How do I make a 2.5mm to 3mm headphone jack? Answered

 I've got all of the wires just not sure which ones go where. (2.5 is from old cellphone mic) Hopefully which color wires go to which : /


If you are stripping old cables like Orksecurity says like to like.

If your connectors are sealed units (i.e. not user serviceable) then you will benefit from using a multimeter in continuity mode to test which part goes to which wire.

Additionally if these are standard audio cables you will probably need to remove the almost invisible plastic coating on the signal wires which you can do most easily with a lighter.

Look at how it used to be hooked up; hook up the new one the same way. Tip goes to tip, ring goes to ring, sleeve goes to sleeve.
