This is exactly what I ended up doing.  I dressed the wire up a bit with some braided sleeving, and I'm pretty pleased with the end result.

+1 Well done on the heatshrinking.

hey so i got this 1.18mm micro cord and i cant use it to sleeve my wires, is there any sort of way to weave it to hide them?

post #666 of 2543

You can't sleeve them individually with the cord?  That's the way most people using cord that small, as far as I know.

Do you guys want a picture of the new Plus sound audio wire? The copper and silver hybrid wire.

HEY! Hehe, Anyways, I got 1 foot just to test out to see if I like it, I'll most likely make an interconnect:bigsmile_face:

Just thought you may enjoy this article about learning the various characteristics of different types and geometries of wire for interconnects. It's one of the best I have come across. It's called, The Naked Truth About Interconnects. It's all explained in quite simple terms with some good explanations for each type, and some funny humor. There also one about speaker cables, which may or may not apply to headphone cables. Enjoy, I know I sure did!

Hehe that's ok. The main standard principles to understand is L, C, and R. They stand for inductance (L), capacitance (C), and resistance (R). There are LCR meters that are made to test for these parameters.

Gotcha:D

What's a good starter cable and connector to try out the DIY cabling?

 

I want to make a cable that goes from my PC's soundcard to my M-Audio AV40s. 

 

I believe it's a 3.5 to RCA.

Some cheap 16-24 AWG stranded copper cable is a good place to start. This will allow you to experiment without breaking the bank. Something like this will give you a substantial amount to experiment with. You can of course get a smaller amount through them if you wish.
