I am new and Need some help w/ a cable build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have been reading this site and others researching making my first set of custom cables. I have a pretty good idea of what to do, but have a couple of questions.

So I have the shure se425 clear. Using the wiki page I saw that the mmcx connector uses the center pole for the signal and the shell for the Ground. When my last cable broke I disected out the mmcx and notice there are three poles and wire was soldered to all three poles. I then looked closely at the female mmcx on the headphone and noticed that the headphone is wired to two poles and the third is not wired.

This is my question why would all three poles have wire connected on the male end and only two poles be wired on the female? Is the wiki incorrect? Do I need more wire then I originally thought(to wire the third pole)?

Thanks for the help

Probably to save money as they may not make that connector in the mono variety.

Just a guess.
