Is the Mogami Miniquad an alright wire for a recable diy or would some generic TFC hook-up wire or even OFC hook-up wire be just as good?

+1 for Mogami W2893!  ...or W2534 stripped out of jacket and re-sleeved with Paracord.

Thank you for using the item number. I was about to place an order for W2799 which looks to have a thicker casing and less capacitance? idk what that even means lol.

I really like the paracord idea. Is it possible to do it with the W2893? What size is easiest to work with?
 
 
I have a thread up asking for help with all of this type of stuff because I'm so new to this. If you get a chance and care to help me out feel free to look it over and tell me what im missing.

The 2534 is much stiffer. If you take a look here you'll see that the 2534 is more heavily insulated, has higher over all gauge and coarser individual strand gauge, all making it less flexible.
The 26AWG of the 2893 is more than sufficient for a headphone cable, and the differences in capacitance are trivial.

I could be wrong, but I believe the W2893 is 4 strands of 28awg and the W2534 is 4 strands of 24awg.
