They break, they short and their tips get loose, fall out, don't make contact. Heavy duty Paramount cords feature doubly insulated, heavy gauge wire for strength. Wires within the cords are positioned in parallel to eliminate twisting, knotting, kinking, and breaking, and they're individually stranded and tinned for maximum conductivity. Cord coils keep their spring and elasticity through years of use.These PC Tips are stronger, too. Made of molded plastic with conductors wrapped between metal and nylon bushings, they permit the PC to rotate 360 degrees without breaking. Paramount tips seat solidly for reliable contact.Paramount PC construction represents a significant improvement over traditional soldered connectors, which are brittle and often break. The heavy metal construction on the PC's resists splitting.
