    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

    Space permitting! Love the fact that I can plug my phone into this CEntrance Hifi-M8 and drive pretty much any headphones I want wherever I am. iPhone XR > Hifi-M8 > Dt770 80 ohm

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    Definitely not the best option because the XLPE insulation is typically the limiting factor, but I've enjoyed it on some of the test cables I've done over the years. It's very unique. If you can get your hands on a solder pot though, I would highly recommend trying Litz out.

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    https://www.head-fi.org/articles/diy-cable-info-and-resources.14308/ I use this all the time to pull up pin-outs. Scroll down to Headphone connectors and you should see all the designations for all the wiring. 2.5mm and Sennheiser (based on pin size)

    DIY Cables- high quality components needed

    I can't seem to find it on the website, but Trevor over at Norne Audio has probably the only 4.4mm TRRRS high quality plugs on the market right now. Maybe try shooting him a message and seeing if he has some. That or DHC should have them too, that way you can also get a hold of some of their OCC...

    New Beyerdynamic T5p 2nd generation

    Did you do any modification to head T5p's or is it straight out of the box. I always found them a little clampy as well as heavy (can't do much about that). I love the T5p an T1 sound, but couldn't seem to keep wearing them for hours and hours. I've had a lot of luck with Fostex TH series...

    Koss KSC75's. Dont Forget This Giant Killer in all the ''Hidden Gem'' Hype.

    Definitely second for that stepped drill bit, it'll allow you to put a nice chamfer on the edge of the holes and keep the driver from striking any of the burrs. I remember when I first started getting into modifying the venerable KSC75's and I used a razor blade to deburr the edges! :dt880smile...

      Thanks for the review Kahster! Definitely have been working hard to make sure the products I put out have coverage if anything goes wrong. First and foremost is making sure everyone is happy with their cable for years to come!

    Optimal Portable Aux Cord Length

      That's kind of a personal opinion thing. If you're asking sonically, then you could make a cable that is about 20ft long before you start running into interference issues on a shielded cable. But from pocket to head, I'd follow the status quo. I'm pretty sure large companies like westone and...

    Bluetooth for customs?

      Man Fiio is always making crazy crap. Can't believe I haven't heard of this yet. I'll have to let customers know if they ask me about mic functionality. Great find guys.
