^ lol. Let's say I'm glad I wasn't the particular buyer in this case! Hopefully buyer saw the funny side, eventually...

Just ordered the 'Q' cables for my HD800's and HE500's in Red.  Now just have to wait for the Taboo and I'll be set for a while?? heh?

Thanks, 

Your set-up inspired me to buy the rad cables.  Looks like it could go into a magazine spread. L3000.gif

Unfortunately no headphones,  I have considered some custom IEM's.  I would probably use my Studio V from a pocket though.  Unless I break down a put a small faring on it.  Not a big fan of fairings, but it would be nice when its this cold out to have wind protection for the hands.

You know now that I am thinking about it, there are some hard lower covers for the highway bars I could put on.  then I could install a good source and amp.  Ouch theres goes my wallet again....

It would look like this (but the fairing would be smaller):

That'd be nice. Someone should come up with a system where the electronics could be put down below, but have the controls up by your instrument cluster.

The cross country actually has controls for the audio right next to the clutch lever.  Cruise is on the throttle side.

Here's what the instument cluster on the Cross Country tour looks like. You can see the audio control on the lower left. cruise looks the same on but next to the right grip:

Yeah, but that's only controlling the built-in audio system, which I assume isn't anything special. I'm saying it would be nice to have a really good system that could be controlled that way.

 

You should put a bug in Ken's ear at ALO.

Yep, that's true.  There are a few aftermarket rigs...but nothing special.

Furutech is going to market new connectors.  I don't think they'll make a big difference but they look way cool!!

 

I think when these come out I'll have Steve slap them on my Q-Silk's!!!!!!!!

But as much as I love ya, man, I'm afraid I'd have to turn down such a request. Sorry.

 

Those Furutechs are rhodium plated. Rhodium's fine for mechanical contacts, but it doesn't solder worth a crap. I've dealt with rhodium plating in the past with some of the Cardas connectors and I just won't touch the stuff anymore.

 

The smart thing to have done, if one insists on rhodium, would have been to selectively plate the rhodium onto the contact surfaces only and leave the soldering surfaces plated with something that has much better solderability.

Even though I like my Q HD800 adapters, thanks Steve, I also wondered if the new Furutech HD800 connectors would solder up to the Q cable
