Question about Bose TriPort Consumer Headphones
Headphones have two wires, of course, but whithin those two wires is a cluster of red wires and a cluster of copper colored wires on one side then in the other side is a cluster of green colored copper and a cluster of copper colored wires. On the new jack there are two tabs, one in the very center, another in the center but separated by an insulator then on the outside is a taller tab thats more like a half jacket with a hole in it and it is part of the jack that the outer collar screws to. How do I wire them, thanks

Of course. Just peal off the main isolation and connect wires according to color of their individual isolation. You can just twist them and wrap them with duct tape or solder them and wrap with duct tape.
My cat recently chewed trough 220 Volts stereo power cord (fortunately unplugged) and trough speakers cable too. They work perfectly again after quick fix while my room has become off-limit zone to my cat. ;-)
Better get your tomcat fixed or find him a girlfriend unless you'd like to risk him getting killed when he starts chewing some power cord.

if you are not handy, then no.
repair will require disassembly of the ear piece, splicing of the wire, and reassembly.

SOURCE: wire has been cut
get a different pair of headphones. then take your bose take off the cloth covering the speakers. unscrew the two screws one on top one on bottom. take out the speaker. unsolder the leads on both. take out the rubber cover from where the wire comes out of the headset. throw the wire away. take the other headfone. cut them right before the speakers. ipod headfones fwork great. take the two wire solder them to where u just un soldered the bose ones. leav i little slack in the headset. then glue where you took the rubber covers off. this is important so when they get caught on something it does not rip the leads off of the speaker. wait for gue to dry. test out the speakers. after that put speakers back in and screw them back on and put the cloth back over them. i just did this 10 minutes ago they work so much better. i did try to splice them but this way is so much better and you dont have to worry about the slice point ripping out of place.

At present, the square connector is what is called an "Optical" connector. It's purely digital and transmits digital data via what looks to us like a RED LIGHT. Your headphones are incompatible. Your heaphones have an analog connection on RCA Phono type connections. The type you usually get on the back of hifi equipment.
The pannasonics DO have a headphone socket, but it is the small 3.5mm type socket. a small round hole that looks slightly larger than a pin head. It normally has a small diagram of a pair of headphones above or below the socket to indicate what it is.
In order to connect your headphones to your set you will need a stereo,male 3.5mm jack to two RCA Phono jacks.
If your current lead on your headphones has "male" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold points sticking out.
If your current lead on your headphones has "female" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold surrounds with holes in.
With this in mind, if you have male ends you will require a stereo 3.5mm jack to stereo female Rca Phono vice versa so that they basically lock into eachother forming a "Constant chain".
I have tried to explain this as best I can, I hope you've managed to get the idea of what I'm saying.
You will either need this :
or this :
Sometimes the colours of connectors vary. Just remember that Red to Red (for right hand side) and White to White or Black To White or Black To Black (for left)
