Who makes the lightest weight xlr out there?
I was bored last night and decided to recable my D2000. The design makes it VERY easy to recable because there is a small circuit board with pads to solder to and no chance to mess up the voice coil wires.
I recabled with belden 1804a and terminated temporarily to mini trs, but I would like to terminate balanced. I have some neutrik 3pin xlr, but they are really heavy; is there a light weight 3pin xlr out there, or should I terminate with a single 4pin xlr? I do not yet have a balanced amp, so I can build that to match my headphones.
Also, what would be a good sleeving material to use and who supplies it?

Thanks

Maybe nylon multifilament? I got mines from wirecare.com, the nylon multifilament is flexible and nice, but maybe hard to work with due to the fingertrap aspect of the expandable sleeving.

Will the weight of the XLR plug bother you that much? You won't be carrying it on the go right? Actually I see your concern, I sometimes want to use it with my portable gear too...
