Enhance your speaker cable connection, with the top quality Chord Ohmic 4mm banana plugs.

Ohm’s law

Science hats on everybody! Ohm’s law states that better conductivity means lower resistance and, therefore, less signal loss. Less signal loss means increased performance. Taking this science on board, Chord Company have introduced the Ohmic plug.

What no gold?
Rediscovering Ohm’s law meant Chord switched from gold plating their speaker plugs to silver plate. Silver outperforms gold in terms of conductivity, meaning lower resistance and, hence, less signal loss. By happy coincidence, many of the Chord Company speaker cables also use silver-plating, thereby keeping the material consistent throughout the amp to speaker link.

Quality finish
As you’d expect from this leading cable manufacturer, the Ohmic 4mm Banana plugs are finished to the highest standards. A plug spring-pin ensures a tight fit and the sleeves are engineered to last.

Get the best connection, with the Chord Company Ohmic speaker plugs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chord OHMIC Speaker Plugs Still running in my Wharfedale Evo 4.4 speakers, but so far the Chord cables and OHMIC plugs sound incredible! Will be testing Chord's Signature bi-wire speaker links as soon as this coronavirus pandemic is over... very excited about that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Bought these with AudioQuest Rocket 11 cable and can’t believe the difference. Overall hi-fi quality improved significantly (especially on the low end). Was sceptical about the silver when recommended in store but these are truly great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Banana plugs I needed high quality banana plugs for my Monitor Audio Silver 200 speakers. These Chord plugs are ideal and were easy to solder.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I needed This is actually not a review of the product, rather the decision to sell them to me. I have never used them before and I told the shop exactly what equipment I had, and these were recommended. However, on getting them home I found I had to strip them off because I couldn’t use them with my amp. My speakers also do not have the female plugs, but I managed to put the plugs rather awkwardly through the connection posts - doesn’t look great. So, a waste of money for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fitted only by limited number of chord dealers I bought these having read the impressive technical specs. At purchase I noticed that they could only be fitted by an authorised chord with the proprietary chord co crimping tool. What I didn’t check was which chord co dealers have them. My nearest one doesn’t do the fitting as they only stock high end preterminated cables. I should have known better than to buy these as there are no demonstrable technical advantages to proprietary connection methods over standardised ones, however, the proprietary ones do lock customers into dealing with chords own dealers and I have no doubt that this is main reason that they invested r and d in reintroducing a problem that has been fixed for decades. The chord co do have a list of dealers who they say fit these, which is not accurate. I have no intention of wasting my. valuable time in ringing them all to work out who can fit them. Unless you live next door to one of the dealers that can fit these or the chord co factory itself, you are going to have to factor for the shipping costs of getting cables to someone to fit these. With these costs included, these plugs become grossly overpriced in comparison to other products. Turning to the technical claims, they seem valid. However, notice the absence of data that shows that the human ear can detect any difference between gold and silver banana plugs. The likely reason is that the human ear can’t do this and therefore such data doesn’t exist. In summary, factor for the costs of fitting before buying and make your own mind up about whether a the improved conductivity of silver over gold is of any value in terms of real world listening experience. I’m off to buy a set of plugs that I can fit myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality banana plugs. I bought two pairs of banana plugs to connect my speakers to my wall plugs. They feel good quality and were easy to solder. The black ones need a different solder style to the red ones (not sure why).
