Hey all, I'm joining the "broken cable" v-moda group today, as my v-moda vibe's right channel lost connection underneath the strain relief of the ipod button. Before deciding to just buy a new pair of IEMs that will break again, I'm thinking about recabling them instead. Why? Because I still like having IEM's with an ipod button and a mic, so I can answer calls and talk without getting my phone out of my pocket. I have access to fine soldering tools too. For those unfamiliar, this is the schematic of the v-moda vibe ii's: Code: TRRS |--3 lead wire----mic---2 lead wire--bud (R) 3.5mm----------4 lead wire------ipod button---| plug |--2 lead wire-----------------------bud (L) Here's what I'm thinking of buying as replacements so far: TRRS plug: metal 4 conductor plug - $5.80 - http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/kf-p035m4.htm 4 lead wire: 3 feet of Mogami W2893 (26AWG) - $1.28/ft ~ $3.80/3feet - http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/t-2893.htm 3 lead wire: What should I use? 2 lead wire: 2 feet of Mogami superflex mini cable (31 AWG) - $0.38/ft ~ $0.76/2ft http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/t-2444.htm Total cost: ~10 bucks to make a quality, lightweight, iphone earbud setup. I also plan to get some comply foam I have no idea what to use as a mini 3-lead wire replacement. I want something insulated because I will be stuffing these into my bag daily and don't want any snags. and I still want something small. Any suggestions?
