VOVOX :: Instrument cable
Connectors for VOVOX® sonorus protect A
Our pronounced goal is the perfect transmission of sound signals. To achieve this aim, the cable, but also the connectors, must fulfil our requirements. Since most phone plugs available on the market are designed with only their mechanical properties in mind, we use our own VOVOX® phone plugs: A ¼” phone plug offering both first class functionality and first class sound.
- Optimized signal contact made of copper
- Robust housing made of fiber-reinforced engineering-plastic
- Optimal bend-protection
- Efficient strain-relief
- Lead-free soldering
Straight or angled ¼” phone plugs?
Especially in the case of instrument cables, we suggest carefully choosing the kind of connector that suits you best: Using a 90° right angle plug will often reduce the mechanical stress on the instrument as well as on the cable. Like this it contributes to longer service life of both, cable and jack. For acoustic guitars, angled plugs are usually the better choice.

Additional conductor for ground
The conductors within a cable must fulfil several functions. The shield has the main function of protecting the signal conductor from interference. In most cables, the shield is also used as the return signal conductor. VOVOX® consequently separates these functions. This may be a more complex construction, yet it results clearly in better sound quality.
Optimal protection from microphonic noise
When a guitar cable is moved or stepped on, small electrical signals are created due to the change of the capacitance or due to electrostatic charges. This effect is called microphonic. It creates a disturbing crackling noise. Usually this phenomenon is avoided with the help of conductive plastics. Howevery, like this also sound quality is negatively affected. We have found our own technique to solve the problem of microphonic noise using natural materials – without compromizing sound quality.
