You want to use that wire? Why? Well, the wire used with headphones is often thin enough, especially the coaxial type cables after you strip the outermost insulator and remove the outer conductor. However the inner conductor, even though thin enough, is usually quite hard to solder.

What might you mean with "stereo wire"?

I usually use precut, prestripped, singlethreaded, silver plated, oxygen free, high conductivity, solid copper conductor wire with Kynar insulator. Like the one in this picture.

It doesnt have to be Kynar wire, Kynar is just simply to solder.

The easiest place to get a piece of wire is from an old IDE cable you got lying around. Use an ATA-133 cable for the best results.
