Candycords, a unique tangle-free family of coloured curly audio cables

This morning.

Luke Brennan (him off the telly and founder of MyVolts), writes:

MyVolts got tired of black cables and decided to inject some colour into the tabletop musician’s set-up, collaborating with one of Youtube’s most exciting producers, Rachel K Collier.

It started with a conversation with Rachel, who bemoaned the lack of a simple peach coloured cable. That conversation extended to purples and pinks, and then a mini-pallete of modern colours.

We then found that in order to obtain these bespoke colours, we needed to order 3km of each cable of the six colours. Over the year, we spoke further with Rachel and expanded into a full range of cables to justify the purchase of 18km of colourful cabling.

We managed a range of ten useful cables, from a basic straight to right angled minijack, right up to a pink curly guitar lead which expands from 1 to 4 meters without ever touching the ground. We’re very proud, we are so glad to hear that musicians we have shown them to have felt the same way.

We have them live and available on Kickstarter, in stock, and ready to ship in time for delivery before Christmas.

    Having recently through a head melting search for different coloured hdmi cables (for the convenience of looking behind the tele and knowing what’s what at a glance) I can appreciate what’s been done here :)

    Fair dues!

      Piece of coloured tape on both ends does the trick. That or white tape with a number on it as well.

      I spent years in IT working on switches and patch panels, some of which appeared to have been put in by lunatics with colour blindness.

      So yeah, fair dues, this is a pretty (emphasis on the pretty!) good way to unclutter your cabling and simplify stuff, best of luck to them with it.

        Ah, of course :) My fastidiousness prevented me from seeing the simplistic solution!
        I’d just changed the TV for the first time in 20 years… My PC screen was bigger that the TV!
        Anyway, I was looking to future proof all the cables and went down a rabbit hole on hdmi cable specs and the massive variation in prices whether certified HDMI 2.1 or not.

        For what it’s worth… Kenable cables do certified HDMI 2.1 cables of various lengths and coloured ends at the most reasonable prices and can be bought direct from their UK website or on Amazon.

        Be wary of some cable manufacturers who will get, say, just one cable colour or length certified and not all the other lengths and colours in their range… I sent a few back!

      Only if you can convince it that the pink is arterial pink.

      Green is for gangrene and red is of course for blood.

      Orange is for intravenous orange fizzy sherbert, a known mainstay of death metalists the world over.

      The amount of Deathalists we’ve lost to the evils of sherbert injecting may never be truly known.
