The short RCA cables are made using Supra Trico wire (the core is stranded in case you are wondering) and HGA LOK Silver Point plugs.

The long RCA cables are also made with Trico wire but have Eichmann Silver Bullet plugs.

Disregard the short one for now.

 

 

 

This picture shows a now yet sleeved RCA to 4-pin XLR adapter, I use it to connect my K240DF's to my Aragon 18k.

It is made from braided Mogami w3080 wires, WBT 0114 plugs and a Neutrik NC4FX-BAG silver plated XLR.

 

Also shown in this pic is my SPDIF cable, it is made from Supra Trico with the outer jacket and shield removed, it still has the inner silver plated shield though, WBT 0114 plugs.

 

 

Closeup of HGA LOK Silver point:

 

 

And lastly my completely rebuilt K240DF's with new plastics and drivers, basically a new K240DF.

Cabled using braided Magami w3080 wires and a Neutrik NC4MX-BAG XLR.

My RCA to XLR adapter has the same finish as this cable.

cCasper I meant the side that plugs into the headphone, looks small and square like a mini balanced kobiconn or something

Thanks for your interest, yes it is.

 

The jack itself is setup for balanced use but as I don't have a balanced amp right now I just put a standard TRS on the other end and shorted the grounds.

 

Due to the height of the cup on the K550 I had to put the female socket with the tab facing inward. Because of that I have to cut off the plastic right angle strain relief that comes on them normally or the cable would stick out at an uncomfortable angle. A bit of a design oversight on my part.

The new cable I built for my pair of JVC FX850s. I posted a single picture in the 850's thread, but here are some more. 

 

The wire is PlusSound audio 7N OCC SPC.

Thanks to Norne audio for selling the MMCX connectors at almost overseas prices so I wouldn't have to wait a few weeks.

Big shout out to my friend Clint for the amazing work on the wood Y-split and plug housing. You do excellent work. Thank you for making time and making my idea possible.

I recabled a pair of T5p headphones today. Man those drivers are heavy! photo DSC02219_zps75d0b99d.jpg photo DSC02220_zps66fdf7af.jpg photo DSC02224_zpse2e25711.jpg photo DSC02225_zps9b3e5c6d.jpg photo DSC02226_zps4793a88c.jpg

 

I ended up having to use some (whatever these things are called) from some pairs of DTxx0 headphones because the hole diameter was bigger than the ones that are on the T5p. Beyer really skimped out on cable quality on these headphones. Thin wires and Rean connectors? Come on Beyer!
