Question 3.5 mm Cable advice

Hi I want to build some 3.5 mm audio Jack cables but very short lengths as they are for a headphone amplifier. I can get the Jacks from CPC but what type of cable would be the best ( within reason) to use ? I know oxygen free is supposed to be the best but what do I look for if I buy other cables?

All plugs including inexpensive chinese ones will do the job.

Interconnects or headphone cables? In either case flexible copper conductor surrounded by flexible insulation seeems to be the best value for money, but for headphones themselves low weight and extra flexibility might be useful.
