  Single-pair: X-Band Double Shield  
  The X-Band series is an ultra-flexible, sonically transparent, low-noise, and durable balanced audio cable for use in critical recording studio facilities or live sound venues. X-Band single-pair is both extremely flexible and flaccid, yet maintains a high degree of durability. Each oxygen-free copper conductor is insulated with a unique low k constant, foam polypropylene dielectric that lowers the capacitance and extends the bandwidth of the cable. Low noise is achieved through tight and precision pair twisting with a double shield—durable 95% braid and 100% foil shield. In addition, X-Band also remains easy to prep and terminate. The insulation and jacket are both easy to score, break, and strip; the tight weave braided shield is easy to trim and terminate via the drain wire.
