Headphones using cable with 3.5mm plugs on both ends are just waiting for a wonderful in-your-ears improvement when used with ET-4.
Metal: Conductor quality is critically important for any audio or video cable. Pipeline’s High-Purity, High-Performance Copper (HPPC) has fewer impurities for improved clarity and naturalness. For the higher signal speed demands of digital cables such as HDMI and USB, Pipeline’s Silver-Clad Copper (SCC) provides exceptional performance by adding a layer of fine silver on the surface of the conductor.
Stranded vs. Solid: In addition to the harshness caused by bare strands contacting each other, the magnetic fields of the various strands constantly interacting leads to a confused and “out-of-focus” sonic presentation. The Concentric-Conductor Construction (CCC) of Pipeline speaker cable nearly eliminates these problems. Solid conductors (as used in Pipeline HDMI, USB and Audio Interconnect cable) are the complete solution.
Cable Geometry: Any cable with two or more individual conductors (positive and negative paths) requires that special attention be paid to the physical relationship between the conductors. Geometry will dictate parameters such as capacitance, inductance, and magnetic interaction. PipeLine uses carefully implemented controlled-construction techniques to ensure that properly optimized and consistant geometry are maintained throughout the cable design.
“Skin-Effect”: The well-recognized (but often misunderstood) phenomenon of “skin-effect” refers to the phenomenon of high frequency energy travelling primarily on the surface of a conductor. Skin-effect also encourages current to jump from strand to strand, causing harshness to the sound.
Insulation: The insulation surrounding all conductors is crucial because the positive and negative conductors have to be kept apart. The downside is that whenever current is present, insulation has some effect on the cable’s performance. In order to limit any effect (distortion), Pipeline uses low-loss Polyethelene insulation for all analog interconnects, speaker cables, and power cables. For high-speed digital and video interconnects Pipeline chooses to use an extremely hard insulation because this reinforces the geometric relationship amoung conductors, an essential element to maintaing a constant impedance over the entire length of the cable
Directions: For audio, all analog and digital cables are directional. The conductor orientation in PipeLine Interconnect ET-4 is carefully controlled. Please use the cables with the arrows pointing from the source components to the receiver, such as CD player to receiver.
