    looking to build a set of detachable cables for some Yamaha orthos. What type of male/female connectors should I be looking for? A2Dc? Mini 1/8?

    Do you mean to plug into the headphone cup at one end and into an amp at the other end?

    If so, male 3.5mm stereo plugs at each end (or maybe 1/4 inch male plug at the amp end depending on your equipment), like Neutrik Rean NYS231BG, connected by mini shielded twisted pair mic cable like Canare L-2E5. Very flexible and sturdy. Parts Express has the connectors, and Redco Audio sells L-2E5 by the foot.
