I'm new to this forum and wanted to introduce my self. I'm an experience Electronics Tech with 10 years in the field. Currently I specialize in communications transport over copper, fiber and Microwave radio. To break it down simply, to something everyone can relate to... when you call someone on the other side of the country, I maintain the equipment that makes that possible.
in my off time, I enjoy time with my wife and daughter, and listening to music on my phone...
I have two projects that I'm going to be undertaking, both of which are for my new UE TF10's.
The first is that I'm going to buy a good set of factory iphone compatable cables for a competator earbud, and replace the connectors with UE typ connectors. I'm not set yet, but considering Shure's CBL-M+-K-EFS as a base point.
The second, and I know it's going to be a challenge, is to build a set of normal, 3.5mm trs jack, cables.
I'm planning on using the following components/sources
viablue t6s 3.5mm plug (Krispy Kables) or Switchcraft 35HDBAUS 3.5mm plug (take five audio)
26 awg PTFE 19 strand silver coated copper wire (navship)
3:1 double adhesve heatshrink, have on hand
ue tf10 plugs (lunashop or ebay)
I'm also thinking about using a nylon sleeving, but i'm concerned about any microphonics that they might induce in my build.
I'm looking for advice on my component selection, including options I don't have listed, with justification. Advice on sources is also more than welcome. And finally tips and tricks on how to succeed.
