BTW, Nice cable.

Agreed. For the $0.83 a foot, why not five it a try? If you don't like it, just try some other wire.

I use it and liked it a lot. I actually used that for one of the following cables. These are all similar because I offered to make them for people in the X1 thread. Not surprising, they are similar in design to match the look of the X1. One has Mogami 2893, another has Canare L-4E6S, and the other is a hybrid of BTG copper and silver-plated copper. All of them with Neutrik connectors and paracord sleeving: One black, the other two 'Starry Night'. 

 

Got bored taking normal shots, so I decided to mix it up a bit.

Here's part 1 of the re-termination of my stock HD800 cable to convert it into a "modular" cable - one that can be equipped with a variety of adapters to allow use with a variety of amps. Part 1 is the actual HD800 cable itself, as well as the 1st adapter for my new RSA Intruder balanced portable amp. I'll continue building more adapters tomorrow, specifically a TA4FX to 1/4" phono plug and a TA4FX to 1/8" phono plug. I'll eventually build additional adapters for my impending Bryston BHA-1 purchase - either a TA4FX to male 4 pin XLR or a TA4FX to male dual 3 pin XLRs (maybe I'll even do both).

The components used are:

Switchcraft TA4MX male mini-XLR - replaced the stock 1/4" jack on the HD800 cable
Switchcraft TA4FX female mini-XLR - one used for each adapter cable
Kobiconn iris connector - part # 163-191J-E - used for RSA Intruder balanced input/output
Canare L-4E6S - stripped jacket and shield - used for adapter wiring
Black paracord 550
Black heat shrink

 

Note that I found conflicting info on the color of the wiring for the stock HD800 cable. To make sure I only had to solder once, I got out the trusty ohmmeter and measured my HD800 cable - red was right and green was left. I guess Sennheiser didn't keep everything consistent about the HD800 builds... :)

Re-Terminated my Sennheiser HD-800 with Neutrik 4-pin XLR Male, and made a 4-pin XLR Female to the stock Sennheiser 6.5mm TRS plug. I also applied red heatshrink to the right side cup connector for easy identification.

Using the original Sennheiser TRS plug makes the whole cable look like it came from the factory! Nice job man, looks great.

how can you put the sleeve inside the 3.5mm?

I tried to use the heat shrink but was too fat to climb 3.5mm ...

Maybe try removing a bit of the cable's insulation, that way it will be thinner and should fit inside.
