My first two attempts at diy cables during this past month. There's another power cable I made but it's hooked up to my subwoofer and I'm too lazy to take it off for photo. Headphone/iem cables will be my next targets though they look more complicated to solder?

RCA connectors and cable from ebay. Looks like knock off but quality is very good for the price I paid!

Genuine Neotech stuffs I got from Partsconnexion and Take Five Audio. Cable is NEI-3002 and connectors are DG-201. Moderately priced cable but very thick and difficult to work with (for a newbie like me anyway). Connectors are super solid. Don't know why I need two pairs of interconnects I mostly use 3.5mm to 3.5mm cables lol.

Aeon Cable - 1.jpg
Made a black/midnight blue cable to complement my Aeon Flow Closed. Originally I had a Neutrik XLR on the end, but upgraded to the new Eidolic. I was mostly expecting it to just be jewelry, but has proved to be a serious sonic upgrade over the Neutrik. Wire is 22 AWG OCC SPC from Norne. Good stuff.

Well, I forgot to post my DIY ventures here. But here's my DIY Hakugei cable for my Etymotic ER2XR.

I used roughly 5.5 metres of Hakugei wire, and did a 4-braid cable for my ER2XR. The wire is Hakugei 5N OCC "Coffee", pure copper wire. 0.83mm OD, with 60 strands. However, the envelope that came with the wire stated it was 7N OCC instead. I suppose I got a free upgrade from the seller. Cable works great, but has a lot of microphonics. Since it's ety, I expected that.
