Comments:

the copper surrounds a white sheathed wire, so there are 5 wires to connect to 4 poles

Many thanks Andy I have now found the white sheathed wire. Can you tell me the colour sequence for soldering the wires to the 4 poles.

I'm not sure. Its a question I'm waiting for a proper answer to. So far I have: Green - tip/p1, red - p2, copper twist blue - p3, white - p4 (mic). I'm not sure if this correct, getting a lot of buzzing which could be due to my poor soldering! Like I say I have asked the question, Turtle Beach are being very quiet. this is the only other place I have found any reference to this problem.

Hi Andy - I can confirm that your information - Green - tip/p1, red - p2, copper twist blue - p3, white - p4 (mic) - worked correctly for me when replacing a 4 pole plug on my Turtle Beach PX-22 headset - works fine now. Thanks - this is only place on the internet where I found this information!!

I have a final answer to this issue. This for the Turtle Beach PX-22 Headset with a broken plug. The plug is inserted into the Amplifier which in turn plugs into a PC via a USB connector. The plug needs to be low profile or narrow as it wont fit into the amplifier otherwise.

The following cable wire colour to 4 pole plug as follows:

Green - tip;

Red - ring 1;

White - ring 2;

Blue and copper twisted and soldered to - sleeve/ring 3.

I am pleased to say this works perfectly. Additionally, I bought a new cable - 4 pole plug to 4 pole plug. Cut it in half and connected the wires based on 'buzzing through' to the plug with my multi-meter as the internal wire colours in the replacement cable were different colours to the turtle beach internal wires. It was much less bother than using a brand new 'blank' narrow profile 4 pole plug (too much of a challenge to my soldering skills and eyesight!).

I hope this helps for anyone with the same or similar issues.

Hi, when I was doing this I found six wires, red, green, blue, copper and two different whites. Is this what you found too? Or do I have a different set up?

by

I had the 5 that were described in the post - not 6.

Hey, I have a white insulated wire wrapped into the copper wire, should I separate them?

I fixed it with:

Old jack was wired like:

tip (ring 1),ring 2,ring3,ring4

green,red,blue + ground (copper),white

It seems different than above. I cut the old jack first and measured resistance through the wires.

Hi,

Here are two examples.

It is 4 wire cable with a shield but you should be able to use the shield as a 5th wire, just insulate it inside the plug. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1m-E108998-2P...

Alternatively you could use this and just cut one wire off at each end. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ROUND-TELEPHO...
