So today I plugged in my beloved ATH M50s into my iPod and no sound came out, even at full volume. (I plugged in some old earbuds into the iPod, and sound came out like it should.)
I am very convinced that this is because just yesterday I was moving through a row of chairs in an auditorium, and the headphone cable got looped around an armrest as I was moving forward. So since the M50s were around my neck, I accidentally yanked (pretty hard) on the connection between the cable and the headphone.
Now that I examine it, the connection between the cable and headphone is not firm, and wiggles in a way it didn't before. I'd imagine the wires disconnected there.
What do I do? The ATH M50s don't have replacable cables, I don't think, and I have no wire soldering experience, and I don't know of any good repair services for this kind of thing.
As far as headphone repairs go I'd think this is a relatively easy one?
Any help would be appreciated~!!!
...as well as tips on preventing this kind of thing from happening... I keep my cable nicely wrapped around a oval cable holder in order to cut the length down to about 6 feet, but maybe I should thread it through my shirt too? :P
