Panasonic RP HTX7 Connector Repair - Color Codes

A friend asked me to fix the connector on his Panasonic RP HTx7 cans and I have a simple question.

In the cable there are 3 wires - red, green, and white. I just wanted to make sure which is the ground. I've had conflicting research that says it goes:

Left - green
Right - red
Ground - white

I've also seen places that say the ground is the GREEN and left is WHITE.

There is no manual online, any insight is greatly appreciated!

Hi fastlanestoner.
I think the standard is:
Red = Right (ring).
White = Left (tip)
Any remaining = ground.
With only three wires, use a DMM to find the two wires with the highest resistance, (about twice the impedance of the cans).
Those are left and right.
Then, with the cans on your head, find the wires with the two lowest resistances.
You will hear the crackling of the DMM while you are doing this.
This way you can hear what's left and right.
