My recent portable rig
AK100 + CORDA STEPDANCE
These combination sounds lovely.

Alright Rudi, I'll bite..... Why 2 PHA-2s? One for each ear?
I was honestly kidding, Rudi. Forgive me for poking fun at you - I do admire you for not letting anybody's comments bother you while always being polite and well-mannered. You may be a headphone addict, but you are a good chap.
I swapped the connectors on one of my Heir Magnus cables tonight (no more memory wire, yay!) and while I was at it I removed the barrel from the angled Neutrik plug for it to better match my tiny IC.
Is there a cable OCD support group here on Head-Fi?
Very nice work.....AND ...great minds think alike. I can't stand the memory wire and glasses/sunglasses. I replaced my 8.A Magnus end with the same type connector you did. Then the 4.A got this homebrew chop-shop connector:
And in the spirit of chopping up perfectly good Neutrik plugs - There's my DIY lightning digital dock for the M8 that I posted here before. This time a new one with a super low-profile USB end and braided mil-spec SPC wire. Then a 4 pin Neutrik XLR modded to 'low profile" to make the M8 a little more pocket friendly. Dang, in hindsight I wish I had gone with the RSA connector as I only use the M8 with CIEM's. Also the bonus of not such a giant termination hanging off the CEIM cable. Less than half the size. Actually fits in my little Brainwavs IEM case now.
The whole rig is a lot more pocket friendly
Oh, and Soren I nominate you president of OCD cable support group.
