I'm impressed that 2012 was 2 years ago...

Back on topic, I'm 90% sure I'm going to get a pair of Grado SR60i's soon and sell my AKGs along with the spare/short cable I made for them.

According to my calculations you're actually 95.3% sure.

2. What is the best brand that you guys here usually familiar with: Neutrik, Vermouth. Viablue, Switchcraft or even Oyaide (but I read that Oyaide need small cables such as Yamamoto).

For the music i listen a lot to: vocal oriented, classical, blues, jazz and instrumental. Detail and clarity is my favourite... smile.gifsmile.gif

Thanks a lot.. smile.gifsmile.gif

The cable is too short for me. I need to make it 2.5 - 3 metres long, because I like to move around while gaming or in front of my PC.
And of course, because CAL's price is "reasonable" i decide to "why not?". I might as well learn the difference of the gold-plated, silver-plated or rhodium-plated audio-jack.

So, any suggestion?

Three pages later......Picked up SENNHEISER CX150 ear buds from Newegg today $14.99 for my iPhone.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826106589

At that price I had to check them out. If they're not any good I'll give it to my kids.

As long as it's a decent price, the signal transmission differences will probably be negligible to your ears.

I like the Amphenol connectors from Redco. Good looks, great price. Viablue connectors are very nice looking, but they're pricey.

Gold-plating is best for resistance to oxidation, but some other materials work just fine, particularly if you're not using these outside, or say on a boat deck. Worst-case scenario, you can clean the oxidation off, but it's not like you'd expect that to be an issue under normal usage. Anyway, gold is physically weaker, so for something you insert a lot, maybe tin plating is even better. It's really more about aesthetics than anything else. Same for the materials inside the cable, as long you're using conductors that, you know, actually conduct electricity. Possibly you might get better noise rejection (if there's not really any huge power equipment nearby that's creating noise you want to reject, then who cares?) with some geometries and cable designs.

Get something that looks nice and doesn't seem too stiff or heavy, or microphonic.

edit: personally, I'm lazy and would use an extension cable. It's also probably cheaper.
