Looking to re-cable my headphones and wanted to know if there is a place to buy bulk flat style cable that will work? Thanks.

Keep in mind that flat or ribbon cables are often poorly if at all shielded. Also go with a more shielded cable made from the most conductive material you can afford like silver.

Yeah, thanks. I have given up on the flat. Can you recommend an inexpensive 4 conductor cable?post #4 of 87/18/12 at 3:38pm
I am not super familiar with cable replacements so hopefully someone else who has more experience will chime in. I just know from dealing with flat / ribbon cables and measuring noise that they are almost always way more noisy than their better shielded and round counterparts.post #5 of 810/9/12 at 11:33ampost #6 of 812/1/12 at 9:21pm
