    All the dust cap sellers are from china, your only chances is aliexpress if you want international shipping.

    Custom connector I saw in Hong Kong, you can interchange 3.5, 4.4 or 2.5.

    That is another connector into an adapter, cool idea :)

    It's a custom made plug, cost for the 4.4 is about 41 USD a set, I came across this in one of the shops when I ask about rewiring.

    That is a great idea and the cable looks nice. Do they have a website or a store in Taobao?

    I'm not sure, when I go pass them in the next few days, i'll ask if they do online or mail order.

    I went to Ace Hardware and found an automotive rubber bumper that works perfectly as a dust plug. Total $1.89 USD. I already had the 3.5mm plugs. 20170715_145536.jpg 20170715_145551.jpg

    Yeah, I know, but what I am saying is that a plug on top of a plug is similar to adapter on top of adapter.....smaller, but more solder joints, good idea though as the current adapters are too bulky and large

    Good find aboves :)

    you are getting me confused.

    from the first photo, the male is soldered direct to the cable, the male is then pluged into the adapter at the back, it has 4 contacts, and a little section sticking out so you can only plug the male in one direction, the adapter you can choose either 2.5, 3.5 or 4.4, you just pay for extra adapters if you want more.

    Time for another lengthy listening session. I just used Deoxit to clean the connectors on 20170715_162339.jpg my Shure SE846 in-ear-monitors. Switched to a new cable as well. The 4.4mm ALO Reference 8 arrives Monday.
