DIY iPod Lightning LOD

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

So I got tired of the length of the standard OEM Lightning cable using it with my iPod 5th gen and my Fostex HP-P1. I cut it up, soldered it and put it back together :)  It certainly doesn't look like a true pro job, but works exactly how I wanted it to and it didn't cost me $100. This was probably covered here before, but I was proud of myself for it actually working after I was done with it LOL.

Well done! I believe you have equalled the finest sounding Lightening - USB A cables in existence.

when you use the stock ipod touch 5G with Fostex hp_p1 and stock ipod player or apps is the volume bar visible?

It is visible in FLAC player, but does not have any impact on the volume.... That's the only music app I have ever used.

Ah ok, same as my ipod touch 4G and iphone 4 with the Fostex.

 

Strangely my iphone 3 or 3G on earlier OS doesnt show a volume bar, neither do my portable amps(iphone/ipod).

 

How about on the stock ipod player?

 

Thanks.

Thanks.... I actually redid it to make it as low profile as possible. I took about another inch off I estimate.

Looks great!  Makes me wish my arrow 4g could do USB input.
