Simple and sexy. 

 

When I try to explain to people why the materials for that cost ~$45 and can sell for $70+, their jaws usually drop and ask, "why?"

Instead of trying to fruitlessly explain, I usually tell them, "because it's pretty."

 

Anyway, nice pics.

Yeah, materials are $45 and a bit, then the time to make them, slightly fiddly. $70 is a fair price. Back to pictures smily_headphones1.gif

I'm looking to recable my Grado 225i with Mogami 2893 and some paracord.

 

Does anyone know what type of paracord is needed for this job? (diameter)

 

I'm kinda new to the DIY scene, would appreciate some help.

 

Open to suggestions.

Would Be best to ask DIY cable questions in the linked thread. Then come back and post your pictures here in the Gallery.

Decided to add another interconnect to the arsenal. 

 

Regular right-angle Neutrik made low-profile, Plussound silver-plated copper 7N OCC and some paracord sleeving. 

 

Rig is my very portable clip+ rockboxed w/ a C&C BH. 

 

Was going to use black connectors, but when I sat down I felt like giving them something to pop so I grabbed the silver ones instead.

Wow that looks superb, you´re right about giving them a nice (silver) touch, may I ask, does the cable something to the sound? It gets improved or changed? I ask because I´m looking for a IC and maybe we can work somethin out? ;) Thanks

Inexpensive mini-1/4 interconnect. Rean 3.5mm connector-navships silver plated copper wire- ? 1/4 connector.


I bought a 12"x12" sheet of 3M carbon fiber vinyl wrap and am putting some of it to use in this cable :)

(I'm not paying $15 for that look :wink_face:)

 

Also, my Fiio E12 Mont Blanc.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AND goodbye 100+ Head-fier :veryevil:

Did it in one of my favorite threads.

My newest cable.  I think its my endgame cable.  Rhodium plated connectors, silver with 1% gold wire and after a little fiddling I was able to make a silver neutrik plug with silver connectors.  very happy with the outcome.  Thank you to Frank from Toxic Cables for being so easy to work with and supplying the cable and y splitter.  Love the look of the Y splitter.

A few awesome members have offered to help! Thanks guys!

It has been a while since anyone posted in this thread so well...

~4.5' cable - 1/4" amphenol trs, redco 3 pin mini xlr, 4 copper wire from BTG audio 

I was considering dhc or plussound but given their costs I ended up just going with the more basic BTG stuff even though it isn't occ or anything.
