A few months ago I managed to bend my 3.5 mm jack nearly 90 degrees from where it's supposed to be (I was lucky it didn't snap off entirely). I bent it back to its original position which mostly fixed the issue although I've occasionally had sound cut out of either my left or right channel. When I fiddle around enough I can get the same sound I had when I bought the headphones, but I'd rather get the jack repaired as it seems like it would be relatively easy to fix & sometimes the sound being cut out can be relatively subtle. I don't have any soldering experience but I think sending the headphones back to Audio Technica's repair center would be unnecessarily costly for what appears to be an issue with just the plug itself. What should I do? Is it possible I may have damaged something other than the jack itself? Would I be able to find a replacement plug?
