Thinking why, why did you spend so much money on them...

 

And maybe how, how to sell it to someone else at little cost..

A 3.5 TRS to 1/4" TS Y-adapter I made for a friend:

 

AppleMark

 

Paracord for the sleeve, neutrik nys series connectors and a bit of heatshrink for the split...  Very flexible. :)

How much ist he tx silver cable? I assume you got just the cable per meter. Is it a single core silver?
post #13221 of 13919
It's stranded. £5 per foot.
post #13222 of 13919
5 a foot for one cable or braided?

That looks great! I'm jealous...

It kinda sticks out a little, but in coat pockets it's fine. Couldn't use L jacks anyway as they would block the volume control. I'm happy with it the way it is :) (sounds awesome)

After a while with Moon cables that I found too much rigid and annoying, I decided to make my own headphone cables!

I finally gathered all the pieces, sat down and realised the below pieces.

 

My balanced RSA cable - 28 AWG 7N Pure UP-OCC Stranded Silver Plated Copper Custom Wire

 

 

 

 

My 4 foot CIEM cable - 26 AWG 7N Pure Cryo Stranded Silver + Copper Type 2 Litz Custom Wire

 

I love the dual color of the copper (2/5) together with the silver (3/5) ;)

 

 

 

This is a very flexible cable, simply made with no separator other than heat sink.

Everything is sold with Mundorf Supreme Silver/Gold solder. Epoxy glue is filled up in both connectors and RSA plug to increase the strength and make sure the cables do not pop out.

 

 

 

The rig: CLAS -dB with RSA 71b Amp and Heir Audio 4A CIEM :)

ostewart didn't you want to use low profile male jacks instead (L shape) ?

post #13228 of 13919

I prefer straight jacks over the L shaped. I know I could use epoxy but I prefer using the housing that comes with the jacks.

 

Another cable (made for a fellow head-fier CaptZ, for his AKG K501 that he will recable)

 

It is 14ft long, copper cable from Toxic Cables, sheathed in nylon, housing from a neutrik L jack as the y-split, also a jack from Toxic cables.

Here's a cable I made for someone to use with their B&W P7's. That 2.5mm jack was the slimmest I could find, but it's a 4 pole. It was a pain keeping it thin enough to fit into the P7's wire channel that is behind their ear pads. He sent me a template of the size the cable needs to be to still fit in there. It should be arriving at his house today so we will see if it still works. I think it should.

 

 

 

I had to use a grinder at my job to take the threading off the 2.5mm connector to slim it up even more. I ended up just soldering both the mic and ground soldering points to the ground wire to make sure it worked with the 2.5mm 3-pole chassis. I still have my fingers crossed.

I got creative with the tools today as well... Took a rotating steel brush to a Neutrik barrel:

 

 

Will be using it as a cinch on the SPC cable I'm making :smile:
