What manufactures make a USB cable that separates the power from the signal in a single wire?

Logically from a technical point of view it makes sense that you would want the power element separate from the signal element to reduce/eliminate as much interference as possible in the signal.

Brands/models that use this design?

Thanks, in advance,

Go "local" with Audio Sensibility. Plus, Steve is a really great guy. I bought his USB Statement Silver and it is an amazing cable. Switched back to Belkin one evening just to test I'm not buying into the cable hype, and it was like someone pulled a curtain over my speakers. No comparison.

Thanks for the replies so far, so to recap their are two options Wireworld or Audio Sensibility.

The Wireworld ULTRAVIOLET 7 and the Audio Sensibility Impact SE are at least affordable options.

Any others?

Separate pairs for data and power is standard. Bluejeans cables have the very best cables and quality control with extensive testing of all of their products. Not to mention very realistic pricing - no foo here. I have never had a reason to doubt that their products meet or exceed and standards.

Ummmmmm...Obviously they are different wires lol. I don't think that is what the OP is looking for. I believe he is looking for a cable where they are completely physically separated from one another in a separate run entirely

Also, quality control, testing "foo" and all that jazz aren't the topic here.

The DATA+ and DATA- pair are spec'd as a shielded pair.

I use a Siltech classic anniversary USB cable, outstanding performance in my system. I believe they have the power line running along the side, separated, but still in the inner sleeve. The extremely well regarded audience au24, another outstanding performer, is designed with the separate line as well. If memory serves, the curious cable does this also, along with the cardas clear. There are a bunch of them out there.
