High end copper cables in a class of their own
Building on Eletech's extensive experience and expertise in research and development, the "Socrates" was born from the relentless pursuit of the purity and extremity of a single material - copper. Unsurpassed in its class, the "Socrates" breaks the preconceived stereotypes of copper and manifests itself in a reference quality of copper that expresses emotions and texture.
Building on the experience gained in the development of "Plato "and" Iliad "were collected, Eletech has again dealt with HiFi-proven copper cables and materials and captured the essence of a high-performance copper cable.
Eletech has left the puristic approach in the development of this product behind and behind Determined to achieve flagship copper performance while having the ability to repeat emotions, technical characteristics and stereo imaging.
"Eletech chose to go after their perfect copper cable. To offer something fresh and unique. With Socrates they have absolutely nailed it in my opinion. I really like the hardware design that Eletech pushes with every release. It's great to see a manufacturer to go the extra mile and do something unique with their cables. "
"I usually like to“ preach ”that cable shouldn't have a drastic EQ-like effect on the sound, but after testing Socrates I'm starting to question that. Maybe not as drastic, but I do hear a consistent change affecting the sound of upper mids being more forward, more revealing, and more focused.
It was quite noticeable in V-shaped tuned IEMs where pair up with Socrates shifted the perception of the sound toward a more W-shaped balanced sig. There was also a change with additional sub-bass rumble and more control in mid-bass having a little shorter decay. Another consistent change I noticed was relative to soundstage, also focused around upper mids / vocals, stretching them wider from left to right. "
"Deep and bold yet controlled bass, Defined vocals, Pleasing treble body, Wide soundstage, Excellent build quality and design, Wide synergy."
"Socrates dives into the heartland of Hi-Fi and delivers a heart-stopping performance from a classic material. Socrates delivers on its initial promise, being one of the few flag-bearers of high-end copper cables, a segment that should, by now, command some respect. "
