Question about Sennheiser Audio Players & Recorders
I stripped of the broken part to replace it with another stereo mini-jack plug, but when i stripped the wire of my sennheiser i noticed that there were not three, but four copper whires running through (copper-red-green-blue). Since I have no idea what this implicates, I would like to ask for your help. Thanks!

SOURCE: replacing headphone connector
The impedance or resistance of the two different sets of wires might be different. The higher the impedance the less signal. If your cable is long enough you are better off spending the five or so dollars for a new plug. Red is right, green or blue is left and copper is ground.( Usually) Unfortunately not all manufacturers agree. Also what could have happened is a short between the wires that you soldered.Make sure they are physically separated from each other and insulated.

The bare copper conductor wire is the screening/common earth to the two signal wires of green and red. The important connection is the copper wire which goes to the jack plug earth which is the section furthest from the tip. The other two are the left and right signal connections. If you get these the wrong way round you will just have to swap them over. Check if they are the right way round by using the balance control on your amplifier or whatever. Have you checked that the problem is not with the headphone amplifier within your equipment? Don't rely on OK sound from loudspeakers as the headphones may be fed from separate op-amp output chip. Try another pair of cheap and cheerful headphones to make sure.
