Again, nice work man.
The connectors are Amphenols. I love me some Amphenols. They make reasonably priced low profile 3.5mms. For those pesky cell phone cases. biggrin.gif

Thanks man. As mentioned, the connectors are 3.5mm Amphenol's, got them from Redco. The sleeving is indeed Tech Flex Multifilament - I think the size is 3/16" but I bought it a long time ago so I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks for the info guys. Those connectors are awesome and I love the look of tech flex. My first cable was made out of OCC silver plated 24AWG cable. Came out a bit stiffer than I was hoping (7 strands only vs. 19 strands). But I am considering my second cable build and am thinking about Mogami or the Litz cables I read so much about.

Hi, im trying to heat shrink some places that the iems should have strain relief, but a lot of the times, the tight size of heat shrink for the wire wont fit over the housing. Any tips? Would i be able to reattach slip heat shrink? Thanks

Finally, finished my LCD to hifiman adapter.
I change the housing and fill its gap with epoxy, and apply some heatshrink to make it more appeal.

That's excellent work man! Is that a dremel tool sanding cone I see in your picture?

What size heatshrink is everyone using to cover fittings like that?  1/2" 3:1 ratio?

 

Sorry, ignore me.  Just saw the diy questions thread.

I made me a cheap extension for my laptop at work.  Went overboard with the wire gauge, but that is what I found at work.  I used 18 AWG and cheapy radioshack plugs.  A little braiding, soldering and sleeved it up.  In the second pic you can see what wire I put inside the sleeve.

Made a cable for Claritas using DHC nucleotide for his Paradox!

Connectors- Viablue TRS and Eidolic HD700/Oppo connectors.  Used a Viablue 3.5mm barrel for the splitter, was damn near the perfect size.  Sleeved with 275 Paracord, used Norne Audio's 26awg Litz wire.

 

 

The main 4-wire braid came out ok, but there are some uneven tension areas.  The 2 wire twist refuses to hold, so I think I'm going to de-sleeve it and twist the wire then run it through a single strand of 550 paracord.

Hi,do you have any pics of the inside of the 2.5mm Eidolic connector? Are they easy to solder? I'm scared of those similar to the lunashop 2.5mm, their connection look very hard to solder and doesn't last very long
