Do you know why round braid is better than flat ?

I was going to get an 8-strand made soon and had thought flat would have been best (comfort) for some reason.

 

I prefer round for flexibility...

Ah yes,ease of use/flexibility is what I meant to say.

I found that the stock Audeze flat cable tended to fold vs roll when it twisted over my arm chair (under my arm). The round cable bends in all directions vs the flat which only folds along one dimension.

I agree the Hifiman connectors stink. I can post in a separate thread some pictures of how I hardwired a cable to the HE6 which could also be applied to putting a different jack in.


Sure.

I did fix the problem by fill in some nasty glue into the jack. the cable is very badly twisted, so I am not going to post any photos here.

I do have new wires and connectors coming soon.

You might see my post within 2 week for my new cable:P

Here's my detachable cable mod for my Audio Technica SJ55's using SOL REPUBLIC cables. I've got a how-to thread on these too.

I stuck to my plan to build this cable today, even though I broke my finger last night. Let me tell you, braiding and soldering aren't easy with a big splint on your finger.

Nice work! I love the look of the 1/8" Switchcraft connectors but despise the price and difficulty in soldering them.

This was the first time I used any switchcraft products, and really enjoyed them. I mostly use Rean stuff because it's cheap and easy to use, but I liked the layout of Switchcraft more than the Rean in both the mini XLRs and the 1/8th connectors.

I wish I have balls to mod my T1 with mini xlrs.

But I guess I still need to destroy lots of 1 dollar phones to regain my confidence.

 

Very good job man.

Did you need to drill holes while you doing the mod?
