An 8-strand round braid is relatively easy. A bit of masking tape with numbers is a good way to keep track in case you goof up. A double-milloit on the other hand takes a bit more trickery and a lot of time...

Those are on-ear headphones no ? Really uncomfortable IMO. Get the real "Over-ear" headphones.

Canuck411, these are on-ear? http://www.head-fi.org/t/263985/wooden-portable-ath-esw9-arrived-with-pics 

 

They don't look a lot smaller than my AKG702's!

The ESW9 are definitely on-ear and significantly smaller than the K702.

Not doubting you at all Armegis, guess that's just a small head their on in that link. I've obviously never seen a pair of them up close and personal like:frown:

I had both the esw9 and ES10 and didn't find them uncomfortable at all, even with my industrial piercing. My es10 had ESW11LTD Pads on them though. The es10 blows the esw9 away in terms of sound quality. If you can, go with the ES10 and get esw9 or ESW11LTD Pads.

See cCasper's post about es9 vs. es10 sound quality difference:wink_face: As Potsy would say "Thanks Mr. "C":D

I have an Ultrasone ED5 and I am very very happy with it.

 

Now I want to built some balanced cable for it, so I need to get some of their proprietary connectors that are used on the ED5 cable on the ear-cup side.

 

They call those connectors : "MMCX-plugs » and they fit the  Edition 5, Edition 8 ROMEO & Edition 8 JULIA headphone

 

 I need 2 pairs of those connectors.

 

Can someone tell me where I can get them ? 

 

thanks in advance

You can afford ED5 but not the after market cable ? I will buy instead of making it. I blew up few headphone and speaker coils due to malfunctioning multi-meter.

Sometime it's better to pay extra than DIY.  And believe me I am DIY kind of guy. :)

Do proper solders and don't use the multimeter. Haha you save so much money doing DIY and it can be EXACTLY what you want rather than something people just pump out by the dozens.
