Nordost Heimdall 2 USB--1 Meter--in excellent shape. This was a great upgrade from the Blue Heaven USB and I now have further updated to the Tyr 2. I have had this for several months and upgraded when I found a Tyr 2 bargain. I have attended Nordost seminars where the direct AB: stock, Blue Heaven, Heimdall 2, Tyr 2 and SOTA Valhalla 2. The improvement is clear with each step... as is the price of admission. At asking price, you are getting the Heimdall at the Blue Heaven cost! Unfortunately, I do not have the original packaging but will securely pack and send by USPS with insurance within lower 48 for $15.00.
HEIMDALL 2 USB 2.0 CABLE
Improving upon Nordost’s Blue Heaven USB 2.0, the new Heimdall 2 USB 2.0 is the high-end digital cable that will deliver ones and zeroes with the efficiency and diligence necessary to maintain the correct impedance to dramatically lift your hifi system to a whole new level of performance.
Thanks to the experience acquired in the fabrication of successful products such as the Blue Heaven HDMI and USB 2.0 cables, Nordost can now 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 new Heimdall 2 USB 2.0 is now implementing 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.
