Buying cables

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I want to make a portable headphone cable for a pair of hdj 2000's that will roughly look like this cable

from what Ive been told in the forum it is a 22awg silver plated copper cable with teflon sleeve.

 

my question is where do i get this stuff? the cable is triple braided btw

Mouser carries Teflon insulated silver plated copper wire from both Alpha and Belden. Belden's the less expensive of the two. Check out Mouser part number 566-83006-100-__ (replace __ with 01-10 depending on what color you want). It's 22 gauge with 19 x 34 stranding which makes it a bit more flexible than the 7 x 30 stranding. $53.24 for a 100 foot spool.

I'm afraid I don't know who may be selling it in small quantities like that. As for the expandable sleeving, heatshrink.com has a pretty good selection.

Of those you listed, this is identical to the one I suggested:

Doesn't heatshrink.com sell the sleeving by the foot?
