NEW – DHC Symbiote SE V4 – OCC pure copper litz IEM Cable
Starting at $239.00 for your custom OCC litz cable.
Litz OCC Copper IEM Cable
Pure OCC copper litz “Peptide” V4
The Symbiote SE is a beautiful and compact IEM 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 compact 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 Symbiote 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.
Includes options to fit most IEMs – just email us if you are unsure.
We prefer the Eidolic balanced and single-ended amp ends for every configuration.
The essence of the Symbiote SE is our newest litz wire series, the Peptide v4. This wire is absolutely neutral while also being laid back and non-fatiguing.
Peptide v4 is an even more compact, 25 awg wire that we designed from the ground up, matching the feel of our flagship IEM cables with the same layout and a very efficient insulation design which prevents excess bulk. 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 polyethylene insulation has a silky smooth feel and flexibility while minimizing microphonics. Each strand is made of ultrapure OCC copper, coated with an invisible, razor-thin layer of enamel, preserving the integrity and beauty of the wire’s surface forever.
Peptide v4 has a industry-first design to extract maximum performance – a type 4 litz – you see it here first! Our type 4 litz consists of six spiraling bundles of OCC litz strands wrapped around a newly developed core of pure cotton, chosen for its lack of triboelectric interaction with the litz wire’s enamel coating. In this way we endeavor to avoid the formation of electrical charge on the wire’s surface. Type 4 litz reduces mechanical vibration between the strand bundles and avoids allowing the signal to exist in the electrical dead spot at the center of a wire. This sort of litz construct is used in communications and electrical systems in only the most sensitive applications.
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 v4 offers an incredibly involving listening experience without fatigue. Treble detail and bass impact are heightened with this design and soundstage gains in all dimensions. Its physical attributes are optimized for portable and IEM cables, but it is great in all audio applications.
For the first time we are offering an 8-wire (22awg) version of Symbiote SE. It is a top-performing cable for true copper enthusiasts, and we will do our best to make each cable special with additional cosmetic touches and styling flexibility, using our archive of legacy parts and styles. Available for a limited time.
