My first real cable build!  Rean TRS connector and mini XLR's.  The cable itself is a Mogami star quad re sheathed in 550 paracord.

OE2 audio headphones

I have been reading here quite a bit but was hoping for some tips.

 

I wish to re-cable Bose OE2 portable headphones... yes I know they suck, but I love how comfortable they are.

 

What would work for me is a light, flexible, non-microphonic, and non tangle.

 

Any suggestions for a descent ready to go cable or DIY design?

 

Many thanks

I think a Litz cable would be a good contender. Perhaps someone will pop up with a good one for you.

Do you need one with a mic or no?

A simply Vmoda audio only cable ia fantastic for the price. Pretty much matches everything you want at a hard to beat price.
Or their 1-button speakeasy cable if you need a mic but I haven't tried that one personally.

There are lots of DIY options. The real question with those is, how much are you looking to spend?

I am having way too much fun with this.  Here's my second cable:  Canare starquad (1 wire removed), Rasta paracord, 3/16 ID vinyl tubing, and radioshack TRS jacks.

Kamakahah - thank for your response! No mic needed. $25 ish? The vmoda looks great - ill need to figure out how to cut and install it.

Nice work.

But shielding can also increase the capacitance of a cable, which you don't necessarily want.

Nice work.

Yeah, I wasn't around in those years when the iPods ruled the Head-Fi nation, but I do see them when sifting through old threads:)

 

Thank you!

Counterpoint: capacitance can also alter frequency response

 

But anyhow, this is a gallery thread and this sort of thing isn't meant to be discussed here.

Small viablue jacks and toxic cables pure silver cable.
