I'm a newbie, looking into building some DIY IEM cables, I just want to know how to solder them? Usually IEM cables have 4 wire and what to solder on ground?

You should be able to test the existing cable with a multimeter, then match that.

Has anyone found a good source for TRRS mini jacks?  This is like a 3.5mm stereo jack but with an extra ring (for microphone).  I've found a few plug sources but very few socket sources.  Additionally, the quality level is unclear (will the tabs break, how is the strain relief, etc.).  I'm modding a $150 set of headphones with a modmic and want to run the cable into the earcup (via mono plug) and out (TRRS plug).  Any tips or personal experience would be appreciated!

 

Options I've found -->

Hi, I have to repair my earbuds with a 2mm cable (diameter).

I bought a neutrik NYS231BG stereo plug but it seems to be too big to hold the cable.

On the neutrik site, i saw that plugs NTP3RC and NTP3RC-B which support cable from 2mm to 4mm.

Is there really a holding difference ?

Do you have another product to recommend for this little 2mm cable ?

 

Thanks

The holding difference will affect strain relief, but you could just build up the cable diameter using heat-shrink tubing for the plug with the larger opening.

 

I prefer using right-angle plugs with portable devices and straight plugs with desktop devices. Presumably your earbuds will be for portable use, so why not just use one of the NTP3RC plugs?

Thanks.

Because i ever bought a NYS231BG and i don't know if i should mount it, or buy the NTP3RC ;)

 

EDIT : So i finally bought the NTP3RC.It has a chuck strain relief that hold my little 2mm cable.It was the good choice.

Mogami W2893 wire with Neutrik NTP3RC-B 3.5mm connectors used to make dslr audio cable for preamp or audio recorder mounted on camera. The lower half of the strain relief was removed and slits were cut in the rubber ends. The holes did not have to be drilled out.

I have a question for everyone,

 

I'm actually looking for a plug to use on a cable I made for my wired headphones. I'm looking for something that I can attach the wires to without soldering them, just until I can get a new soldering iron. Does anyone know of a good plug?

 

EDIT: I found this but I realized I need a right-angle plug as my headphones are usually on-the-go with me, plus I use my tablet in landscape mode alot. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Good-Promotion-Excellent-Quality-Golden-3-5mm-4-Pole-Male-Repair-Headphones-Audio-Jack-Plug-Connector/32326031478.html
