Step 1: Tools and Requirements
All you need for this instructable is-
- Soldering Iron
- Wire Stripper
Step 2: Cutting Out the Old Jack
Lets start with getting rid of the old jack, you can use a wire stripper to cut of the old jack. After getting that done strip the wire and you would find three smaller insulated wires inside. Heat the wire to a candle flame to get the insulation off. Then solder the wire as shown in the diagram make sure you get the coloured wires in the right order as shown in the picture.
Step 3: Sugru
Once you have soldered the wire, cut open a pack of Sugru. Mold the Sugru and use your creativity to get it in the shape of a earphone jack. I know I'm not a good artist but I still got the job done. Sugru takes 24 hours to set so you have to have some patience before you start using your earphones again.
