Our Approach

As a former Sennheiser Applications Engineer, musician and long-time audiophile, James Serdechny has worked extensively with Sennheiser, HiFiMan, Audez’e, AKG, Beyerdynamic, B&W and Grado headphones. For years he designed various cables for audiophile recording studios. Developing audiophile and high-end cables for headphone systems became a priority when it became apparent that the manufacturer’s stock cable was the primary cause of significant degradation to the headphone performance.

After a three-year research and development program fueled by over 30 years of experience with headphone systems, which included an exhausting number of headphone cable designs, the Stefan AudioArt line of headphone cables were born.

Stefan AudioArt produces true high-end headphone cables handcrafted to the highest standard using constantly evolving innovative designs. Each cable and the associated connector undergo an extensive proprietary contact enhancing treatment before and after assembly. The process is designed to eliminated a majority of the degrading effects the non-conductive surfaces of the cable and connectors have on the audio signal. The process adds several hours to the assembly time and considerable cost to the overall assembly. Thus, Stefan AudioArt’s internal and external cable designs and extensive connector modifications (including two options which eliminate the harmful effects of the connector shell all together – wood shells and Alchem connector) are far beyond the performance of all the other “off the shelf ” cables and connectors which are assembled in a DYI fashion by lesser manufacturers. You will hear an even greater difference our cables make as their potential will be fully experienced if two very important areas – properly designed headphone system cables and vibration control are addressed in your system.

As a result, two levels of Stefan AudioArt headphone system cables are available. The E-Series and the Endorphin will transmit the audio signal from the source to the headphone with impact, definition and realism and remain unmatched by any other headphone cable manufacturer in the world.

The E-Series retains the best characteristics of the Equinox audiophile headphone cable and builds upon them offering improved performance and comfort. As a result the E-series offers the biggest step-up from the stock cable and considerably improves the headphone’s performance offering great balance with much deeper insight into the music along with increased clarity, definition and impact of bass, mids and high frequencies. The sound-stage will also significantly improve both in width and depth.

The Endorphin will do all of the above and in addition introduce a very noticeable rich and pure musicality that can best be described as if the equipment generating the music has been completely removed from the process of reproducing the sound. With a high-performance headphone, this experience is very close to pure, live sound. The Endorphin is sonically the best headphone cable available.
