I was referring to the Furutech one, sorry if I caused any confusion.

Yep, remain the same.

 

Other then the 1/4" by Furutech, the rest that are available in my opinion look cr@p, some are using barrels from other plugs and putting it in 1/4" jacks.

 

There is only so much you can do with a jack, it needs to serve it's purpose and looks nice. So i can't see what else there really could be, although i would love to hear idea's.

 

I can get the made with some nice wood, so i can have wood instead of the carbon, but again i don't think this will go will with all cables/headphones.

Design i am thinking similar to the Furutech, but will make it different as i don't want something exactly the same. Will also have my logo on it, printed or engraved?

Personally I am not a fan of wood, but I'm not sure about others. 

 

Frank, what's your opinion on how durable each plug is?

A cheaper priced carbon fibre plug would be more than welcome. I think the acrolink ones look rather nice, but they are a little fat. I would prefer something Oyaide or Viablue sized.

The 3.5mm Carbon jacks will need to be slightly thicker, if it's too think, it won't leave much room on the inside, as the carbon needs to be thick, if too thin it can break during manufacturing of the jack. This is why all the 3.5mm Carbon jacks are slightly thicker. Mine would be similar thickness to the fake Acrolink.

Durable?

 

I don't have the plugs yet, but they will be a solid build, i won't put my brand on cr@p.

 

Just wanted to get some feedback from my customers, it's you guys who with be buying the cables that are using them.

Sorry if that seemed aggressive, was definitely not my intention. 

 

I was asking what you think on the differences in durability of something like a Viablue vs Oyaide?

Only problem I can foresee with the slightly thicker sizing is those darn recessed sockets they give you when getting phone cases... I bought a cheap adapter cable from Amazon to counter this...

Any chance you can make a 3.5 female to 3.5 male adapter plug in the same material?

Not at all.

 

Both are great plugs and the two plugs i use as standard in all my cables, i have never had any issues regarding the durability of the connectors on any of the cables i have ever sold.

 

For some i prefer using the Viablue, on the thicker cables i like the Oyaide as it has a more efficient strain relief.

The 3.5mm jacks will work with most cases, it will be similar in desigh to the Oyaide.
