If you’ve made the investment in good quality speaker cable, don’t forget the plugs! The QED Airloc Metal 4mm banana plugs offer a low resistance connection and are built to last.

The QED Airloc Metal banana plugs are custom designed to work with the QED X-Tube technology cables but also work well with other brands of multi-strand speaker cable, too. When fitted with a special crimping device, they create an airtight seal for a long-lasting, quality connection. With a metal sleeve and gold-plated connection, they are every bit the high quality item you'd expect from QED.

Fit the plugs that your quality speaker cable deserves and enjoy a long-lasting connection, with the QED Airloc Metal plugs.

Please note, as these plugs need a special tool to be fitted, they are only available in our stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They ooze quality I have had these fitted to my custom cables. A joy to connect to my amp and speakers. You can tell they are quality and the sound is amazing. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid quality plugs! I've had these about a week and didn't realise they required a special tool to crimp them but the Cardiff shop were able to terminate the cables for me. I got to say they're quality plugs, feel solid and look great. Found them less stiff to plug in than the chord ohmic as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easiest way to make connection These are the most convenient and foolproof way to connect up your speakers, they make safe and solid contact removing that frayed end of wire and under or over tightened threaded nuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best speakers we've ever had Bought speakers from the Cambridge Shop (Pual was a very patient salesman) . We listened to several different speakers in the shop. We got great advice and good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Qed airloc 4mm metal plugs I love the qed airloc metal 4mm banana plugs they make my music sound awesome

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great plugs! High quality! Solid product! Really nice plugs made with what looks like premium materials. Love to know if they do a right-angled version as they stick out a bit and maybe an issue if space is a premium. Also, if you’re using these with bookshelf speakers on say Atacama stands that have a hidden cable tube, it will be worth running the cables through the tubes BEFORE terminating with these plugs. These plugs have to be fixed onto the cables with a special tool and cannot be removed without cutting the cable. Really good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to quality speaker cable These banana plugs fit much better than my old Cambridge Audio ones, making it much easier to connect my speakers to my amp (no more worrying about loose wire), and it also means I don't have to keep tightening them every so often. I particularly recommend them if you have thick speaker cable like the QED XT40.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent new speaker cable Spoke with Kirt over the phone at the Prestwich Branch about some advice on new speaker cable. Had them made up instore, awesome upgrade to my system!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite bananas ! Tom at R S Oxford fitted these for me on to Chord Clearway Cables to connect with my new Dali Zensor 3s ....other end is barewire to an ageing Yamaha AX-392 amp. The source is a new Onkyo C-7030 player. It's a upgrade to a second system in a small room. I am very pleased indeed with the overall result. The QED bananas play their part. Philip

Rated 5 out of 5 by from QED XT40 speaker cable I was using some rather aged, albeit high quality at the time (1982), speaker cables from my 851N/851W combination to Focal Aria 936 speakers. Although the sound was good, something was missing. So I bought two 8m lengths of XT40 speaker cable with Airlock banana plugs. Very noticeable sound difference. Much punchier and more controlled sound with better bass. This cable is quite thick/chunky and suitable for long runs such as I wanted. I am very pleased with the difference this investment has made to my system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cable Got this cable to go from my arcam solo to my audio monitor silver speakers. Really happy with it. The guys at richer sounds crimped all the plugs on for me. So just had to plug and go. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prompt and efficient help I needed a new QED airlock fitted to a speaker cable end as the original had broken. I went to the Newcastle store after contacting them, and the repair was undertaken there and then. It was really great to be able to just walk in to the shop and have the repair done so quickly. It's as good as new.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for money I have already used these plugs in another system in the past. They are of good quality and, though they are not the best products in their field, at their price point they are highly competitive. If you want reasonably priced banana plugs, these are the ones to go for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from speaker cables/plugs To be honest, I was dubious of the difference new cables and plugs would make to my experience. I have to say, i have been amazed. Clarity, "punch" and general sound quality have been significantly improved. If, like me, you're wondering whether to spend more on your cables than you did on your amp, don't hesitate - it's money well spent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Airloc plugs do the job they were paid for... Airloc plugs supplied (and fitted, thanks) by Richer Sounds Liverpool. Great service as usual and great advice, as usual. Been buying stuff from them since the early 1980's. Used the first shop at London Bridge and been using them ever since for all my Hi-Fi stuff.
