Hey head-fi. Unfortunately, the title of this thread may be misleading, as I have not yet done this mod. In fact, I am looking for help. A lot of it. I would like to make a dual entry removable cable for my dt 880's, with a cable that locks in (mini xlr?). It does not need to be balanced. Due to lack of experience, I would appreciate any answers from the pro's:
1. Seeing as it is not balanced, would I still go with mini xlr's? Is there a better alternative? For example, I found this on moon audio. Using this jack, I could literally plug any 1/4 inch cable into it and play away. The problem is, I cannot imagine how to plug the two separate cable together. Thoughts? http://www.moon-audio.com/neutrik-1-4-female-panel-locking-jack.html
2. Suggested cable material? I don't know how much of a difference the cable material would make. If I do have to make a custom cable (if the neutrik one I gave the link to up top does not work), what cable material is ideal for someone on a budget?
