Lightning Cables - Official and Custom (welcomed). - Page 2

@Expat, I've been trying to order the venturecraft from amazon japan, but shipping to Singapore is a bit of a pain frown.gif

I ordered a 4" black monoprice USB to lightning cable. It looks suspiciously like the vmoda. I'm curious to see it. Monoprice cables are usually pretty decent. Just under $15 shipped.

Any comments contrasting the Vmoda and the MonoPrice lightning cables? I see 1/4" length difference and $10 diference. Any hands on experience with either?

I can't believe there are no right angle connectors available in the US.

I think thegrobe connector is available in the US.

Maybe the Venturecraft is on amazon? (edit:Yes, it is.)

Anyone know where to get a 90 deg head piece like on post #8 and lightning connector heads? Was curious how available these parts might be. 

 

Thanks

HAHA nevermind, just saw on the same post an add for the 90 deg head piece. Anyone know if you can get these in the US? Wouldn't that be nice! :D

Fun fact, on a conference call with Apple they let me know that using 30 pin docks of the DIY variety (the kind you see on Qables, and all over the stores of various fine entrepreneurs) is unauthorized and anyone that does this owes them royalties.  Of course this would go quadruple for Lightning connectors, Apple's new golden goose.  So for all things LOD, if it uses an Apple part on one end, best not to publicize that you are doing this for money.  

 

That is, unless you are a MFi Developer or MFi Manufacturer.

Thank you! - I had no idea on the royalty issue!

The chances of trouble aren't real high, but yeah while I was well aware that Lightning was locked down, I had no clue that the 30 pin docks were protected too.  The good news is, there's other ways to make a buck, check out my lemonade stand.

Expat, thanks for the mention. I just stumbled on this thread following your link from the M8 thread. Better late than never to the party. Here's the latest version:

It is looking very pretty. Well done.

Hi 

 

This is my Lightning to 3.5mm, its cobbled together from bits i already had.

Can't remember the cost of these bits but it does work well even if it is a little cumbersome.

 

To my ears connecting via the Lightning sounds markably better.

 

Oh, and a big Thank you to Joe for sorting me out with my Images.

 

Cheers

 

Andrew
