Ixos XHS-513

Tested at £8

It's got some good attributes, but we feel this Ixos needs more authority to really shine

  • Lively sound
  • good detailing
  • sweet midrange


  • Tonally bright
  • needs more bass authority

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.
