Close, it's actually an Acrolink connector from Lunashops, but it is also Rhodium plated like the one you linked. Normally if I need more room for more wires, or thicker wires, I just drill the barrel of whatever connector I'm using out a little more. 

 

Darn!

Super flexible cable, yet heavy Furutech connectors... feels like flinging bolas around (not that I'd throw them around mind you).

looool I'm sure you dont. ;-)
Nice cable though! How thick is it?
post #13071 of 14219

It's not crazy thick... under an inch.

For some reason I thought it was way bigger.
Looks great as always

Maybe I'll do an 8-strand spiral next...

Do you need about 25% or so over your target length for a milloit 4-strand headphones braid ?

My target is 1.5M and 0.12M taps interconnect with what I have.

It depends on how tight you want the braid to be, but I would say closer to 10-15% more for something looking like this.

I started with 7 feet and finished with 6 when I made this one... (so roughly 15%)

 

8 strand, moderately "tight" braid, paracord sleeving, ridiculous Furutech ends

 

It was about the same reduction in length for the one I posted yesterday, which was only a 6 strand braid. For a looser braid like Casper posted, you'd probably be closer to 10%. I'd aim for 15% to be on the safe side, and to account for slight imbalances in finished wires lengths unless you happen to be perfectly symmetrical all the way through.

Finally succeeded on using type 1 paracord.

I might have gone a bit overboard when I made this tiny Aux cable.

That looks good, is it flexible? or just fixed?
