post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am using my replaced cable for my hd amperior, It really struggles me when I try to plug it to my any mp3 devices.... they all been protect by the case, so every day I have to use my hd amperior with a giant 3.5 jack plug... the problem is I have to take off my mp3s' case, so I can plug the jack in.....

 

I am try to change the jack plug, that means I will have to DIV my cable....

I have no idea with it...

1,where can i buy the 3.5 jack plug? (prefer on amazon)

2.what other tools do I need to prepare? ( for non-knowledge people)

3,where can i get the work process?? (step by step)

You can get a 3.5mm jack from Radioshack locally. If you are willing to purchase elsewhere, Markertek, Redco and various other places stock them. I recommend the Switchcraft 35 series. You're going to need a soldering iron, wire strippers, and solder at the minimum. Home Depot or Lowes both have these items. There is a post here in the DIY forums, how to make an interconnect step by step with pics, it should have some information for you.

As a beginner, instead of doing a whole wire replacement buy an adapter.

http://www.amazon.com/Cellet-3-5mm-Mini-Jack-Adapter-iPhone/dp/B0013RTHEO/ref=pd_cp_cps_0

plug it into you mp3 than plug you headphones into the adapter.

 

 

 

There are other adapters as well, read some reviews.
