Gear mentioned in this thread:
any recommendations to buy good but a bit flexible cable to make something for my hd25? Ebay links? (EU/UK maybe?)
I also remember seeing the Senns headphone connectors somewhere online but I can't remember?!
You'll have to PM/email Frank (the owner) about the DIY offerings. He plans on posting a list HERE when he finds the time. That is also where you should ask additional questions about DIY cables.
PlusSound audio has a nice silver-plated copper that is very flexible/soft feeling insulation as well as reasonably priced. I do recommend buying it off of their main site rather than ebay to save a few dollars on shipping. They also have a nice 75-strand copper that comes in various colors and is quite flexible, but it's a bit more expensive.
Artemis cables also has some good stuff on eBay if you want a slightly bigger awg.
+1. Very nice cables. But they do tend to be thinner than most others I have worked with. If you are buying from plussound I highly suggest going with the 26awg unless its for iems.
I think that price is a little much for that particular Canare, but that may be good for EU. Could just be that I've been spoiled by Redco bulk cable price.
Back to the point of the thread.
