Need help in figuring out wires for audio jack replacement.

So I recently broke the audio jack of my Sennheiser OCX685i and I decided to replace it with a new jack.But I cannot figure out which wire goes where in the replacement jack.There are 4 wires and I am using this replacement jack So which wire is to be soldered where.
Thanks in advance. UPDATE:- This might help the white wire was covered with same fabric and copper wire hope this helps.

  1. this might help a bit.

    I'm not sure which is the ground in your case. I would thing that it is:
    gold: ground
    red: right audio
    whit: left audio
    blue: mic
    But I cannot say that that is correct. the diagram shows were each go. now which is which is the question. hope that helps. =]


  2. Ignore the right half. Use a multimeter to test conductivity between the parts of the jack and the solder points.

    Gold (bare wire) is almost always ground (shield/sleeve). So if it doesn't work, there are only 5 other possible combinations of the remaining 3 wires.
  3. UPDATE:- This might help the white wire was covered with same fabric and copper wire hope this helps.

    that fabric and stuff is the cables insulation.

    connect the wires to the pins indicated by the numbers in the above pic as follows:
    1: White wire (left audio)
    2: Red wire (right audio)
    3: Blue wire (mic)
    4: Gold wire (ground)
  5. Thanks will try this as soon as I recieve my replacement jack.
