I think it's going to be a fake Audioquest one from the "DBS range"...
Aliexpress has plenty of them for sale.

There's loads of information regarding Audioquests DBS system, which a quick Google will help with. For what it's worth, I've tried Audioquests Water XLR I/C with the DBS system and it worked really well but was a little too polite for my tastes.

They make great cables, however, I personally wouldn't touch anything from Ali Express because I couldn't guarantee it was of similar quality. YMMV of course and I'm not knocking Chinese made equipment as I'm sure alot of hi-end brands use Chinese factories. Just use sensible caution as the material used might not be that great.

Just wondered what they do I've only ever seen normal cable
