Hosa Technology has introduced a significant upgrade of the company’s popular Elite Series microphone cables, which are now available with Neutrik XX-Series connectors plus a new nylon webbing over the cable’s PVC jacket.
Available in both Lo-Z (XLR3F to XLR3M) and Hi-Z (XLR3F to 1/4-inch TS) configurations, the cables use 20 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors that reduce resistance in order to facilitate maximum signal transfer.
Polyethylene dielectrics reduce capacitance for enhanced high-frequency transmission, while conductive PVC reduces handling noise.
Further, a 95 percent OFC braided shield is employed for noise-free signal transmission. The PVC jacket is cut- and abrasion-resistant for added durability.
The Neutrik XX-Series connectors employ gold-plated contacts for corrosion resistance and superior signal transfer, and they also utilize a zinc die-cast housing for rock-solid reliability. Polyurethane “glands” prevent cable kinking for longer cable life and chuck-type strain enhances cable retention.
“These second generation Elite Series cables offer exceptional audio performance and have been field tested for maximum reliability,” says Jonathan Pusey, Hosa Technology vice president of sales and marketing. “With a rich feature set and a highly competitive price, we are extremely optimistic that this product line will find favor with a wide range of customers.
“The Elite Series has always been an exceptional product and now, with the addition of Neutrik connectors and abrasion-resistant nylon webbing for a lifetime of dynamic, noise-free sound quality, I’m confident these mic cables offer the best possible combination of performance and value.”
The Hosa Elite Series microphone cables are available in lengths from 3 to 100 feet and carry MSRP pricing that ranges from $42.75 – $203.55. The Elite Series is slated to become available late Q2, 2012.
