Aural Symphonics is designed, manufactured, sourced, and distributed with pride from the United States of America.

The performance and engineering incorporated in to our cable line has been and continues to be state of the art, which is years ahead of the competition. In current cable fashion, the competitive and crowded cable market shows very little excellence in design.

Aural Symphonics takes pride from building things, not confronting other companies' designs.
