Pure OCC Cryo Type 4 Litz Silver in a whopping 18AWG 

 

The Hydra is the first of it’s kind, not only is it our first pure silver litz cable, this cable utilises 3 different sized silver strands within each of the 6 bundled silver strands within each wire. All of the 4 wires used to make each cable contain 6 bundles of silver strands with each bundle being made from 3 different sized OCC Pure Silver strands with cotton dampening at the core of the wire.

 

Previously we have always used gold based cables, although not as conductive as pure silver (which our competitors will always point out) we have always believed in designing wired based on how they sound, regardless of how conductive they might be.

 

We have still always wanted to offer our customers an all silver cable, we did at a point with the Anthrax stranded silver cable,but i soon took this off the shelf as i never liked how it sounded, bright, harsh, lacking in the low end and very muddy before long hours of burn in with most headphones.

 

Earlier this year, i started working with the leading manufacturer of Pure OCC Wires who we have had a good relationship with for many years and agreed to make us small batches of wire with my specific designs, till i loved the sound of a particular design and we hit gold on the 3rd batch and after refining it a little, we now have the 4th and final batch in hand.

Here at Toxic Cables we pride ourselves on quality and innovation.

Toxic Cables has been leading the way in new design and innovation in headphone cables since it was founded in 2011. The very first cable we released was the baby brother to this cable, the Silver Poison which was an OCC Cryo Silver/Gold stranded wire, the very first in the industry.

Within months of founding Toxic Cables, we had a huge line up of cables available to our customers, with over 8 cables to choose from at the time, our customers had every type of cable they could want under one roof, compared to our competitors 2/3 offering.

Soon we followed on with more firsts to the industry, including our true hybrid Virus and our Silver Litz “Silver Widow” cables and now the multi sized strand Hydra line up.

We won’t tell you how good our cables are or how good they sound as we have always believed that we should let our cables speak for themselves and if you click on the link above and read the reviews from our customers, i am sure you will find that they do exactly that.

No fancy words, no hard selling, just honest reviews from first hand users.

  1. 5 out of 5

    I have most of Frank’s cables and so when Frank informed me that he was coming out with a brand new TOTL silver litz cable, I definitely wanted to give it a try since i’ve never know Frank to be this excited.

    When I received the Hydra, the first thing that struck me was how nice and substantial it felt in hand. It was a beauty too.

    Of course, the proof is in the pudding. I plugged it into my well-loved but errant Audeze LCD 3. It is a very good headphone. However, coaxing it to perform up to the level i know the drivers are capable of is always difficult. I plugged it into my Cavalli LAu and I was blown away: the LCD 3 seemed to convey the music more effortlessly: the nuances of the vocals were very apparent from the outset. The soundstage seems to have increased – I know that Audezes and soundstage don’t go together according to conventional wisdom but the LCD 3, and even the LCD 2.2, benefitted greatly from the Hydra. The soundstage was not just wider but the depth was nicely layered as well. All of a sudden, there was much more nuances and information coming through the LCD 3. The timbre that was conveyed was excellent. And most importantly, there was impressive note weight overall. The trebles are smooth while the bass is now as organic is I have heard from the LCD 3

    What I can say is that the Hydra has now helped banish the thought that’s always been at the back of my mind: sell the LCD 3. 🙂 The Hydra has opened up the LCD 2.2 and 3 so much that I can honestly say that the LCD 4 can wait while I enjoy my existing Audezes afresh. 🙂
