The Supernova MKII+ seems like a small update from the Supernova MKII, but we have solved the major disadvantage of the previous model, stiffness. With our latest 3rd generation isolating sheath, not only the malleability and transparency of the cable has been greatly improved, it can be easily straightened even after it has been rolled up for a long period. Moreover, the denser material also provides better support for the silver spiral for better stability.
Sound-wise, the mid-range has been tuned lightly fuller for better vocal experience while the other materials and structures have been retained from the classic Supernova MKII.
We are also using our newest metallic cable choker for the Supernova MKII+. Functionally, it is the same as our previous elastic rubber choker, but it is much more aesthetically pleasing as it resembles the same shape and texture as the Y-split metallic part.
Here's the description of our Supernova MKII: Supernova has been a popular choice for its beautiful appearance and acoustic performance, but it needs an update after so long. We had several attempts at modification, but they were not satisfactory by our standards, so we decided to try something new instead of modifying the original cable. For our Supernova MKII, the main conductive threads are now multi-polished instead of single-polished, and that increased effective conductive surface area by 8 times. We achieved this by replacing the previous single silver-over-copper core thread with 30 thinner ones. To stabilize these 30 threads, we did two adjustments. Firstly, there is a nylon thread core in the middle to minimize vibrations and increase tensile strength. Secondly, a buffering sheath is wrapped around the 30 conductive threads for better signal isolation. The concept of the spiral isolating sheath from the original Supernova has been kept and is updated to high-purity silver with an improved spiral pattern. The extremely thin silver sheath from the sonic punch machine wraps around the thread core in a perfect centrifugal pattern to ensure the inner core conducts any signal at any frequency with great accuracy, presenting all the small details in your music. It is also interesting to mention that the silver sheath is also conducting signals, and that helps more information to be carried through the cable. With all the improvements mentioned above, sound stage and detail analysis are improved by around 300% from that of the original Supernova. Last but not least, the transparent isolating sleeve of Supernova MKII is carried over from our Billow and Prima Donna to ensure elastic inertness to reduce minute vibrations and rubbing noises while moving.
4-wire or 8-wire?
The 4-wire option has the advantages of being more economical and lighter in weight.
The 8-wire option has fuller sound, larger soundstage and punchier bass while still feels amazingly soft and easy to use.
All of our IEM cables have pre-bent earguides by default. There are no wires inside as the ear guide is shaped by ourheat shrink sleeve to eliminate the possibility of oxidation of the metallic memory wires. If you do not want any ear guide, please contact us.
The default length of our IEM cables is about 1.2 meters, while headphone cables are around 1.5 meters. If other lengths are needed, please contact us for alternative arrangements.
