Improving upon Nordost's Blue Heaven USB, the new Heimdall 2 USB is the high-end digital cable that will deliver ones and zeroes with the efficiency and diligence necessary to maintain the correct impedance to dramatically lift your system to a whole new level of performance.
Thanks to the experience acquired in the fabrication of successful products such as the Blue Heaven HDMI and USB cables, Nordost can now further refine digital leads through its most current, proprietary technology. The Heimdall 2 USB is constructed from 4x20AWG stranded, silver-plated 99.99999% OFC conductors, arranged in a precise, twisted double helix in order to ensure character impedance, reduce noise and minimize cross-talk contamination. In order to increase dielectric, the conductors are suspended in Nordost's proprietary FEP Dual Mono-Filament, which is newly optimized to increase flexibility and mechanical dampening. Add a dual layer silver foil jacket and silver braided shield and the Heimdall 2's extreme data transmission speeds surpass the USB 2.0 standards.
To further up the ante, the new Heimdall 2 USB is now implementing mechanically tuned lengths. This technique, used in Nordost's Odin, Norse 2 and Valhalla 2 ranges, reduces internal microphonics and high-frequency impedance resonance, which ultimately allows you to enjoy the dynamics, coherence and balance of live music played in the comfort of your own listening room.
