The Exo Series BT cable is a new versatile detachable Bluetooth enabled cable release from PlusSound Audio starting at $149.

Our Score

The Thor Silver IEM cable is one of Effect Audio’s core or long-term product lines and was originally launched in 2013. You can still buy it today from Effect Audio for around $250 and graze through the various positive reviews it garnished around the time of release.

This is part three of a four-part series of high-end cables. For the general introduction about cable performance and matching, please see the first review of the series (Rhapsodio Golden). In each review, the scores of ‘looks’ and ‘build & ergonomics are weighted together in the final averaging of the score, as I find the other two scores proportionally more important.Read the full article
