Step 4: Start Stripping!
2) Using your wire stripper or some pliers, Pull off the 1/2" of black insulation you just scored to expose a bundle of foil wrapped wires.
3) Using your Xacto blade, slit open the foil shielding to expose the Black (headset), Metal (ground), and Red (microphone) wires.
Notice in Picture 2 how the colors of the wires match up with the headphone and mic jacks on your gaming headset
4) In Picture 3 you'll see that we've slipped the plastic housing from the 1/8" phone jack over the exposed wires so after we solder we can screw it all together.
