@FallenAngel: Way cool! Do you have some more pics? This is exactly what I want to do!

It's actually completely straight-forward. Use the existing wiring internally (except for removing the right driver connectors on the left driver), attach the new wires and you're done. ;)

Two projects I did this weekend :)

Made 6' long paracord sleeved balanced cable for my audezes.  Was a pain to sleeve the paracord.

 

 

Modded my wife's ath-m50s to detachable with 3 pin mini XLRs and made a blue paracord sleeved cable for her as well.

Yeah, you need to do the "inchworm".  :-P

A big departure from my normal paracord/braid cable builds, but fun to share mainly because traveling to Japan and getting the supplies was so fun (no I didn't go just for the supplies...)

 

 

 

Shure IEM cable made from some Oyaide HPC-26T which is a prefabricated cable that has a dual coax design with 26ga stranded PCOCC core and a PCOCC shield in a nice, smooth, matte rubber sheath.  Very similar in style to the Moon Audio IEM cables (dual coax design that you peel apart at the Y split), but nicer to handle and use.  Oyaide right angled connector.  Wish Oyaide distributed their DIY stuff here in the US - tons of great stuff of various geometries and gauges.  And also wish the markup here wasn't so insane.  Anyways, very easy to work with, and a way to make something as compact as a stock cable but with upgraded quality and aesthetics.

Hot dang, would I need to go to Japan to pick up some of that cable? Does it come in other colors as well?

Unfortunately, yes.  Well, there are buying services you can use that could handle the purchase and shipping for a fee, and the whole friends/super nice fellow Headfier route.  I don't think much has changed since the last time I was in touch with the North American distributor from Oyaide so I wouldn't expect any DIY cable materials outside of their nicest (and very expensive) interconnect cables available in bulk.

 

When I was in their shop, I saw black, yellow, and clear (silver plated shield) spools, though I think blue and red are normally available.  You can buy finished Shure cables from Oyaide on Amazon.  I think they are around $80.

 

I would have bought so many more things, but I hadn't realized they were cash only so was limited to cash on hand.  Maybe it was a good thing or I would have gone broke :)

Haha.  Great GIF.  I almost bought some of the clear since it was so pretty, but the sheath was stiffer than the other colors.  I didn't think it would do as well as an IEM cable (I wear over the ear cable style).  Would have been great for a normal headphone recable, though.

 

Here is the finished cable for reference:  http://www.amazon.com/OYAIDE-HPC-SE-Silver-Series-Earphone/dp/B008F60YM0/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_6

My thought exactly the moment I saw the pictures.

I wanted to try recabling a set of IEMs so I used an old set of V-moda's that I had laying around.  The cable is 28 AWG stranded silver wire from Navships.  Connector is a Sennheiser branded 3.5mm mini plug from ebay.

First recabling so please be easy on me. :)

 

Hope this thing won't break easily. The Plussound SPC wires really improves the treble compared to the stock cable.

Just did some work on my detachable D2K cable and figured it was time to share some pics.

DHC 24AWG Peptide
DHC Capsid Splitter
DHC Pure Cotton Sleeve
DHC Black Aluminum 3.5mm plug

Props to Peter from DHC for the top notch quality parts!
