Question about TDK MP100 Professional Headphones
I've got the replacement jack,and yes I've done this before.My problem is with the wires,they are kind of like a fabric,or twisted up in a fabric.Not exactly sure how to go about wiring them.Thank You
Each of the rubber covered cords running to each ear piece has two fine strand wire bundles inside. The right ear piece has a red colored strand and a copper colored strand. The left ear piece has a green colored strand and a copper colored strand. The wires are coated with an insulation lacquer. The lacquer burns off when you heat the wire for soldering.
Repair item: 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack, shrink tubing
Plan for strain relief:. These headphone wires can't take any tension at all. You need to crimp the black cords to the headphone jack somehow.
Slide strain relief and headphone jack housing over the over the rubber covered headphone cord.
Hold each headphone cord in a "third hand" soldering assist tool and tease the green, red and copper bundles apart..I wore a 10x Magnavisor and I used a sewing needle and a bright light.
Twist the copper colored strands from both headphone cords together. They are the common ground wires. The copper colored bundle will attach to the headphone jack ground.
Apply a dab of solder to the end of each of the three bundles of wire. You will see and smell the insulating lacquer as it burns off. Keep most of the wire bundle cool.
Position the two strand headphone cord and the 3.5 mm headphone jack in the third hand soldering stand.
