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.

Flat Cable Source?
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
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?
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.
This is 3m flat ribbon cable. this seller on ebay has many different awgs ad amount of conductors this is the one i have seen. is this good?
