I used clear heat shrink for my y split. turned out very neat. I could take a photo if you like. And I used a big blue bead on my earlier version of an IEM cable, this time i used 3 small beads that moves independantly for the choker.

Thanks for th tip!

Well it is a little bit microphonic, you can hear "plastic-like" sound when moving head around much. When walking wire under the shirt this won't be a problem.

 

I wanted to use clear, but as it turned out I had run out of clear.

Yup. Minimizing heat shrink helps a great deal in reducing microphonics. So does reducing the overall cable weight, and using smaller gauge cables. Using thicker guage in a loose weave is possible too but why bother.

Anyone knows where I can get 28-29 awg occ stranded copper wire?

Has anyone tried getting wire from this seller: http://cgi.ebay.com/1oz-47-6-999-Pure-Fine-Silver-24-Gauge-Round-Wire-/160507799032?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item255f02a5f8 ?

 

If so, how flexible/nice was it? It's just really, really, really cheap and it would be super easy to insulate with PTFE.

I think in most instances I will use cotton sleeves (ordered some just waiting), but in other cases what if I used no sleeve at all? You know as opposed to something clear?

 

And I keep forgetting to say it, but limpidglitch, thanks for the articles and links. Read through em all almost immediately and wanted to say thanks again.

post #6576 of 13789

Here is my second "High-end" USB cable. I used gold platted connectors that I salvaged from an old USB cable and one foot of Moon Audio Silver Dragon v3 cable. This time it meets USB 2.0 standards, but correct me if I am wrong.

braided cable always conveys "better", as in higher quality to me no matter what its made of.  even though that is obviously not always the case.  i guess its just b/c i think it looks so cool and fancy

how do you set the configuration to meet USB 2.0 standards? i thought usb port has the same pin out (5VDC, ground, data in (+), data in (-))?

Are you entirely sure that Silver Dragon meets the proper twisting and insulating requirements for USB 2.0?  That would really shock me

I'm pretty sure it's not a twisted pair cable, as required by the USB specs.

post #6582 of 13789

 

this is not a recable tho.

 

shortened the cable and put a new tip, and once I was at it put on some red nylon sleeve, why not.

I was gonna put a Vintage Audio Lab plug, but i had second toughts, its too big, the barrel is huge.

Could you explain to me how you did this?? Sorry but I'm a newb. 

post #6585 of 13789

i was wondering how long it would be before i saw someone us a shoelace for sheathing.  i looked at my shoes the other day and had that same idea.
