DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread - Page 77

post #1141 of 6137

I would just use super glue. That bond should never break, and it wont expand a noticeable amount. And you can keep that sweet wooden splitter. Easy, cheap, effective; super glue.

 

EDIT: Don't use a lot though, if it oozes out of the edges of the connector it could get pretty ugly.

My wory is that the cable falls out again and I cannot open up the case since I glued it too well... Have to make sure the cables sit tight forever in the case.. 

 

BTW - the case is gorgeous, but the angles are wrong - to much of a split to the Y.

hot glue would work too. Then you can get it apart (pretty hard) if you need to

Hmm - you might be onto something - Maybe hot glue would be better holding the cable in the splitter.

Anybody know where I could find an attractive splitter such as this one? I'm looking to re-cable a few pairs of headphones and want something a little more attractive than this:

^ mine is from Whiplash, but I doubt they sell splittrees separately.

What is the best 4 pin xlr connector and the best cable for making my own cables? I am gonna go balanced with my hd650 and my incoming LCD-3 :)

I used a neutrik 4 pin XLR, nice to work with and also not too expensive

As for 4 pin xlr's only neutrik makes one worth considering in my opinion so you don't have many options.  As for cables that is a very good question.   What kind of cable are you looking for?  Copper, silver, SPC?  Or how much do you want to spend per ft?

First of all, thank you so much for making this video!  Definitely helped clear up a lot of question I had!

 

Second of all is another question.  Would you have to wrap it?  It looked like it stuck together very nicely at the end of the video there, even without any heatshrink or anything

Well I dont know what difference the different types of cables do. I want the best possible and dont know what I should get.
Also a nice place where I could order from would be nice to know smily_headphones1.gif

I'm kind of in the same boat as you, and have been looking at BTG audio and Double Helix Cables.  DHC is a bit more expensive, though

You don't have to shrink wrap it, it holds as is when twisted as indicated.


Have made a few IEM cables and they dont come untwisted either
