Wow, this thread started almost a decade and 1000 posts ago!

 

To review: An analog unbalanced interconnect has four important factors.

 

1] Robust connectors that will have repeated good contacts.

2] Very low end to end resistance of the shield/return conductor.

then

3] Good shielding.  In a world that has more and more interference, this is increasing in importance.

finally

4] Low capacitance, this is not about the cable but about components that are not designed to deal witc capacitive loads.

For anyone in Denmark:

 

All the techflex your heart desires. F6-Quiet they say is cottonsoft and recommended for audio cables. http://www.techflex.dk/shop/flexo-f6-quiet-76c1.html. They also have heatshrink etc.

I am about to build a guitar patch cable.  I've got plenty of experience with cables but had one particular question.  It uses a 1/4" TS connector (I'm using Neutrik connectors on Canare GS6 cable) and will naturally see pretty hard use compared to my hi-fi cables.  I'm debating whether to apply heatshrink or not and I see 3 options:

 

1) Apply no heatshrink (keeps everything easy to repair if I ever need to fix something)

2) Apply heatshrink over cable and barrel of connector(most rugged but need to do more work to repair it if ever required)

3) Apply heatshrink on cable but inside the the barrel of the connector.  (Looks kinda ugly IMO but may be best balance of access and ruggedness)

Would making an interconnect like this be applicable for headphones? I'm going to buy an HD25 soon and would like to make a 3.5mm to Senn Proprietary connector
