Can you suggest me a cable upgrade?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Meanwhile I am getting help finalizing my set-up over here:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/629437/cant-wait-to-finally-purchase-final-questions-beyerdynamics-fiios-and-ohms

 

 

I want to cut the cord by the headphones and put a female adapter there and then just use a cord with male ends on both side to plug them into headphone and player. Is there any resources that I could use? So for once I need to buy that plug and mod it onto the headphones.

 

A second thing is that I want to get a cord that is not as long, or get a cool looking one and mod it to the lengths I want.. So a second thing I need is a cord.

 

I want it to be within a range of $50 mod. Can anyone link me to a desired equipement?

Thanks for the replies.

 

I checked both and I really like this one.

 

A goal of upgrade is to shorten the cord from 10' to 4' to make DT770 Pro / DT880 Pro /or DT990 Pro (still deciding on headphones) more portable. 

 

Anyways. This is some kind of "patch" cable, but I like the length and color option. Is this a decent cable to use?

Is this a right kind of cable?

Thanks, but there is nothing close to my budget that they sell on their website.

 

Anyways, I am kind of thinking of making one? Anyone knows if there are any special skills one needs to have?

BTG prices are catching up to normal quickly now. The prices have nearly doubled on the products that I looked at before, and now.

still cheaper than the rest

a 3.5 mm male to male interconnect costs $40 for SPC, 4 strand, with custom shortened plug

Hey thanks for the links and info, but I really got into an idea of doing a couple of DIY projects now!

I created a new topic for it and here it is: http://www.head-fi.org/t/631271/help-with-first-custom-cable-make-and-detachable-cable-mod

 

If anyone can help me there it would be great!

Thanks for the input here! Greatly appreciated...
