First recable ever, left over Cat5 cable and my cousin's RC shrink wrap.
post #10997 of 14066

I love all of the work everyone has been doing here!

I'm just getting ready to start my first ever recable as well for my ATH-AD700's

I'm adding a mic and removable cable and the whole big deal!  I can;t wait to get started.  All I'm waiting on is a TRRS and 2 TRS jacks that can hold the diameter of my Canare starquad cable (6mm I think)

 

Hopefully I can put my work up here some day soon gs1000.gif

Which females jacks are you using on the headphones to plug the cables into?
post #10999 of 14066

oh I'm looking for male plugs for the end of the cable to go into my astro mixamp and my PC 1/8" plugs.

It was between Pailiccs TRS or XLO HT TRS, but the HT's are 6.50 a piece and the pailiccs are 2 a piece.  I didnt know if there even were any TRRS male plugs that have a 6mm+ cable opening?

 

Thanks for responding

 

Sorry I get mixed up with plugs vs jacks and all that jazz haha

Does anyone know where i could get a C7 Plug? Just like the one on the Audioengine A5.

 

I don't need an entire cable, just the plug/connector.

The one Furutech sells is too expensive for me.

I believe Furutech is the only one on the market currently.

If it's for personal use you could try something like this.

I don't need anything fancy that's $50+.

 

Just something like $5-10 will do.

 

I could cut the C7 plug , but that'll end up really ugly.

Places like Alibaba has it, if i search "C7 Plug Audio", but minimum purchase is a bulk of 500. popcorn.gif

 

Thanks for the link, i haven't seen it, but i was going to do the exact same thing.

 

Too bad the page still didn't help me locate that C7 plug.

you could always buy a cable and sacrifice the cord.

Hi guys.

I bought a FiiO e11 amplifier for my Koss Dj100 headphones that will arrive next week...

I need a cable 3.5mm to 3.5mm both male to connect the player with the amplifier,but on internet i found only the 20cm+ ones...

I would like to keep my player and amplifier together with a very short cable, how i saw on some of your posts.

The problem is that i don't know how to make a cable myself,well i watched some videos and tutorials but still not sure.

1.I need 2x 3.5mm male jacks,but which ones?plated in gold?

2.About the cable, i have no ideea at all...

 

I found some jacks and cables but i'm not sure about the cables....

 

 

Here are the links to the shop i found them.

 

Cables http://www.strumentimusicali.net/default.php/cPath/117_119_369/Cavi-Audio-ed-Adattatori/Cavo-a-Metro.html

Jacks   http://www.strumentimusicali.net/default.php/cPath/117_119_368/Cavi-Audio-ed-Adattatori/Connettori.html

 

It's in Italian,as i am from Italy,hope u can understand the info...

 

Thanks a lot

FiiO makes one, if you don't want to make your own.

I know about that,but with shipping it will end in 20 euros or so...

It's so hard to find something you need here in italy >.>

If you don't already have a soldering iron, and some supplies around, it's going to cost you a lot more to make one.

Convince an alibaba merchant to send you a sample.

Edit: Also, there are IEC to C7 adapters. Next time that you search, use power instead of audio.

Check markertek. Use smaller gauge wires.

I took your advice and sent a few emails asking for a sample as though i was from some large company.

 

The search "power" did help me a little more. I don't like using adapters, i like a pure single cord signal transmission.
