How to Make Your Own Headphone Extension Cable

A headset extension cord is multitudinous and interrelated. Sound systems are used to associated to connect one element of a home sound system to another. Create an interrelated extension to learn basic binding and electronics skills by yourself, and have all that you need to set up the wiring of your own home theater. You just need only three wires to make your headset extension easily at home. One wire transmits the left channel, the other transfers the right channel, and the third into the ground.

Method Of Making Headphone Extention Cable

Step 1

Cut down 1/2 inch of insulation from both sides of a three-conductor cable. Cut the three wires inside once they lay bare. Then, plug in the soldering iron.

Step 2

Next, take heat shrink and slip two pieces of it onto the cable. Make sure you place them in the middle so the soldering iron doesn’t cause them to prematurely shrink because of the heat.

Step 3

Unscrew the male and female 3.5mm jacks, revealing the terminals inside. Slide the housings onto the cable. The longest terminal which connects to the ground is the “sleeve”. The middle length terminal which connects the right channel is the “ring”. The shortest terminal that connects the left channel is the “tip”.

Step 4

Later choose a wire and around the 3.5mm male jack’s sleeve, wrap the bare copper whilst wrapping the other side of the wire around the female 3.5mm jack’s sleeve. Then wire the male’s ring to the female’s ring and the male’s tip to the female’s tip.

Step 5

Melt some solder onto the soldering iron. This will check the temperature and help the solder flow.

Step 6

Put the soldering iron under the male jack’s sleeve, and add up a small amount of solder on top of it. As soon as you remove the soldering iron, there should be a shiny joint left behind. Next, solder each wire to each terminal.

Step 7

Wrap any bare copper you can see, attached to the tips and rings of both jacks nicely with good quality electrical tape to block off short-circuits. Screw the housing back onto the jacks.

Step 8

Slide a piece of heat shrink over the housing of each jack and heat them well with the heat gun.
