post #11731 of 15128

Hey guys. I'm pretty new to this stuff and am planning on modding a mic to my AD700's this weekend. I want to run a single cable to the headphones so I need a 4 channel cable right? What would be a good cable for me to get? (preferably one I can buy on amazon.com)

post #11732 of 15128

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you'd need a 6 channel cable for that (L+. L-. R+, R-, Mic+, Mic-).


You might be able to get away with 4, but I'm not sure.

First diy recabling I tried to do, learned a bit by trying it. Results were not like I expected but I'm glad I tried this.

So planning on attending a meet, I made a balanced cable for my Q701's.


I don't have a balanced amp, so I actually have no idea how it will sound lol




22 AWG Stranded Silver Plated Wire from some dude on Ebay (lol)

Radioshack 3-pin XLR's (lol again, didn't wanna have to order them)

1/4" TechFlex

Switchcraft Mini 4-pin XLR

about 4 ft long (5 ft without litz)

Nice Dutch.


Those large 3 Pin XLR's from your pictures makes them look like copper color.


Your heat-shrink coming out of the mini-XLR is pretty long, you should of used 3 layers and gone 40% shorter.

Doesn't really matter too much though! As long as it works!

Nice, the braid could have been continued down to the Mini XLR better, it just tails off and looks odd. The shrink is a little long, nice job though man wink_face.gif

The shrink is long because I have to cut off the techflex, Asia would fit into the XLr lol, I could have cut it shorter of course though. Idk y I made the braid end either haha

I have an RCA Cable terminated with Neutrik and some Audioengine 14AWG wire in a quad litz braid.

Pretty thick, but works nicely.


If anyone would like it for FREE (Shipping Ex.) let me know.


I upgraded my Subwoofer RCA Cable, and i won't be needing this anymore.

Here's my ATH-ESW9 recable with silver stranded wire I did last week.... the paracord was a b*tch to work with for a first timer, but I still think it came out pretty nice. Plugs were from Yew Audio.


Also, I had to melt the plastic on the cups where the cable goes in with my soldering iron a tiny bit, because the cord wouldn't fit otherwise, lol
