OIDIO Mongrel Audeze LCD & Meze Empyrean Adapter Converter Cable Pair

A Mongrel Series audio adapter cable pair designed to convert existing commonly wired dual 4-pin mini-XLR cables, such as many variants of Audeze LCD and Meze Empyrean, for use on other headphones and connector types. It does this by using 2x male 4-pin mini-XLR connectors at one end, which attach to your existing cable, and new headphone connectors of your choice at the other to allow you to connect that cable to a new headphone that uses different connectors. The new headphone end connectors have the option for different coloured heat shrink (heat shrink colours may not be a perfect match to the cord colours, for example they may appear paler or in a different shade) or our printed L/R letter shrinks, if you select such an option it will apply only to the new headphone connectors and not to the male Rean mini-XLR's.

This adapter will work on a variety of dual 4-pin mini-XLR cables that are designed for headphones such as: Audeze LCD-2, LCD-3, LCD-4, LCD-4z, LCD-5, LCD-MX4, LCD-X, LCD-XC and MM-500 headphones, Meze Empyrean, most ZMF and Kennerton headphones, and some Fischer headphones including 'FA-011 10th Anniversary Edition'. HOWEVER, other dual 4-pin mini-XLR headphones may be incompatible with this listing due to using different wiring standards, therefore please check before ordering if your cable is for a different headphone not listed above as the warranty only applies for use on cables that are compatible with the above headphones.

Our Mongrel Series cables can be made with either a high purity 80-strand litz copper wire with a polyester filament (Litz), or a higher purity 100-strand silver plated copper wire with a soft Teflon coating (SPC). Both are similar in flexibility and tensile strength, though there are a few differences. The silver plated copper has a Teflon coating around the whole cable while the copper is litz so each strand has its own enamel coating with a polyester filament holding them together, the Teflon coating on the silver plated copper is better for audio but does make it slightly more rigid, while the litz wire is a bit more flexible. The litz copper has a larger gauge, as though there are fewer strands the strands are wider, while the silver plated copper has a higher purity and the copper inside is OCC (the litz copper is NOT OCC). The silver plated copper used in this cable is the same wire we use in our -PLUS range of headphone cables and will therefore sound the same in a like for like spec. While these differences can present audible differences for many users for such a short adapter listing like this there will not be much of a difference, however you may still want to match closest to whatever your existing cable is. Each wire core is sleeved individually inside 550 paracord, which provides the cable with additional strength, insulation and customised look, while maintaining a high degree of flexibility. We have over 20 colours to choose from in our Mongrel series, and up to three colours can be selected. For this cable pair, there are 2 wire cord sets each in twisted pairs as shown. If you have any questions about the options for this cable please feel free to contact us and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

All our cables are soldered using lead-free silver solder (4% silver) to ensure the best quality joins for both signal and strength. The example images on our listings are as a guide only; any and all cables purchased may look slightly different to these example images. We are also pleased to offer the Mongrel series with an extended 18-month warranty.
