beats executive headphones 5 wire stereo jack

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I know this site and its followers are not fans of beats by Dre, and I'm not either. But i just acquired pair
beats executive for a price i couldn't pass on. I'm asking for any help. The 1/8 stereo connector has
been severed. Iam attempting to solder a new connector, but the wire has 5 leads and the only
connector i can get my hands on is a 3 pole stereo connector. Using that connector can i somehow wire
it up sothat the headphones work? Also i believe that these particular ones was a working display
model. Does anyone have a wiring diagram that i could follow?Anything would help, any suggestions
greatly appreciated.

Sorry, I can't really give you much help as I've never rewired any headphones, let alone Beats, but I don't like seeing your post ignored.

Do you have a DVM to check the continuity between the cables? You should be able to find a couple of pairs of cables with something between 30 and say 250 ohms resistance between them. There should be no connection between anything else.
