I have no personal experience with it.
Years ago, someone wrote me to tell me that it was "way better than Radio Shack hook-up wire", but unfortunately, that doesn't tell me a lot.
It should be noted that PFA "teflon" is the worst grade of teflon, well behind TFE and FEP types. Polypropylene is often considered to sound better than PFA teflon.
It also looks like there is little in the way of insulation thickness, which is good, less dielectric involvement then, BUT for headphone use, the wire may not be very sturdy, as the only strength it will have is due to the sheer silver metal. Even the thickest ga. at 22, will not be very strong, silver is soft when pure. It will be easy to kink, and thinner ga. will just be too weak for every day use.
