“Experience shows that the cable assembly is the most vulnerable part of any earphone,” comments Sensaphonics president and founder Dr. Michael Santucci. “By converting to a field-replaceable design, Sensaphonics users will have far greater assurance that they will never have to do a show without their earphones.”

“Experience shows that the cable assembly is the most vulnerable part of any earphone,” comments Sensaphonics president and founder Dr. Michael Santucci. “By converting to a field-replaceable design, Sensaphonics users will have far greater assurance that they will never have to do a show without their earphones.”

Sensaphonics Hearing Conservation recently announced the availability of field-replaceable cables for its ProPhonic 2X-S and 2MAX dual-driver custom earphones. The new cable system creates the extra margin of security touring artists require.

Designed by Sensaphonics Japan, the new cables are a tour grade, dual-conductor design, featuring a memory-wire insert at the earpiece end and a split adjuster (zipper) to ensure a secure fit behind the head. Users may specify either matte silver or black, in lengths of 52 or 60 inches.

The new Sensaphonics cable is secured to each earpiece with a nylon screw, eliminating any chance of it being accidentally pulled out. “Offering a field replaceable cable for our soft silicone earpieces was always a goal,” notes Santucci, “but we knew any friction-based system would be a poor compromise. We developed this approach for our 3D Active Ambient earphones, and user response was so positive that we decided to develop a similar version for the ProPhonic 2X-S and 2MAX as well.”

Sensaphonics’ says their unique soft-gel silicone custom earphones provide distinct performance and reliability advantages, including long-wearing comfort and superior sound isolation. In addition, the silicone acts as a shock absorber to protect the earphone electronics and will not crack, shrink, fade, or degrade in any way.
