Stuff is pretty cheap, usually wire starts getting more expensive when you get this small.

Does common mean the ground?

If so that cable might just be perfect! thanks for the info, I'm trying to do my first headphone mod ^_­^ Gonna try adding both a detachable cord and mic to my HD 280 pro Sennheisers :)

 

Ill buy this wire and if it doesn't work, I will probably just add dual sided connectors.

Common is ground for headphones.

It's a mini coax which is going to be the smallest cable with 2 conductors available for a given wire gauge.

The M7 cam quality is effing terrible. The sensors take a crap really quickly. I have one, and both my girlfriends parents do, only one of those 3 cameras isnt a POS. I had to buy a camera just so I could get some decent pictures, I couldn't with my phone. It was just getting worse and worse.

$1.65 a ft for OCC 22AWG Copper is not steep. I also think that this is Type 2 Litz so if you plan on using this you will need a solder pot.

Does anybody have any extras of those really skinny "Sennheiser labled plugs" that they would be willing to sell and drop in a small envelope for mailing?

I only need one and really dont want to wait 4.5 weeks to get it from lunashops.

PM me if you do, Thanks!

I hate soldering those. Got to be the worse plugs in the world. Wish I could find an alternative for them with a better soldering point configuration.

Ya me too. Its very hard to solder. I find viablue is the worst plug to solder.

I made this cable yesterday and took me like 30 mins to solder, soldering area was so small I had to borrow my grand ma reading glass.

Those are really similar to the pailiccs when it comes to soldering. The ones that are the biggest pain for me are the pailiccs TRRS connectors.

Ahhhhhh and then you put heat shrink over the Viablue shell.....

Why man Why?

Heatshrink IMHO should not be seen... smily_headphones1.gif

Great, thank you

 

Another question. Will this be suitable for powering the second ear?

 

And will a single ground in the main cord be enough for 2 headphones and a microphone ground?

I would use the Mogami Ultraflex for the in headband wire and use something like W2929 for the main length with connectors on both ends. That will give you 4 conductors and a shield, enough to run L/R/Com/Mic and have a shield grounded at the source.

Anyone on here sell Kobiconn IRIS male female plugs ? I'm going to put a panel mount on my mini-amp and route it from taps connection.

Sick of XLR pendulums...so heavy....they are built like a tank but terrible when I want  to use a DAP or off of my notebook.

I think lot of aftermarket put heatshrink over viablue plugs. I put it there just to cover the bottom screw.

I wanted to put the black one but ran out of... so red one it is.

What about mini-xlr?

Neutrik miniCon has 12 pins similar in size to the iris connector.

Lemo makes some nice small 4 pin connectors too.

hahaha...yes. viablue is hard to solder, but for tiny cable and 4 strand only, i think it's still easy to put it in... i only neds 10 minutes to put it in, the longest part is to braid the cable....:))

pailics has larger soldering area than viablue or mps eagle, the easiest jack to solder for me is rean and amphenol. soldering acrolink L shape is killing me.
