Sensaphonics upgrades earphones with field-replaceable cable
Sensaphonics Hearing Conservation, maker of high-resolution custom earphones, has made available field-replaceable cables for its ProPhonic 2X-S and 2MAX dual-driver custom earphones. Designed by Sensaphonics Japan, the new cables are a heavy-duty grade, dual-conductor design featuring a memory-wire insert at the earpiece end and a split adjuster to ensure a secure fit behind the head.
Users may specify either matte silver or black, in lengths of 52in or 60in. Unlike friction-fit systems, the new Sensaphonics cable is secured to each earpiece with a nylon screw, eliminating any chance of it being accidentally pulled out. The new field-replaceable cables are now in production and are included as standard on all new ProPhonic 2X-S and 2MAX earphones; pricing remains unchanged. The original integrated cable and Sensaphonics’ breakaway cable assemblies will remain available upon request.
