Another Gold plated plug is also $4.19 but it only has one plug in the package. This one requires NO SOLDER:

Great instructions...thanks!

One suggestion: After inserting the wires, use tweezers to "wrap" them around the posts and making sure no wire is touching another or its post, then do the listening test BEFORE soldering! (Some people won't care if the right and left channels are switched, but many others probably would, for example people who listen to classical music, where having the violins on the right side might be quite disconcerting...pun intended <grin>).

Best regards!



That was really
nice post i really like it thanks for the share.. That was i must say it is
really awesome and nice post, academic coursework writing is the one who will deliver you the best
assignment..

Alright, I was in my class around 4:30 to make up some work, jamming out to music. After break time was over, I came back and discovered they stopped working; the wires near the jack had probably shorted or disconnected. These are skullcandy earbuds, and I've looked over the Internet for methods, but I'm not sure which is right for me or if there is any that's compatible.

I'm using a pair of Skullcandy headphones (actual ones, not earbuds) and I have a slightly different problem. When playing music, having the jack inserted fully causes the musical parts to sound tinny and the voice is almost inaudible. Can this solution be used to fix that problem on a different set of headphones? I am a broke student and I love these headphones, so I would really rather not get a new pair.

I also have this problem. My headphone used to work fine. But one day this problem occurred. Now I have to insert it about 75-80% in order to work properly. See the difference between 1st and 2nd images. Please reply if someone has the solution.
