I know this idea is easier said than done but wouldn’t this be a great idea?
I know that ursine had made the cable that terminated at the y with a minixlr so that the main cable could be swapped. However the issue is that mini xlr can be kind of heavy and not look as great.
I’m currently having y cables made by capistrano cables and main cables made by hart.
However, wouldn’t 4.4 or 2.5 connectors work much better? I know the pin out is more difficult than mini xlr and the issue that they don’t hold as well it hear me out.
If you’re hand enough. Couldn’t you buy male and female 2.5 mm connectors like these ones and then just make some housings for them that are threaded so that you could just screw them together?

Then the cable would be like this,
Headphone connector > y cable > y cable terminates in a threaded 2.5 female > 2.5 male inserted and threaded over > basically any termination you need for your source.
I mean theoretically this would be much lighter and if you make it right, when they are threaded together, they would basically look just like a hardware split.
I’m not super handy but I feel like this could be done if you were handy and it would be legit! All the benefit of hart and ursine cables but so much less cumbersome. I would personally buy the shit out of these cables.
