WyWires RED, Silver, Blue, Platinum, Gold
WyWires RED series is our newest line for the personal listening market, including headphones cables and extension cables. RED cables are compatible with a variety of headphone and amplifier options. We designed a new Litz wire formula and cable to be flexible, lightweight, durable and non-microphonic. RED is also our thinnest cable line to date, in keeping with our less-is-more philosophy.
WyWires Silver series is the classic line that started the revolution in air dielectric, Litz wire design. The Silver line embodies our design philosophy of ”less is more,” yielding unprecedented electrical and sonic performance. Identified by gray/silver outer sheathing.
WyWires Blue series represents a “trickle down” approach, taking what we have learned during the ongoing development of the Silver series of cables and applying that knowledge to offer a more economical product line. The Blue Series offers much of the performance attributes as the Silver albeit in a simplified and less luxurious offering, at entry level pricing. Identified by royal blue outer sheathing.
The Platinum series are the newest cables in the WyWires lineup (as of 2013.) Platinum is a newly developed series that takes most of the elements of the Silver and adds additional conductor material of varying gauges of Litz wire to accomplish the goals of higher bandwidth and greater frequency extension especially at the low end of the spectrum with increased dynamic range and “slam”. In addition, the Platinum adds greater dimensional information along with more separation of instruments and performers within the soundstage. Identified by brilliant white outer sheathing/sparkling silver underlayer.
WyWires Gold series integrates Bybee Slipstream (Interconnects, Phono, Digital) and Quantum purifiers (Speaker, Juice II, Juice HC Power Cords) into our cables. The Gold line is now based on the Platinum cable, but with enhanced insulation along with new, larger Xhadow RCA and XLR connectors. Identified by sparkling gold underlayer/black outer sheathing. Gold speaker cables now include a solid hardwood box housing the ByBee Quantum Purifiers. Sonic performance of our Gold Series cables is perhaps unrivaled, even at many times the asking price.
