iPhone cable (with mic) for UE or JH IEM's - Page 10

post #136 of 138
My experience, buy a logitech ue900 cable, it's 20 bucks. Then ship it off to someone who is ok with retermination of the IEM connectors. Total like 40-50 bucks. I had no issue finding someone willing to do the termination in Europe at least.

I've been using a triple fi 10 cable in mine for a year now.  One thing I wasn't sure of was which way to face the pin as I inserted it to not have the polarity 180 out of phase.

 

How can I test that?

 

I have a standard electronic multi meter.

Talking with my brother about how to test polarity of my JH cables, he gave me the idea to measure the resistance on the original cable, then I could match that up with my replacement cables... such a simple idea, yet I never thought about doing that.

 

I did have my cables out of phase.

 

Here are the results I found.  You can easily test your replacement cables polarity using a resistance meter (Ohm meter).  I used my multi meter, and the resistance was around 1.6 ohms on my JH cable, and around 1 ohm on my UE cable.  Not sure if that would make a sound quality difference or not.  But I now know my polarity is correct.

 

Anyway, Enjoy:
