Premium type 4 litz OCC Headphone Cable
Pure OCC copper litz “Peptide” V4
The Molecule SE is a beautiful and compact headphone cable. It features an all-new, custom pure OCC copper litz wire and performance that will amaze and surprise you, in an ultra-flexible, ultra-light package that demands to be seen. It is just as comfortable as Fusion and Silver Peptide, our new reigning champions of compactness, with a 25awg wire size making a four-wire braid the optimal configuration for travel & ergonomics. The 2021 fourth generation Molecule SE retains the type 4 litz with pure cotton core while adding a new ultra-flexible, ultra-tough insulation – one that perfects the properties of durability and ergonomics without any drawbacks.
The Molecule SE comes out on top in this review:
Headphones & terminations:
Available for most headphones with detachable cables, and most terminations. We use the best Eidolic connectors wherever possible. For the few headphones not covered by Molecule SE, opt for Molecule Elite.
The essence of the Molecule SE is our newest litz wire series, Peptide v4.
Peptide SE25 is a highly compact, 25 awg wire that we designed from the ground up, optimal for four wire braids, but with a very efficient insulation design which prevents excess bulk. It is exactly the same size and layout as our Fusion and SP silver wires, but with a pure OCC copper design. The strand size is the smallest featured in IEM cables for maximum flexibility and surface area, with one of the highest strand counts in a IEM litz wire. The insulation has been redesigned for maximum optical clarity, silky smooth feel, and flexibility without microphonics. The litz strand is then enameled with an invisible, razor-thin layer of enamel, preserving the integrity and beauty of the wire’s surface forever.
The strands are arranged in bundles with a specific configuration designed to expose each strand equally to the center of the wire and the outside of the wire. This keeps the wire’s impedance more consistent, and the individually insulated strands function as one massive surface for the signal to travel upon. Litz design as a whole makes skin effect and AC losses non-issues. The wire is cryogenically treated by the manufacturer for enhanced strength and electrical performance.
We have extensively tested this wire with a variety of equipment from home gear to portable. Peptide offers an incredibly intense listening experience without fatigue. Treble detail and bass impact are heightened with this design and soundstage gains in all dimensions.
We offer this cable “naked” for maximum portability or with our signature silver or black fiber sleeves.
Our “Capsid” carbon fiber-trimmed CNC-machined aluminum y-splitter is a free option on our IEM and headphone cables now. This splitter is very small, weighing next to nothing, and exists to make our cables look and feel awesome. We still offer DHC logo heatshrink if you would prefer an even smaller option. SE22 exclusively uses our SX1, SX2, and SX5 Eidolic splitters, a perfect fit with unique styling.
