soldering headphone cables is very hard. would suggest you get some 3 strand wire , and a 3.5mm jack, and some scrap motherboard connectors

any photos of what you are talking about?
Okay,I will get them today, but please help me with the connections. Which wire goes where is what is confusing me!
A good simplified diagram would help me.

When I cut my headphones wire (2core) both the core wires had a single wire in them but half was copper and half red or blue. Why is that so? In the above, the aux wire has two insultaed wires in each of the two cores.

abhi, in the headphone wire, there are two sets of strands - the copper strands on the outside of both cores is the ground wire. the red/ blue cores contain the strands for the L/R channels
In the above case, there is only one set of strands inside each wire. the two black wires on the inside of the grounds, and the red & white for L/R channels.
in the above adaptor, the R- & L- are connected to the ground (black cables), and eventually connected together at the 3.5 mm connector's ground

Okay. So, precisely, how can I make the wire described above which has IPBUS on one side and 3.5mm jack on the other. Wherever I search I see ones with female RCA as the other end. Consider my headphone wire that I have cut. Is there anyway I could proceed with them?

Uhh, one more thing, in the above pictures, the two black wires are GROUND WIRES (both negatives) and the red and white are L+ and R+. Black is negative? as in L- and R-?
Can you label the L+, L-, R+, R- in the second pic above?

Oh my god! I bought this new 3.5mm audio cable and much to my surprise. I found that each of the two black wires had 1 coloured wire but some copper strands for negative charge. That's ablow, I spent 50bucks for the wire. What to do?

whatever you have posted in that thread - the red/blue inner wires with copper strands outside - that's pretty much impossible to solder. buy a 3.5 mm JACK, some regular 3 strand wire, and the connectors from a junked PC case


in the above case, the white & red from the motherboard connectors ( which will be connected to the pins corresponding to the R+ and L+ on the pioneer will have to be connected to the R&L on the 3.5 mm jack ( 2&1)
the black wires from R- and L- will be connected to the ground (3)

O bhai @abhipuru, just take your audio cable and a couple of 5mm headers to any radio repair shop, along with a printout of the pictures - they will be able to solder it as per the instructions given in the pictures.

I have a strong feeling that the blue/red wire is not going to work out. check if the contacts are working (continuity tester or equivalent) before going ahead with it.

Uhh. I have kinda made the cable so, I will try it out on my Head Unit. But, how do I configure it to recognise the input. I don't see Aux or something in my menu options. DEH 4850MPH
