3.5mm and 2.5mm plugs can be soldered all right but the problem mostly is to
purchase the really fine cable with two inner conductors, both shielded.
Common "Stereo Shielded Cable" is commonly too fat and its use always results
in ugly and unwieldy kludges.
Sometimes I resorted to reusing the cables of old earphone sets, which I had
otherwise no use for anymore.
