Converting Ultimate Ears custom iPhone cables for JH Audio 13 Pros

Want a full iPhone compatible Microphone/Volume/Control cable for your JH Audio IEMs? The mic cable they sell only has the single control button as well as a Mac, and its HUGE:

Jerry Harvey’s old company, however, has a nice compact offering:

The issue here is that Ultimate Ears has a different plug/termination connector between the cables and the actual IEM… but it turns out, after testing the pinouts of the UE cable, it will work, it just needs a haircut…

 

So with my handy-dandy dremmel tool I carefully removed the plastic (which is a little “squishy” and not completely hard)

If you’re going to do this yourself, a few pointers:

The connectors have a flat side and a side that bumps out to the cable:

I cut the sleeve off of the UE Cable at 90 degrees, but in hind sight, you want a slight angle where there is more plastic on the sides.
