Headphone Cable Extension Suggestions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi, I want a 3.5mm extender for my headphones that will not loose quality with audiophile headphones, and be 5-10 feet long.

 

I would appreciate some suggestions.

Just about any properly shielded cable will do.

 

Unless we are talking about concert use stuff, unbalanced and shielded should be fine. 

 

There are quite a few people here that'll make a custom cable for you for a relatively cheap price, although most of your average cable in electronics store should work.

Thanks guys, was afraid I needed some very expensive cable or I'd lose quality over X distance.

You would lose quality over a LONG distance unless you go balanced, but headphone cables don't go to those extreme lengths.
