JDS Labs <0.1 ohm audio cable

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Is this accurate? Does the JDSLabs 3.5mm audio cable really have <0.1 ohm impedance? http://www.jdslabs.com/products/145/jds-labs-3-5mm-interconnect-cable/

 

I have no way to test this.

 

I'm asking because I purchased Fidelio X1s and looking to replace the cable. Most are recommending the Mediabridge cable but there is no mention of the their impedance anywhere. http://www.amazon.com/Mediabridge-3-5mm-Stereo-Audio-Cable/dp/B004LTEUDO/ref=lp_597566_1_4?s=audio-video-accessories&ie=UTF8&qid=1427046874&sr=1-4

 

I have also looked at http://www.amazon.com/iXCC-Tangle-Free-Tangle-Resistant-3-5mm-enabled-Smartphone/dp/B00KWR8Q9S/ref=lp_597566_1_7?s=audio-video-accessories&ie=UTF8&qid=1427046874&sr=1-7

I know nothing about this specific cable, but JDS Labs is an excellent vendor. I would trust them on this.

I don't know about excellent. This was my first purchase from them and not only did they send me a wrong cable, it was also from monoprice.I contacted them though and they said they will re-ship on Monday.

It's just a 3.5mm stereo interconnect. Any decent build-quality cable will work fine.

Oddly peculiar that $220-$250 headphones would have a poor quality interconnect cable while just any other cable is "decent".

I just took a cheap 3.5mm cable  for about $5 dollar and checked it with my $500 multimeter it read .183 ohms. I'll test my BJC later when I get the chance

The stock X1 cable has impedance of something like 1.8, which is abnormally high. The cable impedance makes a big impact on the bass of these headphones, which is what makes these headphones.

i am a noob what is ohm?

It is the unit of measurement used for impedance. Like Fahrenheit and Celsius is the unit of measurement for temperature.

Furthermore, impedance is the resistance to a current when you supply voltage.
