post #1966 of 6133

There is definitely not a difference.

post #1967 of 6133

Mogami all day. I like it over Canare, and I can't imagine anything about the Cardas is 18x better than it. I really like Mogami w2893, super flexible, and the wires are all different colors so there's no need for a multimeter ever.

 

I just straight cabled a broken pair of Bose AE2s I got off eBay for super cheap. It's probably going to be my simple portable headphone.

 

 

 

 

I wonder how many people see some pictures I take in like 2 or 3 threads. Sorry to those few/hundreds of you.

It'll probably happen more often now that I got my new camera and don't have to use THAT^ junk HTC One cam anymore.

HTC One M7 or M8? I have nothing to complain about my M8's camera quality.

I think Mogami should be fine for me.

 

Cardas is way way more expensive than Mogami $18 vs $1 per ft, not sure if it worth it, anyone ?

If you can't hear the difference than there is no point in spending more money, but some people claim there is a difference in which case maybe the extra money is worth it.  Also the Cardas wire is nicer looking and easier to work with.

How does noone know what type of wire connects the speakers in a Sennheiser HD 280?!

 

I need something with 2 conductors, and super thin.

Probably because it is generic manufacturing cable that isn't usually sold or bought by the general public.

You'll just have to look for suppliers selling thin, two-conductor cable.
Not going to be something readily available. I'd suggest looking at suppliers in Asia. You might find a shop that you could use a forwarding service.
Perhaps someone knows a supplier.

Alternatively, you could buy a cheap,broken headphone/headset and gut it for cable.

Mogami makes an ultra flex 32awg single wire coaxial construction shielded cable, it's .039" diameter and is about as small as you'll find. There is one center conductor and a shield, so 2 wires, use the center conductor as the signal, and the shield as common. Don't be fooled for that short run small 32awg is adequate. Stuff is pretty cheap, usually wire starts getting more expensive when you get this small.

PM me your address, i think i have some really thin OCC wire somewhere, i will stick enough in the post for you to connect the insides of the headphones.

Is 22awg 'too thick' for a 4-strand headphone cable ? 

post #1975 of 6133

It will probably be pretty stiff. I wouldn't go lower than 24, but that's just me.

post #1976 of 6133

If you're just using bare wires then no, however a jacketed 4x22 will be much thicker than you'd want for a headphone cable.

I just got my Canare L-4E5C (awg 26), and it's just at that point of being called "thick" and "heavy" IMO. 22awg might be different if it has light sleeving rather than shielding and rubber sleeve.

post #1978 of 6133

Darn, it was this 22awg cable....thought the price was good for UP-OCC

That would be nice for some interconnects!

post #1980 of 6133

2.1mm OD is HUGE for 22awg wire. $1.65 is steep for 22awg wire.
