You do not need thik wires. 22AWG is fine.
You only need to go thicker if the wire is long and you want some stiffness.
Wire, PTFE Jacket, 22 AWG Stranded, Silver-Plated Copper, White

Gold plated 4mm banana is also perfect.
It is only a few mA afterall.

Sorry there's NO explanation there and only a sure-fire way to immediately blow up your headphones....

Here's some good explanations, too:
