DIY 3.5mm cable

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I wondering if any of you know how to make this type of cable.
I've gotten that same cable 3 times from monoprice but it keeps failing on me in the exact same way!! one of the channels eventually starts cracking and then goes off...
So I was thinking of buying a thicker cable somewhere else or just making one myself..

Thanks!

Maybe it's the female connector?

You can make your own .. you'll need some decent quality 2 conductor shielded cable .. and the two connectors, but honestly I think you could do it cheaper by just buying a higher quality cable like this one . Those cheap cables always seem to fail at some point and we no longer use them in any install, its not worth the call back headache and expense, so buying a better cable from the start tends to cost us less.

Look mi sofa is around 14ft from the receiver, a straight shot nothing on the way and nothing pinching the cable..and I do not move as Im using it..I just use it to extend the cable of my headphones while I play video games at night that's all. Is that place reliable to buy from?

cables fail often in mobile applications because you are always twisting, bending, stressing it, but if a fixed cable fail u multiple times... something else is wrong.
