    The wire I used is pure silver wire, inside the housing.

    I want to recable Audio-Technica ES7 and I am looking for a guide on what to buy in terms of cables / instruments (I have a soldering iron). Is there a white cable ready for recabling (with minimum steps on my part).

    Lunashops.com has many mostly made cables.

    Hello All,

    I want to make a cable for me new M1060s. I received Rev2, which has dual 2.5mm mono plugs. My questions is terminating the cables to the mono side. I was looking at 4 core cables. I take it two pairs go to each side and one of the wires from the pairs will be the ground?

    I was looking at these two type of cables:

    Oops, I did it again. This one is also mogami quad cable, 8 conductor. I haven't decided which headphones to terminate it for, probably Ether C.

    Hand braided using a kumihimo disc.

    Oi, I feel my feel arthritis acting up just looking at those tight woven braids! (great work though)
     
  11. Allanmarcus
    Thanks folks.

    BTW, the tight braid isn't that hard with the kumihimo disc. Still, the braiding probably took 8-10 hours over a few days.

    Just wrapped up my balanced cable for my Fostex TH-X00. I wanted an all-gold-and-black look to complement the headphones. It was my first braid... I wanted something super lightweight to replace the vacuum cleaner cord they came with. I refinished a bolt spacer for the y-split cover.

    Balanced retermination by @PETEREK and I've got the Dekoni elite sheepskin pads on there.

    So I decided to try these little Y splitters from ebay:

    They are very inexpensive, and only took about a week to arrive. They are also pretty small. I wanted to use one for the red and black cable I made recently (see a few posts back). Unfortunately the little holes were just small enough that they scrapped the wire insolation off as I moved it down the cable! So, I unbraided the section between the Y and the tips and was able to feed the 4 wires into each hole. I then rebraided. Fun! I think it turned out pretty well.

    I'm still waiting for the tips to arrive, then I can terminate it properly.

    Just competed my first cable. Sad I couldn't use the sleeving I bought for the longer side.

    Not sure if it attached.
