Plussound audio in Los Angeles. Can order off their website or ebay. Pure stranded silver won't be cheap though. I think theirs is $6.50 a foot.

The previous poster wanted stranded, no?

Solid core is too stuff and prone to breakage

Nice looking.

 

That Y split must be deceptive.  It doesn't look long though from the pictures.

Hi, I've bought a pair of Sennheiser MX 760 earbuds which I like the sound of, but the cable is too long, has bulky interconnector and is full of wrinkles.

I was thinking to replace just the extension cord, which would be non destructive, the other option would be to replace the cable until above the Y splitter, joining the old cable with the new cable in a new Y splitter.

 

I would like to do a thin cable which doesn't wrinkle, with a small 3.5mm jack. I don't care for a solid Y splitter (i.e. could be just shrinkable tube).

I like the look of teflon/nylon sleeves, but am also open for paracord or shrinkable tube housing like the one audiofreakie used.

 

The buds costed 27$ so I was looking for a way to make a cable for under that price.

I'm looking for guidance and suggestions on materials which are accessible for someone living in Europe and which satisfy the requisites.

 

Thanks
