hi guys,
            I am trying to make an upgrade cable for my ultimate ears. Everything else is pretty straightforward, but I am a bit stuck on the 2-pin connectors for the cable.
 
I have already searched the forums for information about this - I know about a guy in HK whom you need to wire 8$ or so for a pair of connectors, etc. I also read up on people recycling VGA pins for this.
 
Can anybody help out with their experiences in making a 2-pin connector ? What pins did you use - did you use epoxy to get the spacing right ?
 
help..

why not solder just two pins on the ends.?If they will go in tight enouph, they will be secure and will not fall out.

I had the same problem. I went to the basement and had a look to my electronic garbage. (Old receiver, printer, etc.) There where a connector plug that was identically - just it was in a row of 8. So i cutted them with a carpet cutter and a hammer in 4 pieces giving me 2 pins each with the white sperator plastic in the middle.
 
Even if its not 100% Fitting - it will bend to fit. Its not gold plated but its for my DIY cables its ok to me.
