A few minutes ago, I stood up and pulled my headphone cable with my leg. It pulled my laptop almost off the table. The result was that my Sony MDR Z1000 headphone connector, the part that plugs into my laptop, got bent at a 45 degree angle, pointing in a completely off direction. I was mortified but my first instinct was to bend it back and it bent back easily. I plugged it in and it seems to be sounding ok, I don't notice anything bad, but I'm notorious for placebo effect bothering me and I can't tell if it's cause for concern in terms of audio quality or not.
If anyone knows about this stuff, can yo let me know if it's likely that my audio quality will suffer from it being bent and then bent back like that? It plugs in just fine now and appears straight, although there is a a bit of weird damage on the green circle washer things.
I really don't know any thing about this stuff. Lemme know what you think.
To be clear, it was bent 45 degrees away from straight, starting from that slightly damaged green circle, and I bent it back before taking this pic.
