XBOX Turtle Beach X11 Headset Wires Cut -- Need help with rewiring

Text:

I am having an issue with my Turtle Beach X11 headset cables. My cat chewed through the cable today just after the coupler where the 3 wires (USB, Green and Gold) connect. I had to cut off the coupler because the break was too close to get any wire to feed out of. Now I'm looking at 3 sets of wires on one end and 4 separate sets on the other. I've gone through and tried to twist them back separately but I'm not getting power to the remote unit. I've checked the wires for any additional damage down the line and the wires are free of any punctures.

Here's a picture of what the wires do: [http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://i613.photobucket.com/albums/tt215/Deftones1210/1202830686_Ear-Force-X1-Wireing-Diagram.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.avforums.com/forums/xbox-360-hardware/1454552-headset-lcd-monitor-no-speakers-amp.html&h=490&w=359&sz=25&tbnid=Ycek4CqZqWBH3M:&tbnh=89&tbnw=65&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dturtle%2Bbeach%2Bx11%2Bwiring%2Bdiagram%26tbm%3Disch%26tbo%3Du&zoom=1&q=turtle+beach+x11+wiring+diagram&hl=en&usg=__vp1sRHn-V3XWZSAB-zm5gJUOB_Y=&sa=X&ei=543sTbHGNo2Etgea2vzAAQ&ved=0CF8Q9QEwFg&dur=319|Wiring Guide]

'''###THREE SEPARATE WIRES BEFORE COUPLER###'''

When I describe a wire as being insulated with two colors it's not the sheathing that's a different color, there are actually two different colored wires within the sheath.

'''[USB]'''

--Gold and Blue copper wires twisted

--Blue{insulated}

'''[Green Headphone]'''

--Red{insulated}

--Green{insulated}

--Gold copper wire

'''[Peach Microphone]'''

--Red and Gold copper wire twisted

--Blue and Gold wires{insulated}

----------------------------------------------

'''###MAIN WIRE AFTER COUPLER###'''

This wire has 4 main wire twists with subsets of wires within each main set. Note: all the wires that are wrapping around insulated wires are exposed to each other.

'''[1st Wire]'''

--Blue and Gold copper wire wrapped around

--Blue[insulated]

'''[2nd Wire]'''

--Red{insulated}

--Gold copper wire wrapped around the red wire

'''[3rd Wire]'''

--Green{insulated}

--Gold copper wire wrapped around the green wire

'''[4th Wire]'''

--Blue and Gold{insulated}

--Red and Gold copper wires wrapped around the blue and gold

I've tried connecting just the USB cables to their matching sets and getting power to the control unit but the LED light on the control unit is not coming on. I've also tried just wrapping all 4 exposed sets of wires together but that doesn't help either.

If you have any insight I will be forever greatful.

Thanks.
