How can I replace this 3-prong airplane jack on Blackbox m10 headphones? Answered
I've been given a set of Phitek BlackBox m10 noise-cancelling headphones once used in an airplane.
It has a three-prong headphone jack which I am trying to replace with a 3.5mm stereo jack.
A similar question was asked before about a different set of headphones. The consensus seemed to be the third smaller jack provided power and may be able to be connected via a USB.
However I am new to electronics and couldn't follow along. And I don't think there was an instructable produced from it.
I want to use it mainly for my amp and listening while on the computer.
The wires in the m10 are blue, red, yellow, green, black and white, along with some loose fibre I think is insulation.
I have no idea which cables are which, or anything concerning specifics about voltage and so on.
But I have a soldering station, wire cutters and a lot of patience.
If someone could provide some help that I as an electronics newbie could follow, I would greatly appreciate it!
I'll be sure to take photos and post a detailed instructable if I get it right!
Thanks guys, been busy, though I promise I'll finish it.
I had a stab at softly prying it open along the seam [red square]. It kept snapping back, and an edge seemed to be held down tightly, leading me to think I'd snap things if I tried to open it.
Though there must be a way and the seam looks like the obvious point. Should I just force it?
The other screw sections I opened [blue square] weren't helpful.
