Vygarde Fusion (new) - Headphone Cable Adapters
Delivering the greatest benefits of the best silver occ litz (enamel strand) and copper copper occ litz (enamel strand) in our precisely selected strand count and design.
Match your main Vygard Fusion silver+copper occ litz headphone cable with the perfect mating adapter.
Note that if you select a Single ended female connector you may only convert that to other single ended male connectors (example, 3.5mm TRS female - to - 1/4" TRS male)
If you select a Balanced female connector ("Headphone cable end" dropdown) you may terminate it to any possible option we have listed in the ("Amplifer DAP/ Termination" dropdown).
12-wire (equivalent 20.9awg per polarity)
Pure Copper OCC Litz (enamel strand)
Pure Silver OCC Litz (enamel strand)
Each conductor with our cotton center cores + new specialized strand processing
Flexible TPU jacket on each conductor with many textile sleeve options available
Exlusive metallic tracer options
Flexible and comfortable
Shown above are various sleeve options available for the Vygarde adapters, you can
simple specify any combination in your checkout notes or contact us to request the combination on your cable.
If there is a particular connector you do not see, odds are we can make it without a problem. Please just email us via contact form to confirm, or email norneaudiocables at gmail dot com.
We are proud to say that our outer textile sleeves are 100% made in the USA to the highest quality and standard. Our sleeves are not simply something you can find off the shelf and they have their own extremly nice quality and feel. The factory we are using in the USA only adhere to the highest standard of quality given their long list of other prestigious clientelle. Not only possessing a top feel, our sleeves are very durable with a lower level of mechanical noise (microphonics).

IACS (International Annealed Copper Standard)
The IACS rating is the metric used to describe a metals conductivity as compared to the standard of copper.
First take a look below at pure metals conductivity ratings.
(1) OCC Pure Silver - 107%
(2) OCC Copper - 103%
(3) Copper (common grade) - 100%
(4) Gold - 73%
Silver is the best there is, in pure form, period.
If you take a 1"x 1"x 1" cube of pure silver and compare its conductivity to an identical 1"x 1"x 1" cube of gold, the gold is considered 32-35% less conductive than the pure silver.
An alloy, by definition, is less pure than the original pure metals it is comprised of. Alloys are in existence largely for strength / hardness properties and are not meant for high end audio cables. When you alloy a metal, say gold with silver, you quickly decrease its purity and IACS rating. Even at just 1% gold alloyed with silver the IACS rating drops down well below plumbing grade copper. Alloys in the audio world came about purely as competition increased and there was desperation for new ways to try and market a cable to the uneducated masses.
Norne Audio will always utilize the purest form of a metal and will always use pure silver occ litz, pure copper occ litz, spc occ litz or mixes thereof. Our goal is the design that possesses the absolute top specifications of the highest possible quality.
