So I made my first attempt at custom mic cables today. I bought cable off of eBay and 90* ends for both sides. The wires are supposed to be good and have two + leads, two - leads and the shielding. I pulled apart an off the shelf cable I had and copied it. The mic cable works but the ground noise is TERRIBLE. I tried splitting the shield between the post and the housing and that didn't work. I removed the ground from the male end and that didn't work. And last I routed as you see in the pics to no avail.
So, I know there are some audio guys one here; what am I doing wrong? I know it's not the mic or board because OTS cables sound great.
