Damn. Would've loved to just have bare cable.
post #11672 of 13782

Had a chance to check my cable stock last night. The Canare cables with non-black jackets are also marked, but the markings are spaced farther apart.

 

Chances are pretty good that if you're making a headphone cable, you'll want to remove the jacket anyway, so that you can also get rid of the shielding. It's unnecessary weight.

What would I encase the wires in then?
post #11674 of 13782

Techflex, paracord (type 1 for individual wires) or just leave it bare.

Any idea where I could get cable with nothing printed on it? I really like bare rubber cables...

Just buy Mogami Neglex Quad W2893, and some acetone......the white printing will come right off, now you have bare rubber cable!

Cant wait to tackle some toxic cable inter connects when I get home from work! More pics to follow...



EDIT

My first 2 cables got me over confident. This micro connect I just tried to make kicked my butt... letting it go for the night and Im going to regroup tomorrow with a little design change...

So I'd like to make a 1/4" female-to-1/8" male headphone cable. The wire I've got is the Mogami 2534 so it has 4 conductors and a shield. Should I use 1 conductor each for Left and Right, then use 2 conductors for ground adding shield on the source end?

This is a really neat thread.

 

So what material is best for preventing microphonics with IEM's?

post #11682 of 13782
17 strand, 26g copper from navship with international orange and 3M tracer wrap. I think the orange looks sweet with the chrome jacks.

Now I just need to buy a super low profile LOD like some of you guys are making with the puddy...

I take it that will work with just about any cable? Is the W2893 just a smaller 2543? I want to keep it 24 AWG or lower for some reason... A slightly bigger cable seems more durable I guess.

There's the comparison between the 2.  From it's most basic standpoint, the 2893 has 26 AWG cores, and the 2534 has 24 AWG cores.

 

The 2534 seems to be a little stiffer (likely due to the larger cores and insulation) when comparing them side-by-side (I have ~6ft of 2893 and ~10ft of 2534 sitting next to me.
