Fresh for the holidays, Effect Audio has announced their latest earphone cable and new flagship, the Code 51 (or Five-One). Using a brand new architecture, this cable marks a new apogee of precision and craftsmanship for the Singaporean cable institution.
Effect Audio Announces New Flagship Cable Code 51
Breaking the long-followed tradition of naming their cables after mythical deities, the Five-One designation signifies the first iteration in a new line of cables. Ten years in the making, this cable combines UP-OCC materials with a hybrid construction.
Featuring gold-plated silver, silver-gold alloy, and palladium-plated silver (PPS), this new cable uses the finest materials. This also constitutes the first time Effect Audio has offered these three materials in a single cable.
But naming conventions and construction aren’t the only trends being bucked here. The Code 51 also forgoes 26AWG wire in favor of larger 24AWG wires. This design choice – based on market trends and feedback – adds a 30% increase to the diameter of the cable. However, using 24AWG wires in a 4-wire braided construction offers an 80% increase in sound quality.
Even the Y-Split has been fashioned from premium materials, featuring a titanium build. Adding to the futuristic look of the cable, it also ensures a level of durability one would expect from Effect. What’s more, the sculptured design features an asymmetrical appearance with beveled lateral parts. These angles shimmer with an ever-changing array of reflections when exposed to light.
