I have a fairly expensive pair of headphones however it is quite old. I recently discovered issues with the left side where it is much quieter than the right. All I wanted to know is if this problem could be fixed by replacing the current jack with new ones. I have done this before because I couldn't hear anything from one side and sometimes I just couldn't hear anything, however this is different so I was thinking that maybe the problem was with the speakers and not the wiring. Thanks in advance.
Left side quieter than right side

Have you checked the sound port to make sure it does not have a build up of ear crud in it?
Check the balance setting on your source as well to make sure it has not shifted to one side.
As you mentioned, cables are usually a works/doesn't work situation.
I've checked everything and its seems to be the headphones themsleves D: If it is the headphones I would just like to have an explanation of why one side is louder than the other. Is it because the speaker is damaged because I find that is quite difficult to accomplish considering they are housed in quite durable metal casing.
