So I accidentally bought a B gauge jack, where are these actually used, anyway?

Old phone patchbays used B gauge plugs.

Is finding the end of the braid difficult if it's a pre braided cable?

What are you planning to make ?
looking to make an iem cable that can sustain some maybe light to heavy abuse. Going to be for my brother that's why I said some abuse.

Its usually at the end of the cable.

I mean when wanting to know what end corresponds with the other
post #2033 of 6133
Use a multimeter or continuity tester to check which end corresponds. Otherwise it's trial and error with solder/unsolder the ends.

I abuse my iem cables and iems, I am on my 3rd set of ue900, and previously destroyed TripleFiUF10, Shure 215, sony etc,

I do intense workout, probably 2,000 to 3,000 calories per hour workout.

 

I made my own iem cables and tried so many, it doesn't matter if you get the highquality cables, it will get trashed in few months/week.

 

Since then, I buy $14 cable from ebay, it's as good as the UPOCC cables because at the gym you can't really hear that much of difference, your more focused on the workout than your listening anyways.

haha, yes use multimeter !, without it I am not sure how you are going to identify the same wires. :)

Hey why don't you get Mogami microphone cable ? it's about $0.80 per ft and it has 4 separate cables. making iem cables will cost you less than $4.

You can tear off the outer teflon and use the small paracord sleeve.

 

I might do that, bought the smaller mogami and paracord already.

Cross linked Polyethylene is not exactly flexible for small wires.

I got my Mogami W2799 for $0.64/foot from Redco.  Best price I found at the time (about 4-5 weeks ago).  That's $0.16/foot per wire, and it sounds great with my cans.  I didn't braid them, just used 550 paracord; light and supple.
