Why are these so good?
Flexibility: The flexibility of original cords was achieved using a tinsel wire and a cotton insulator. These cords also use a tinsel core with a very soft and flexible polymer coating which ensures a high level of electrical insulation exceeding that of the original cords. This is not an 'off the shelf' wire and is manufactured specifically and exclusively for me.
Size: The cores are manufactured to tight tolerances to accurately reproduce the diameter of an original cord. All cores have strain relief fibres running through them to give a high tensile strength.
Finish: The cores are braided with custom dyed pure Egyptian cotton supplied by a top UK manufacturer. The finish is matt and soft to the touch.
Anchor: Importantly, these cords use the same securing methods as the original cords. Loops are used for handsets and colour matched cotton ties for other fixings.
Termination: The ring terminals are chosen to match the size of machine screw used. Hence, they are covered by the screw head so as to retain the original appearance. If you would prefer a different termination, please contact me to discuss other options available.
