Cut off the outer black cover and use the inner mogami wires?

Changed the sound of the phone for better or worse, the cable did not give noise interference due to lack of original shielding?

I plan to do the same with mogami left over here.
Most headphone cables aren't shielded, and if they do still have a shield, not connected anyway.

I made a bunch of Moon Black Dragon cables, its basically just a fancy Mogami Quad cable. I asked them directly if they connect the shield to the ground lug (XLR) or S (TRS) at the amp end and they said yes. Makes sense, anything picked up drains somewhere.

When I opened a few legit Moon Black Dragon cables for people getting me to reterminate them, nope. Just had the shielding cut and wrapped off.

Most expensive cable I’ve made yet, silver, gold and palladium. With 6 tritium tubes installed on the y-split bead. Roughly 300$ in materials..

Bough for the sake of my customers (testing materials) needless to say it wasn’t worth the extra $

FYI your info seems really close to impersonating @skedra from VikingWeaveCables. Even have the same first name in Instagram.

I haven’t heard of him, but found out AFTER choosing the name that Viking-acoustic is a company based in Berlin, but they don’t really push for custom cables made for headphones that much. And Viking name should be used by true vikings Norwegian’s. So I didn’t bother changing the name. And Viking theme is close to my heart.

But it bothers me if anyone accuse me of impersonating anyone, if you have any suggestions on name change I’m open for discussion in pm.

Wasn’t trying to accuse at all. Just giving a heads-up as he’s a friend and prolific custom cable maker in the headphone circles.

Figured it would be good for all parties to know earlier rather than later.
