Ya I don't know what it is about the naked look but I almost never put sleeving on my cables.  They look amazing by the way.

The paracord is Type3. It might look big because of the plugs.

 

These Aphenol Plugs are the slimmest that i have worked with. The work great with smart phones (SG S4 in the last picture). Furthermore, they feel like tanks.

 

Paracord color is:

Short Aux: G-Spec/ Digital Viper

Long Aux/ M50's cable: Neon Yellow with Reflectors

Quarter Inch to XLR Male: Gunmetal Grey

Been a long time since I updated my IEM cable:

 

 

 

4 wire round braid of Doublehelixcables Peptide SPC

Lunashops right angled 3.5mm plug

Lunashops Westone latest gen IEM plugs

Clear heatshrink

 

I hate paying $10 for an Oyaide clone, but not as much as I would hate paying near $30 for an Oyaide plug.  I needed this plug, though since I have a case that won't fit standard plugs.  Easy to work with and seems like it should hold up fine.  The Westone plugs are ok.  Worked for the wire I was using, and a touch of hot glue keeps them closed.  We shall see how well they hold up over time.  The pins are a touch smaller and go into the Westone body much easier (conversely they also come out easier).  Wire is gorgeous, supple, and hard to photograph.  Very lucky and thankful that I was able to get a sample.

A new LOD added to the collection

This thread inspired me to dive in head first and recable a pair of headphones I just got and they came out great imo, learned how to do a litz braid fairly quickly and ran some techflex over it and the sound is a million times better :D... Anyhow, I will now be redoing all my surround sound and other wires in the entertainment center! I love the look of a custom cable and the sound is better so you cant beat it! As soon as I can post some pics ill upload the one of my recable.

 

On another note does anyone know of some wire that looks like twisted copper? Or just some single wire with a clear sheath on it? I really like the braided copper with techflex around it :beerchug:, I just used some mogami balanced cable and removed the black sheathing to reveal the copper insulation and braided those together and it works its just a pain to work with.

@wolfetan44, thanks friend.
@FraGGleR, yess I used ordinary heatshrink tube on top of my "special" thin sleeve. Actually it is very flexible, I used a "trick" to make the heatshrink more thin, more fit, and since its thin its more flexible. I used this method for all of my iem cables and its perfect ; ).
