Got them in Vancouver at Lees Electronic Components for 9 dollars a pair and have seen them on ebay for more.

A quick look on thier website and I could not see the exact ones listed but if you are in Vancouver swing by and ask them. They have a huge opening 9 or 11 mm.

Yes! Finally a worthy update! And an amazing one while you're at it!
Your skill improved dramatically between this one and the D1001, seriously!
Very neat y-split, nicely done connectors and though I personally don't like the metal near the plug, it's still a very nice looking cable!

I really like that braid job man. Ive always wanted to try the flat braid but ive never needed to use that many cables.

I needed a 1/4" to 1/8" adaptor but the Grado ones they sell over here are pretty expensive; and the eBay generic ones aren't much cheaper and look pretty ugly. So I went and made one myself. The Neutrik connectors were so much fun to work with (again hard to find where I am unless I buy online, and kinda pricey).

Practice one with scraps and cheap connectors...

And now a proper one!

Found it on here in some thread so possibly. Its fimo classic. But the jack plugs are also cut to the extreme, with the soldering point for the left channel actually being INSIDE the plug itself. They stick out just 4-5mm for the smallest of the two and thats including the clay
