Cause I didn't include one. It's a simple split from the braid to two twisted cables per channel.


 
How do you keep the upper wires from unravelling/untwisting?

I twisted them before soldering and they naturally stayed in that position. It's a little hard to explain without actually trying it out, sorry

Btw, bought some Type 1 Paracord to see if I can sheathe the same wires in the fabric as my friend was complaining of microphonics cause of the Techflex. I assume it's possible to remove the inner core the same way as with 550 Paracord, right?

Yep. The difference is in the number of cores and diameter. Still just as easy to get the core out of the Type 1.

Finished three cables!
 
1. A 4-wire MMCX cable for my current earphones.
Eidolic MMCX connectors, and an old Eidolic 3.5mm recycled from an old project.

 
2. A 8-wire 2-pin cable for a future set of CIEMs.
Eidolic 2 pins and an Oyaide Rhodium 3.5mm.

 
3. A 12-wire mini to mini interconnect.
2x Generic 3.5mm connectors.

 
All wire was roughly 0.8mm diameter.

I made few cables for my friends and family but not much for me so it was about time to make it right so I made a nice extension between my Beyers DT831 and Xonar Essence STX. It is made of Tasker TSK1034 cable and Neutrik NP2X-B + NJ3FC6-BAG connectors.
 

After shopping :)
 

Finished work

Cranked out a pair of 3 Foot RCA Cables today - I'm relocating my power amp
and needed a longer cable.
 
Cable - Moon Audio Black Dragon
RCA's - HGA LOK
 
The LOK RCA's are absolutely fantastic - I'll never use another connector again!!

Need some help guys. I've got a furutech fp704 plug. Wiring a cable for hifiman he series. Trying to get a diagram for which wire goes where. Also need a little help with the he connectors. Thanks

Just finished making this, FiiO-to-Mojo coax cable - generic TRRS on the FiiO side and TRS on the Mojo side (which the RS is shorted), then some Nexans RG179 coax cable in between.
 

 
Built this one last week with Rean TS and generic TRRS. Same Nexans coax cable but with sleeve.

I see you are using a 4 conductor 1/8 jack.  I am looking for an in line mic that I can use to control volume, and answering my Samsung S4.  Did you put a control in, and if you did, where did you get it?  I have played on my own braid a few months ago but couldn't handle the MMCX connectors. Please let me know if you did, where they can be acquired.
Thanks a lot.
  Some eye candy
