Unsual headphone plug

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello Head-Fiers!

 

Recently i broke the jack plug on my AKG K 518 DJ. 

At first, i thought it was the end of my AKG but i googled and lurked a bit on this website and there was hope! So i ordered a couple 3.5 mm jack plugs and found my old soldering iron and was ready to fix my headphone. Everything went fine until i unscrewed my phone plug.

As you can see in the picture here http://imgur.com/1QdowZ9 there is a hole for the right wire and a hole for the left wire, but no for the ground wire.

So my question is, what should i do with my ground wire?

This is the first time i fix a pair of headphones, so bear over with my newbieness regular_smile%20.gif.

You just solder the ground to the large tab
