Bought some NOS Beldun 24AWG SPC cable and a bunch of Rean jacks in preparation for multiple headphone re-cabling jobs. Just want to get some nylon sheath for durability purposes and then I can get started.

The canare L-4E6s was twisted pretty tight in the sleeve and it was tough to straighten out and it's still stiffer than I'd like it but it's definitely better than the stock cable.

 

 

Looks cool, what is SQ difference you find with stock cable.

 

If I need to do an DIY cable for HE-6, which cable is best for SQ upgrade?

That question has been asked, as have many others regarding how wires sound in the past and many a thread has been shutdown by the ensuing debates.  I would ask this question from a build standpoint in the DIY cables questions thread instead of this gallery.  And perhaps ask in the HE-6 thread for cable recommendations on synergy if there is any.

Agreed, make sense.

 

if I wanted to build an sliver cable for my HE-6, then which would best in terms of price and build quality?

Just flip few pages back, you will see I just post my new HE-6 cable.

It is a Mogami.

It is longer than the stock cable, yet it is louder. So I think it has less resistance which means it is better?

 

Depends whether or not you are a wire believer, the answer you get will be very different.( In price and  in brand name )

Made a short 3' portable cable for the HFI-780's. (30 AWG Litz in micro paracord)

DIY 3.5mm -> RCA cable... Apple-esque design inspiration, I made this one back in 2012.

 

HGA IC-4.24H silver/copper braid wire terminated with Eichmann Bullet Plug RCAs, and an Oyaide P-3.5 gold right angle 3.5mm stereo plug. WBT solder.

 

My go-to cable for use with the HRT iStreamer.

Ever come up just one foot short? I have, with the great sounding AKG K 420 folding travel headphones.

 

They have an annoyingly short cable, so I made this extender from a piece of HGA IC-4.26S silver braid, ViaBlue T6s (small) 3.5mm plug, and a Neutrik NYS 240BG 3.5mm female jack. WBT solder.

My sister needed a car stereo patch cable, her favorite color is purple.

Mogami Neglex 2534 wire with Neutrik NYS 231G 3.5mm stereo plugs, WBT solder.

Made a custom stereo mini to Lemo for my T70's. Had to work on a custom strain relief solution for the male Lemo though. ABS collet spacer to the rescue.

 

Nice looking Neutrik NTP3RC-B on some 6x26awg shielded cable. (note the proper fitting of the shell, why can't these expensive cable makers get this right? No heat shrink to hide mistakes here.)

 

 

Wait a minute, that things bigger than my thumb. This is one heavy cable.

 

 

Next to a sibling connector and a couple of TRS connectors and this thing really shows its size.

 

 

Obviously this won't work for my T70's just look at the difference in size of the EGG/EEG female connectors.

 

 

Well, maybe I didn't. Found the Lemo 3K 320 connector pair while rummaging around at work today, stuck a piece of ABS in it and took some pictures.

 

Little bit big and heavy for portable audio applications, too many pins and too expensive for stationary audio applications too.

 

I do intend to put another FGG.0B.304.CLAZ52 on the 1/8" TRS cable when I find one or order to make a 1.25m 1/8" TRS cable for the T70's. Then I'll make a 4 pin XLR for balanced use.

Length of DiY cable for portable use. 4 strands of self-braided NOS Beldun 26AWG wire, 3.5mm Rean Jack and heat-shrinking for the jack strain-relief and Y-split. Haven't screwed the Rean jack up or soldered the other end to drivers yet. Not too shabby for my first cable, and it works too.

Made a balanced cable for a pair of Audeze LCD-XC's today. It's about 8 feet long. The headfier I made it for wanted a thick soft cable for aesthetics but it also needed to be flexible so.. I ended up using 26awg wire from BTG Audio (signals were silver plated copper, and grounds were copper) and sheathed it in 550 paracord, yes 550. I ran one strand of yarn with each wire to make the paracord nice and plump but still flexible. It feels very nice. This was also my first time using a pre-made y-split (Viablue). That was pretty nice.

 

 

Side note, it isn't fun at all trying to get 4 strands of 550 paracord in an RSA connector. Needless to say, it was modified.
