I would like to thank Penon Audio for providing me the Penon OS849 cable for a review. The cable material is made of 6N single crystal copper silver-plated with 8% silver purity. Its thickness is 10 μm and its length is 1.2m. There are 8 cores to this cable with 49 strands per core which result in its name, 849. The solder used is a combination of silver and tin. The jack contains 68% copper. The Penon OS849 I received comes with MMCX connectors and 3.5mm single ended jack. At the moment, you can buy this cable from Penon Official .



The cable is wrapped up nicely and sit in a soft carrying pouch customised by Penon. The pouch has a nice silky feel to it and is light grey in colour. On the case, the “Penon” logo is printed on it. I find the case to be well built and the size is great for portable use.
