I bought 10 feet of Mogami 2534 to make a HD650 cable, still waiting for it to come:).

So, you would wire your female to male:

 

Female Tip to Male Ring

Female Ring to Male Tip

Sleeve to Sleeve

 

Typically the tip is the farthest forward solder point on the internals of the connector.  On most you can tell that it's connected to the center of the plug.

i know that tip is left etc. but the how to i know wicht one is wich with a female plug. with a male plug i even can use a multimeter if i am not sure. both the tip and ring connection look the same

I was thinking of using a male 3,5 mm and a female 3,5 and connect them in a way that it will change the left and right channel. Only problem is how to i know wich one is left or right at the female plug.

never mind. just found this.

If you have a continuity tester (or multimeter) and an uncabled male plug lying around: Map its solder points, plug it into the socket, and then map the socket's solder points.

Thx.

Also, in that case I believe (but I'm not certain) that the "tip" solder point is the shorter one.

My wire samples have arrived!
Now I have an understanding of the common Mogami and Canare numbers.

Thanks!
Much Appreciated!

Maybe look for a indented dimple? Dunno without a meter but on the radio shack stereo female jacks, the right channel is dimpled so maybe they did the same? Worth a shot.

The longest tab is *almost* always the ground

Some Radio Shack jacks and plugs have wiring diagrams on the package.
