Can i make a stereo type plug with only 2 wires or will it only be mono?

I have seen pics of the female wall jack that only has 2 wires but is stereo sound. I am unsure if this is effective.


No, you probably looked at a shielded twin pair cable like this one:

And that is actually four leads, not two.

A twin core cable like this one could also be used (it is only three leads as the shield is shared): enter image description here
