i know around here you guys are kings of the cable affairs and i wasnt sure where to look, but i was wondering if its possible to sleeve a pair of headphone, JVC Harx700 to be more exact. i know the cable is probably 1/8th in diameter and about 12 feet in length, is there sleeving small enough for this and if so whats the recommended place to get some, im pretty sure newegg or amazon dont carry this so thats out. thanks in advance.

You're better off asking in the audio section. Sleeving with any kind of sleeve might lead to problems as the sleeve rubs against the cable, you need a special type of sleeve. What I see others do is actually replace the cable altogether.

There are 1/8" sleeves which should work fine, though. Look for the seller furryletters in eBay. You want the "Clean Cut" sleeving.

thx for the reply, i was thinking i was gonna have to replace the cable all together, which i didnt wanna do bc honestly i dont wanna open the up to tinker with them and possibly messing something up since i would have to get a solder gun and learn how to use it, but it shouldnt be that hard, thanks again for the tip and ill do some more looking around.

The hardest part is opening them up. After that, just desolder the old cable and solder the new cable in. With a soldering iron it's usually as easy as touching the solder to melt it and remove the cable. Then, heat the metal for 1-2 seconds, put some solder on, remove the solder and THEN remove the iron.

ok, im thinking the cable wont really have a huge impact other than the actual quality of the cable or maybe a bit better signal through it, i could probably make it shorter since although 12ft is nice, i dont sit that far away from my mp3/pc and the cable makes like a snake around the room hehe. im gonna get a red/black one if i can.

Depending on what kind of cable they used the improvement could be significant.

I remember changing the cable that came with my electric guitar for a better quality one, the difference was night and day. All sorts of little sound defects were fixed.

This is more of an audiophile thing to do (changing the cables), but I figure since you want better looks you might as well go to town and get a nice quality one.

here's mine. I actually fixed the fan cable in the back, it's no longer visible.

8/10, need hole for those SATA cables and hide the DVD drive cables better by pulling them tighter.

yeah, as soon as I get a dremel, and it warms up, I'll be taking everything out and modding the case. Thanks for the input
