Heat it a little with torch, then pull, heat-pull, heat -pull and so on. Be carefull, don't break the heatshrink. Do it fast.
You'll get flexible, thin and superfit heatshrink.
I love heat shrinks. They are awesome. Not only keeping wires restrained, the heat shrinks just make the finished product look good.
OK, here is my pre-recabling warmup for my D2000. I haven't bought any wires yet, so I decided to shorten the stock cable. I could have probably just trim the cable in the middle and splice them while keeping the stock plug. Anyways, I used a new plug and here is the pic. Not pretty but got the job done. Put on lots of heatshrinks so my son won't break it easily before I formally recable it.
I didn't know which wire was for the right or left channel. So I just guessed and luckily right on target. The two wires for the ground were easily identified as they have the same color.
Looks like Piccolino by Crystal Cable, hard to tell for sure.
Ok I can finally upload pics, so here is my first cable I made which is a recable for some Phillips Uptowns...I used Mogami W2447 cable I got from Redco, I stripped the outer sheath and rebraided the wires with a litz 4wire braid. Used a Pailiccs connector, nice connector but pain in the ***** to solder.
got the cable from here: http://www.redco.com/Mogami-W2447.html
Teaser pick of my end game HD800 cable (still need to terminate):
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I have had my HD800s for many months now and am finally giving them the FraGGleR treatment.
That's a nice way to accent, 6 and 2. I like it, though I don't envy you having to sleeve all 8 lengths . What was the total length of the cable and whose conductors are coursing through its paracord veins?
Lol, you have now completed the first-time DIY experience nicely :) Welcome to the fold...
The second time might involve accidentally forgetting to put the barrel on the wire before soldering, or burning yourself with the iron. Ah the joys of learning DIY...
