This cable is in mint condition as our client moved to the Tyr2 USB cable. Lesser cables  transmit less of the data and will sound less natural, we would say “it’s less detailed when listening”. You don’t need to strain to hear it, once you do its quite apparent. If there are less data errors sent to the DAC… this will improve the sound and the Heimdall 2 USB delivers. Not to mention the superior RFI and EMI shielding, this makes a very large improvement sonically as well. Mike @ Audio Two

Improving upon Nordost’s Blue Heaven USB 2.0, the Heimdall 2 USB 2.0 will dramatically lift your hifi system to a whole new level of performance, delivering those ones and zeroes with the efficiency and diligence necessary to maintain the correct impedance.

Thanks to the experience acquired in the fabrication of successful products such as the Blue Heaven HDMI and USB 2.0 cables, Nordost can further refine digital leads through its most current, proprietary technology. The Heimdall 2 USB 2.0 is constructed from 4 x 20 AWG stranded, silver-plated 99.99999% OFC conductors, arranged in a precise, twisted double helix in order to ensure character impedance, reduce noise and minimize cross-talk contamination. In order to increase dielectric, the conductors are suspended in Nordost’s proprietary FEP Dual Mono-Filament, which is newly optimized to increase flexibility and mechanical damping. Add a dual layer silver foil jacket and silver braided shield and the Heimdall 2’s extreme data transmission speeds surpass the USB 2.0 standards.

To further up the ante, the Heimdall 2 USB 2.0 implements mechanically tuned lengths. This technique, used in Nordost’s Odin, Norse 2 and Valhalla 2 ranges, reduces internal microphonics and high-frequency impedance resonance, which ultimately allows you to enjoy the dynamics, coherence and balance of live music played in the comfort of your own listening room.
