I have an old pair of Shure SE115m+. I used to use them on my old iPhone and after switching to Android they still worked for listening but the buttons didn’t work. I did do a bit of research and Apple has a different pin configuration that my Galaxy S. I think the ground and the mic are switched. also these puppies are now about 5 years old and the sheathing is torn exposing the insulated wires. I know I can just buy something new but A) I would like to try this as a DIY project and B) it would be great to have these as a backup pair. And C) I really liked them
So here is the task at hand. I would like to
- Rewire the 3.5mm plug so the contacts match up with the controls for an Android device.
- Replace the outer cable with something cool.
Anybody have a good place to start? Like maybe the pin wiring and some soldering tips?
