So, due to me recently being disappointed by an "upgrade" cable purchased on eBay, and my severe reluctance to dole out more dough on cables than the AUD$160 I paid for this set of in-ears, I decided to build my own.
How hard could it posibly be, right?
I hope I'm not breaking any rules, these links aren't for advertising, merely illustration purposes.
I purchased IE8 connectors from here
3.5mm Neutrik NTP3RC Mini-TRS Jack from here
24AWG Silver-Coated Teflon Wire from here
(White for both grounds, blue for left, brown for right.)
And a large amount of various diameters/colours of heat-shrink, but the main body of my cable will be wrapped in this. I hope my cable won't be as stiff as a baseball bat.
If I feel like it, I might add fabric sheathing, but only if the bare cable/heat shrink is REALLY ugly.
These are the instructions I will follow:
Align moulding wire inside ear hook
Slot inside large diameter heat shrink
Slot heat shrink and 3.5mm housing to braided cable.
Heat shrink 4.8mm
Will post as many photos as possible as stuff arrives,
