Ixos XHS523-100M review

Well put together, but not worth the price premium Tested at £4.99

Our Verdict

Sounds fine – until you demo similarly priced wires from the likes of QED and Wireworld

For

  • Detailed and dynamic

Against

  • Bass is loose
  • timing's off

Like its cheaper sibling the XHS223, this cable feels well put together, but for a single wire of its price we were hoping for better performance. Its detail and dynamics are reasonably good, but the treble is splashy, the bass is a tad loose, and timing's not perfect either. Frankly, you can do better.
