Effect Audio Code 23 for IEMs
CODE 23 is a representation of our persistence with pushing a single material to its fullest potential. Befitting of our 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 of levels.

1. Experience Effect Audio’s Flagship Copper.
The CODE series was created with its first product, CODE 51 to explore the extremities of the Silver Material. How much can we get out of the silver material? We 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 that is perfectly blended to provide for a marvelously detailed and crystal clear performance that passes our mark for a Flagship worthy Silver Cable.
Now, CODE 23 is the Copper equivalent of that.
2. Personal Love Letter to the Hardcore Audiophiles
On the other hand of the spectrum, we want 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 to a 100.
3. Our First Dual Application Cable
For the first time in our 14 years of cable making history, we are proud to introduce a cable where “headphone” is released as a standard option. CODE 23 will be suitable for both IEMs and headphones.
4. Probably the Thickest IEM Cable in the World
In the ideation stage for CODE 23, we knew we had to step out of our comfort zone and relook into the exact components that go into our cable’s engineering DNA. Pushing the boundaries of what we thought was previously not possible, we hammered down on one of the most critical factors of an audio cable - American Wire Gauge Size.
The focus this time round is on Sound and we are not afraid to break norms. After several rounds of multi-testing, we have managed to create a first whopping 16.5 AWG Effect Audio cable (10x Thicker than a standard 26AWG cable) that has a remarkably floor-low resistance.
5. Avant-garde Solid Core Effect Audio Cable
Applying a non-stranded wire structure has always been top of the list for us and now, to finally master and implement it in an impeccable system is a marvelous feat. A solid core cable is a more superior electrical conductor that provides a higher-level and stable electrical characteristics while being vibration and corrosion resistant. Being the first solid core cable in our history and one with technical advantage over others, CODE 23 will definitely excite and engage.
6. Optimal 13 Multi-core Bundle Cable Structure
A higher resolution sound can be perceived when a- perfect ratio of bundle cores to single wire is applied. After multiple rounds of relentless methodological experimentation, CODE 23 has an optimal positioning of 12 cores that intricately surrounds a single solid core.
7. Proprietary Multi-size Strands Blend
Sizing of wire strands affect how current is passed through and in simple words, a blend of different sizes will correlate to how each frequency band is affected. To achieve the sound that we deemed is perfect for CODE 23, a proprietary blend of multiple different size strands are implemented.
8. Full Fledge Interchangeable Modular System
Similar to the Cleopatra II, CODE 23 will spot both ConX and TermX interchangeable Connectors and Termination systems to allow for maximum versatility. You can now pair CODE 23 with your favourite DAPs and IEMs anytime, anywhere.

10. Subwoofer Effect Cable
A subwoofer produces the lowest of frequencies that can be felt and that’s the target for CODE 23. On top of a visceral punch and a strong sensorial bass, through CODE 23, listeners can expect to unlock the deepest dimensional rumble resulting in a more immersive auditory experience.
The flexibility this cable has to offer with regard to termination options is exceptional. Sound quality punches way above it's price point. The cable is thick and stiff, not very ergonomic if you're moving around, and also quite heavy. Quality is spectacular, I'm hoping I get accustomed to the ergonomic issues, which after a few weeks of usage it's still more of an annoyance.
