Harvested an old Cardas Headphone cable to make a balanced cable for the HD800. Neutrik 4-pin XLR connectors. The HD800 connectors are from Parts Connecxion and a royal PITA to work with.  

Even scarier

I made a cable

I'm more interested with how they secure the wires. I've had some cheapo banana jacks in the past and they use grub screws. No bueno, feels like the wires will shear right off. This one looks good.

Thanks!

I am working on a project that has no built in strain relief. Is there some suggested way to perhaps use an adhesive on the PCB and soldered connections, but allow the larger jacket to still rotate, or should I just fill the housing with adhesive and immobilize the cable within the housing?

is there a recommended adhesive to do this sort of thing?

Hi! I have _a lot_ of speaker cable on hand - all DH Labs - Q-10 ($25/ft), T-14 ($10/ft) and Odyssey ($4/ft).

I am going to be making up a couple sets of cables and would be happy to make some extra sets - I use nice sleeving I use on my cables and can work with you on termination.

I have a 12’ pair and 6’ pair of the Q-10. This can be terminated for biwire (so there are four wires)

I have two 10’ pair of the T-14, but it can only be a single run (two wires) - but could do this as a “shotgun” biwire if someone wanted both sets (internal to a single sleeve or separate sleeves). 

I can’t find the Odyssey - but will keep looking for it.

I need to order more sleeving though.

Any good starquad cable makes a perfect balanced cable for headphones. Like the Mogami or Belden.

In fact the way overpriced Black Dragon is a starquad as well. 

What, exactly, was this in response to?
