Red should be right, you should test the other two to identify left and the last wire would be ground (unless someone else here has repaired this specific pair and can tell you). You originally stated "that you had replaced headphone jacks" before, but if you don't know or are unsure you could always stop by a guitar (music equip store) shop and if they have service it's not that expensive, they know what to do. I would refrain from burning off the fiber as Pennhaven stated as it's only going to expose the individual color coded wires as well (causing short) and he's right the fiber is probably just nylon strain relief within the cable.
