    Default Headphone repair?

    Missus has had a pair of these superdry headphones and the jack plug was dodgy. After lopping off the end, a have found there are four cables instead of 3...

    a blue, red, green and copper wire

    Anyone know which is what and will a standard 3.5mm jack plug do?

    Yep thats right, look like it was fitted with an iphone/pod jack plug not a standard 3.5mm stereo one.
