  Got them here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/272206731382?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Very cool, and they give you surface mount resistors. Those should be fun for the folks who have not worked with them before. A pair of very pointed tweezers would come in handy or some good quality needle nose pliers.

My best attempt at making a mini to mini interconnect yet.
 
Specs:
Conron 3.5mm Jack
Hakugei Copper Wire
SeaHF Silver Foil Wire
SeaHF Silver Plated Wire
12 conductors total ( 3 conductors for both the L&R channel, while 6 conductors for G)
Each  channel consists of 1 x Hakugei Copper Wire, 1 x SeaHF Silver Foil Wire, 1 x SeaHF Silver Plated Wire (whilst G consists of 2 ea)
 
Note the best braiding work, but hell, it is quite hard to do it with such limited lengths to work with.

Use this Minyak Kayu Putih to erase the heatshrink mark, its even better than acetone.

I haven't made any cables in a while.
I made this one a couple of weeks ago.  Actually a rebuilt cable, the old one started crapping out on me last year, probably because it was made using reused parts from a cable that was already built and included with a purchase of used equipment in 2014.  That was probably not a very smart idea.
I like to stick to the "red = right channel" convention, like commercial cables.  So long as I don't forget to; I did the other time.
All new parts this time, and thicker Mogami 22awg conductors, too.
Y-split is close to the 3.5mm so I can hook things up to powered speakers that are several feet apart from time to time, as well as to use up what was left of that lovely electric blue paracord.

Sweet!
Your Grado reminds me of this one.  I like yours better, though.

A member of the Danish head-Fi community made this 3D printed Y-split :)
