Would the Mogami W2697 be a good cable to use for my AT M50 headphones? Looking for something light and flexible.

If it were me, I would rather use W2799 (4 conductors).

What would be the reason? Would that cable be too stiff?

The 26AWG 2799 is pretty flexible, and I would use the 4 conductor cable because you need 1 for left, 1 for right, and 2 for ground on the cable itself.

Ok, thanks. I figured on using the sleeve as the ground on the 2697. I will look into the 2799.

Well I'm not buying a tool so crimping is out. The glue gun gives me the idea that if you glue inside the hole and around maybe do that and slide the outer barrel over it and maybe the barrel would be glued on then. Just a thought. Now I have to decide what wood I will use on the y split for my Alpha Dog cable and maybe the HE cables. I still have not decided to cover the HE cables as I'm buying clear covered silver coated wire for them it might look nice though. Thanks again for the advice.
