Q: What does "FAW OCC 7N Cryo copper" stand for?
A: It is a name for our custom wire - made exclusively just for us in one of the 3 certified OCC copper factories. Few facts:
- Custom formulated clear PE insulation and highest strand count on market (60) for superior flexibility
- AWG24 for the best flexibility/durability ratio
- High purity UPOCC (99,99999% copper content)
- Treated in proprietary cryo process in Poland
- Balanced, yet dynamic and impactful sound singature
Q: OCC and OFC, what is the difference?
A: OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) is a superor method of manufacturing audio grade cooper and silver cables. It was developed by professor Ohno of the Chiba Institute of Technology in Japan. Basically the OCC copper wire is made of cooper crystal of length exceeding 700 feet and almost free from any impurities (99,99999% purity). In comparision OFC wire crystals are about 8 feet long and purity depends on the manufacturer (from 99,99% to 99,9999%). It is not the purity which make the biggest difference, but 90 times more crystal boundaries on the path of audio signal. Not to bore you with details you can just imagine driving on smooth 5 lane highway (OCC) and compare it to bumpy dirt road (OFC) - that is basically what your audio signal is going through.
Q: Should I choose "Flat" or "3D" braid?
A: The main difference between those two is the flexibility. Flat braid is more flexible in one plane and because of low profile it is recommended for IEM cables. It also gives better results than 3D braid in LODs and other short cables where the high flexibility in just one plane is of utmost importance. 3D braid is evenly flexible in any direction which makes it suitable for longer cables such as headphone cables and interconnects.
