A good baseline is to start with the stock cable. Here's what I did - snip the TRS end off with about a foot of cable left, attach 4-pin XLR female to the TRS side, and male to the headphone side. I also added a small piece of red heatshrink to the right side ear connector for ease of identification.

very good, nicely done

 

but.. ahem.. you see... well...

 

"we" are kind of in the ultimate cable from scratch, means, you choose a custom conductor material, shape, custom insulation, and hand build it from scratch... you know ultimate stuff, in the k$ range... you know what i mean :cool:

 

can't disclose the tech and materials details, you know, classified information... but.. you get the picture...

 

 

:ph34r: sorry to all for the off topic we raised

 

p.s. i'm officially renaming the thread in "Show us your Top Secret Cable Projects. No old pictures please..."

Agreed! I'm not interested in Senns or balanced cables but can so appreciate how clever that is!

Thought you guys might like a friend of mine's setup for his own desktop system.  No headphones yet, just nearfield.

Thumbs up Colin :) Love tubes!

post #15748 of 17855

Added a few new stuff to my "sound corner" :)
A pair of diy speakers my dad did, going to exchange the bass and treble on it so it will be a bit better since its budget stuff. Also got a luxman lv-110 :) Actually the headphone speaker in it is really good! I would almost say it's as good as my little dot mk3, maybe even better! ^^
