Litz Wire AWG for CIEM

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey Everyone, im in the middle of building my own iems from scratch and couldnt find info on whats the best gauge of wire to use when wiring balanced armatures. Not knowing i bought some 10/46 litz and it does not work well at all, way to small...does not make a good connection. So then i used some small gauge magnet wire, this worked fine but it is hard to soilder and tends to break off easily. So I just want to ask any of you that know, what is the best litz or industry standard wire to wire the BA drivers???

 

Thanks , Brian

You should maybe ask this in one of the Cable forums. The headphone lounge, or toxic.they could maybe point you in the right direction , on which thread may be a good one for you.

I have a lot of pairs of "giveaway" quality earphones. I bought a bunch of low-capacity DAPs in a clearance, amongst other things. I'd just cut the cable off one of those.

Perhaps you have, or could access a similar source?

Oh, sometimes difficult cables are better crimped. You may have to be inventive and even resort to a hybrid crimp/solder bridge.
