    Really good job!
    but I still can't understand why so much not necessarily adapters for the headphones.
    You could create enough long cable for each of the 7 headphones.
    I still cant understand why people create this dual out-come cables that you have to rest and feel them on your shoulders.

    but, still it's a great work!

    The 6 pair of headphone adapters and other 12 adapters, all together took 17 meter of the copper wire (after 4 wire braiding).

    If I had gone with full blown cable for each headphone, a 2 meter 8 wire braid would take about 18 meter of the copper wire.... times 6...
    these wires are expensive already, unbiraded.. can't afford going that way.

    do you twisted the cables by yourself ?
     
  4. zmhaha
    No. the braid was done by the wire seller at extra cost. The labor is not expensive there. Like $20-$25 to braid a 1.5meter one.
    But basically they did not charge me anything for the wire braiding because I bought like 50 meters of their TOTL product all at once.

    I basically just do the shopping, wires, connectors, etc.. and all the communications..
    all actual cable making are done by my cable maker and the wire seller. Took me about a week to get everything together, like figuring out what I want, which style, etc..
    Another 3 days for my cable maker to solder like 50 joints.. Then 3 days of DHL express, these chunk of metal arrived today.

    I decently understand you, I put the same connection on many headphones and plan to make it on more.
    I just wanted to adjust one cable for all .
    and many say me that the better way is to buy new one expensive that accept all the option with balanced unplugged cable

    This is my first prototype
    after that I create my most loved balanced cable

    then mode the original ones to this connector

    yea man... Yesterday, my desk was a complete mess with all the cables from 6 pairs of headphones hanging down there... now its completely free.

    I wish I had the determination to rescoket all the headphones... but i don't...

    On most (if not on them all) of them this impossible!

    my headphones cheaper the your's and not having this functions of unplugged cables like yours ...

    Sweet Jesus look at all of those furutech connectors! Total baller :)

    Was the wire from Wan Lung?

    Damn super clean stuff, and like kingkikapu said, I can't even afford to put so much furutech on my gear!

    Hey Brian how does the silk sleeving do when used around traditional wire instead of your silk wrapped stuff?

    I have some Neotech 24 awg left over and am curious to put it in some silk.

    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.

    I’ve got a solder pot and a bar of 4% silver kester solder. I have some silver litz kicking around as well. Nice stuff. Pricey, but nice. Hard to beat.
     
  13. Pingupenguins
    Thats the good stuff! Yeah it can be, just need to know where to look. :wink:

    Two new cables from this weekend. Balanced 4 pin XLR to HD 650/6XX/600 connectors, sleeved in paracord with heatshrink at the Y split. And then a 4 pin XLR to TRS 6.35mm.

    Update 2/13 - This cable was sold. I take commissions if anyone is interested.

    I absolutely LOVE the modular system and I hope to create something similar for myself at some point. Brilliant stuff. I'd probably move the termination to just below the split though so you don't have two separate little cables for every headphone connector.
