    You should be fine, I extended mine by soldering wires onto where the buttons used to be as I don't have a nice connector like you do. Just keep it short, mine is only extended by about 6"

      thanks a lot!

      I have 7 wires and 7 buttons meaning these is 1 button 1 wire ??? I plan to extend for about almost 50 cm....would it be too much (worse ?) for what ??

        I would assume they would be alright. They probably operate how mine do, where the wires are pulled high and the button grounds it out to provide the "click". When I said too long, I meant don't try like 3-5 meters or something.
