Bostonears, Try using "NYLON BRAIDED SLEEVING", it is much softer.

Do you have a link to specific sleeving you're referring to?

 

Techflex multifilament sleeving that I used is nylon, and it's quite soft (described as "fabric-like").

 

Regular Techflex that's for sale most places is what they call Flexo PET, which is monofilament polyester. That stuff is very stiff. I would not recommend monofilament polyester sleeving for headphone cables, but it's fine for interconnects, speaker cables, and other wires that don't often get moved around.

Try using paracord or shoelaces :) 

I found a box at home from his shoes and discovered there spare laces, orange, very soft. I will use them to create interconnects, since they have a large diameter.

Paracord is braided nylon, but it doesn't have a hollow core. How would you run cables through it?

Nylon can be different for softness.

Unplait.

Here are selling textiles http://www.ebay.com/itm/Santa-Fe-Textiles-SF618-Spool-of-1-8-Heat-Shrink-Wire-Tubing-/140916987450?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20cf4e963a

 

 

I think it's easier to use shoelaces. They are a wide variety of colors and sizes. They are made of textiles.

What type of techflex is this? All the techflex on the sites I'm looking from looks a lot more plasticky. Is this just regular PET techflex?
