Wiring for Razer kraken pro. NOT 7.1 Chroma.

The reason this device is under the chroma version is simply the pro version does not exist on the device list. But i have had quite a time with this headphone.

It has 5 wires, a white, copper, green, blue, and red. The copper wire seems to surround the white wire so i supposed it was the ground, so I connected it to the ground. The green wire seemed to be the left earphone so I soldered it, and the red wire seemed to be the right earphone so i soldered it. That left the white wire for the mic so I soldered that too. I tried many combinations of wiring so this is what I ended up with and the headset was working fine, but the mic was being picked up when i inserted it into an audio splitter on my pc, but was not recognized on my macbook. The audio of the mic on the pc was glitch, blurry, and so quiet it was in audiable. I’m wondering if this is of a wiring fault or a simple short in the circuit.

Hi @nutellanerd ,

Was it working OK on both devices before you had to repair it?

As not all devices are wired the same, it may be simply a case of the earth and mic being reversed due to the different wiring conventions used by manufacturers so that it works in one device and not in the other.

Here’s an image showing the two main wiring conventions being used.

If you wire the headphones to one convention, (perhaps the way that works for the device(s) that you use the most), you could use this-example only with the headset when necessary, so that the headphones will work with any device that is wired for the other convention.
