The Blue Heaven USB 2.0 Data Cable sets a new technological and performance standard when it comes to computer audio. Nordost's proven, proprietary FEP and Micro Mono-Filament construction delivers low dielectric loss and minimizes cable induced timing errors in critical digital signals. This cable is purpose built from four OFC conductors, optimally dimensioned for digital signal transfer. These are precision wound, double shielded and terminated, to ensure geometrical and sonic consistency. Full metal jacket, in-molded connectors extend both precision and shielding, while gold-plated contacts maintain optimum signal transfer. The result is an ultra high-speed, low-loss cable, specifically designed to deliver the best possible performance from computer audio sources. Superior technology, superior materials and superior build quality all add up to one thing–superior sound.
"[The Blue Heaven USB] did sound subjectively quieter than most of the others here, a reflection of its freedom from grit and grain … The music enjoyed a natural ebb and flow, the instruments sounding relaxed but poised and delicately detailed, the soundstage eerily ‘black’" – Paul Miller, Hifi News
