If you're in the States, fraggler's link to Mouser is your best bet. If you don't want to use Mouser, check with some of the cable builders that sell parts, or look for an Auto-IRIS camera plug. Some of the Chinese vendors sell them too -- I've only seen them advertised in large quantities but maybe somebody, somewhere, will sell ones and twos.

Sorry... I'm not quite sure which connector you're pointing to??

I think he wants info on the mini-USB socket. It's hard to tell because it's partially obscured by some image corruption.

I'm also looking to mod my M50s (kitten chewed right through the cable), and I want to go mini-xlr to 14" stereo (these are for home recording).

 

These are the parts I currently have lined up.

I'm pretty sure those are the connectors I need, but I'm trying to nail down what cable would be best.  I see a lot of people using 4 conductor cable for this type of application, and I'm not quite sure why.  Could someone point me to the correct cable at Redco to buy for this application please?

I've used that same female XLR for my AKG's and it worked great with Mogami 2893.  I got the large opening option for the XLR, but I'm pretty sure I could have gotten away with the small one.

 

The 4 conductor cable is:

 

1 x Left signal

1x Right signal

2x Ground (or for balanced, 1x Left Ground, 1x Right Ground, same thing).

 

I used the Mogami as is, but the next recable I'm going to do I will strip out the 4 connectors in some Mogami 2534 I have and just use them (or just use the clear ones, not sure yet).

Rather than making a separate post, when people are using Techflex to sleeve their cables, what diameter are you using?  There's a bunch to choose from.  Thinking of ordering some from FrozenCPU just so I have it on hand.

Well, Got a few extra hours on my hands this afternoon and was really liking the shade of blue of this USB cable I have. I realized I had some paracord in almost the exact same shade. So my mind started wondering...

I ended up making a new cable for my AIAIAIs and sheathed them. First cable ever made was IMO, a success!

You would most likely need a threaded 3.5mm connector in order to use it:

Cheers thanks very much  - have you had experience with these? Do they fit inside eachother?

They should.

 

The real problem is finding a housing for that threaded 3.5mm plug.

I'm not sure if Qables would sell a housing for it, because just regular heat-shrink would look rather plain and ugly.

in order to prevent this, i usually have to roll the edge between my fingers while it is still hot. keeps the edges flush with the surface, but can burn your fingers ;)

That looks fantastic!

 

What kind of wire did you use underneath the Paracord?  Is it in a braid of any kind?  I have a bunch laying around (from when I thought I was going to sleeve my computer wires) and I'd love to find a good use for it.

Thanks.

 

This was the first cable I have ever made. I just did a regular 3 line braid with some silver-plated copper wire from navship. Nothing too crazy for my first cord. especially since they were for my DJ headphones.

 

Time to build some small interconnects. This is extremely fun and therapeutic for me. Throw some tunes on and solder away.

I used this on my DT880 and my DT770 :) Looks similar. Just a different nut I think. Looks a little more tough after it's installed.
