Hi, I am currently planning on making a new budget cable (Under £25) for my Fostex T50RPs which have a wire going into each headphone. I have been researching this over the internet over the past few days and would really appreciate some advice. I have never heard much of a difference with cable, so Duribility is my main concern.
My main concern is Starquad or Braided?
I like Braided cables because they looks easier to solder and they generally look nicer, but it is hard to know how good a cable is going to be (Duribility and Flexibility).
Starquad also look nice, but not as nice as braded IMO, however in my experience it is hard to solder to connectors and is hard to terminate to y.
Another question is what sleeving I should use.
If I get braided, what should I look for? (AWG, insulated, conductor)
I would like to try and order everything from uk.farnell.com.
since I want to keep this under £25, I think silver cable may be out of budget.
All help is much appreciated, thank you.
