Anyway, any cable DIYer that recommend sites with good shipping prices but not in bulk?
i was reading up the cable DIY thread like:

Redco.com
sg.mouser.com (i have no idea how to surf the site LOL)

But those have to purchase at least 50 for some of the sites lol.... Don't really think that it is a good place to start for beginners...

Oh yeah, I remember someone wanted to make a switch for the cosmic ears? Wonder what is the status as well.

PS: Can beginners start such work in the first place?
Regarding the soldering equipment, I have my school labs that I can fall back upon for help.. biggrin.gif

EDIT: Just realize that I need to read up on the cable to use as well...
Looks like 26-28awg seems to be the norm.. 

You can buy cable by the foot at redco. There ate just better prices foe buying in bulk.

I actually picked up a small switch to do the mute function but it's going to be some time before I try it out.

Any beginner can learn to solder. Watch some tutorials and read. Then buy some cheap materials and practice your technique.
You'll be making cables for your Cosmicears in no time.

26-28 is just fine.

Since I just remembered that you guys were interested in a remote for the cables, I did send an email to ultimate ears to ask if they have any plans on making an inline remote/microphone cable for the before September 2010 sockets. If they come back with no, I will shave my current after September 2010 UE cable socket and let you guys know how that goes. I'm pretty sure the UE pins fit into Westone sockets, I remember either UE or Westone has thicker or longer/shorter pins. Can anyone confirm?

Oh Thanks.. that does boost my confidence.. 

Anyway, for silver, i heard that 26-28 might be still stiff and inflexible...  but redco seems to only have copper based, and at most 20AWG from what i see..

Well let just start from copper anyway... 

 

Oh yeah and where do you find the standard 2 pin connectors, i have been looking around but I can't find it..

Either i got to the wrong category or I am just plain blind...

And I read up that I am supposed to get d-sub pins instead?

But it seems like d-sub pins is slightly too thick for UE type though.. unless I can actually shrink it by sanding or any other techniques there is.

 

PS: May I Endure the trial of the Patience... for my Empty Shell (Kinda sad to some extent...)

You're probably going to have many questions. In order to avoid derailing this thread, I suggest the DIY cable questions thread.

http://www.head-fi.org/t/676402/diy-cable-questions-and-comments-thread/390#post_9767994

Good information and plenty of people that are able to answer your enquiries.

Oh.. I was reading that... But since you have been answering my questions, I ended up writing it here..

Sorry...

 

But boy, i get the feeling the moment i received the shells and put on for like 1 hour and i like it, i am going to just send it back immediately...

And wait for my BA4F to finally come!

 

Wonder if there is a God of Endurance... (-_-")

I know this isn't the indicated spot for this question but that particular thread seems to be dead and I'm curious to add you all as friends on last.fm so if any of you have a last.fm mines last.fm/user/fabianlikes531
post #2767 of 4142
That thread just recently started to avoid derailing other galleries ans threads LOL. It's been going all day with posts. Unsure how that qualifies as dead. I mean sure, it isnt the endlessly, spam-filled anime thread but people post questions and answers there every day.

Oh I see. I've never seen the IE8 connector before. But that is absolutely not standard - the newer UE cables are sleeved like that but without the weird shape. As for the UE vs Westone, I think UE pins are slightly thinner, but don't quote me on it.

So today I practiced the drums with the tdk BA200s and I have to say, I miss the BA4s...

It's really hard to play along to a song, when you can barely hear the song... 

 

On a happier note, the demo models + empty shells will ship this monday. Which means I'll probably have them in about two weeks. And if I'm really lucky, I'll receive the finished shells in a month and a week.

I took the labor day sale. Only because they are just one state away. Otherwise, I would have picked up the HY3. Next time.

Sent my impressions 9 days ago from the UK to Sweden, I would have thought they'd have arrived there is under a week, I sure hope they're not lost.

Testing and QA for me! :)

 

I really like that Cosmic has these status updates, it made the process seem quicker since I know what's going on.
