if you see 2/3 cuts (gaps) along the banana plug you might just insert the strands and crimp it......then screw the outer metal tubing....if no cuts then soldering will do.....

Those are the once I've bought:  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200573351701?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

 

As far as I can see, they have to be either crimped or soldered?

But if they have to be soldered, then I must stick them into the connector, and solder them where the connector ends at the hole?

 

Okay.. I made a try, and this is what by end result looks like.. Pretty horrible since the caps are ugly as hell.. My next pair of cables (In the future) will be better..

I'll go see if they even work..

Try tinning the cable then insert it and put your iron in the highs settings this works for me in the past.

Heat it up real good and kinda seal it in there

something like that:

I'm guessing that sony would follow logic(yeah I know I'm an optimist). also they have to at least start with left at the tip for compatibility when using other headphones in the DAP. 

so here is my guess:

at the tip of the jack it has to be +left, so I guess they would then put the left mic, then +right, and right mic, and the - in last position. that's how how I would do it if I was sony. but really, I have zero idea about how THEY actually did it. ^_^

so I jumped in here hoping some wise man could save me before I decide to randomly connect stuff and pray for nothing to go bad.

 

any help is deeply appreciated, thanks.

I'll answer myself in case someone needs this one day. 

 

starting from the tip it's: 1=left  2=right 4="ground"

the signal was bleeding so much into 5 that I thought it was the ground... messed up and killed the 4th contact on the female jack in the process.

well I was already making one from 2 broken DAPs so it doesn't change much I ended up just switching the plug with the working one (so yeah I repaired nothing at all really, I just switched 2 components ^_^).

Yes and tinned  it until it's big enough to fit in the connector.

Got my steelex vacuum vise today. stuck it to my desk and picked the glass up with it. Damn this hobby thou, if my headphones and amp collection weren't enough, i now have a full soldering station now too. I just got to put the bench cabinet together now. I think that the guy that said "sorry about your wallet" lied to me, it should have been "Sorry of not having any future savings".

anyways some pics of my new vise.

Nice and compact, very tidy.  Oh, and I love that little helping hands guy.  He surrenders ;)  Looks like we have the same.  I'd take a pic, but it's not worthy, and too messy.
