Here I will show you how to repair the cable of your badly damaged headphones and basically give them another chance!
Or if you wish to do like me and save yourself $150 by buying busted headphones from ebay for about $20 and then fixing them like a pro!
(This instructable is very similar to another that I've posted, but this is in more detail and shows the whole headphones repair. )
Step 1: Tools and Bits Needed
This will keep the joints tough as well as flexible!
You may need:
- Cable cutters
Step 2: Cut Bad Sections
Step 3: Prepare Wires for Soldering
Then apply the solder to the ends.
Step 4: Connect
I used some heat shrink tubing for the insulation.
Step 5: Fixing the Jack
Step 6: Extract the Metal Tip
This is where attention needs to be paid to remember which wire goes where.
Step 7: Reconnect the Cable
Keep the wires short and as tidy as possible.
Step 8: Seal the Joints With Polyurethane Silicone
Use polyurethane silicone! This will ensure that the rubber stays soft and flexible. There may be other types of suitable silicones, but I do not know, you have to tell me.
