It's not braided. It's not shielded. It's not balanced.
1. Cable is not braided - it's twisted (to the extent that it looks like braided).
2. There is no shield around left and right _pairs_ of wires.
3. Connector has 4 pins: R+,R-,L+,L-. But there's no 5th pin for shield, because there is no shield, remember? Balanced plug has 5 pins: TRRRS. You can use supplied TRRS-to-TRRRS adapter, but its shield pin will not be connected to the sheild because there is none.
