Everyone had this time in life- broken headphones jack... again.
I came up with idea that help me repair my headphones and make them stronger after repairing.
Just using some hot glue and basic skills.
After following my instructions you will be able to finish with plug show on the photo.
Step 1: Hey! What happened to my headphones?!- What would you need to repair them?
No! My headphones jack is broken again!
What to do?
There is some posibilities:
-Buy new headphones- What a waste of money! I like my headphones! Why would I change them ?
-Repair broken jack using new plug- Ok... headphones are working correctly... but my headphones isn't as pretty as before! I want them to look good!
-Use this instructable to make your headphones plug look good- hey! I can save some money using old plug!
I don't know what option would you choose, but definitly I'll chose third possibility ;)
I wanted my headphones look good, and I didn't want to use ordinary replacement plug from electronic store.
Just using some hot glue and plexi i made something that will help you repair your jack pretty way!
So... your headphones are broken again.
What would you need to bring them back to life and give them non-zombie look?
-Broken headphones (very useful when you repair them)
-HOT Glue! or sugru (chose your weapon!)
-Some 1cm thick plexiglas
-Drill - preferably with drill pres
There is other posibility, you can 3D print the mold, I've prepared *.stl files for those who have acces to the 3D printer.
I don't have any posibility to print my own mold ( you know... Poland...) 3D printing of that small object would cost me as much as 1KG of PLA filament so...
File named "split" is for making joints on headphones cable like the spots where cable splits on two.
