Somehow I feel something familiar ;) http://www.homegrownaudio.com/silver_braid.htm

That solid core cable needs one heck a strength to put on the head.

I just love these picture threads and this is certainly one of my favorite ones!

I finally got my old PowerShot A30 going again so here are the the DIY cables I currently have in use.

Here is my main interconnect.

Core is pure silver braided around a coton rope, wrapped with teflon tape, surrounded by braided copper shield and finally very tighlty sleeved with nylon fabric. Sleeve is so tight that the cable is flexible but stay in position once bended...

Yeah sorry I just didn't think using that adapter as it was was a good idea, better that you catch it now though than shorting your amps l/r channels.  What I do is terminate my cables in a 4 pin mini xlr and then make short mini xlr to hirose and mini xlr to male 3.5mm adapters.

Hey guys.

 

I have a very stupid question. I apologize.

 

I'm recabling old headphones but I do not want to overheat the drivers. There are two things I can do.

 

Either I can take a chance and desolder the old wire and solder new wire on OR I can trim the old wires (about 2" from the drivers) and solder the new wires onto the trimmed old wires (therefore I wouldn't have to touch the drivers' solder tabs with a iron). Would it make a difference in SQ if the latter is utilized?

 

Sorry I'm not too inclined on wires and it's properties.

Desoldering/resoldering a wire from a driver should take a whole second - no worries about overheating there.

I have replaced the wires on my K240DF drivers twice with no issue, just do it quickly so the heat doesn't spread to the voice coil.
