They are just LeMo connectors, you can download the data catalog and figure out what you would need.

anyways, this was done by me a while ago for my Utopia and I saved it up. This is exactly what you will need for Utopia female . Price is 1 connector and not a pair

have fun

CEMA Electro Acousti cables are highly recommended in the cheap/bang for buck cables thread. They also sell DIY wire/plugs etc. What caught my eye was their UPOCC litz copper wires in 4-core round braided sections:

I reckon its the same wire they use in their mid level cables. For $9.66 USD (1.25m) you have enough wire for a 4 ft iem cable.

Cost about $15 USD in total to make this cable!!! amazing value

Bought 3 x 1.25m, came in a continuous 3.75m

My previous post was 4 strand cable : https://www.head-fi.org/threads/diy-cable-gallery.71148/post-15445972

I recently made an 8 strand version of the same cable:

8strand round braid is easy to make a mistake, ruining the braiding sequence and having to start over again. After 3 tries i finished the whole cable and love how much more premium it feels over the 4 strand version.
