    Not sure what the connector is called, but just about any cable maker you buy from will offer a "mrspeakers alpha dog or ether" option when setting up your order.  Don't know if the connectors are unique to MrSpeakers.  Sounds like you will be using your headphones more often with an SE connection.  If not, you might consider getting a XLR to SE adapter for your balanced cable, as it would probably be cheaper than buying a separate balanced cable.

    Just get an XLR to 1/4" SE adapter. That way you can use it for either balanced or SE. Cheers

    My understanding is that it would simply be a product offered on their website after the first batches. If there is a deadline I'd think it's still a ways out.

    I agree with what the others said. Get XLR and then a SE adapter (personally would go for 3.5mm). You can go balanced to single ended but not vice versa so makes more sense to only have 1 cable and an adapter than 2 separate cables YMMV though :D

    I don't think there is any deadline. Click on link below and look on the right hand side of the page and you will see the form that you will need to fill out.

    The most cost effective method is to use an XLR to 3.5mm adapter cable - XLR to 3.5mm Jack or XLR to 6.35mm adapter cable - XLR to 6.35mm Jack
    Your Chord Hugo has both headphone jacks 3.5mm and 6.35mm so you could use either adapter. Oops, I have these 2 adapters but I see they are no longer available from this vendor but they are what you want. UPDATE: The cables are now available once again from this vendor on Amazon.

    Thanks everyone, yes I think I will go the adaptor way.
    And yes, the connectors on the Ether are Hirose, I found it HERE.
    Thanks again, really appreciate your help!

    Another way is to terminate your cable in 2.5 mm trrs and get adaptors (instead of adaptor cables) for them. IMO It makes everything more tidy as adaptors are short without any cable length
  12. Rowethren
    Only problem with that is when you use adaptors instead of cables it tends to put more force into the connectors and considering how fragile 2.5mm and 3.5mm jack ports are already I feel that is just asking for trouble.

    This is particularly true if you use something like a metal 1/4 to 1/8, that's a lot of cantilevered weight on a 1/8 jack. However, if you use a universal balanced plug and have adaptors with at least 6" of length you won't stress the jacks.

    Indeed, exactly what I have done with my Ether Flow cable. We can do impressions of the new Macbook Pro owners with our huge piles of adaptor cables hehe [​IMG]

    I went the 2.5mm with adaptor route and I wouldn't do it again.
