Features


Supports up to 4K UltraHD (4096 x 2160 pixels) resolution

To help get the best picture from your 4K source.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) Pass-Through

To significantly increase the range of both color and contrast, which creates an even more vibrant and realistic picture.

Solid core 0.25% silver-plated conductor

To eliminate electrical and magnetic strand interaction and reduce noise. Provides much of the benefit of solid silver, reducing distortion and digital timing errors.

Triple Shielded Conductors/Solid Metal Connector Shell

Ensures signal integrity by protecting against EMI and RFI.

Directionality

Fabricating metal conductors causes a directional grain structure. By controlling the resulting small impedance variation at Radio Interference frequencies, the cable can drain noise away from where it will cause distortion.

Certified for in-wall installation

For flexible installation options.

Lifetime limited warranty

Lifetime repair or replacement in cases of defect.

Hard-cell foam (HCF) insulation

For long-lasting use.

    The best HDMI cable

    This HDMI cable is the strongest and most compact HDMI cable on the market. The connections are heavy duty and the cord is very durable. These HDMI cables are worth every penny because they LAST and deliver superb video signal quality. It’s made my ps4 pro, 4K blue ray player and my 4K display lightening fast and super smooth. There’s no lagging and I now have fast video downloads. The video quality is vastly improved compared to a regular standard hdmi that I was using before. I know that I’m outputting the highest video quality possible with these cables and that makes me very happy with this purchase.

    I bought recently LG OLED55C6P TV. I am using comcast cable. I bought 3 different HDMI cables to see which cable provide me the best quality. 1) Rocketfish™ - 4K Ultra HD 2) AudioQuest - Ocean 4K Ultra HD 3) AudioQuest - Sky 4K Ultra HD HDMI Cable As I was using comcast cable which doesn't supply 4k content. There was not much difference with all three. But with Blu ray player by playing 4k contents it make a difference. Definitely AudioQuest - Sky 4K Ultra HD was better quality then others. But if you don't have 4k contents then Rocketfish™ - 4K Ultra HD is good enough.

    This cable, is not "4k". Any Hdmi cable is 4k. I purchased a dollar hdmi and works perfect. This aquaquest should not be in the tv sections, it should be in the computer sections, this is a false claim that itll work "better" than cheap hmdi cables. This is only good if youre planning to connect multiple monitors or multiple computers, then when its alot of data passing throught the cable you see it work, if this has insulation etc that is for multiple gaming/pc connections. Dont spend your money if your not well informed.

      You are correct in that any cable that can handle 18gbps can be regarded as a "4K/60" cable but it is NOT true to say that "any HDMI cable is 4K." Ocean is absolutely fully compatible with 4K/60. audioquest

    There seems to be two camps about the high speed HDMI cable issue; cheap cables are all you need or expensive ones are the way to go. I spent quite a bit of time looking at both sides and decided to go with these thinking I could return them if I couldn't tell the difference. I can tell the difference. The sound and picture are better, at least to my eyes and ears. My wife thinks I'm a little off center because I really like a theater experience and work on it within our small budget but she even said Wow what did you do everything looks and sounds better! Just my two cents

    Excellent connection

    I was having intermittent video/audio dropouts from a mid to high end PC with Nvidia 1070 Geforce to a new Onkyo Receiver. Then receiver to TV. It was like the basic HDMI cable I had was losing bandwidth and/or the HDCP 2.2 handshake process. I decided to try 2 new Ocean (4' HDMI from receiver to TV, 8' HDMI from PC to receiver). 10 hours in, not one intermittent dropout between both connections. It was a persistent problem that now seems to have been eliminated. The better quality HDCP 2.2 UHD 4K HDMI seems to have done the trick!

    Buy the best you can afford

    This cable was the length I needed but paying twice as much gave me pause. I was told that it would provide a much better connection from the cable TV DVR to my new 4K TV. The Best Buy salesperson made sense when she said the silver in the cable would convey signals better and the upscaling from the DVR to the TV would be improved. Though cable TV cannot deliver 4K quality, she convinced me that this better cable would give me the best picture I could expect from my DVR. I've always heard that with tools (and now cables) buy the best you can afford because cheaper ones will usually disappoint you.

    Are all 4K Ultra HD HDMI Cables Equal??

    I purchased the AudioQuest - Ocean 8' 4K Ultra HD In-Wall HDMI Cable to connect an UHD external devise to my UHD TV and soundbar. It worked as intended and appears to be well constructed. However, a somewhat less expensive UHD HDMI cable would have probably done the job. I must assume someone with higher data transfer demands would get more value out of this purchase. With that said, I can't blame the AudioQuest - Ocean 8' 4K Ultra HD In-Wall HDMI Cable because I purchased more transfer capacity than needed.

    From the salesman and assistant manager who supervised our product selections to the installers, we had to change cables three times. Moreover, the technicians (it took 3 service calls) did not know what they were doing. We had purchased the 4 ' according to the salesman. Then, the first set of technicians had us return it for an 8 '. The third set of technicians said they needed a 12 '. We paid for the new upgrade for Total Tech support. After 25+ years using Best Buy, it was the worst service we have ever received.
