DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread - Page 80

Yeah it looks really nice, and durable. That's why I tried before but I couldn't get it apart. It looks like it was screwed together, but they must use some kind of adhesive to keep it from being opened again. Bummer.

After replacing 3 different peoples ATH-M50 jacks I don't thing they're all that great.

 

Amphenol, Neutrik, Switchcraft all make excellent 1/8" connectors.

 

I personally try to use 1/4" as much as possible because they are so much better.

It is really a simple check that you can do yourself, dont be afraid. Buy yourself a $5 multimeter, open the housing up and check the pinout. It will honestly take you less time and you will spend less money than sending them off for a third time.

If you're really that uncomfortable with it, I'm sure there are plenty of DIYers here willing to help out including myself.

Hope your D2Ks get the treatment they deserve!

yea... I'm just going to get Brian at BTG to build me an entirely new cable... and re do the pin out him self, KingWa although sent me this

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Dear Makiah,
Pin1 L+
Pin 2, L-
Pin 3 , R+
Pin 4, R-.
The issue most like the L and R have confuse.
Kingwa

Check what's in bold, but yea... twice now and I'm not doing it a Third time. It works 100% wonderfully in SE mode, so that said. Seeing as I wanted to ditch the Stock D7k cable anyways, might as well do everything at once rather than spread it out at this point

Yeah your better off getting a whole new cable.

indeed, plus... his attitude struck me nicely.

 

waiting to hear back from him,

Brian's always been very helpful. He does good work at a reasonable price. If you can't make your own, he's for sure one of the best options.

I agree, I spoke with him already and again good attitude and great pricing! 

 

Waiting for an email back from him on this newest reCable

VALabs store seems to be gone! =(

Does anyone have an extra set of their mini plugs that I could buy from you?

Want a set for my personal cables! =D

This plug is beautiful guys, it feels extremely high quality, and will be my go-to plug for soldering(when I need a 3.5mm). The only caveat I could find is the opening is a tad small(it is 6.3mm, which is the Oyaide opening size, so take taht as you will), but not too much. Also, I weighed this plug and a pencil, the pencil was 4 grams, and this plug was 5 grams.. Astounding. By the way: http://www.doublehelixcables.com/pub/dimensions.jpg .

I prefer rean neutriks for the price, but those do look very nice.

I must be the only one that doesn't like Neutrik/Rean 3.5mm jacks, love their 6.3mm jacks, not the 3.5mm though. I much prefer Pailiccs, or even the cheap Sennheiser branded ones like this:
