Discover EA's "new beast from a dystopian future," with its power and ultramodern technical fluency. CODE 23 is a representation of EA's persistence with pushing a single material to its fullest potential. Befitting of their flagship copper cable label, CODE 23 features and combines multiple technologies into a coherent piece of tech: pure copper solid core, a host of 12 different multi-size core bundles, a proprietary blend of multi-size strands, a whopping 16.5 AWG and more. The result is a transformational experience with picturesque vocals that are true-to-life and a sub bass that reaches the deepest levels.
Hear the new flagship level copper sound and be transported into an other-worldly cyber realm!
The first CODE product, CODE 51, was created to explore the extremities of the Silver material. EA went all out with multiple rounds of experimentation and eventually landed on a Tri-Silver design: Palladium-plated Silver, Gold-plated Silver, and Silver/Gold alloy, perfectly blended to provide a marvelously detailed and crystal clear performance that passes the mark for a Flagship-worthy Silver cable.
Today... CODE 23 is the Copper equivalent of that.
EA wants to cater to the diehard copper fans, those that love copper for its warm, lush and emotive sound. CODE 23 explores that and turns the knob all the way up!
For the first time in 14 years of cable-making history, Effect Audio is proud to introduce a cable where “headphone” is released as a standard option. CODE 23 will be suitable for both IEMs and headphones.
During the idea phase for CODE 23, EA stepped out of the comfort zone and dove into the exact components within their cable’s engineering DNA, focusing largely on one of the most critical factors of an audio cable: American Wire Gauge size.
The focus is on SOUND this round, and they weren't afraid to break norms. After several rounds of multi-testing, they managed to create their first whopping 16.5 AWG Effect Audio cable (10x thicker than a standard 26AWG cable) that features a remarkably floor-low resistance.
Applying a non-stranded wire structure has always been top of the EA list and finally realized in an impeccable system. A solid core cable is a superior electrical conductor that raises the bar with stable electrical characteristics and resistance to vibration and corrosion. Being the first solid core cable in EA history with technical advantage over the others, CODE 23 will excite and engage.
A higher resolution sound can be achieved when a perfect ratio of bundle cores to a single wire is applied. After multiple rounds of relentless experimentation, CODE 23 has an optimal positioning of 12 cores that intricately surround a single solid core.
The size of the wire strands affects how current passes through, and in simple words, a blend of different sizes will correlate to how each frequency range is affected. To achieve the sound that Effect Audio deemed perfect for CODE 23, a proprietary blend of multiple different size strands were implemented.
Similar to the Cleopatra II, CODE 23 features both ConX and TermX interchangeable connectors and cable termination system to allow maximum versatility. You can now pair CODE 23 with your favorite DAP or headphones anytime, anywhere.
CODE 23 features engaging mids and is designed to be transformative, bringing listeners on a discovery into the musician’s world. The low end is also transformed! A subwoofer produces the lowest of frequencies that can you can feel - that’s the target for CODE 23. On top of a visceral punch and a strong sensorial bass, listeners can expect to unlock the deepest rumble for a more immersive, auditory experience.
