The Fog City Audio Story

In January 2021, Fog City Audio was founded in San Francisco, California.

Prior to starting Fog City Audio, I enjoyed 20+ years in the consumer and commercial electronics industry.  I held various roles including sales, system design, training, and custom installation. 

I started building cables after I found that the stock and available aftermarket cables were lacking and not to my preferences.  

I believe that a quality cable should add to your enjoyment of the music (or at least not get in the way). The cables included with headphones seem like they were an afterthought for the manufacturers at their best, torture devices at their worst.

While I do not make claims that my cables will magically transform bad recordings to perfection, they will help you to avoid the common “cable problems”:

  • Retention of their coiled shape
  • Rigid and won't lay flat
  • Too heavy 
  • Too long / Too short
  • Wrong connection for my amplifier
  • Looks boring / Doesn’t match my mechanical keyboard/desk setup

Each cable is built by hand to your specifications upon order.  I offer a high level of customization with a turnaround time people have come to expect in the modern world.  Most orders are completed and shipped the next business day.

I offer products built with Mogami copper cable and Cardas Audio’s Pure Copper Litz cable.   

Mogami is the cable that is most commonly used in professional recording studios around the world.  

Cardas is world renowned amongst discerning audiophiles.  

I am a "Star Seller" on Etsy with well over 600 5 Star reviews.
I also am a longtime seller on eBay (FogCityAudio) with 100% positive feedback.

Additions to my product line-up such as Cardas, and the many supported models started off as a customer’s “one off” request.  What will you ask me to build for you?
