FOUND -Can you make me a LOD and fix my headphone cord? - will pay $$$

Hello DIY'ers - 2 requests.

I am hoping to spend about $50-$60 total for these two requests - feel free to tell me to go suck eggs if i am low balling, given what i am requesting.  

1.Can someone make me an Ipod touch (3rd gen) LOD for around $40

Here is what I have in mind

  • total CORD length - twenty four inches (2 feet)
  • copper or black cable color - copper color preferred
  • cable doesnt need to be a super cryo pure silver, dipped in holy water blah blah blah.. just something sturdy that wont break and isnt crap.
  • braided like the ibasso or the super slim lod shown below would be nice but not necessary
  • quality copper or silver plated copper wire is fine.
  • i dont want the cord to be stiff.. it should be able to wrap it around my hand.  strength and durability are important though
  • this ibasso (right photo) has a nice cord..if that braided style could be done flexibly and still be braided, that would be perfect
  • overall durability is a must.

 

  • black low profile ipod plug if possible - similar or the same as the fiio or super slim lod shown below. i dont want the cord coming out the side though. i would want it coming out the back like the fiio
  • the 1/8" plug should be as short as possible.. the super slim (middle photo) is great..that length without the angle would be even better. angled would be ok but not preferred
  • the overall idea is to use this with an ipod touch/JH3A - to make both plugs as low profile and slim as possible so they dont stick out much at all, and to have an overall good quality, durable LOD that will last.
  • as far as slimness, this one looks good, but i wouldnt want the cord coming out of the side, or the angled plug. 

 

so to summarize - transplant the fiio's ipod pin adaptor, the super slim's 1/8" adaptor (or straight plug with super small size), the ibasso's cord type and style but longer, and thats what i want.

another way to put this is take the ibasso, make both adaptor ends about half their lengths, and lengthen the cord.

2. headphone cord fix

i have a pair of sennheiser px100 and the 1/8" plug has broken.  I have chopped it off so the end is just the wire.  I need someone to put a new 1/8 plug on it.  something slim similar to the original would be ideal.  an angled plug, as long as its not bulky, would be best.

I will pay shipping both ways.

 

thanks
