Some answers are correct but not clear enough,at least for me (at that time).
So I decided to create this thread to help others who get the same problem with me.
Using Soldering Iron is required.
Don't do this if you are not used to a soldering iron.
Or you can ask someone with the capability using this guide.
Audio Jack/cable is somewhat broken or audio somewhat has noise or no audio at all.
- Buy a new headset
- Fix it yourself
To fix it yourself you need to know 3 things:
- Where the damage(s) is(are).
- Type of Jack
- Wiring Diagram
Locating the damage:
- Open the remote control using your finger nail.
- Use a Multimeter (set it to resistance meter) to locate which connection is broken.
(Follow the Multimeter link if you don't know what it is).
- If you/your parents don't have a Multimeter, try using a small light bulb (1.5volt),an AA battery, a piece of PVC pipe (the length of the battery) & 2 pieces of cable (15 cm / 6 inches each would be enough).
Try to build a flashlight with that,but use the other cable as a tester by connecting it to only 1 side of the battery.
- If the broken part is/are the earpiece part,then you are lucky
It's easier to fix & there is someone already posting about it here.
- Else...some soldering is needed.
- You'll need 3.5mm TRRS Jack (not the ordinary TRS jack)
- Cut the Jack part & peel the cable.
You'll find 6 wires after peeling the cable.
- Check it first (using a Multimeter) if the wires are not the broken part.
- If the wire(s) is(are) the broken part,You'll need a cable with the same structure (6 wires/sub cables inside)

- Tip --> Left Channel
- First Ring --> Right Channel
- Second Ring --> Ground
- Sleeve --> Microphone
- Green --> Left Channel (+)
- Red --> Right Channel (+)
- Blue --> Right Channel (-),
Red-Blue(inside the shielded one) -->Left Channel(-),
Copper --> Microphone (-)
- White --> Microphone (+)
Solder the wire sequentially according to both diagrams.
It work very nice,even the remote control
I hope it helps
