Difficult, indeed, but I made it, and it works! Great satisfaction! One modification in the process, I’ve made – instead of burning the isolation inside wires, I separate the wires, and cut out isolation, because it was unable to solder in different way.

Step 5 wrong! The Mic is the red&green cable and the gold cable doesn't exist in my earpods. There is a 6th cord however which is a nylon like support cord.

The gold wire is hidden inside the red-green wire. Unwind the red-green to find it. The gold is the mic, the red-green is the mic ground. If you use the original jack (cut away the moulded on white plastic) you can use a multimeter to find the mic connection which is on the other side of the ground connection. Thanks for the page. Good luck

I recycled the same factory jack and identified the poles with a multimeter. I followed the same instructions. Their volume is lower than usual. Thanks for the page.
