well assuming the adapter is 1/3ft long, the cost of the cable is about $2, the 3.5mm plug about $5 depending on the brand, the protector female is about $3 to $10, depending if it needs a casing or not ( like the whiplash one) and maybe another $1 for heatshrink, sleeving, and whatnot. estimate shipping at $5, the total is about $20 give or take abit. pm me if you're interested.

I have my phones set up so I can run them balanced or with an adapter, single ended and it works great. The adapter is small, as a portable should be, but no sacrifice in sound.

yea, i agree with you on that, small but no sacrifice in sound. i haven't tried the mundorf wires before, but i hope that they are decent enough to achieve that.

Just would like to add that the Whiplash cables are absolutely fantastic. Feel WORLDS better than the Null Audio and display a higher level of workmanship.

I am using some special silver wire at 99.99995 purity for my adapters. I love this small stuff (balanced connectors) as you get great sound but no real bulk and still truly portable but with fabulous sound.

Hey guys,

For those using JH13s with their Protector, are you using the low or mid gain setting?

I gotta get me some balanced cables ASAP. ( :

I tend to use medium gain for everything. I have used high gain for the HD650's when I played them loud and there was still about half of the volume control unused. The low gain also works fine for the JH13's and on this or medium I get no hiss at all.

I'm using the low setting.

Thanks gents.

I have another question if you wouldn't mind. I contacted Whiplash Audio through the website about purchasing a balanced cable. I have not received a response. Should I contact someone from Whiplash directly?

I would guess that you sent them an email? How long ago did you contact Whiplash? I know they are getting many orders so I bet they are a little backed up. I don't remember if there is a phone number. Try another email with information requested for order in the subject line.

Thank you jamato8. Will do.

I was listening for like 8 hrs yesterday with balanced HD650 and I was very happy on low setting.

Low gain with my uDAC and my iPod Touch. (Can't wait to try the amp with the Audio-GD DAC-19DSP )

Ooh, I want to get an Audio-GD DAC19 soon. It's next on the list.
