Signal cables should be shielded, it's bad practice not to. Headphone cables don't require shielding.

Does that mean if I make a 3.5mm to 3.5mm interconnect, the ground isn't all that necessary? Meaning I can run just two wires?

 

(Just curious, and sorry for the lack of cable knowledge:)

You have to have a ground wire for the cable to work. 3 wire (conductor) minimum for a mini-mini.

Thanks, sorry about that. Saw a little discussion occurring, so the question thread totally slipped my mind. Won't happen again. :)
