Cable Build & Design
The cable is made of 24.5 AWG pure OCC Silver and it has a 4 core braided design. The Agni I will be reviewing has 2 pins 0.78mm connectors and 3.5mm jack. The cable can be customized in many ways subject to the availability of the component. Each connector has a silver housing with white and red stripe on the left and right side respectively. There is strain relief. There is no memory wire area section. The chin slider has a rectangular shape with rounded sides. The y-splitter has a unique design with the brand logo printed on it. Both the chin slider and y-splitter are silver in color. The jack is not an ordinary jack but instead, it is a FT-735 jack from Furutech. The FT-735 utilizes rhodium-plated alpha phosphor bronze conductor and it has a silver housing with a winged-like pattern.
