The two cores are twisted to a pair with a screen of Aluminium-PET foil. PBT (diameter 3,5 mm), applied for insulation. Wrapping is with a polyester web. Bending radius amounts to 10 times the outer diameter without tension and 15 times the outer diameter with tension. The audio cable fulfils American standard AWG 24/7.
