Our RED Headphone Cable series provides an immediate upgrade from stock cables, for high-quality headphones.  Works with any mid- to high-grade headphone with detachable connectors.

RED Series’ physical design was engineered to provide optimum weight, flex and texture for comfortable, tangle-free use. Free of excessive mass and unnecessary materials, our RED Series cables provide the headphone user with a sonic upgrade without adversely affecting established ergonomics.

RED now comes in two versions – original RED formula (red-and-white design) and Platinum formula (white-and-gray design). Each formula has benefits.

RED formula highlights:
Created exclusively for reference headphones, WyWires proprietary wire formula.
Hand-crafted in the USA
Up to 4x the conductivity of stock cables without adding unwanted mass
Reduces capacitance that causes time-delay smearing and transient masking
Reduces signal cross-talk for a deep, immersive soundstage for all music genres

Platinum Formula highlights:
Platinum is the upgrade to our popular RED headphone cable.  Consider benefits of the foundation RED formula, with greatly reduced inductance, resulting in higher resolution and better transient response.  The Platinum cable also has a proprietary carbon/graphine compound to absorb and dissipate high frequency electromagnetic interference. The design of Platinum incorporates this compound in a small protective tube.

Red Series Adaptors will work with virtually any headphone with detachable cables and any amplifier, DAC, DAP, iPhone, iPod…the list is long.  If we can source the connectors we can accommodate our customers’ needs.  Our extension cable gives you tremendous flexibility (literally!) and freedom.

Latest Reviews and Comments:

Communities such as, and other personal audio sites and blogs feature user and professional comments, as well as which headphones, amplifiers, DAPs, DACs people are using with our Red Series products.

Audeze and Red XLR are quite a marriage. I’m running a complete chain balanced off my heavily modded Marantz SA11S2 through the HPA to my ears. As some smart person said ‘everything old is new again.’  I’ll probably need intensive care after the burn in.  John Hiatt’s Perfectly Good Guitar KA better than ever. Rim shots and decay, oh my! Maybe I’ll go for platinum a year from now.”  –Mark B.

“I received the cable today, and aside from the fact that it looks beautiful, it has dramatically increased my enjoyment of the ETHER Flow.”  — Christian J.
