someone has idea to choose between neotech 2001 and 1002 for XLR interconnects? They were same price at HiFi collective so I was really not able to decide.
If I chose 1002 I have to use the shield as return, resulting no shield, if I chose 2001, I got worse connector since 1002 use upocc silver

Any suggestions?

I am sure this has been asked but i didn't find a solution so here goes. I have two multi wire (8 i believe) cables that i would like to replace the 3.5mm jack on due to them wearing out. One has a mic and one doesn't. Neither have any sort of colour coding on the wires or under the outer layer of rubber/plastic.

This is a giant pain in the arse as it means that the only way to repair them is to trace the wires to their mmcx terminators and connect accordingly to the new jack. Unless i am missing something, which is entirely possible as i haven't done this before. So is there any other way to know what wires to attach where? I have a multi meter so i guess i could try tracing them with that but i wouldn't know how right now.

Thanks in advance.

Your multimeter should have a continuity test setting (beeping mode) combine it with the connector wiring diagram and you should be able to figure it out.

Try using the continuity test on the multi meter, you'll have to mark the wires yourself as you go

I'm looking to replace the 2-pin IEM connectors on my Effect Audio Horus. I think they are brass conductors and I would rather have TeCu. This should yield a small improvement in sound right?

Can someone recommend the best sounding copper 2 pin connector. I'm looking at the PW Audio ones carried by Music Sanctuary. https://music-sanctuary.com/collections/diy-parts/products/pwaudio-diy-parts-and-adapters

Thanks!

Very good quality

Jacks from Neutrik (right angle; Neutrik – not Rean sub brand). Wire/cable does not matter much as it will be probably < 10 cm. Any stranded copper or silvered copper with 3 wires, flexible even at low temperatures.

I am looking to rewire a broken Beyerdynamic MX300 (1. Gen) in the sooner future once I got to pick it up. I'd like to have it end in a 4-Pole 3.5mm jack. Does anyone know where I can find reliable jacks and plugs (for splitting the 4-pole into 2 jacks for PC usage) for that case? I haven't found anything but super cheap looking plugs on Aliexpress.
Thanks in advance - reading this thread has been a great help already :D

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know where I can buy connectors from the manufacturer Aec Connectors Co., Ltd. from Taiwan?
I contacted them, but they only sell large batches of at least 1000 pieces...:thinking:

^ Sexy looking cable.

Can anyone point me towards some cable making and soldering guides specially for headphones or that relate to headphones? Having some issues doing repairs that i think are related to tiny wires and small contact areas etc.

Thanks
