Hi all !

First post here so be gentle ^^ ..

Few weeks ago i got myself the Strix 2.0 gaming headset that i like very much. Thx Asus for this great product btw. But i do have a problem with it .. . My fault, i did manage to slam my chair a few times on the splitter cable (this cable) (http://richardtech.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/strix-8.jpg?223b08) .. and long story short my mic doesn't work anymore.

So angry about it .. I did manage to unplug the headset and stick it into my samsung mobile just for a mic test and it works... But when i stick it into the splitter cable.. the mic is dead.

So my question is simple .. where can i buy a replacement splitter cable ? Did try the shop but i could not find any. I would much appreciate any help regarding this ...

Thank you in advance and kudos !

Pretty sure any four-pole 3.5mm splitter cable from eBay or Amazon will sort you out mate, they're not a hard piece to source. Good luck!

Thank you juzz86 for the fast reply. What i need is a 3.5mm Stereo Female to 2-male Y-splitter audio cable. And yes i did manage to find some on amazon or ebay ... Even a 6ft one .. yet not gold plated nor braided :( ... Guess that's why i asked to where i can find an original.


PS: Is there any difference between them? I knew some of them where optimized for smartphones (as the one i got in the box with my headset, for old mobile phones.. fact is that they look the same.. gah!)

Sorry for the long wait mate, my notifications aren't working.

There are different female connectors based on what you're plugging into. An iPhone uses a different set of poles than most other things.

A regular eBay one will do you fine, as long as you don't get one for an iPhone. And I wouldn't stress about the gold plating and braid - on an extender they're just gimmicks. Good luck with the search!
