effortlessly detailed. Powerful bass depth. High levels of treble texture completely lacking the sibilance and shrill tendency commonly found in silver. Midrange with both neutrality and liquidity. Clarity beyond reproach.
Let’s face it, designing a portable headphone cable is hard. A good portable headphone cable needs to be lightweight, easy to manage, protected from the elements and rugged enough to survive your life. Last but certainly not least, you need something that will transfer signal as pristine as possible.
Enter Dreddz S, Hapa Audio’s tour de force solution to all of these problems.
Utilizing our LML philosophy, everything about Dreddz C was designed with weight in mind. Dreddz C utilizes the ultralight weight Nylon Paracord for the spacer, this material has a tensile strength of 325 pounds giving it superior durability. It is resistant to rot, mold, mildew and UV damage and serves as the backbone to the geometry of of cable.
Connectors and all other parts are made of lightweight aluminum, carbon fiber and optional titanium, some of the lightest and most durable materials available.
Easy to Manage
No one wants to untangle cables every time they reach into their pocket. Dreddz S solves this issue once and for all. Due to both clever geometry and springy materials, Dreddz S are highly tangle resistant. Merely pull the in-line cable cinch all the way up, wrap the cable around your hand, and put it in your pocket or included leather carrying case. When you’re ready to rock, pull it back out and they’re ready to go without the headache involved in untangling a knotted mess.
Pristine sound quality
Dreddz S is quiet both electrically and mechanically. Utilizing our proprietary geometry that prevents inductive crosstalk between all four channels (Left +/- Right +/-). The DCS geometry also inherently rejects EM/RF interferences. High purity ‘angel hair’ silver litz is used for the best fidelity possible. It has internal ultra fine nylon strands to reduce internal vibration for nearly ideal power and signal transfer.
All connectors utilize Rhodium plated beryllium-copper alloy for all signal path rather than brass or other lesser options. The Result: Clean, powerful, inviting, and lively sound.
Dreddz S uses our ultra soft, ultra quiet, ultra durable, polymer dielectric. The result: You hear less of the microphonics (also known as jacket noise) of the cable through your IEMs/headphones and more detail in your music.
Designed to protect your IEMs
We know what you’re thinking to yourself right now; How can a cable ‘protect’ an IEM? One of the biggest hazards for any IEM owner is snagging cables and the IEM being ripped from your ear and slammed into a hard surface. With as delicate as IEMs and portable headphones are this often results in damage, or even total destruction. Not to mention such stress can rip apart a cable at the connector and rip the wiring itself.
Our solution: Dynamically Elastic Braid Geometry.
We’ve counted, after the Y on the cable we put approximately 200 braided knots per side into the cable, all done by hand. The braided knots are so tightly woven that the polymer exterior becomes compressed like a spring resulting in a Dynamically Elastic Braid geometry. similar to a spring, the cable can be stretched ever so slightly. This stretchiness offloads any instant pulling stress along the cable to the clear flexible polymer, protecting the delicate connectors, the hair thin litz wire inside the cable, and of course your IEMs.
The other result; A gentle feedback system that can make the difference between a cable quickly becoming snagged and launching your IEMs as with other cables OR a gentler tug alerting the wearer to imminent disaster which allows the user some reaction time to accidental snags as with Dreddz.
Why do we take so much time and effort to hand make our Dynamically Elastic Braid geometry? Because we know the pain of tearing cables accidentally as well as the pain of losing an IEM to environmental hazards. We designed Dreddz to help mitigate this issue as much as possible.
Put a little color in your life!
