Repairing Headphones with Microphone (TRRS Plug). Do you have a pair of headphones that have a microphone, bass boost, or some other feature that typical headphones don't have? This video demonstrates how to replace the plug on headphones with these features. I used Iphone earbuds that I got with my Iphone for this video demo. If you have photos you'd like to send me (of wire colors, etc.), my email address is: Richsmethods@gmail.com.
To purchase an inexpensive wire stripper, electrical tape, and solering gun, check out my Amazon eMarket. There is also a set of Bose In ear Headphones (in case you give up, ha). The link is located on my homepage on the right side or by clicking this link: http://astore.amazon.com/richsm-20
The plug you will need to purchase is a TRRS. I purchased mine at (just copy and paste the link):
