Ditto, in fact I own 4 pairs, 2xdbi pro 700 and 2xdbi pro 705. These were responsible for my obsession.with headphones. I use the 705 with my pc and Schiit setup and still enjoy them! Kept the armored cable on for nostalgia but had to lose the plastic pads. I use sure and hifiman pads.

Cable I made for my HD600. First real cable I did.

Used Neutrik 6.35mm, 26AWG silver wire, 275 paracord, cardas plugs.

 

I wanted the colour scheme to match the HD600 a bit, I think it came out pretty neat for a first cable.

 

Sorry for the crappy pics, taken with my phone.

Great job! I think you matched it pretty well!

Just learning how to solder. First cable was a 6ft really thin male to male cable with slim-lined 3.5 mm ends. Was cut to 3 ft and sleeved with paracord and soldered back together. Second was some 2 wire with braided shield and some connectors, not sure which ones. I had to resolder  a wire on each one after intial test before everything worked fine.  Still getting the hang of figuring out how much  heat shrink to use and how to make it neat. I think the bumpy area on the cable to the left was left over braided shielding that was bunched up.

Here's a few recent builds. BTG SPC interconnects and a balanced-unbalanced adapter for a W3000ANV.
