I tried the Auvio (purchased in store at Radio Shack for $14.99).  The plug body is <0.250" and fits the ML's nicely.  It is only 3 ft length, and for me it is not too practical for portable use.  I take my portable rig (incl. ML 90's) on twice daily dog walks.  I also note a lot of cable noise from the Auvio...microphoincs?   The sound is a very good with this cable, though...maybe a little better than the stock as it seems to reduce some harshness that occur in the HF on some tracks.

 

I have a DIY cable made from a 3.5 to 3.5 mm extension cable with an ideally sized male (Mikros) end...I cut it to 4 ft and replaced the female end with a RS gold plated male plug.  This cable is definitely a step down from the stock cable.  I am pretty sure that this cable was of dubious quality to begin with.

 

I have a Pipeline ET-4 and ET-1 also from RS but have not modded the ends of either yet to fit the ML's.

 

I have a Media Bridge (excellent quality) and Monster 800...neither will fit without mod.  The Media bridge may be tough to mod since the plug bodies are metal.  The Monster is a candidate for grinding / filing / sanding mod.

 

Thanks for the quick and informative response! I'll keep looking for alternative solutions/cables. It looks like the barrel is the main culprit.

Ok, I posted the below in the Discovery thread, but to stop the tumble weeds around here...

 

Wow. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this Estas Tonne is a rather amazing guy:

 

 

You can also listen or purchase (name your price) the album that has a version of that song on it here:

I foamed directly beneath the hole and may blue-tak the edges before I take out the foam altogether.  There is no sense of "brittleness", the bass sounds warm and full [but lacks thwack], and I am getting a nice enlarged sense of space, but there is a little too much bass "overhang"/boom on some tracks. 

What about arranging 4 smaller pieces of felt in a "cross" pattern: at the top/bottom & right/left near cup edges?  Might try that later.

Have to start slicing and dicing that deerskin jacket!

 

i am not hot on FOAMies .... 

 

anything arranged in a CROSS is gonna attract angels playing harps all day long :P

n demons screaming away...if they are anywhere near.

Let me know, i would be happy to hear your feedback.

I got the ET-4 in today. I think that I prefer stock for some things. It's more moderate on the bass end and has a bit more clarity to my ears.

Is your ET4 really microphonic?  I can't even breathe without hearing noise from the cable.
