Nice! Rean connector? What wire did you use? Is that paracord or techflex? What size sleeve?

Ya, that looks like a Neutrik unit. I also want to know what wire you used.

Oh crap, I thought that was silver wire, but its sleeving! What sleeving is that, I love it!

post #12634 of 13474

what cable would you suggest if I were going for a braided look?  I mean like where you can see through to the wire.

 

I want to make my first braided cable but I'm not sure what type of wire I would need or how much.

 

I want a 5ft braid to be used on a male-male 3.5mm connector, so i dont know if I need a 4 wire braid or not.

First of all there is now a cable help thread.  http://www.head-fi.org/t/676402/diy-cable-questions-and-comments-thread

 

But to answer you question you will need 3 wires, Left, Right and Ground for 3.5mm.  If you want sometime with a clear insolation than I would suggest you get one of these http://www.plussoundaudio.com/diy/wires.html.  Their prices are about as cheap as it gets.  But I would go for their 24, or 26 awg.  In my opinion 28 is a bit too thin.  Other options if you want just copper wire or silver plated copper than http://btg-audio.webs.com/webstore.htm#ecwid:category=2620180&mode=category&offset=0&sort=normal but they aren't as high purity as the plussound stuff but if you don't believe in cables than it won't make a difference.

Just started making a cable for my HD 600s today. Canare Starquad and blue computer cable sleeving I had left over from a mouse recabling project. Just waiting on the Sennheiser connectors from China and the Amphenol 1/4" jack from New York.

What is that ring you have on the Y split?

So I first shrunk on white heatshrink, and then I put two smaller pieces of blue on top, leaving that little ring of white. I think it looks cool and it also makes it a bit more durable and thick.

Just completed a cable for my Audeze LCD2's.  Neutrik and Switchcraft silver plated connectors and UP-OCC Silver wire.

Very clean. Love it. I would like to make a cable that looks like this for my HD-650's one of these days.

Thank you.  Its a lot easier than you would think.  By omitting the sleeving it actually makes things a lot easier and in my opinion and if you have the right wire, more chic.

i hardly ever use sleeving, i like the look of braided bare wire, and its easier and quicker.

Is that silver wire stranded or solid? And where did you get it?

post #12645 of 13474

Stranded.  Solid would be way way way too stiff.  I got it here: http://www.plussoundaudio.com/diy/wires.html
