Default looping recording: diy cable


I am going to diy a cable for looping recording.

I have read that using the right ohm of cable is important.

Is it right to use 110 ohm cable with 3.5mm headphone jack on the both end?

Does different type of 3.5mm headphone jack use different ohm of cable?

This is an audio signal, and the characteristic impedance (the "110 ohm" value) of the cable doesn't matter:
Transmission line impedance is critical in some applications, and not so critical in others. In analog audio, particularly, impedance is basically a nonfactor--because at the relatively low frequencies involved in analog audio, and at anything approaching ordinary lengths, any reasonably designed cable will effectively "pass through" the impedance of the devices at either end--and the input and output impedances of line-level analog audio devices themselves are usually not critical. For analog audio cables, other design considerations like shielding and capacitance may be very important, but impedance really is not.

You can use just about any shielded cable as long as you wire it correctly.

Good to hear. Thank you.

Can you recommend me a shielded cable?
