Product Details

Blue Truth® XLR Cable Overview

Silky-smooth audio using our advanced TFE (Teflon®) insulation. This balanced audio cable is a dual conductor, twisted pair configuration. It features 99.999% pure silver-coated copper conductors. Plus an equally pure silver coated shield will put you in sonic heaven. Balanced lines are the preferred method (for hum free) interconnecting of sound systems using a shielded twisted-pair. The principal behind balanced lines is that the signal is transmitted over one wire and received back on another wire. The shield does not carry any information, thus it is free to function as a true shield. This circuit's shining virtue is its great common-mode noise rejection ability. The concept here relies on induced noise showing up equally (or common) on each wire. It is mainly due to EMI (electromagnetic interference: passing through or near magnetic fields), RFI (radio frequency interference: strong broadcast signals), noisy ground references, or a combination of all three.

Our Blue Truth® XLR cables exhibit exactly equal impedance from each line relative to ground, guaranteeing equal noise susceptibility. Since the balanced input stage amplifies only the difference between the lines, it rejects everything else (noise) that is common to the lines.

Blue Truth® XLR Audio Cable Technical Information

  • Stranded-core silver-coated conductors.
  • Silver-coated shield.
  • Features audiophile-grade Neutrik Male to Female XLR connectors with silver contacts.
  • Low 26.5 pF/ft capacitance.
  • TFE Teflon® dielectric insulation.

The hybrid construction gives all of the sonic benefits of silver (dynamic high frequencies) and all of the sonic benefits of copper (deep, tight bass response).

The Blue Truth® is their latest iteration of simplicity, quality, and not very expensive...Teflon is the dielectric, which is considered about the best there is, with its low dielectric constant, and should provide a low capacitance. Sound quality was solid, and what I have come to expect from BetterCables. There was no harshness or smearing that I could detect. All in all, these latest BetterCables® products are as listenable as any that I have heard.

John E. Johnson, Jr. - (Secrets of Home Theater & High Fidelity)

This combination of silver, low-attenuation, and high-quality Teflon® insulation makes this a world-class balanced audio cable.
