German translation:only background, not an answer
Explanation:
The leads run parallel so that the cable insulation can be easily split as far up the cable as necessary to reach sockets or connections not directly next to each other. It is similar to an old-fashioned lamp cord but with much more highly-developed conductors and conductor insulation, normally also with an outer jacket.

This site does not translate the term.

"Belden Electronics GmbH aus Neuss bietet ein neues Zweikanal-Audio-Kabel als Zip-Cord-Konstruktion für Stereo-Audio-Applikationen an. Das Produkt mit der Bezeichnung "1504A" der Brilliance-Serie ist mit einem l9litzigen AWG-22-Leiter und einem PVC-Außenmantel bestückt."

Here are some definition sites, unfortunately only in English:

http://glossary.its.bldrdoc.gov/fs-1037/dir-040/_5934.htm

"zip-cord: In optical communications, a two-fiber cable consisting essentially of two single-fiber cables having their jackets conjoined by a strip of jacket material. Note 1: This name is borrowed from electrical terminology referring to lamp cord. As with lamp cord, optical zip-cord may be easily furcated by slitting or tearing the two jackets apart, permitting the installation of optical connectors. Note 2: Zip-cord cables include both loose-buffer and tight-buffer designs. [FAA]"

"Double pair cables are available in a round construction (8723) or in a ZIP cord style (1504A) for easy separation in two-channel stereo and audio hook ups."

This is only background, not an answer because I can offer no German term.
