My friend accidentally pulled my JVC XX headphone wire, no more audio. Any ideas? Answered

I opened up the headphones, and at the speaker the wire is still intact and connected to the speaker. I was thinking I'd try splicing. Any ideas?


Tug the wire gently between your fingers, in short sections, say 50mm/2" or so, all the way from the phones to the jack. If you're lucky, you'll find a section with distinctly more "give" in it - that's the break. Cut it out, or put another jack and socket at that point.


The wire may have been pulled at the jack. What kind of wire is it. Does it have a thick rubber insulator on it or do the wires look like colored wires? If its the later then you will have a hard time splicing them.
