    Looking for a very specific mini-to-mini cable

    Sorry to have to resort to such a specific question, but perhaps one of you can save me from another hour of googling/searching.

    I'm looking for a *thin* miniplug-to-miniplug stereo cable with right angle adapters that is approx 12"-18" long (shorter the better).

    This is the closest thing I've found: http://www.headphone.com/products/ca...mini-cable.php

    Which is nearly perfect but the cable is about twice the thickness of what I'm looking for. I would very much like something that has cabling about as thick as those found on typical consumer level headphones.

    Thanks for any leads!

    I guess I should elaborate. You can buy some 3 conductor cable at the gauge you like and slap 2 connectors on it.

    The second option (which is sometimes cheaper): Buy two pairs of $1-$2 ear-bud headphones and splice the two cables together to form a single patch cable. This option is pretty gnarly because your guaranteed to have the cable be as thick as consumer-grade headphones. Watch out though: Alot of manufactures do not insulate the seperate conductors. Instead, each fiber is laquered a different color.. So you have to group the two sets of fibers and glob them together with solder. Tell me if this makes sense...
