Introduction - Looking for help on how to Braid / Sleeve cords on my headset

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello! My name is Nimblue. I came to this forum mainly because it seems like the best choise, but also because i am in desperate need for help.


So, i am assuming that you guys like good quality headsets like sennheiser and such. And hopefully i wont get too much hate for this, but i recently got a Razer Kraken Pro.


I'm not a lot into audio, so for me, i like the quality that it's producing. I understand that i can get better value with other headsets, and i understand Razer might be bad quality, but i am honestly satisfied with it, so please dont tell me to refund it and get a better headset.


Anyways, to the case. I got it like.. 4 days ago, and i'm liking it so far. Problem is that the cord from the headset is very thin, i'm used to a Razer Tiamat 7.1 which had a really sturdy and durable cord, but not the case with this one.

I've gotten a single really minor scratch:

This picture doesnt really do it much justice, and sorry for the bad quality picture. But, the scratch is there. And i wanna be on the safe side, and i dont know the right word for this. (English isnt my mother language).


But i've been wanting to braid / sleeve my cord.

 

It consists of a few things;

 

The cord from my headset, which goes into a splitter. And the splitter into the computer. For now i'm only wanting to braid / sleeve the cord from my headset.

As seen in this picture, i took the cord out of the splitter, so that's the only thing i wanna work with at the moment.

 

I've heard about thermoheat tubes, but i honestly think they are rather ugly, and i'm not interested in working with them.

 

Hopefully, this is something which is possible with braided sleeving. I dont know how to do this, where to buy them etc. 


The specs is:

 

Cable Length: 1.3 m / 4.27 ft plus 2m / 6.6 ft splitter adapter.


Since i'm not gonna work with the adaptor, we can take that out.


So we have this:

 

Cable Length: 1.3 m / 4.27 ft plus 2m


I'm not sure what those mean. The 1.3 m could be the length of the thing itself? And i dont know about the last part, and i dont know which of them says how thick it is.


So with that in mind. This is the look i'm trying to go for:

Thank you for reading, so to sum it up. I'm looking to braid / sleeve my cord for my Razer Kraken Pro, not using thermosink tubes, but braiding / sleeving, how do i go about doing this? Where can i buy some that fits my cord?

Thanks in advance!
