I have the Asus Vulcan ANC Headphones and after tripping over the cable and rippng out the existing jack i have to replace it myself because Asus does not keep the cable I need as replacement parts, joy...
Basically I've spliced the cable and there are 4 wires, a red for right, blue for left, green ground and then there is this green and copper cable intertwined with one another. Now I'm not to sure how to rewire the cables. Am I right in assuming that the red would be soldered on the right, blue would be soldered onto the left, and the green and the intertwined cable would be soldered together onto the ground? I read this on a forum:
So... can someone please help me??Each + wire carries a certain amount of current... current which has to return back along the - or ground wire(s). If you use a single ground wire, it will be carrying double the current on the + wires. Granted, the currents involved in headphones are pretty small and a normal 24ga or up conductor can handle this easily, but in theory going double isn't going to hurt you. Plus it makes it much easier to convert to balanced (or bridged, whatever you want to call it) in the future.
Please and thank you in advance,
