Q Cable Appreciation Thread - Page 32

post #466 of 478

Steve,

 

Any thoughts on making cables for the Audeze EL-8 connector?  It's been public for almost two full days, so you must have plans by now.... :evil:

Yes, I've had some thoughts. They can be summed up in one word: No.

I really hate how you beat around the bush and won't give a definitive answer!  That's really a secret code for "pre-orders start Monday", isn't it :tongue:

 

Is it a difficult connector to work with or is it more of an "enough of these ridiculous non standard connectors" situation?

It's just not suitable for terminating to a cable like ours. It's designed to be used with an extruded plastic cable with relatively small wires and then to be over molded.

Audeze still has four models of headphones that use the mini-XLR, so I'll just stick to making cables for those.

Thanks for the info. It does look like a PITA to work with being molded plastic.

I'll keep using my Q for the mini-XLR Audezes despite your refusal to take more of my money smily_headphones1.gif

It's a piece of cake and more efficient if you're working with more conventional cable.

I can just turn around that catch phrase, "Keep your money, please!" biggrin.gif

I may give it some thought. But I've never been very thrilled about making adapters. Making adapters is the one time that I'm just gritting my teeth wishing I were doing something else. It's pretty soul-sucking.

More bad news.  I would like a set of the adapters as well. However I am not going to endanger you soul.  Temp perhaps. 

 

I have so many cables that I need in advance of that it will probably be 2016 before I would get around to an order, plenty of time to obtain a dental appliance to help with the teeth grinding.

^^ Uh oh. Now I've started something and will likely get a nasty gram soon. Steve I apologize in advance for any trouble I may have started. :o

It's that D**N BMW over-engineering design philosophy striking again!  Will they never stop? :wink_face:
