  I'm curious about the length.  Looks pretty short.  Nothing wrong with being short (said the 6' 5" man :wink:

 
Thanks! Its kind-of my first time all by myself haha As for length, it should be around 1.5m ~ 1.6m perfect length for my daily desktop use!

Where did you buy the shakmod sleeving?

I got it from this seller http://www.ebay.com/itm/331149417022 
PS: He don't communicate at all when I PM him but he ships the product at least

Man, everyone's looks so professional.

I wish I knew about this thread before I made mine!










The heat shrink is a bit stiff for my liking, but it does the job


Hey everyone has to start somewhere. I know there are people following this thread that know my stuff didn't start out so... Well, whatever it is now. Haha

I think that looks pretty nice though!

My DIY Cable

I uses 24AWG Pure Copper Silver Plated cable, Neutrk Jack and Shakmod cable sleeve.

For each channel, I use double 24AWG Pure Copper Silver Plated cable and a total of 14 strands. 

Couldn't have done it without help from both offline and online! 


Nice job Billy :tongue_smile:......but you actually did order a 3.5mm jack and waiting for the delivery correct? And you decided to use this 6.3mm jack, cldnt resist the delay......

all these grados got me inspired
i've had these cedar cups sitting around for a couple months
wanted to do a removable cable but didn't want to hack up these cups
 
decided to try a 4-strand braid for the first time 
not so easy with a bad hand but while not perfect, not too bad
 
the sound quality is amazing
