Flat Shrink Wrap

 

This is the stuff the shrink battery packs and other things together with, it's really rigid, not flexible and will hold any form it shrinks around.

 

If you fixing the end of a cable then this would be perfect.

Threw together a short 3.5mm extension cable for my fiio e10 to reduce jack wear. 

 

Rean Plugs

Canare Star Quad Mini

eBay paracord sleeving

 

I left the Star Quad in it's original twist and stripped off the metal shileding and rubber. I kept the thin paper and string spaces.

Quick cell phone pic. I got sick of the too-long cable on the DT1350 (since I only use them in transit). So I had a few feet of 4 wire braid of 26 awg spc laying around, some paracord, and a switchraft mini TRS. 

 

 

 

Tadaa. Much more usable than wrapping extra cable up with velcro all the time. I took out the pcb bridge board, and just connected wire to wire inside. Not my neatest job, but everything is tucked away fine and didn't use up any more internal space than the original. Strain relief, the original pin is through the paracord giving some flex with a bead behind it, and some hot glue to tack in place. No ports/gaps and minimal rubbing. I might go back in with some sugru at some point though.

Finally put my old 225s back to working condition with some repurposed cable, partly dressed in cotton for the occasion.

And I dissected some cheap ear buds to make a new small interconnect. I first tried an eight part round braid, but that turned out to be a bit too ambitious and ended up doing a double four part instead.

Lovely work, did you take any pictures of them opened up?

Sweet!

 

For the strain relief in my T50p, I just added an extra layer of heatshrink right before where the cable begins to exit through the cups so that the cable is too thick at that small point to pass through the cup holes.  Since I used 2:1 heatshrink for the little project, I added a thin layer of hotglue underneath the heatshrink on the cable so its grip is iron-clad.  I little bit of superglue in the cup holes keeps the cups sealed and prevents the cable from moving much as well.  I would have liked to use the pins as you mentioned, but the previous owner didn't leave them.

 

Sugru?  That looks neat!  Thanks!

Thanks man! I'm pretty happy with how it came out, all in all. Always nice when you get over your fear of cracking open expensive headphones and it all turns out ok. :)

 

Yah - that Sugru link is the stuff. It's pretty cool.

I sacrificed my Monster's in-ear headphones called N-ERGY, just for the sake of my beloved KSC 75, which its cable finally bulled apart from the right earphone.
