I bought cheap and rhodium 3.5mm 4 pole jacks from Aliexpress, both types of connectors don't work with my Sony MDRXB400 headphone which has only 3 wires, the sound is too flat.

But the rhodium one worked well with creative sound blaster fury headset with has 4 wires.

So, what to do? Is there a difference between 3 and 4 pole jacks? Should I buy 3 pole rhodium jacks?
