There is no beginning and no end for his being. He sets the order. He selects life. He is the weaver of the web of all destiny. Staring at the World Tree holding up nine realms.

Whoever can find it will be able to understand the ultimate rules of how the world works and obtain the supreme glory.

Design Process

CNC crafting technology has been used to restore the steep Scandinavian mountain silhouettes, being sculptured by the cold glaciers in thousands of years. The natural spinel inlaid in the middle is made of bare stone after grinding and polishing, cut into a pear shape, which shines brightly on the top of the mountain, and is processed by different processes such as sandblasting, hand polishing on each edge surface.

"The Orlog colors the sound by enhancing the mid-bass, lower mid-range, imaging, and separation. The Orlog carries the hallmarks of a traditional copper cable which mainly focuses on the mid-bass and lower mid-range given that this is its main cable material however there is a little extra spice in the other regions due to the various types of plating and additional silver material composition."

"The best part about Orlog is the fact that it increases the details and enhances the treble region. Meteor with its stock cable has a dark-ish tone to the highs, but wit the Orlog, it’s much more livelier and energetic. No, it isn’t sharp or boomy even with other IEMs that I have tested it with, so the treble response is nicely enhanced. Midrange sounds rich and has improved texture for vocals. Although the vocals get a tad bit soft with the Orlog, no they don’t lose their resolution, they are still crystal clear, they just sound smoother. I would say, Orlog has a great impact in the upper mids and lower-treble region. The clarity and definition is improved, yet the presentation is smooth and soft."

"In addition to sound quality and aesthetics, pricing and value for money carry a lot of weight for me. Not only have Kinera delivered a cable that both sounds and looks excellent, but they have also delivered it at a price that is far below comparable sounding cables on the market. The Kinera Orlog has paired well with all of the IEMs I have tried it with and there have been some exceptional pairings with sets like the UM Multiverse Mentor. It is a light and supple cable that is finished with high-quality hardware and when this is all combined with very reasonable pricing, the Kinera Orlog gets a strong recommendation from me. I’ve been very impressed with Kinera in all my communications with them so far. They are a growing brand who are eager for feedback from the audiophile community so they can produce products that will be appreciated and I look forward to seeing what comes next from them. "

"Given what I've seen and heard, the Orlog is a special cable made to harness true sound and to help excel the potential of the high achieving IEMs. Your opinion of value will play a big role in determining whether the prices things are offered at are worthwhile. Personally, I think it's a large expenditure that isn't necessary, and paying that much money for a cable that costs as much as the most expensive IEM I own puts me in a tricky situation. If it were on sale and significantly reduced, or if I had saved money specifically to get the one cable I want to pair with every IEM I own, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase such a remarkable cable. Hence, I can only speak to the prowess of this cable, which I considered to be beautiful, spectacular, and worth listening with when I recommend such a remarkable relation. The sole cable I could find that adjusts and curates the sound you enjoy listening to."

"For me, the cable had a balanced sound signature, with both upper and lower lows being prominent and providing enough thump when compared to Szalayi and Isabellae's stock cable. The lows have been refined and clean. Isabellae is known for its overblown lows, but this cable changed everything. The clarity and transient lows made it sound more musical than boomy. Galileo also made significant improvements in this category, and the bespoke EA cable for the AK Odyssey defeated Orlog. I know it's unfair to compare the two, but Orlog works well with the majority of IEMs, whereas the AK Odyssey stock cable doesn't work well (sound-wise) with all IEMs. Finally, the sub-low rumble is well-managed and nimble."

"Overall, the Kinera x Effect Audio Orlog is a great cable with some really exquisite material. The fact that it comes with ConX, makes it a versatile cable that can be used with IEMs of different connector types. The Orlog pretty much brings out the best of the IEM in terms of staging and dynamics. Since the cable is somewhat dark in terms of sound, it would complement bright / neutral-sounding IEMs very well."

"The ORLOG comes with much looked for flexibility of switching between 2 pin and MMCX connections owing to the conX technology. The build & quality is also praiseworthy. I have found the performance significantly better than the other 3rd party upgrade cables I have tried. It is more like a single cable serves most IEMs and therefore becomes an easy recommendation for anyone using IEMs of $1000++ ranges."
