FAQ

What is Ohno Continuous Casting (OCC)?

OCC is an industrial process that produces a sonically superior wire by eliminating grain boundaries, impurities and oxygen.  The resulting single crystal of silver or copper provides a high bandwidth path for signal transfer. Our Ultra Pure OCC (UP-OCC) wire is custom made to our specifications by one of the largest producers of OCC wire.

How does UP-OCC copper sound differently from UP-OCC silver plated copper (SPC)?  

In general, the all copper wire will have a slight warmth and smoothness while the SPC wire will be neutral, resolving and have an excellent sense of air that contributes to superior imaging and soundstage. Some customers like to pair a bright headphone such as the Sennheiser HD800 with a copper cable or a dark headphone like the Audeze LCD2.1 with a SPC cable. It's really a matter of personal preference and what kind of sound you like.
