Our Verdict 
It's got some good attributes, but we feel this Ixos needs more authority to really shine
For 
Lively sound
good detailing
sweet midrange
Against 
Tonally bright
needs more bass authority
Reviewed on

With its flexible jacket, the Ixos XHS-513 looks the business, although the two-piece banana plugs slackened each time we changed the cable.

Ergonomics notwithstanding, this lead offers a lively, excitable sound that would pep up any dull system.

There's a sweet midrange, and a decent amount of detail – especially with percussion. However, it's tonally bright and lacks a degree of authority in the bass.
