Repairing Corsair Void gaming headset, wire color help
« on: September 12, 2016, 05:39:17 am »
Hello! I recently broke my gaming headset, a corsair void with dolby, and am looking at repairing it.
My headset has a mic, volume adjustment and mute button.
I have a soldering iron, solder W/flux, helping hand, spare trrs plug etc.
my problem is that after cutting and stripping the wires I dont know what wires go where, and I dont have a multi-meter to test them out on.
List of wires:
     -  green wire
     -  red wire
     -  blue and copper wire
     -  copper wire
     -  white wire
note that the regular copper wire was wrapped around the white wire.
I know the basic trrs layout, I just dont know what goes where. Please help, I would hate to throw away such an amazing headset over something soo stupid. Thanks!

Looking at the cable that should be a USB headset, not a "traditional" one do you confirm this?. On the website the 7.1 model is a USB version.
If it's a USB, white and green are data, red is +5V and blue/copper is gnd toghether with the copper as shielding .
If you still have the connector, you can easily discover what is what probing with a continuity tester between the usb connector and the cables. Once done that, you can buy a usb connector and solder it.

I'm basically still a rookie and because of this, even with the best intentions, I often say bullshits

It uses a trrs jack that goes into a 7.1 dolby adapter, the adapter itself has the usb, not the headphones. So it isnt a usb, its a standard headset jack. Thanks for the help though!

Why not go and buy a $2 multimeter? Or just make one out of an LED and a battery?

green wire =left channel
red wire = right channel audio
blue and copper wire =ground  audio

copper wire =ground mic
white wire   = mic

if you have a jack with both the mic and audio .
starting from the tip(of the jack ) to the base
-green wire (tip)
-red wire
-blue copper wire together with the copper wire
-white (base)

if you have separate jack for audio and mic
audio jack
starting from the tip(of the jack ) to the base
-green wire (tip)
-red wire
-blue copper wire(base)

mic jack
starting from the tip(of the jack ) to the base
-white (tip)
-copper wire(base)

yap , a sketch is attached for better understanding. 

i assumed that  you are trying to put jack to the cable ,and not to connect the cable to the headset.
Am i right?

Hi I was wondering if you could maybe help me with the wiring diagram for my Corsair VOiD wireless SE mic. I have accidently ripped it out after it broke off and was hanging by the wires.

Attached are some pictures to explain.

I have indicated the 2 colors I could identify due to a small piece of wire that was stuck in the solder.

I would be very grateful if you could help? :scared: :palm:
