Broken Headphones Oh Noes
So I'm sure you've gotten tons of these already, but, I have a pair of broken earphones. Two pairs actually. On both, the right side is broken (as in, no sound).
I took them apart and found that on one of them the coating of the wire seems to have melted or something (there was sticky black stuff all over the inside), and on the other the diaphragm thingy is detached.
So at first I thought there were frayed wires somewhere, but the electromagnets on both still work (I tested them with a piece of metal, the attraction was still really strong), so I figured that there must be something wrong with the diaphragm (what are those things called? the plastic cone thingies?).
My question is: Is there a way to test the diaphragm thing, and if that's the problem, is it fixable?
Thanks very much in advance.
