I think the standard black looks best and will match all the cables, the silver might not look as good with the cables with black sleeving.
Black carbon fibre for sure!!!!!!!!!!..and how about hifiman connectors? One that takes thicker cables? Is that an idea? Could that be possible? Or at least a limited version? wink.gif
It for sure would make ur job easier to be able to put 18awg 8wire in it tongue.gif
And i am probably pushing it..BUT..could u also implement some kind of angle in them? As that would be perfect! tongue.gif

Haha, nope. No connectors for the HE.

 

I can do HE cables with 18AWG wires, but 4 sleeved rectangular copper wires is a different story. Saw what, count yourself in for an 8 wire, i will make it somehow. Will email when i get a chance with price difference.

Black Carbon for copper cables, Silver for silver ones smily_headphones1.gif
And engraved :P

OK, been speaking to the manufacturer and with engraved the shell materials would show on the plugs which might not look nice over time.

 

So might need to go for printing unless i can find an alternative to this. If printing should i go for silver or black. the silver will not stand out much and i think will look nice with silver logo over the silver barrel, then black would also match the carbon.

Ah found it..missed that post somehow..big oopsie! wink.gif
so at first its only single ended 6,3mm and 3,5mm right?
Damn..not interesting for me biggrin.gif
post #6566 of 7011

About the new connectors/plugs/jacks. I'd go for the most compact design in black with the 3.5mm as they are mostly used on small devices and are mostly too big. For 6.3mm I'd also prefer black or black with carbon. Black is always stylish and it fits with any other color.

I'm still waiting for a black anodized TC y-splitter. ;)

 

PS Frank, I sent you the order yesterday with a follow up and some questions.

So, I have a beautiful unsleeved Silver Poison cable, with a 6.35mm Viablue connector for my HE-6. However, since I'm probably going to upgrade to an amp that won't provide enough power for them out of SE (right now my he-6 is going way underpowrered...), I want to replace the connector with a 4-pin XLR. About how hard would this be to pull off? I'm thinking it shouldn't be too problematic. And what connector should I be using?

Hi Frank,

 

Just placed an order for an Audio GD headphone amplifier from you.  A PM sent.

A Gold print might be quite classy looking, otherwise grey might strike a middle ground.

Hi Frank,

 

I'm enquiring about one of the Audio-GD units via PM. Cheers! :)
