Nordost’s Heimdall 2 cables are the first tier in our mid-range, Norse 2 family. Using the same core design as our entry-level products, Heimdall 2 cables maintain consistency with the Leif ranges. This continuity ensures similar sonic signatures between our cables, allowing for a seamless transfer as one upgrades throughout Nordost’s lines.
In addition to the already impressive core design, Heimdall 2 cables use innovative techniques and technologies that were first seen in the acclaimed and much sought after Valhalla and Odin ranges. Advances such as Dual Mono-Filament technology and mechanically tuned lengths as well as specially designed, proprietary MoonGlo connectors all make appearances throughout the Heimdall 2 range. Just by taking the first step into the Norse 2 family you will notice significant differences in your sound. With the switch of even one cable you’ll hear banal recordings transform into high fidelity performances.
Offering the most variety of any of our extensive product lines, Heimdall 2 cables run the gamut including power, speaker, interconnect, personal audio cables and more. Each cable in the Heimdall 2 range provides clarity, definition and detail to sound that is otherwise unheard of in this price range.
"The Heimdall gives a strong sense of scale and authority, but without adding the sort of mass and inertia which drags a system down... Tiny inflections are also better resolved, most obviously in vocals but also noticeable elsewhere. This means performances that are carefully weighted and nuanced can be more affectingly portrayed."
– Steve Dickinson, Hi-Fi+
“The speed of the Heimdall 2 loom was clearly apparent on the drum and cymbal strikes, as well as with the quick piano keys and strings – crisp, clear, yet always maintaining their finesse, with a smooth and naturally warm character. Bass depth was well extended and tight down into the lowest region. The Heimdall 2 had me convinced here of its masterful ability to bring together complexity & nuance with vigor & musicality.”
— George de Sa, NOVO
“The Heimdall 2 is that kind of upgrade – indispensable once you’ve experienced it.”
— Marc Mickelson, The Audio Beat
“…a definite step-up from what the Blue Heaven Tonearm Cable+ was capable of. With the Heimdall 2 Tonearm Cable+, the music appeared more immediate and distinctly layered while remaining remarkably cohesive."
