Before I start my review, I would like to Thank Cayin for providing me with a review sample of their new flagship N6 DAP which is currently available on Amazon and from other retailers like...
After picking these up from the Sony Store about a year ago, I can say that these are definitely not worth the $350-$400 price tag. Luckily, I picked them up for around $180 and to me, this seems...
First of all the reason I rate the SE215 5/5* is primarily because of the value it presents under the $100 mark. You will be extremely hard pressed to find a pair of IEMs at this price considering...
I'm all about best use on a budget for a specific person and lifestyle. In my case, the Jaybird Bluebud X's were fantastic. You can check out my review on head fi here, but I also have an older...

Only the HOT end...
She's a work of art, been a faithful workhorse since I got it in the 70's... She's getting a bit forgetful every now and then... A little rap on the base to free up the magswitch and all is good again.
I can see a Hakko on the horizon though.

If I had a dollar for every time I slipped on the handle and reflexively tried to catch the hot end...
well, I'd have at least $2
because I clearly didn't learn my lesson the first time
at least I didn't try to catch it in my lap
22AWG Silver Plated OFC Copper w/ 5% Silver Solder & Triple Shielded
Still need to heatshrink the ends.
Thanks to Fraggler for sending me mylar foil & double braided shields for triple shield.
A few more projects left before i disappear from the audio realm.

Hey man, this gallery is all about building your own cables. I'd say that iron's a prime candidate for a high-end OCC copper recabling in a litz braid with silver solder and gold-plated plugs. Then your every soldering job will be in high fidelity!
After soldering a plug, wrap the tape through the exposed joints before putting the housing on. It's usually a better fit than the thick plastic sleeve that plugs come with, and helps minimize the risk of shorts if any of the solder tabs flex..
Right on mate, never heard of this before. Will try soon.
