What are the advantages of the FIIO Furukawa monocrystalline copper headphone cable?

A high-end headphone cable should be high-quality in all aspects. Compared to the typical headphone cable, the LC-RC 2024 ensured that this cable not only contains not only high-quality materials, but also has gone through careful design considerations regarding material processing, build quality, and ergonomics informed by our seventeen years of acoustic design experience – to fully unleash the potential of your headphones.

LC-RC 2024 sound characteristics

Genuine Furukawa wires, Imported from Japan

Behind excellent sounding products are high-quality materials. The inner wires of the LC-RC 2024 cable are sourced from Furukawa Denki Industrial Co., Ltd in Japan, with official certification. You can be assured of the cable’s pleasant sound thanks to its genuine quality materials.

Secondary-refined monocrystalline copper

The copper wires in the LC-RC 2024 undergo extensive treatment in order to ensure excellent signal transmission performance through the wires. After undergoing the treatment pores, impurities and grain boundaries in the copper are minimized – allowing signals to travel more unimpeded through the wires, giving the LC-RC 2024 excellent audio performance.

4 strands totaling 480 wires

For earphone cables, a greater number of wires means a larger cross-sectional area, which in turn leads to lower resistance and better conductivity. The FIIO LC-RC 2024 not only uses 1000.05mm diameter Furukawa single-crystal copper wire for each major strand but also employs 20 wires of silver-plated monocrystalline copper wire at the center of each major strand. There are a total of 480 wires across the 4 major strands, with the cross-sectional area totaling 22AWG. Cables are rarely made with such a large amount of high-end materials, making the FIIO LC-RC 2024 an excellent choice as an upgrade to your existing earphones.

Will it expand the soundstage?

It looks great. I don't believe in cables improving sound but it's clearly a very well made quality cable and flexible too.

Nice, that they thought of the silver solder.

What about the mmcx sockets, and 3.5mm or 4.4mm plugs used? Are they a brass mixed plug? Or is there pure copper under the gold plating. (And what about the 4-pins behind the swappable plugs?)

For these kind of products, I like for the marketing to mention, if the pins/plugs and sockets are pure copper.

Holy smokes, this cable is thick and heavy. 🥰

Feels like an expensive cable. Pic above is comparing against legacy LC-RC -- the one that ships with the FA7S and FH7S, for instance. Copper version is a little memory prone and microphonic, but nothing that bothers me.

Purchased this cable to match with my black FA7S. Some eye candy. :heart_eyes:

If this is the cable that will ship with the new FD15, that's a big 👍 from me. A dark-looking FD15 would be killa. Please think about it, @FiiO.

Cheers.
