Headset wiring - Page 5

post #41 of 51
You sure there was only 1 wire? I'd be willing to bet there were at least 2, possibly 3 wires inside the black cable.

Either way, it's likely to be wired up the same way. 1 ground, 1 or 2 signal wires. I don't have a headset I could take apart to look at to make sure, though.

I stripped a section of the black wire down. From the looks, it seems like its a white sleeved wire inside, surrounded by copper insulation, wrapped in the original black sleeve. I'm confused.

I separated what I thought it was insulation versus the wire.

The white is signal and the bare copper is ground. My guess is you could get away with a mono jack for it (or else wire the white wire to both tip and ring).

All done! Thank you both. Everything works, and it sounds great.

Sometimes I'm really glad I don't have money to blow. I learned so much while doing this. I even feel comfortable soldering now. Before I was always sketched out. I couldn't have done it without you guys. Thanks a ton. If it happens again, I'll actually try to fix a few things that could have been better. Like using the blue wire for the right ear that way the exposed wire matched the theme. Next project would be making key binds for volume. Silly me and my $5 keyboard doesn't have fancy volume controls.

I'm digging this back up, I just tried my mic out for the first time in a voice chat, the sound is super static but you can still hear me, but I'm soft. I'm not in a loud environment, Did I wire something wrong? Or is it just the stock mics problem?

There could be a solder joint that's not quite right if it's static-y; but it could also just be the stock mic is poor quality (or a combination of the 2).
