New enthusiast here.

What are some well-tested good supplier for DIY iem cables? The 2.5/3.5/4.4 connector, and mmcx/2pin suppliers?
What country are you in, buddy?

I've made a few new cables recently which I'll share soon, but I wanted to share this one because I feel its a bit different from the norm...

Here is my modular build - the jack termination is actually a screw-on set of 2.5mm balanced/3.5mm SE/3.5mm balanced and 4.4mm balanced. No adapters needed anywhere near this baby :)

Comments and feedback welcome

I think this is one of my favourite DIY cables, colour-wise. It doesn't match with anything I own, but I really like how this one came out

In terms of raw material suppliers (wire, Y-split, mmcx/2pin, 2.5/3.5/4.4 jack) which ones are good on taobao / aliexpress ?
QYFANG have some great options for both Y-splits and source terminations, they're worth checking out at least.

WIRE
I buy the braided sections from aliexpress Electro Acousti: refer to my post HERE


You can buy length by selecting quantity x length and it come in a long continuous section. Saves time on braiding process, and cheap when you consider you are getting 4/8 wires per length (for example 1ft of 4 wires = 4 ft of wire)

2 Pin Connectors

Bought mine from here: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/10set-20pcs...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Plugs

I have been buying plugs from this seller: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/20pcs-Stere...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Create some adapter for my old amp XLR4pin-> TRS (from quality RCA Cable)
the secend is TRS extender.
unfortunately I had only 4pole connector, so I used it and short the the top 2 pins
made from broken USB IPAD charging cable (+-5V is for GND and DATA+ DATA- for R+ L+).

I haven’t built a HD580/HD600/HD650 cable for like 8-9 years. Due to the need for a high impedance ‘phones for trial with the forthcoming OTL tube amp, I grabbed a pair of HD58X and built a balanced cable too. So far so good out of my balanced Dynalo-Dynahi.
